Sony have revealed the new multiplayer survival mode for their upcoming PS Vita shooting game, Resistance: Burning Skies.
The mode is detailed via the PlayStation Blog and is the third multiplayer offering to go alongside Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch. Players will be put into either humans or Chimera who will start with six and two squad members. Once a human is killed they will be transformed into a Chimea which will slowly balance the play. The winner will be the last human that is left standing.
Product manager Phil Lynch stated:
“We really wanted to offer something that was unique to Resistance, keeping with the franchise’s theme around humanity’s struggle to survive against overwhelming odds, We wanted the game to start relatively simple for the humans and then become increasingly harder over time, much like the way the Chimera invaded Asia, then Europe and then America in a flood. Previous Resistance games have had modes similar to this, but Survival is our own special twist to create a new mode that focuses on the balance of power changes.”
Players who pre-order the game will get an automatic start in multiplayer at level 5. They will also get three extra character avatars and a Vita lock screen theme. Let us know your thoughts on Survival mode via the comment section below.
Resistance: Burning Skies will be released on the PlayStation Vita on May 29th in North America and May 30th in Europe
