Resistance 3 Release Date, Pre-Order Bonuses & Special Editions Revealed
So, hot on the heels of our packshot unveil last week (included below for those of you that may have missed it) – we wanted to give you a peek at the Resistance 3 pre-order bonuses available across PAL – as well as a first look at our Special Edition and Survivor Edition game bundles!
However, before we go into the details, I wanted to give you a release date!
I’m very pleased to confirm that Resistance 3 will be launching across PAL on the following dates:
- UK & Ireland: 9th September
- Rest of PAL: 7th September
(now you know when you need to book off work!)
So with that, we move onto the pre-order bonus items. Please note for all of the below content, availability will vary depending on your locale and retailer.
SRPA Black Ops skin
Once a common sight in the war against the Chimera, this special SRPA Black Ops multiplayer skin lets you return to the battlefield as one of the most mysterious and deadly soldiers from Resistance 2 and Resistance: Fall of Man.
Infected Nathan Hale skin
By skipping his viral inhibitor treatment throughout Resistance 2, Nathan Hale fell victim to the deadly Chimera virus. Now you can resurrect the fallen hero with this special multiplayer character skin.
Air Fuel grenade
Equip Joseph Capelli with an explosive advantage as he embarks on his journey across America. This exclusive grenade releases a cloud of highly flammable vapour, creating a huge blast when ignited – perfect for taking out hordes of Chimera in tight urban spaces.
Special multiplayer title: “Sentinel”
Pledge your allegiance to the elite unit of the SRPA – the Sentinels – with this multiplayer title, exclusive to pre-order customers.
Get an early advantage on the multiplayer battlefield by starting the fight at level 5 – and gain access to a range of character and weapon customisation options.
Chimera tooth necklace
Show your support for the resistance by wearing Joseph Capelli’s Chimera tooth necklace.
RESISTANCE 3 SPECIAL EDITION
Next up we have the Resistance 3 Special Edition. This version of the game comes in a stunning steelbook case – packed with a voucher code for all of the pre-order items listed above.
Not only will this look awesome on your shelf, (the array of logos are on a perspex o-ring which you can remove) but this version will also come complete with a very cool ‘vinyl effect’ blu-ray disc (complete with the ribbed vinyl effect on the surface).
RESISTANCE 3 SURVIVOR EDITION
Now last, but by no means least, we have the Resistance 3 Survivor Edition! This uber-bundle comes complete with the following content (as well as the Special Edition pack listed above):
Capelli’s rugged and reliable satchel, ideal for long journeys across the ravaged American landscape.
Chimera firing range target
Know your enemy; perfect your aim or take out your frustrations on this life-size Chimera target poster.
“Fight for Freedom” toy soldiers
Play out the battle on a small scale with these toy soldiers depicting Joseph Capelli and Chimera fighters.
Joseph Capelli’s Journal
Read Capelli’s notes on the journey ahead of him, the enemies he’ll face and the weapons he’ll use – and start writing your own story as you fight the Chimera.
SRPA hip flask
Keep the cold at bay or give yourself the courage to fight on with this standard issue SRPA soldier’s hip flask.
SRPA playing cards
Pass the time between battles with this deck of SRPA soldier’s playing cards.
Here’s a visual for you to check out.
We’ll update with new images of the Survivor Edition (and its content) in due course – my personal favorite are the scarily cute Chimera toy soldiers – in the mean time though, hit me up in the comments below if you have any questions.
Resistance 3 will be coming exclusively to PS3 on 7th/9th September.
