While Lost Planet wasn’t the hottest title when it was released, it certainly was a solid title. Now the sequel is coming out, and Capcom has announced that the demo is coming to XBLA and PSN.
Prepare to be blown away by the latest Lost Planet 2 demo coming your way next week on Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network. Get ready to hop in a vital suit, grab some weapons and battle with 16 players in real time. Featuring the “Turbulent Jungle” map from the online versus mode, the new Lost Planet 2 demo will include full chat support and stat tracking. While the demo will be available publicly on April 21 for Xbox 360 and April 22 for PlayStation 3, Capcom’s most avid fans will get a sneak preview of this demo beginning March 31 via community-distributed voucher codes for early access. Keep an eye out for the availability of early access codes coming your way right here on Capcom-Unity!
Players who download and play the demo will be rewarded when they purchase the full retail version of Lost Planet 2 with immediate access to the Machine Gun SP which fires three round bursts.
Capcom is also pleased to announce that the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Lost Planet 2 will now be hitting stores on Tuesday May 11th, one week earlier than previously announced. A PC version is scheduled for release in Fall 2010.
Take a look at the Capcom Unity blog to try to get early access. Otherwise look for this demo late in April.
