Each will feature different objectives based on whether the player is controlling the defensive-minded F.N.U. or the attack-prone Phantom League. The mega campaigns will also include world war and assault missions.

Phantom Resistance will be compatible with Massive Assault Network for online play and will include its own tutorial mode for newcomers to the Massive Assault series. We'll provide more details on the release date when they become available.
