Capcom’s Lost Planet 3 has launched in North America and will be available in Europe on August 30th this week. A new launch trailer has been made available as shown below to tease what’s on offer as the series returns to E.D.N. III.
The extreme and unpredictable conditions that characterised the Lost Planet series returns to E.D.N. III. and introduces Jim Peyton, a Utility Rig pilot who leaves Earth to take on a hazardous but lucrative contract working for Neo-Venus Construction (NEVEC), obtaining samples of the planet’s natural energy source – Thermal Energy, which NEVEC believes will save Earth’s energy crisis. With this latest addition to one of Capcom’s major franchises, new truths about the foreboding planet and the colonial history will be revealed.
Lost Planet 3 delivers a mix of action both inside and outside of the Utility Rig. Acting as a home away from home and offering protection from the ever changing climate, Jim soon discovers the Utility Rig’s array of tools are just as useful at taking out Akrid of all sizes as they are at helping him fulfil his contract work. Outside the rig, the action switches to third person with Jim at the mercy of the planet’s elements. He’ll need to battle against hostile enemies with a mix of gun and melee based combat to survive all that is thrown at him.
The title also supports a full set of multiplayer modes that enhances players’ experience of the Lost Planet world and sees them taking on the role of either the NEVEC forces or the Snow Pirates in up to ten player battles.
An official soundtrack for the title featuring all of the in-game music that Jim can listen to in his Utility Rig is also available to purchase digitally on iTunes and Amazon across North America and Europe beginning today.
