Survival is a multiplayer mode only featured in Resistance: Burning Skies. Survival starts off with two Chimeran players attempting to infect a team of four human players. If a human gets killed by the Chimera they will turn into Chimera and fight on the Chimeran team trying to infect the other remaining humans. Eventually the human who survives the longest in a match wins. This game mode is similar to Assimilation from Resistance: Retribution.
In the bottom left corner of your screen you can view how many human players are still alive and how many Chimeran players there are. The green skulls represent the Human players that are still alive and the white skulls with a red cross represent the Chimeran players.
