Forthcoming PlayStation 3 shooter Resistance 3 will feature split-screen multiplayer, developer Insomniac Games has confirmed.

Creative director Marcus Smith told the PlayStation Blog, "In terms of co-op, we are focusing on a two-player co-op through the single-player campaign, which can be played online with a friend, or split-screen on your couch."

Smith also revealed a few more morsels about the game, ahead of the full reveal expected at the Spike VGA event this weekend.

"New to Resistance 3 are upgradeable weapons, which will give your weapons new abilities and power as you continue to use them.

"In terms of multiplayer," he added, "we are planning a much more focused, progression-based multiplayer experience."

He also revealed a set of concept art for the threequel, which follows hero Joseph Capelli as he fights his way across America in an attempt to deal a knock-out blow to the Chimera. Take a look at the gallery below.

Resistance 3 is due for an Autumn 2011 release on PlayStation 3.
