Lost Planet: Extreme Condition Colonies Edition Dated and Detailed


If you’ve never patrolled the frozen wastes of Lost Planet, this spring may be your best chance. Lost Planet: Extreme Condition Colonies Edition has been dated by Capcom for a May 27, 2008 release. The game will retail for only $29.99, be available for both PC and Xbox 360, allow for cross-platform multiplayer, and will include a ton of new content such as new campaign modes, online modes, playable characters, multiplayer maps, and weapons for both humans and VS.
