The extreme and unpredictable conditions that characterised the Lost Planet series return, harsher than ever before
Releasing a new video, Capcom announced that Lost Planet 3, the third entry in the futuristic third-person shooter series, has arrived today for Xbox 360 and PS3 in North America and Europe. The PC version is also available in North America and will launch in Europe on August 30th.
Lost Planet 3 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 planetţs 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.
Acting as a home away from home and offering protection from the ever changing climate, Jim soon discovers the Utility Rigţs 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.
