The lights are on
Capcom is letting NEVEC forces and the Snow Pirates go at it in Lost Planet 3's four multiplayer modes.
The game also features six maps where combatants on either side will have to battle each other as well as the hostile elements of the planet E.D.N. III (although by the looks of the trailer below, it's not so cold that you need a hat).
Today Capcom is talking about two particular modes: Scenario and Akrid Survival. The former mixes up offensive and defensive challenges for each team, while the latter has the two sides (of three players each) competing against each other independently to see who can beat back waves and waves of Akrid before the NEVEC and pirates face off in a PvP elimination round. Multiplayer also includes customizable loadouts, vital suits, and ziplines.
At the end of the trailer, you can also get some info on the game's pre-order bonuses, which include five multiplayer characters (including Hunk from Resident Evil), and two rig weapons.
Lost Planet 3 comes out on August 27 for PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. Click here for our hands-on impressions of the game.

Great. Another mediocre game with less than mediocre multiplayer shoehorned in. Just what these consoles needed.
This actually looks kinda fun. Just...not $60 fun.
This looks terrible. There are a lot of haters out there but Lost Planet 1's multi-player was loads of fun, probably some of the best times I've had this gen. This series showed so much promise from the very beginning, all of it now squandered. If Capcom wasn't going to produce the sequels the series deserved why did they even bother making them in the first place?
Spark Unlimited's projects have been horrible. Legendary and Turning Point: Fall of Liberty, both poor games. The Call of Duty Finest Hour title wasn't bad but it was not something to write home about. It would be wise for everyone to avoid LP3 like the plague.
Sounds better than 2's at least.
This comes out three days before my birthday, it'll be great.
I thought Lost planet 3 was supposed to be pure single player, apparently not I guess.
Those player textures are horrible!
