Resistance: Burning Skies Survival mode, pre-order treats revealed

Sony gets chatty about the upcoming Vita FPS

As promised, Sony has revealed details for Resistance: Burning Skies' multiplayer survival mode, along with info on some pre-order bonuses.


Talking about the new multiplayer mode, Sony explains: "Survival mode pits the players against each other in a race to the finish where only the strong survive.

"In a battle of humans vs. Chimera, six players start as humans and two as Chimera. As the Chimera players make kills, their human victims are resurrected as Chimera so the balance slowly shifts. As the battle continues, the winner is the human player who lasts the longest in a match. We keep a timer running as you play so you can track your progress."

The publisher has also detailed some bonuses for those who slap their names down for a pre-order. To "give you a pretty nice advantage" in multiplayer, your pre-order will earn you the right to skip to level five in MP rank, unlocking the Hedgehog grenade and first weapon upgrade early.

You'll also get three character avatars based on Burning Skies' lead characters Riley, Ellie and a Chimera, along with a custom PS Vita lock screen theme.

These goodies will only be available at "participating retailers", which are yet to be named.
