James Stevenson has posted a short highlights video from the panel, featuring Creative Director Marcus Smith, Art Director Grant Hollis, Animation Director Kevin Grow, as well as voice actor Robin Atkin Downes (Joseph Capelli) and Crispin Freeman (Charlie Tent). The panel was moderated by IGN's Colin Moriarty (Beyond!), a self-confessed Resistance fanboy.
The panel covered a variety of topics pertaining to the Resistance universe, including discussion of the franchise's plot, design and gameplay choices. Insomniac also offered a behind-the-scenes look at the game's motion and performance capture endeavours, as well as announce a free-to-play strategy game called Global Resistance.
"Global Resistance is a free-to-play online strategy game set against mankinds final stand in the Resistance Universe," Insomniac explains, "Enlist as a Chimera or Human commander and take over the world to unlock exclusive Resistance 3 multiplayer skins, in-game titles and XP boosters. Customize your base, build and deploy your personal arsenal alongside thousands of other players, or attack on your rivals directly in head-to-head skirmishes. Will you join the Resistance or crush it?"
We just spent 15-minutes or so playing Global Resistance and it's a pretty fun idea. We doubt we'll spend much more time with the free-to-play title to be honest, but the temptation of multiplayer skins and XP boosters is hard to ignore. Maybe five more minutes?
