Resistance update finally bursts out of the trenches this week

After a seemingly endless amount of delays, the much anticipated Resistance: Fall of Man update will be hitting our PS3s this Friday. In preparation for this, Insomniac will be taking down the online servers starting at 2:30 A.M. UK time while they work on integrating the servers for international online play. That night the servers should be back online and people will be able to connect to them to download the update. Coming in alongside the update is the Resistance Map Pack, with two new multiplayer maps available for purchase.

At this point, it's not confirmed that the Resistance update will be available worldwide this Friday, or if it's going to be rolled out first to the UK and then here and Japan. We'll update this post as soon as we know more.
