Resistance 3 is set to take place during a dark time for humanity. The Chimera have almost purged the planet of Humans and so, the game will take a different approach to the previous two.
At least, this is according to the game's creative director Marcus Smith. "We're moving away from the military side of things," he said. "Humanity has had to change tactics. This is a game about survival."
It'll certainly be interesting to see how things play out, especially as the game will now have a new protagonist, Joseph Capelli. It's set for release on the 6th of September, 2011, so we'll find out for ourselves then.
