Captivate 2012: Lost Planet 3 announced
Posted on April 10, 2012 by Paige Carlson

Still in development but coming out in early 2013 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Windows PC, Lost Planet 3 has left much anticipation in gamers. The story is of utility rig pilot Jim who is working hard in this dangerous climate on his mission to find thermal energy and earn money for his family. 

As the trailer suggests, this is far from easy. Danger surrounds Jim and death is just a mistake away.While you are protected from the hostile and changing environment by the utility rig, the beautiful freezing tundra offers home to the Akrid. The beasts attack with much more fervor than before and if that isn’t enough danger, the ice storms are frequent and unpredictable.

The player’s mission is to set up thermal posts around EDN III and the search for such willopen doors to many more of the secrets held on the planet.

Lost Planet 3 is a prequel in the Lost Planet series, offering various nods to its predecessors- such as Jim’s utility rig being a forerunner of the Vital Suits. Gameplay offers a mix of first-person combat in the utility rig that holds your tools and third-person combat on foot. The game also allows for exploration of the planet with multiple multiplayer modes.

No because I'm a big fan of The Elder Scrolls and the idea of a MMORPG version of the game sounds horrible.
