Insomniac Gives Middle Finger to Resistance 3 Beta Players… In a Nice Way

August 30, 2011 Written by Sebastian Moss

If you’ve put hours into the Resistance 3 beta, you might feel like you should get something in return – other than the satisfaction of knowing that you’ve helped make a game bug free. Luckily, Insomniac Games concurs, and will be giving beta players something special as a thank you.

We’ve received an email from Insomniac that shows that they will give beta players two gifts for taking part in the beta, but you will have to go online again:

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!
