Game Synopsis:

Lost Planet 3 is a combination Third and First-person Shooter, that is the 2013 prequel to the entire Lost Planet game franchise. The extreme and unpredictable conditions that characterized the Lost Planet series return, harsher than ever before as new truths about the foreboding planet and the colonial history of E.D.N. III are revealed. Game features include a new protagonist, a variety of player perspectives, ever-changing weather, tactical combat against Akrid enemies, and multiplayer support.

Lost Planet 3 introduces Jim Peyton, a rig pilot who leaves Earth to take on a hazardous but lucrative contract on E.D.N. III. Working for Neo-Venus Construction (NEVEC) who are preparing the planet for colonization, Jim joins his fellow pioneers at the Coronis base and begins surveying the uncharted terrain and obtaining samples of the planet's energy supply – thermal energy. With NEVEC's existing thermal energy reserve running low, the fate of the Coronis mission depends on the natural source of the energy supply being located. Realizing that this is a great opportunity for a huge payoff and an early ticket home to his family, Jim braves the risk of the treacherous environment.

Lost Planet 3 delivers a mix of both first and third-person action. Acting as a home away from home and offering protection from the ever changing climate, Jim soon discovers the utility rig's array of tools are just as useful at taking out Akrid as they are at helping him fulfill his contract work. Outside the rig, the action switches to third-person with Jim at the mercy of the elements. He'll need to battle against hostile enemies with a mix of gun and melee based combat while also surviving the forces of nature. With a number of multiplayer modes and a compelling single player experience, Lost Planet 3 delves deeper into the Lost Planet universe, uncovering hidden truths within the unique and dynamic environment of E.D.N. III.
