INCOMING! New shots from Insomniac's PS3 exclusive, Resistance 3 have escaped Sony HQ and are invading your interwebs. The leaked seventeen strong mix of concept art and potential gameplay screens show a familiar yet grittier Chimera threat than ever before.
Above: The Chimera look less cartoon-like than ever before. Nasty.
So what have we noticed from the shots? Well the whole look of the game appears to be far more grimy than before. We're still hopeful of a rainbow and blue sky or two, because who want's to kill aliens for hours on end in the rain? Not us. Also, it may just be part of the concept for Resistance 3 but will we see children screaming through the streets as we go gun to gun with the Chimera? Maybe even wielding a pistol...
Above: Look closely in the bottom left hand corner. Near the man with the shotty. A kid with a revolver?
The images seem to confirm that the lead character will indeed be Joseph Capelli (seeing as the original file names contained the 'Capelli_Grim' and the like) - the former team-mate of Nathan Hale who is seen *SPOILER ALERT* blasting his old buddy in the head just as he's about to fully transform into a mega-Chimera *SPOILER ENDS*. Internet rumour also suggests that Hale's sister, Susan Farley, is the lady seen in the shots too. Oh, and Capelli is a native of New York, which would maybe mean the final showdown will be there. Need proof? BOOM!
Above: The Statue of Liberty looks to have taken a whoopin'. And what's that light coming from Manhattan?
We've actually seen the game running but we're sworn to secrecy. What we can say is that Resistance 3 looks to be far more claustrophobic than what we've seen, with twisting streets hiding Chimera around every turn. New weapons look ace and there are a few new tricks up the alien-invaders scaly sleeves to really keep you on your toes. And that's about all we can say. Sorry. We'll have loads more news as soon as the embargo lifts, but for now check out the rest of the screenshots to get yourself in the mood for some alien-slaying.
