Lost Planet 3 out in North America
PC retail version coming late next month in Europe
Capcom today confirmed that Lost Planet 3 will release across North America today and in Europe on August 30 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and as a digital download for PC. A retail version for Windows PC will be available across Europe on September 27.
The extreme and unpredictable conditions that characterized the Lost Planet series return to E.D.N. III. 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 planet's 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.
Lost Planet 3 delivers a mix of action both inside and outside of the Utility Rig. Acting as a home away from home and offering protection from the ever changing climate, Jim soon discovers the Utility Rig's 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.
