On the heels of just about every other popular Sony franchise collection comes yet another bundle. This time the lucky series is Resistance, Insomniac Games’ brown and gritty FPS series where Earth is on the verge of collapse and humans are struggling to defeat the aliens with their outdated technology.
No, it’s not the most original premise in the world, but the Resistance games do have a following thanks to Insomniac’s wild weapon designs and the fact that PlayStation fans need an exclusive series to counter Halo and Gears of War with in forum wars.
All three games in the series will be included in the bundle for $40, and of the three games, Resistance 2 is probably the most noteworthy in the bunch. It has the highest rating of all three Metacritic scores, and its original spin on mulitplayer received a lot of praise at the time for adding classes and RPG elements to a traditionally action based campaign. Gearbox perfected the formula of a loot dropping RPG/FPS hybrid in the Borderlands games, but they have a lot to be thankful for with Insomniac laying the groundwork.
The Resistance Collection will be released exclusively for the PlayStation 3 this winter. No release date has been finalized yet, but Sony has promised one in the upcoming weeks.
