Lost Planet 3 announced

Capcom announced during its Captivate event Lost Planet 3 set to release early in 2013. Developed by Spark Unlimited, the game will introduce Jim Peyton, a rig pilot who take on a contract on E.D.N. III. Besides the single player campaign, the title will feature various multiplayer modes with on-foot battles and first person action for all.


Game Description:
The latest chapter in the Lost Planet™ series comes to Xbox 360, PlayStation®3 and Windows PC in early 2013. The extreme and unpredictable conditions that characterised the Lost Planet series return, harsher than ever before. Lost Planet™ 3 reveals new truths about the foreboding planet and the colonial history of E.D.N. III.

Lost Planet 3 introduces Jim Peyton, 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 colonisation, 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. Realising 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 not only for his contract work but also his protection against the ever-changing climate.

Lost Planet 3 will deliver a diverse range of gameplay including on-foot battles and intense first person action. With a number of multiplayer modes and a compelling single player experience, Lost Planet 3 will delve deeper into the Lost Planet universe, uncovering hidden truths within the unique and dynamic environment of E.D.N. III.

Features:
Return to extreme conditions – Taking the series back to its roots Lost Planet 3 returns to E.D.N. III, delivering a dynamic battle field that’s more dangerous than ever before with an ever changing climate that will affect the way you play.
Brave the terrifying – Play as blue collar worker Jim, risking assignments in treacherous conditions to earn his hazard pay and return home to his family.
Home away from home – Protect yourself from hostile Akrid and the unpredictable ice storms on E.D.N. III with your utility rig. Equipped with an assortment of tools you’ll need to learn to use the rig to your advantage in order to survive.
Gameplay Variety – Offering a mix of first person combat in the rig and third person gunplay on foot.
Intense, cinematic experience – Developed with the Unreal Engine 3, Lost Planet 3 presents a visually stunning and unique terrain that impacts the gameplay.
Killer enemies – The Akrid are back, bigger and angrier and demanding a more tactical approach during combat.
Reveal the hidden truths of E.D.N. III – The uncharted world has many secrets locked away. Jim’s search for T-Energy will ultimately reveal further mysteries.
Lonely Planet? – Lost Planet 3 will support a full set of multiplayer modes that enhance players experience of the Lost Planet world.

I like this artdirection more than LP2, and I am glad they are going back to the snowy and cold atmosphere as the first one.

But the developers behind this gives me no hope for it, I do hope it surprises us to be solid fun atleast, you never know.

Expectations extremely low for now.

Spark haven't made any good game so far, so can't really see any logical explanation to let them make it. Legendary and Turning Point both sucked really bad...

The trailer was cool, did not like the 2nd version (Xbox), but I like the possibilities, so I will keep my eye on this.
Not really interested in the mulitplayer, but I wasn't interested in ME3's multiplayer either until I played it.

They gave this one to a western dev too huh?

this is some of the worst "big budget" devs out there. Jesus Capcom, are you so desperate?

Isn't that obvious?

The first 2 where really really shit. Combined with a dev who consistently brings out shit, i have no hope for this at all.

going by the shaders and lack of jaggies but some diethering artifacts in the borders (i've seen some photoshops in my day) this is indeed a implementation of MTFramework. Is this the first time Capcom lets a gaijin dev use it?

pretty unique looking then and a good effort, if a gaijin dev uses a gaijin engine and it looks pretty similar. In bullshots, if only.

LP2 was great. Many cool new ideas like submarine-VS, awesome an epic bossfights, non stop action, good weapons sounds, more co-op aspects like the Stormbringer VS (the huge railway canon in Episode 3), interesting locations, lots of unlockables and so on.

The awful netcode for versus matches and no party options ruined the game....

And LP3 now sounds like a totally different game. Open world? "Quests"? Only one VS? First person view in the VS (what's the point of this. I wanna see my VS in action from third person view).

Prequel or not. Why having a "3" in the title then.

    droezelke @Moonwalker: I agree. Other than the Metal Gear series, he didn't really present something as good. And I thought MGS5 was ultra boring (58 minutes ago)

    Moonwalker Personally i find Kojima rather overrated. Yes MGS and MGS3 were fantastic, 2 wasn't nearly as good, same for 4 and 5....nah. (2 Hours ago)
