Sony’s lifted the lid on the final multiplayer mode of Resistance: Burning Skies after unveiling Death Match and Team Death Match last week, it’s the game’s survival mode, and by the look of things, it’s pretty awesome. Details inside.
Resistance: Burning Skies survival mode “pits the players against each other in a race to the finish where only the strong survive,” Frank Simon, Sr.Producer, SCEA said on the US PS Blog. “Here’s how it works: in a battle of humans vs. Chimera, six players start as humans and two as Chimera. As the Chimera players make a kils, their human victims are resurrected as Chimera so the balance slowly shifts. As the battle continues, the winner is the human player who lasts the longest in a match. We keep a timer running as you play so you can track your progress,” he explained.
“We’ve been having a lot of fun developing and testing this mode, and we’ve collected a few tips and tricks along the way that might help you survive a little longer. The first thing, and actually contrary to traditional MP gameplay, is that staying still actually works to your advantage. You might want to try and get behind players so as they start searching an area, you can actually hop back against their search pattern. Dark areas are your friend! We’ve also found that you don’t want to hide next to areas like steam vents because, although obscuring, the motion tends to attract attention. Here’s another tip; always go for the head. The ability to quickly neutralize your opponent and then move on is a huge advantage. This may be hide-and -seek, but your prey is armed! Don’t hang around after you’ve killed someone, bodies are pretty obvious signs that someone is nearby,” he added.
I must admit it’s looking really good thus far.
