Resistance 3, the upcoming entry in one of the PlayStation 3′s exclusive series from Insomniac Games, has officially gone gold. The game is ready to ship out to gamers so that they may mount up and collectively ride on some aliens.

To celebrate the official status update of the game, Sony and Insomniac have released a brand new trailer showcasing the gameplay, characters, cinematics and story. Catch that at the top of this post.

Sony also announced that the Resistance 3 disc will be packed with extra, free content.

When you pick up your copy of Resistance 3, you’ll also be getting access to playable PlayStation demos for titles like Killzone 3, MotorStorm Apocalypse (both in 2D and 3D!) and inFAMOUS 2, as well as a host of trailers and developer videos from some of your favorite PlayStation titles, includingUNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception, Starhawk, God of War: Origins, and SOCOM 4. We’re also sprinkling in lots of content from our friends over at Sony Pictures and Sony Music, including movie trailers and music videos from leading artists like Ozzy Osbourne, Incubus, Foo Fighters, and AC/DC. So lots of good stuff to check out.

In the quick moments of gameplay featured in the trailer above, you’re able to see some of Insomniac’s finest work: the weaponry. I’ll stake claim and say that one of Insomniac‘s strongest qualities is their ability to create positively wondrous, loony, satisfying and addictive weaponry. Between the Ratchet & Clank franchise and Resistance, Insomniac has deployed some of the best combat tools in all of gaming.

My favorite weapon from the Ratchet & Clank arsenal? The Groovitron.

Resistance 3 is set to arrive exclusively for the PlayStation 3 on September 6th in North America. As more news for the game, including any post-launch DLC, comes up, we’ll be all over it. Until then, get pumped for some of the finest weaponry in gaming.
