Resistance 3 is a first-person shooter video game for Sony PlayStation 3 (PS3), set for release on September 6, 2011. It is the fourth title in the Resistance series and is the sequel to the best-selling PS 3 title Resistance: Fall of Man and its first sequel, Resistance 2. The game is developed by Insomniac Games and published by Sony Computer Entertainment.

Resistance 3 will not follow the main protagonist of the previous two games, Nathan Hale, since he was executed by Joseph Capelli in Resistance 2, instead it will follow the story of Joseph Capelli who was introduced in the previous installment, Resistance 2. The game takes place in 1957, 4 years after the events of Resistance 2, where Capelli has since started a family with Nathan's stepsister Susan. The chimera have since taken control over the planet, while the surviving humans have turned to cannibalism due to a lack of food. Capelli travels throughout the remnants of the United States through cities like New York City and St. Louis, Missouri where he meets old comrades such as Malikov.

Resistance 3 will retain mostly the same gameplay mechanics as it predecessor albeit with several changes. The weapon wheel from the first Resistance game will be returning after it was excluded from Resistance 2. There will also be new environmental objects such as chimeran plants which explode when shot at. The game will see a mixture of new and old weapons; returning weapons include the Bullseye, Magnum, Shotgun, Auger and Carbine, while one of the new weapons is the Mutator which shoots biological mists causing enemies to eventually explode causing splash damage, as well as a new grenade which is shaped like a food can which releases an arsenal of nails when it explodes. All weapons are upgradeable, and become more powerful the more they are used. In line with the survival theme of Resistance 3, humans are forced to assemble their weapons from whatever scrap they can gather. Frag grenades, for example, are constructed from bean cans with nails attached to them.
