Lost Planet 3 Delayed

By Ashley Woodcock, 3 years ago
Last month, we covered a heavy amount of details for Capcom's upcoming third-person shooter, Lost Planet 3, which included a release date, screens, a trailer, and pre-order details. On the pre-order side of things, Capcom have released three new trailers showcasing the new goodies to be had and used in the upcoming title. Unfortunately, bad news ruins the vibe of the pre-order trailers, as the third instalment of the Lost Planet series has suffered a bit of a delay, as noticed by the sharp eyes of the guys over at Joystiq.

Starting off with the trailers, here are the videos and details for pre-order bonuses from participating retailers:

Best Buy (US) - Assault Pack



• 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
