Resistance 3 ‘Survival’ DLC coming October 3

Resistance 3 hits PlayStation 3 today, and Sony’s already on top of announcing the first DLC for Insomniac’s first-person shooter.

The “Survival” pack will be hitting the PlayStation Store on October 4, and will be bringing a new mode, “Invasion,” to the game’s multiplayer. This new game type is all about humans and Chimera battling it out to control various points on maps. The pack, which will cost $3.99, also comes with new multiplayer skins as well as an XMB theme.

Wondering where our Resistance 3 review is? Blame me if you’d like — the online pass required to test the game’s multiplayer modes hadn’t been activated while I was reviewing the game. Sony did provide a way for us to test the modes in multiplayer sessions on our non-retail PS3 units, but I’ve opted to wait so I can play with the public. I’ve completed the single-player campaign (it’s excellent, although short), but will be waiting to spend some time with the multiplayer before I give my final verdict.
