The award winning PS3 first person shooter franchise, Resistance, makes its debut on PS Vita in in which players step into the boots of an everyday hero, Fireman Tom Riley.

The game is set in August 1951: the first day of the Chimera invasion of America through New York City.

Riley battles the Chimera with his burning mission to rescue his family, but he gets caught in the middle of the invasion. He is soon pulled deeper into an interplanetary conflict.

For the first time on a handheld device, FPS fans will experience the familiar home console way to play shooters with dual analog support and can expand their gameplay online with multiplayer and location based gaming capabilities.

There’s a dynamic multiplayer mode and in that mode in Resistance, you can get infected with Chimeran virus.

This might sound like game over, but it’s actually a good thing because the Chimera virus actually gives you a multiplayer bonus experience. In fact, you can take it a step further through NEAR and infect your friends.

There are modes such as Deathmatch in which you can play with upto seven players. Or join a team and go head to head with other players online in two or four groups in deathmatch.

There are other modes such as survival modes in which your pitted against other players against the enemy, in which only the strongest will survive.
