Game Description: The latest chapter in the Lost Planet series comes to Xbox 360, PlayStation3 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 planetís energy supply Ė Thermal Energy. With NEVECís 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.
Lost Planet 3 delivers a mix of both first and third person action. Acting as a home away from home and offering protection from the ever changing climate, Jim soon discovers the utility rigís 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. Heíll need to battle against hostile enemies with a mix of gun and melee based combat whilst surviving all that is thrown at him.
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.
