Welcome to the jungle! After the cold reception that was awaiting you in the first Lost Planet, Capcom turns the heat up in the sequel with the hidden secrets of E.D.N. III revealed! It's been a while too, because Lost Planet 2 takes place a decade after the events of the prequel - just enough time for the planet to radically change environment. With new locations uncovered, you and a crack investigative squad must stay together and fight never-before-seen threats. On top of indigenous hazards, there are also a vast number of pirates that need taking out - and there's a different kind of pirate for every season and occasion it seems. It's okay though, because your very own customisable character is a pirate himself, so stick with your teammates and crush your foes. As the climates changes, you find that you don't need to maintain heat in Lost Planet 2. This is one of the fundamental alterations to the gameplay - you can tackle missions in your own time without having to worry about fighting the clock as well. New weapons and Vital Suits are available, and with these come additional powers - check out the man-sized spacecraft which can allow you to fly around low-gravity space! Cool gadgets like these shouldn't be left for single-player only, and that's where the extensive multiplayer mode comes in. Fight in teams for ultimate victory, in a vast range of challenging (and humourous) battle maps. You can also get three friends together and try completing the campaign together as well.
