As for game features, this looks to be the biggest online game yet seen on a console. There are two separate story modes, one intended for single player and one that will support two-player co-op offline or eight player co-op online. On top of this the online competitive mode will support sixty players per server. Warhawk, eat your heart out. There will be new vehicles, semi-randomly generated levels and a class system for online play.
Wait, did we say two story modes? One co-op and one single player? Does that not sound awesome? Yes, it does - because, from what we can see, Resistance 2 will be made of Awesome.
[UPDATE] The game is aiming for an Autumn 2008 release. Any expectations regarding an early 2009 release are solely down to the cynicism of the article's author.
