Here’s a first look at the Official Debut Trailer for Capcom and Spark Unlimited’s upcoming third person shooter, Lost Planet 3, which is actually a prequel to the events in the first two games. The ice cold, extreme conditions return, along with the promise that it is going to reveal new truths about the foreboding planet and the colonial history of E.D.N. III.
Lost Planet 3 introduces a new character to the series called Jim, a rig pilot who leaves Earth to take on a on a dangerous contract on E.D.N. III. He works for NEVEC, who are a company preparing the planet for colonization, which leads him to begin searching the planets terrain, in search of the planet’s energy supply – Thermal Energy.
Lost Planet 3 will bring a variety of new gameplay mechanics including on-foot battles and adrenaline fuelled first person action. Multiplayer returns in Lost Planet 3, likely including co-op, which will hopefully add to the overall experience of the game.
With a movie in development and a new game on the horizon, things are looking very good for the franchise. Capcom is keeping a lot of details to themselves, but there is plenty of time to show this Xbox, PS3, and PC game off before the end of the year.
