The lights are on
Capcom today announced Lost Planet 3, due out for PlayStation 3, PC, and Xbox 360 early next year.
The third game uses Unreal Engine 3, and is being developed by Spark Unlimited, the team behind Turning Point: Fall of Liberty, Call of Duty: Finest Hour, and Legendary. Here are the plot details:
Lost Planet 3 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.
Posted below is the debut trailer.
EPIC!!!!!!!!!!! CANT WAIT!!!!!!!!
Well it can be assumed, this is has to be a prequel to the First Two games once because it says NEVEC is colonizing the planet and two...the planet is still an ice ball (in LP 2 the planet was beginning to "warm" up and did so.)
My question is why the hell would you contract Spark Unlimited for a series that still has a semblance of high expectation. I mean for really, after their past releases I wouldn't trust them with a still beloved series.
Then again I can't create video games either however still a bad game is a bad game...
Very cool. I really like the Lost Planet series.
This looks awesome! I hope they fix the type of guns you could get so there's more variation.
I swear if Spark F**k this game up ima be piss -__-
looks like this one may be a bit more story/character oriented. I really didn't care if my LP2 characters died. They were so goofy.
SO FRICKEN AWESOME!!!!!!
I'm one of the many led to believe Spark might have been making SWBF3... :'-(
If the in-game graphics are this good... that would be one hell of an optic orgasm!
Can't. Wait. The art looks amazing & the past 2 titles have been fun. For some reason it gives that warm and cozy feeling for sci-fi similar to how I felt about Metroid Prime :0)
I guess I'm gonna need to play the second game because I remember the first one ending with lush green environments (getting rid of the snow). No clue what's going one at this point. Trailer looks pretty damn good though...so cold.
Go to alien planet to colonize, plays game to become trained.
