Capcom has announced Lost Planet 3, the latest game in the third-person shooter series set on the remote icy planet, EDN III.

 
The game is technically a prequel to the previous two, with the protagonist Jim scouring the planet for thermal energy, a hotly-contested resource that he is hoping will earn him a few bucks for his family back home.
 
Along the way players will have to battle enemies big and small, including the Akrid, an insectoid alien race. They will also be able to use the giant robotic Utility Rig as both a base and a fighting machine.

One of the bigger challenges, however, will be the climate and environment, which is extreme and teacherous, pushing players to the limits and greatly affecting the way they will play. This is highlighted in the trailer and should make for some interesting gameplay.
 
The game will also feature a full set of multiplayer modes.
 
Lost Planet 3 will launch on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC in early 2013.
