PlayStation 3 fans have a lot to look forward to on March 23. Not only does Sony's console finally get released in Europe and Australia on that date, but the popular PS3 shooter Resistance: Fall of Man is also set to receive some additions to its online gameplay via a new update.
The update will contain two new online modes--team conversion and assault. Team conversion is similar to the existing conversion mode, except that both teams will start off as human and have one life on each side. The objective in assault mode is to wear down opponents' defenses before destroying their base. Also added will be a new spectator camera, which lets viewers observe from any player's point of view or free-roam across a battlefield.
A further update will also be released in May featuring two new multiplayer maps. One of the maps is set in Westmorland, England, and will feature the snowy hills of northern Great Britain. The other map is set in Camborn, England, where players will be able to take part in both aboveground and subterranean combat. The May update will also introduce new global matchmaking and leaderboard options. Sony has not announced pricing for the new maps.
Resistance: Fall of Man is rated M for Mature and retails for $59.99. For more information, read GameSpot's review.
