Sony’s revealed new details on the new Survival multiplayer mode for Resistance Burning Skies.
As detailed on the PlayStation Blog, this new mode will divide players into six humans and two Chimera per team. When a human is killed they’ll be transformed into a Chimera, with the winner being the last human standing.
“We really wanted to offer something that was unique to Resistance, keeping with the franchise’s theme around humanity’s struggle to survive against overwhelming odds,” said product manager Phil Lynch.
“We wanted the game to start relatively simple for the humans and then become increasingly harder over time, much like the way the Chimera invaded Asia, then Europe and then America in a flood.
“Previous Resistance games have had modes similar to this, but Survival is our own special twist to create a new mode that focuses on the balance of power changes.”
In addition, Sony has also announced a new pre-order incentive which will see you automatically start multiplayer at level 5, as well as getting three extra character avatars and a Vita lock screen theme. The pre-order bonus is available at participating retailers and does not seem to be applicable to online purchases.
