Sony and Insomniac Games have revealed another new multiplayer map for their upcoming shooter Resistance 3, taking the sci-fi struggle to defend the Earth to the Australian outback city of Alice Springs. From PlayStation.com
Australia has always had an interesting place in the lore of Resistance, being the site of a gigantic refugee camp called Avalon One, and for years remaining a safe Haven even as Europe fell.
Unfortunately, the enormous amount of refugees strained food supplies, and Civil War erupted in 1952. Eventually, as with everywhere else on the planet, the Chimera arrived. Now the remnants of civilisation on the continent fight back in one of the most inhospitable climates to the Chimeran menace.
The Alice Springs map is an Insomniac favourite for its small town feel, with many small interiors perfect for close-quarters combat.

Resistance 3 is due exclusively on PlayStation 3 on September 8th 2011.
