New ‘Resistance: Fall of Man’ Content On The Way

Sony Computer Entertainment has announced a number of updates are currently in development for ‘Resistance: Fall of Man.’ The first update will offer two new online modes: Team Conversion, described as “…the same gameplay mechanic as the existing Conversion mode except that gamers will play a team and both teams will start off as human and have one life on each side,” and Team Assault, described as “… based around the concept of attrition where the objective is to wear down an opponent’s defenses before destroying their base.” Also included in the update is a new spectator camera that allows for locking on a specfic player or free-roaming the battlefield, quicker and more reliable matchmaking, and the return of the old radar as a customizable option. This entire update will be available on March 23, the same date Playstation 3 launches in Europe.

In May, Insomiac Games is expected to polish off a pair of new multiplayer maps and make them available for download. The first map is set in Westmorland, England where players will duke it out on snowy hills. The second map is set in Camborn, England where combat will be split between above and below-ground locations.

Lastly, the May update will allow players to globally challenge each other and bridge the Playstation 3 gap between global regions. Leaderboards will be available at with filtering and matchmaking options available by region.
