Developed by Spark Unlimited and published under Capcom, Lost Planet 3 is available for PS3, PC and Xbox 360. Oddly enough, this game is a prequel to the previous 2 releases, and takes place on the same planet, E.D.N. III, still in an ice-age environment. Players will follow the story of Jim, a colonist working for NEVEC (Neo-Venus construction company), helping the company mine the planet and sending minerals back to Earth. NEVEC, who in the 1st game are the antogonists, play the role of helper to Earth’s cause, making the planet habitable for humans by constructing thermal posts to combat the icy conditions. The plot unfolds as Jim discovers the “real” NEVEC.
