The Resistance is a cooperative mode that will find players fighting against opponents that have seemingly teamed up to take down the players. Resistance takes place in the new area called West Side Pier, where players must find out why the opposing teams are "forging an alliance" and have "sudden interest in this location." Players should expect the new Resistance mode to be teeming with NPCs that come in waves, as players and three of their teammates try their best to defeat them all to earn rewards. Meanwhile, the Skirmish is a new PvP mode in which two teams with four players each will compete against each other to gain the most number of kills before the time runs out. This will also take place in the new area called West Side Pier, which according to Gamespot is "a new area that expands on the existing map."
