Some Ambiguous Details For Lost Planet 3 Multiplayer

Do you want to know about Lost Planet 3‘s multiplayer content?! Do you?! DO YOU?! Well, good. You can see the new news below, in the snowy wastelands of… below the jump.

There are, they say, to be four modes. BUT TWO OF THEM ARE SECRETS! Oh my goodness, I’m on tenterhooks until the next press release now! But the two revealed are Scenario and Akrid Survival, about which you can learn here:

All clear now, eh? Although admittedly what I took from it was GIANT STOMPY ROBOTS ARE BEST! However, fortunately I have a secret source on E.D.N. III who’s told me what they’re actually about. Scenario gives both the offensive and defensive teams challenges to complete, which obviously will conflict. And Akrid Survival is two teams of three players fist of all fighting waves of baddies in independent battles, and then coming together for a finale of blatting at each other. Presumably the stronger your team is after the first round, the better an advantage you have in the face-to-face.

Don’t forget that the game recently slipped to August 27th. I recommend checking out Eurogamer’s article on the development of this game.

    Maybe they should have just made the multiplayer robot-on-robot only. At least that concept isn’t driven into the ground (yet).

      We’re still talking about games, right?

      • Pryde says:

        Yeah, like Drunken robot pornography.

          If you plug them in too long they become drunk with power.

          I’m going to have that song in my head all day now.

          It’s D to the R to the Capital P
          (We made this)
          Drunken Robot Pornography
          We prototyped, refined, and hacked in C
          We’re Dejobaan Mechatronic Industries

    Looks dreadful.

    Barely any mech action.

    Mech view has gone first person which is a total shame because the mechs were all delightful contraptions in Lost Planet.

    Looks worse than the DmC reboot really.
