Lost Planet 3 launch trailer brings trouble to paradise

A Lost Planet 3 cinematic launch trailer tells the story of a civilian miner caught up in matters considerably over his head. Jim Peyton is a colonist working as a miner on the frozen planet of E.D.N. III for the Neo-Venus Construction company, or NEVEC. He has his own little slice of paradise sheltered from the elements outside, and dreams of being able to return home to his family. Unfortunately for Jim, things don't quite go as planned. An accident strands him far from where he should be, and he ends up caught in the middle of a struggle that, as a prequel, will show how NEVEC came to rule E.D.N. III as shown in the first game. Lost Planet 3 is out today for Windows PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in North America, and launches on Aug. 30 in Europe.

Lost Planet 3 trailer graphically describes your death by freezing

The ice planet of E.D.N. 3 has an average temperature of -120 degrees Centigrade, and a new Lost Planet 3 trailer describes exactly what happens to the human body at those temperatures. Freezing to death starts as your body pulls back blood from the extremities to keep vital organs warm, causing ice crystals to form under the skin of your fingers and toes. From there, the descriptions only get worse. For those curious about how their survival skills in extreme conditions measure up, Capcom has released a tie-in minigame testing one's ability to survive. Lost Planet 3 hits Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC at the end of August.

Lost Planet 3 trailer discusses what it means to survive

A new trailer for Capcom's upcoming Lost Planet 3 features protagonist Jim Peyton talking about survival, life and death. On the frigid planet of E.D.N. III, survival is a battle to shelter the little flame of life from death haunting your every move, says Peyton. But survival, he thinks, is not merely staying alive but enduring harsh conditions and "shutting out the loneliness and fear." Lost Planet 3 hits PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC on August 27.

Lost Planet 3 multiplayer pits humans against Akrid and each other

Lost Planet 3 features a suite of four multiplayer modes that are separate from the solo story campaign, and Capcom revealed two of them, Scenario and Akrid Survival, today in a Capcom-Unity video interview with producer Andrew Szymanski. In general, Lost Planet 3's multiplayer concerns two opposing factions, the Snow Pirates and the Neo Venus Construction Company (NEVEC). The Scenario mode is an objective-based affair, with different goals for both sides on each of the game's six maps. In the video above, Capcom showed off Scenario on the Stronghold map. NEVEC players are the attackers with the objective of protecting their Battlecat, a massive machine that's drilling into the Snow Pirates' base; the Snow Pirates must fend them off and try to disable the Battlecat. Other maps will let...

What Lost Planet 3 takes and leaves from its predecessors

Capcom's Lost Planet 3 will have some resemblance to Lost Planet: Extreme Condition in the way it focuses on the game's story and characters, but the third installment in the series will also embrace many changes, according to Capcom Japan producer Andrew Szymanski. Speaking to Polygon, Szymanski said Lost Planet 3 is less of an arcade-style game compared to the original Lost Planet and allows players to explore their environment, instead of pushing them to complete levels. "When [Kenji] Oguro-san penned the first game, he wanted to keep players moving forward, and it was much more of an arcade-style game where you'd play the first level, beat the boss, play the second level, beat the boss," Szymanski said. "He wanted to keep people rushing forward, and that's why you had this ticking...
