Lost Planet 3 multiplayer trailer omits PC branding

Lost Planet 3 580x300

Having just announced a special loss of US $73m due to the cancelation of unannounced projects, Capcom will have to rely ever more heavily on its established franchises. That’s doubtlessly why the publisher would very much like you to check out the multiplayer trailer for its forthcoming sci-fi action sequel Lost Planet 3. The 90 second clip showcases a variety of weapons, modes and snow swept environments.

As noted by Blues News, the trailer concludes with a flurry of PlayStation and Xbox logos but somehow manages to omit the (already confirmed) fact that the game will be coming to PC. Considering that the PC versions of the first two games in the series received consistently lower marks than their console counterparts, this lack of attention isn’t exactly encouraging.

Lost Planet 3 is due for release on 30 August.

‘special loss’ The hell is that?

Just checked their 2012 consolidated financial statements; they’re fine. About $80m USD Net Profit per year, although I couldn’t find their EPS. They also have a fair amount of cash on hand.

Note: This is a brief glance glance without reading the director’s report, the notes to the financial statements, without being familiar with Japanese specific IASB etc.

 

meh. im not a big lost planet fan.

 

Why do the graphics look worse than the orginal?

 

lordezekiel,

It’s now using the old Unreal 3 Engine and also has been outsourced to a new development team.

Personally they should have stayed with the MT Framework 2.0 Engine. Well Hopefully the series doesn’t get cancelled after this as I reckon a Lost Planet 4 game would be visually stunning running on Unreal 4 Engine.
