Resistance 3 Heading To Alice Springs

Sony Playstation 3 News FPS

In Resistance: Fall of Man, players travel across Great Britain. The setting shifts to the United States for the next two installments. That’s the campaign settings in a nutshell. In multiplayer, however, Resistance 3 is heading to the Alice.

Insomniac has included Australia’s most central city in its multiplayer as a playable map. It does contains several buildings, which means high vantage points, but the main focus will be on the street and a dusty car yard, which means expect to get close… real close.

Below is why Insomniac has decided to include the red centre as a map for multiplayer, even including a bit of back story on how the Alice came to be this way:

Australia has always had an interesting place in the lore of Resistance, being the site of a gigantic refugee camp called Avalon One, and for years remaining a safe Haven even as Europe fell.

Unfortunately, the enormous amount of refugees strained food supplies, and Civil War erupted in 1952. Eventually, as with everywhere else on the planet, the Chimera arrived. Now the remnants of civilisation on the continent fight back in one of the most inhospitable climates to the Chimeran menace.

The Alice Springs map is an Insomniac favourite for its small town feel, with many small interiors perfect for close-quarters combat.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
