Lost Planet 3 Pre-Order Bonuses Announced

Capcom formally announced all the goodie you can get when you pre-order Lost Planet 3 through any of the participating retailers.

Gregaman posted the news on his official capcom blog today, along with a list of the various pre-order bonuses you can get from each of the retailers who are taking part in this efforts.

First up, GameStop and EB Games are offering the Freedom Fighter Pack which gets you quite a few shiny things. You’ll receive five brand new characters (Which includes HUNK from the Resident Evil series) as well as two upgrades for your Rig. Full details:

Characters:
Grace Peyton — The woman behind the man. Beautiful but also tough and resilient, Grace keeps the family together whilst the earth falls into chaos and Jim is working millions of miles from home.

Phil Braddock — Braddock is the head of the NEVEC crew and runs the operations at Coronis base on E.D.N. III. He stays calm despite the extreme pressures of the mission and keeps his team focused.

Jenette Diaz, the Lost Contractor — Jim’s predecessor and an accomplished utility rig pilot who joined the Coronis crew on their maiden voyage to E.D.N. III. She mysteriously went missing a year and a half into their mission.

LP1 Gale Holden — Returning in his Lost Planet 1 look, Gale is the father of the main character of Lost Planet: Extreme Condition and a pivotal character in the Lost Planet universe.

Bonus character: HUNK – From the world of Resident Evil, HUNK is Umbrella Corporation’s most trusted hit man and leader of the Umbrella Security Service’s Alpha Team. If anyone can survive the brutally inhospitable conditions of E.D.N.III, he can.

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.

Amazon offers the Punisher pack that comes with the same Rig upgrades but instead of characters, it gives you some unique weaponry:

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.

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.

 

And finally you can get the Assault Pack if you purchase via Best-Buy, which is much like the Punisher Pack only with different weapons.

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.

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.
