New Lost Planet 3 Details Unleashed


President Obama should declare today Capcom day as the firm’s on a never-ending info-release spree, shedding great light on some of the massive titles it has under development. Below the break you’ll know much more about Lost Planet 3.

The game introduces Jim, a rig pilot who leaves Earth to take on a hazardous but lucrative contract on E.D.N. III. Working for Neo-Venus Construction (NEVEC) who are preparing the planet for colonization, Jim joins his fellow pioneers at the Coronis base and begins surveying the uncharted terrain and obtaining samples of the planet’s energy supply – Thermal Energy.

With NEVEC’s existing Thermal Energy reserve running low the fate of the Coronis mission depends on the natural source of the energy supply being located. Realizing that this is a great opportunity for a huge pay-off and early ticket home to his family, Jim braves the risk of the treacherous environment and threat of the indigenous Akrid. Acting as a home away from home and boasting an array of tools that can assist Jim on the field, the utility rig provides Jim’s safety and is essential for not only his contract work but also his protection against the ever-changing climate.

    but why do different things with series that are not suppose to be?
    its just stupid why not keep the dam series how there suppose to be that way they wont of alienated all their fans!
    i dont get it, they say RE cant stay survival horror because theres no market for it.
    then they go and release LP3 as a survival horror game!
    ah i give up, if crapcom are good at one thing its contradicting themselves!
    almost as good as $ony!
