Lost Planet 3, the latest chapter in the Lost Planet series will be released across North America on June 25 and in Europe on June 28, for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, Capcom has officially announced.
Capcom also showed off a new trailer, revealing that main character Jim Peyton (a Utility Rig pilot for NEVEC, or Neo-Venus Construction) will encounter a group known as the Snow Pirates on planet E.D.N. III and will form a unique bond with one in particular.
According to an official product description, “while under attack from E.D.N. III’s indigenous Akrid, Jim’s Utility Rig falls down an icy fissure, leaving him unconscious and injured. Jim wakes to find himself in what appears to be a secret base, hidden beneath the planet’s frozen surface. On discovering he was rescued by one of the base’s inhabitants, Mira, the daughter of So’ichi (the Snow Pirate leader), he soon realizes that NEVEC are no longer the only occupants of E.D.N. III. With this encounter with the Snow Pirates new truths about the foreboding planet and the colonial history are set to be unveiled.”
Capcom also announced that those who pre-order Lost Planet 3 will receive special bonuses based on the retailer they choose, including the Freedom Fighter Pack from GameStop (five unique multiplayer characters and two rig upgrades), the Assault Pack from Best Buy (three unique weapons and two rig upgrades) and the Punisher Pack from Amazon (three unique weapons and two rig upgrades).
