Resistance 3 Info Overload: Release Date, Pre-Order Bonuses And Special Editions

Written by on    

Playstation Blog has just dropped enough new information on Resistance 3 to make a Chimera do a back flip. Let’s start with the release date. The game will release first in the US on the 6th of September this year, then the 9th in the UK and Europe. It seems we have a lot to look forward to later this year. Those who wish to pre-order Resistance 3 will have the following bonuses to look forward to.


SRPA Black Ops skin

Once a common sight in the war against the Chimera, this special SRPA Black Ops multiplayer skin lets you return to the battlefield as one of the most mysterious and deadly soldiers from Resistance 2 and Resistance: Fall of Man.

Infected Nathan Hale skin

By skipping his viral inhibitor treatment throughout Resistance 2, Nathan Hale fell victim to the deadly Chimera virus. Now you can resurrect the fallen hero with this special multiplayer character skin.

Air Fuel grenade

Equip Joseph Capelli with an explosive advantage as he embarks on his journey across America. This exclusive grenade releases a cloud of highly flammable vapour, creating a huge blast when ignited – perfect for taking out hordes of Chimera in tight urban spaces.

Chimera tooth necklace

Show your support for the resistance by wearing Joseph Capelli’s Chimera tooth necklace.

More Bonuses

Special multiplayer title: “Sentinel”

Pledge your allegiance to the elite unit of the SRPA – the Sentinels – with this multiplayer title, exclusive to pre-order customers.

Multiplayer booster

Get an early advantage on the multiplayer battlefield by starting the fight at level 5 – and gain access to a range of character and weapon customisation options.

Remember availability for all bonuses will vary depending on your retailer. Now check out the Special Editions. There are two additional versions you can buy as well as the regular retail edition. Check them out below.


Next up we have the Resistance 3 Special Edition. This version of the game comes in a stunning steelbook case – packed with a voucher code for all of the pre-order items listed above.

Not only will this look awesome on your shelf, (the array of logos are on a perspex o-ring which you can remove) but this version will also come complete with a very cool ‘vinyl effect’ blu-ray disc (complete with the ribbed vinyl effect on the surface).


Now last, but by no means least, we have the Resistance 3 Survivor Edition! This uber-bundle comes complete with the following content (as well as the Special Edition pack listed above):

Canvas satchel
