ABOUT LOST PLANET 3
Lost Planet 3 delivers a mix of action both inside and outside of Jim’s Utility Rig vehicle. 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 as they are at helping him fulfill his contract work. Outside the rig, the action switches to third person with Jim at the mercy of the elements. He’ll need to battle against hostile enemies with a mix of gun and melee based combat in order to survive all that is thrown at him.
In addition to the single player campaign, Lost Planet 3 features four online multiplayer modes. Players select either the NEVEC forces or the Snow Pirates in a series of team-based battles that not only see them take on the opposing team, but also compete against the extreme conditions of E.D.N. III and hordes of Akrid.
Lost Planet 3 is scheduled to release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC on August 27th in North America and on August 30th across Europe.
