Lost Planet 3 Gets Teen Rating by ESRB
The third installment in the Lost Planet series has been rated Teen by the ESRB. Expect plenty of “Blood, Mild Language and Violence” and the absence of hard cursing.
The game is a prequel and takes place before the events of the first two titles in the series. Lost Planet 3 is being developed by Spark Unlimited and published by Capcom for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
It is scheduled for launch on June 25th in North America and June 28th in Europe.
This is a third-person shooter in which players assume the role Jim Peyton, a contract miner battling to find an energy source on a frozen planet. As players explore the frozen environment, they use a variety of weapons (e.g., machine guns, shotguns, grenades, and crossbows) to shoot and kill giant insect-like creatures and enemy soldiers. The frenetic combat is accompanied by realistic gunfire, explosions, and cries of pain.
Creatures emit colorful blood splatter effects when injured and a handful of scenes depict red streaks of blood around human corpses. In some sequences, players pilot mechanized “utility rigs” using a first-person perspective to battle larger creatures and military battle suits. The words “b*tch” and “a*s” can be heard in the dialogue.
