Cooperative and competitive modes return to Capcom’s arctic bug-killing series.
Rather than offering straight up deathmatches, the pair of new modes–“Scenario” and “Akrid Survival”–will pit you and your friends against the harsh conditions of E.D.N. III. Scenario is a collection of offensive and defensive challenges taking place either on-foot or in the pilot’s seat of one of the game’s Vital Suits while Akrid Survival is the game’s wave-based mode where separate teams fight off hordes of oncoming bugs independently of one another.
Look for our impressions of these new modes later today. “Lost Planet 3″ will be available on the Xbox 360 and PS3 on August 27.
