from Lost Planet 3
, the third entry in the futuristic third-person shooter series scheduled to be available early 2013, for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
Attendees at E3 will be amongst the first in the world to experience Lost Planet 3, with the extreme and unpredictable conditions that characterize the Lost Planet series returning, harsher than ever before. The game centers on Jim Peyton, a Utility Rig pilot who has taken on a hazardous but lucrative contract with Neo-Venus Construction (NEVEC) on the planet of E.D.N. III. The rig acts as Jim's home away from home as well as offering him protection from the ever changing climate. Players will soon discover though that the rig's array of tools are just as useful at taking out the indigenous Akrid as they are fulfilling his contract work. Outside the rig the gameplay switches to on-foot battles with Jim at the mercy of the elements, combining gun and melee based combat to survive all that E.D.N. III can throw at him. The E3 demo sees players experience action both in and outside the rig as Jim sets about locating another pocket of the planet’s thermal energy. Cross vast snowy plains before heading on foot into a deserted base and then returning to the rig for a final showdown.
