The next entry in Capcom’s formerly wacky cooperative shoot-up-the-bugs series is shying from its roots. Lost Planet 3 looks decidedly void of any silliness as they shift focus to newcomer Jim Peyton, who finds himself fighting to survive on the frozen and Akrid infested planet, E.D.N. III.I’ll miss the co-op, since that was the only reason I played the last game (and it was genuinely fun), but the new style doesn’t look entirely uninteresting.
This new trailer for Lost Planet 3 details how excruciatingly painful it is to freeze to death, in case that’s something you wanted to know more about. Spoiler: your eyes literally explode, but only after you experience hallucinations and searing pain all over your body.
Lost Planet 3 launches on the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on August 27th.
