Though Resistance 3 launches only today in North America, the downloadable content train is already in motion for Insomniac's PlayStation 3-exclusive shooter. Publisher Sony announced today that a new capture-and-hold multiplayer mode will arrive next month in a $4 DLC pack, along with two free maps for everyone.

The 'Survival' DLC pack adds 'Invasion' mode, which Sony says "challenges humans and Chimera to capture and hold multiple control points for as long as possible." Arriving October 4, it'll also include a new multiplayer skin pack and static XMB theme.

"The mode was developed after the final game was completed and on a separate budget to be exclusively DLC," Insomniac said on Twitter, responding to a fan's complaint that it should've been included with the full game.

A free patch with two new maps for everyone will also arrive on October 4, Sony revealed on the PlayStation Blog.

      I really hope I don't buy this game. Shame about Space Marine and Dead Island though...might have nothing else to do

      Why do devs us the launch day of their game to announce new DLC. You'd think they'd wait a bit longer so they could keep the game in the headlines longer.

        they want to monetize it as soon as possible. that's why they hold back content from the release. so the full game is REALLY $70.

      This is so pointless. The playlist will be completely dead in less than a month. Same thing happened with Medal of Honor.

      Looking forward to the new maps though.
