This morning’s leak has just been made official by Capcom over at their Captivate event. Lost Planet 3 is indeed on the way, scheduled for a 2013 release on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
The game will feature a return to E.D.N III, with an ever changing climate changing the gameplay and a dynamic battlefield. You’ll play as Jim, a blue collar worker, in a mixture of first and third person viewpoints, utilising a “rig” with special tools to help in your fight against the Akrid.
Expect the usual array of multiplayer modes too.
Here are some screens:
