This is why we can’t have ni- oh wait, I read it wrongly. To give thanks to all the participants in the Resistance 3 beta, Insomniac Games are giving them the Bowman’s Insult in the form of the Double Bird taunt and a Hale skin. Players who have participated in the beta test of Resistance 3 received an email that details everything. Players who log onto Resistance 3 between now and the end of the beta will get two goodies for free. The first goodie being a Hale skin that you can use, and getting the Hawaiian Good Luck Sign as a taunt.
After 3 long years the time is almost upon us. Resistance 3 will soon ship to the masses. But before it does we wanted to take this opportunity to thank all you fans. Not only have you given us valuable feedback, but you have supported us and without you, there would be no Insomniac. Never has this been more prevalent than in our Resistance 3 Beta. It has not been the smoothest sailing, but the feedback and help we received from Beta participants has been invaluable.
To start we wanted to get everyone back together for one last go at the Beta before launch. We would like as many players as possible to join us and celebrate the conclusion of the Beta and the launch of Resistance 3. We are offering all players (starting August 30th) an exclusive MP skin- R2 SRPA Nathan Hale. All you have to do is jump on the Beta and go a few rounds between August 30th and September 4th. The Hale skin will then be ready for use when you pop in your new copy of R3.
But wait there’s more! While many people love and praise the new direction of Resistance 3’s MP, we also wanted to give a nod to longtime fans. We are announcing a new playlist called *Classic Hardcore*. It’s got all the exciting R3 action minus Berserks and abilities. This is for those players who want to go toe-to-toe without the extras. Classic Hardcore will be available Day 1!
We are not content on ending things there though. We know Resistance fans are a little twisted too. So we have also decided to offer R3 Beta players a special MP taunt to help you gloat in your awesomeness. This taunt is definitely NSFW, so don’t let your mom see.
Again you will have to play the Beta starting August 30th to qualify for these gifts. Just a reminder, starting today the Beta will be open to the public.
And with that we say thank you and ask you to come join us. You ARE the Resistance!
Exclusives that you can only get during alpha or beta testing, especially if tradeable items are always incredibly sought after and valuable and in some cases can be a badge of honor for putting up with a buggy and unbalanced version of the game and also getting it off the ground in the first place.
The skin is nice but a /command that involves the New York Hello is a bit on the immature side. Still, there are few taunts and gestures that get the point across better than the Hands-Free-Driving Highway Salute. Resistance 3 is now back in beta following this announcement it seems, meaning that players can now have a bash at the game and iron out all the minor problems before it’s officially released.
The official release for Resistance 3 is early in September. If you want to give your opponents the Twin Peaks then you better get yourself back onto the beta right now so you can give a really brutal taunt that you don’t want your granny to see.
