The third installment of the Lost Planet series hit stores yesterday, and to coincide with the launch, Capcom released a new cinematic trailer to fill you in on the game’s story.
LP3 tells the tale of Jim Petyton – a colonist and miner stationed on the frozen planet of E.D.N. III as a worker for the Neo-Venus Construction Company, or NEVEC. Stuck on the cold, dead planet, he counts down the days until he can return home to his family.
Unfortunately for Jim, enormous pissed off aliens begin to pop up and complicate the situation. He finds himself in the midst of a conflict that, as a prequel, will show how NEVEC took over the planet, thus setting up the events that took place in the original Lost Planet.
Lost Planet 3 is out now for Windows PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in North America, and launches on Aug. 30 in Europe.
