Resistance: Burning Skies is a first-person shooter game for the PlayStation Vita developed by Nihilistic Software and published by Sony Computer Entertainment in June 2012. It is the fifth installment in the Resistance franchise. It was formally announced on August 17, 2011 at GamesCom.
In August 14th, 1951, one month after the liberation of the United Kingdom, the Chimera attacked the east coast of the United States. New York fireman Tom Riley is caught in the middle of the conflict. In spite of the fact that he fights against the Chimera, he only has a desire to find and rescue his family caught in the middle of the invasion.
The story begins where Tom Riley along with Engine 174 are driving through the Staten Island and arrives in a power station that is caught on fire. They enter the station and Tom is separated from his fellow firemen after accidentally falling into the lower levels of the station through a broken floor. As Tom works his way back up, he sees one of the firemen being attacked and killed by Longlegs. Tom is forced to fight his way out of the station and rescuing only one fireman.
Once outside, Tom came to witness that the Chimeran invasion is in full swing. Riley makes his way through the city and eventually meeting up with a woman named Ellie Martinez, who is the leader of the self-titled Minutemen, and her squad. They make their way to a highway bridge where Tom reunites with his family. They are about to leave together but only to separate as more Chimera show up, as Riley is forced to stay behind with Ellie to buy the survivors some time. Along the way, Tom and Ellie come across a mysterious shipment in a military truck called Gray Tech, which demonstrates the capabilities of upgrading their weapons. They are again attacked by Chimeran ground forces but Tom and Ellie defeat them. Before they could leave the highway, an Executioner attacks them. Tom and Ellie able to destroy the Executioner before they escape from bombardment of Spires and Crawlers.
Then, they make their way to a military base in Bayonne of New Jersey, where Ellie introduce Tom to her ally Colonel George Amherst, who help in locating Tom's family to a Protection Camp in Union City. Following immediately after the base fell under attack by the Chimera. Riley assist in fending off the attack, which includes in killing a gargantuan Chimeran creature called the Abomination.
Tom and Ellie continue to Staten Island and pass the George Washington bridge. Ellie calls an Air strike when they see Chimeran reinforcements. Tom goes down the rope of the VTOL he and Ellie are riding to rescue the crew of another VTOL that crashed on the bridge but fell. Amazingly he survived the 30 foot fall when the Aerial strike struck the bridge. 2 times he had to hide in a Chimeran armored vehicle to survive the Aerial strikes. Going through another Air vent (by the way its under the bridge) hes attacked by little scorpion like chimeran creatures but he easily defeated them. Making it to the VTOL crash, he pried the door open and saved the last soldier in there. Carrying him outside, he put it on the case that came down. Ellie was also there and said, "Next time why down't we have a little chat before you decide to jump from the moving Aircraft?!" "Whats there to talk about? I'm here, you're here, I'd say we're in pretty good agreement." Tom replied.

This will allow for console-quality control while on the go. The game feature touch controls to handle the secondary functions of most weapons. For example, the M5A2 Folsom Carbine's grenade launcher or the Bullseye's tagging feature. The game makes no use of the Vita's motion sensor.
Burning Skies has a 8-player online multiplayer across six unique maps and three modes, which includes Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, and a third called "Survival"; the latter being somewhat similar to Resistance: Retribution's Infected mode.

- Burning Skies is the first game in the series to have the protagonist not as a soldier.
- The game disables the PS Vita's built-in screenshot function.
- Burning Skies seems to recycle a large amount of material from Resistance 3, including some weapons and ideas only previously encountered in that game such as the late-war Auger scope, Bullseye, and enemies such as Longlegs.
- It is the first game in the entire series to feature a Spire attack during actual gameplay, though it is not clear where it originates from.
- In keeping with the Resistance: Retribution tradition of PSP games having characters use nicknames for the Chimera, in Burning Skies characters refer to the creatures as "stinks," a term also used in the Metastasis comic and in the books, Resistance: The Gathering Storm and Resistance: A Hole in the Sky. This includes Henry Stillman, who never used this term during Resistance 2.
- The level and C.F.G. shown in the Gamescom demo were cut from the game.
- It's a prequel to Resistance 2.
