Lost Planet 3 fell off the radar since E3 of last year, but Capcom saw fit to finally dish out a solid release. The series that helped kick off the current generation will end its trilogy as we’re clamoring for the ensuing next big thing from Microsoft, since the PlayStation 4 already got the jump.
Just three weeks after another Capcom game, Remember Me, Lost Planet 3 comes June 25th (28th in Europe) for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. That’s in addition to the “Pirate Reveal” trailer also showing off what the protagonist of Jim’s story will be in Lost Planet 3.
As the title suggests, a bunch of pre-purchase items are announced straight from Capcom’s blog. For visualization and more info on each of the retailer’s offerings, follow the Lost Planet 3 link here.
From Gamestop, get the Freedom Fighter pack consisting of five multiplayer characters of two rig upgrades.
Pressurized Claw — Using a bank of hydraulic actuators it increases your utility rig’s claw strength and crushing power by 25%.
Tungsten Carbide Drill — It has an ultimate tensile strength nearly twice that of a standard issue utility rig drill. It delivers 25% more damage to Akrid enemies.
From Amazon, the Punisher pack gives you the rig upgrades above as well as three weapons, replacing the multiplayer characters of gamestop’s.
Incinerator (Particle Thrower Variant) — This improved version delivers greater range and damage than its predecessor, but with less accuracy and a tendency to overheat rapidly. The particle beam can set targets on fire.
NEVEC Punisher (Pulse Rifle) — A NEVEC military division pulse rifle that sends out bursts of fire at an extremely fast pace.
Spit-Fire (Grenade Launcher Variant) — This modified grenade launcher shoots out Fire Wasp “projectiles” instead of grenades as its default ammo type. These also cause splash damage on impact.
Rounding out the bonuses is Best Buy, with their Assault pack comprising of the same layout as Amazon’s, yet the three weapons are completely different.
Assault Shotgun — A NEVEC specialized version of the normal Shotgun, this prototype weapon has semi-automatic fire allowing for a faster delivery of damage.
Customized Pneumatic Injector Gun — An improved variant of the Pneumatic Injector Gun. Although it features a slower rate of fire and requires more frequent reloads, it does more damage per bullet.
Destructeur (LaRoche’s Assault Rifle) — Variant of the Assault Rifle that has a slower rate of fire but does more damage than the standard NEVEC-issued version.
