There are times when the whipping winds of the ice planet E.D.N. III are so cold, you swear your soul starts to freeze solid. Constantly contending with the evil, menacing Akrid certainly doesn't help, either. Sometimes you can't help but think that even if humankind could survive this place, humanity could not. You'd never let your employer — Neo-Venus Construction — the company prepping this godforsaken place for colonization hear you say those words, though, since they're your only ticket out of here. Your only ticket home. Just when you start to wonder if this is the ice storm that'll freeze you over, or if this is the gunfight with the hostile Akrid that'll frost-bite your soul, you think of your family back home and that tiny corner of your heart thaws anew. This is all for them, so you climb back into your utility rig and get back to work. You have no choice but to survive this Lost Planet.Your name is Jim Peyton and you work for NEVEC on the barren, frozen wilderness of E.D.N. III as they prepare this planet for colonization. You're equipped with an astounding array of tools and weapons in a utility rig that is your sole lifeline in this mysterious world. Your job is to harvest thermal energy, the resource that NEVEC desperately needs to solve Earth's energy crisis, and that, unfortunately, allows menacing Akrid to reproduce. Experience murderous ice storms and heart-pounding gunfights as you reveal the secrets of this planet on your quest to earn your way back to your beloved family. Play in first- and third-person combat or in a full set of multiplayer modes with up to 10 people online, and enjoy the visually stunning, Hollywood performance-capture graphics brought to life by Unreal Engine 3 for unforgettable and immersive gameplay.
