Remember when a billboard on the set of Battle: Los Angeles spilled the beans about Resistance 3 long before it was officially announced?

Just over a week after its Community Day reveal of new Resistance 3 gameplay, Insomniac was back at it again, this time showing off a new single-player level and a new multiplayer map in Hollywood.
