Hot on the heels of the first Resistance 3 DLC release developer Insomniac Games have announced that a new patch (1.05) and two new maps are coming gamersâ€™ way very soon. Not only that, the two new maps, which are tentatively referred to as â€˜The Creekâ€™ and â€˜The Granary,â€™ will come free of charge â€“ a very sweet deal.
For those who might not have heard about the â€˜Survival DLC Pack,â€™ it ships with a new mode called Invasion (which asks teams to spread through troops across various sections of the map to earn points), skins for Herbert, Glenda, Jean, and Charlie, and a Resistance 3 Survivor Concept Art Static XMB theme. Unlike the two maps, the â€˜Survivalâ€™ pack will set gamers back $3.99.
While Insomniac didnâ€™t share any details regarding patch 1.05 and didnâ€™t say when gamers could expect the new maps, just the announcement should get Resistance 3 fans excited. Sure, the game has experienced a few hiccups both in the single player and multiplayer departments, but none of that could take away how fantastic the game as a whole is.
Insomniac has actually been pretty mum about updates to Resistance 3 in general, keeping many of the important details to themselves. Since the last patch we can report that most issues have been non-existent, but a few glitches here and there have been reported.
What is probably most confusing about this announcement is the fact that two maps will be provided for free while a new mode and some skins will run $3.99. Since Sony has already paved the way for the Online Pass with Resistance 3, itâ€™s surprising that both sets of DLC arenâ€™t both free or both a small fee.
Still, for a chance to keep the experience of one of 2011â€™s highlights going we canâ€™t complain too much.
Have you had a chance to check out the new â€˜Survival DLC Pack?â€™ Are there any issues you are still encountering with Resistance 3 that you would like to see fixed with patch 1.05?
Resistance 3 is available now for the PS3.
