At their annual Captivate event in Rome, Capcom officially announced a third Lost Planet game, fittingly titled Lost Planet 3. The game follows a character named Jim, a utility rig pilot who left earth in the rear-view mirror to take on a lucrative contract on E.D.N. III. Much like previous entries in the Lost Planet franchise, Lost Planet 3 will feature third-person shooter mechanics, as well as first-person "utility rig action." The game will come with a multiplayer mode in addition to the single player campaign.
Lost Planet 3 is scheduled for an early 2013 launch on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. You can watch the game's first CGI trailer below.
