Ensuring that this summer is freezing cold, Capcom is gearing up to release Lost Planet 3, bringing snow into your lounge while the sun is shining outside. This time, you're returning to E.D.N. III to discover the origins of the Akrid, playing as blue collar everyman, Jim Peyton.
Amid the swirling blizzards and relentless assault of insectoid Akrid, we found time to interview Capcom Producer and Project Lead on Lost Planet 3, Andrew Szymanski, quizzing him about the third game in the series and where it aims to take players this time around.
Revealing how the Akrid have evolved, more about Jim's motivation and how Dead Space infuenced the game, Szymanski also talks multiplayer, co-op and much more besides. Like for example, is Earth a lost planet, philosophically speaking? Find out!
Lost Planet 3 is out at the end of August. Read our latest hands-on preview here.
