After last week’s reveal of the box art for Resistance 3, the game’s release date of September 6th became a date circled on the calendar of many PlayStation 3 owners. In anticipation of this release for the PS3 exclusive Resistance series, the developer has announced a Greatest Hits Bundle packaging the first two games together.
An insert within the Battle: Los Angeles Blu-Ray – releasing June 14th, 2011 – announces that a Greatest Hits release containing both Resistance: Fall of Man and Resistance 2 will hit store shelves this summer with a MSRP of $39.99. The Blu-Ray insert also states that the bundle includes $10 worth of bonus content and an exclusive Resistance 3 skin. The Battle: Los Angeles Blu-Ray disc itself contains a demo of Resistance 3 playable on the PlayStation 3 console.
Resistance: Fall of Man released in North America on November 17th, 2006 and featured Sgt. Nathan Hale battling against a seemingly alien invasion in an alternate history of 1951. Resistance 2 continued Nathan Hale’s fight against the invading force as he headed from Britain to the United States and released on November 4th, 2008. Resistance 3‘s plot directly follows that of the first two games, taking place four years after the conclusion of the second game, so players still yet to play either game will now have a timely opportunity to play catch up and wage war on the Chimeran forces.
