Lost Planet 3 is a third-person action shooter developed by Spark Unlimited in collaboration with Capcom. The California-based studio Spark Unlimited previously worked on the 2004 title Call of Duty: Finest Hour for GameCube, PlayStation 2 and Xbox.
In Lost Planet 3, players take on the role of Jim Peyton as he researches sources of energy on the planet E.D.N. III. Peyton accidentally uncovers a hidden base where the Snow Pirates call home deep below the planet’s surface. Mira, the daughter of Snow Pirate leader So’ichi, rescues Peyton but the other natives are not pleased with his presence on their planet.
Of course, the native humans are not the only thing gamers will have to struggle against in Lost Planet 3. In addition to the Snow Pirate tribe living on the planet, players will fight against hostile alien inhabitants. On top of all that, Peyton will have his hands full with his NEVEC research.
