Stick to the plan.
Capcom confirmed today that Lost Planet 3 will be released on June 25th in North America and June 28th in Europe. They also released a new trailer that gives us a closer look at the story behind the game and revealed some of the pre-order bonus items that you’ll receive.
If you pre-order the game, GameStop will give you The Freedom Fighter Pack which comes with five extra multiplayer charcters (including Hunk from Resident Evil) and two Rig updates, Best Buy will give you The Assault Pack which comes with three weapons and two Rig upgrades and Amazon will give you The Punisher Pack which also comes with three different weapons and two Rig updates. We’ll include links to the different bonus items once the stores post them.
I wasn’t a huge fan of the first two games and the third doesn’t look like it’s going to do much different to win me over but I’m willing to give it another shot. That fact that Capcom outsourced development of Lost Planet 3 to Spark Unlimited (Turning Point: Fall of Liberty, Legendary) doesn’t give me a lot of confidence in it though. I guess we’ll find out in June if a third time really is a charm.
For now, check out the trailer below.
