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.

Awesome Vid, LP3 had me worried a bit about new developers and the Western look but this was a great video. They addressed some of the aspects of what needed to be improved on and keep the originality in the MP. I like both LP1 & LP2 but i hated the MP because you get staggered when you get shot at and it was hard to fight back because you couldn't shoot back, pretty much whoever shoots first wins. I agreed with you @1, the grapple hook was the signature trademark of the LP series, hopefully we get more details soon.

The Woolite commercial before the video started was more exciting than this.
