Two major announcements have come down from Sony today concerning Resistance 2. First off, Insomniac Games’ sequel to PS3 launch title Resistance: Fall of Man has an official US launch date, and that date is November 4th. Secondly, it’ll also be released in a Collector’s Edition box set containing a number of sweet bonus goodies for $79.99. More specifically, the Collector’s Edition will include a copy of Resistance 2 sporting special edition cover art, a Chimeran Hybrid action figure with Bullseye weapon crafted by DC Unlimited, a double-sided, hard-cover art book, an exclusive in-game HVAP Wraith multiplayer weapon skin, and a bonus DVD with a behind-the-scenes video, a chronology video recapping the Resistance storyline, a sneak peek at the “Resistance: The Gathering Storm” novel, and a digital copy of Issue #0 of Wildstorm’s Resistance comic book series.

Also note that Resistance 2‘s public beta is set to begin in early October. Access to the beta test can be gained via the purchase of Qore Episode 3 or by pre-ordering the game through GameStop.
