Lost Planet 3: Scenario and Akrid Survival Modes Revealed

Following a multiplayer debut trailer yesterday, Capcom today has revealed further details regarding the different available modes in Lost Planet 3.

The game’s online component will feature four different multiplayer modes and six maps. Information on each of those will be revealed on a regular basis as we approach the game’s release in late August.

Today we get to know about the first two modes – Scenario mode and Akrid Survival.

Scenario Mode sets each team with a series of either offensive or defensive challenges and mixes them up with the extreme and unpredictable conditions of E.D.N. III. Players can compete in both third-person on-foot action and in first-person combat using Vital Suits, a futuristic staple of the LP series.

Akrid Survival sees two teams of three players compete independently of each other in a series of encounters against waves of hostile Akrid before the teams go head to head in a final PvP elimination round.

Lost Planet 3 is being developed by Spark Unlimited and will release on August 27th in North America and August 30th in Europe.
