In earlier Resistance-games, you could be up to 40 and 64 players on the same multiplayer map. But that's changing for Resistance 3, where the limit will be 16.
"Resistance 3 will feature 16-player Human vs. Chimera deathmatch and objective-based modes set in locations across the globe. That may seem somewhat jarring after the 40 and 60-player mayhem in RFOM and R2. Rest-assured though, our biggest motivation in determining our new player-count was the fun times that we and the community had on maps like RFOM's Busyard and Rooftops, as well as the Bayou House and San Francisco maps in R2," the European Playstation blog writes.
There will of course be a couple of new features for multiplayer in the third game. ""Furthermore, each player can select and level a personal attribute and a combat attribute. These range from the ability to have leapers bust out from your corpse, to start with more weapons in your arsenal, to reloading or firing at a faster rate."
Insomniac took the time to announce that they will be bringing out a multiplayer beta for the game later this year.
