Lost Planet 2 Co-Op Demo Coming to PSN September 24

Brian Keltner's Avatar Posted by PR Manager, Capcom

Hello PlayStation Blog! Capcom is offering PlayStation 3 owners a chance to experience a piece of the Tokyo Game Show action from the comfort of their own living rooms this year by offering the Lost Planet 2 demo available exclusively for download from PSN starting the first day of the show. Beginning September 24, PS3 owners will not only be able to engage in the frantic battle against the enormous G-Type Akrid, the boss Akrid of the episode 1, but will also get the exclusive experience of two additional missions in an online co-operative extermination of the Akrid of E.D.N. III.

LP2 Coop Screen (1)

Throughout the demo players will run into Akrid ranging from small (in Lost Planet terms) to enormous, as they fight to collect the precious thermal energy contained within the Akrids bodies in order to heal themselves, their friends, and power the armored Vital Suits. Utilizing a number of weapons from machine guns to missile pods and rocket launchers scattered throughout the environment, teams of four players can join up via the PlayStation Network and clear three mission objectives with friends, giving them a glimpse into the jungle of E.D.N III.

In order to promote cooperative gameplay, players can share life-giving thermal energy amongst injured members of their squad while new support weapons allow teammates to boost attack and defense capabilities. Additionally, the new dash feature allows players to sprint for short distances, bringing greater speed to combat.

LP2 Coop Screen (9)

LP2 Coop Screen (3)

The true firepower of Lost Planet comes from the heavily armed and armored robotic Vital Suits as they return in greater numbers and variety than the first game. Players now have the ability to hold up to three players as they make their way through varied environments in the game.

Lost Planet 2 is the first game to make use of Capcom’s updated proprietary game engine, MT Framework 2.0. Rendering dynamic lighting in beautiful massive environments, previous versions of MT Framework have been used on games like Resident Evil 5 and Devil May Cry 4.

For those new to the world of Lost Planet, Lost Planet 2 takes place on the planet of E.D.N. III, 10 years after the events of the first game. Terraforming efforts have melted the icy terrain of the first game and given way to revealing lush tropical jungles and harsh deserts. Players will enter this new environment and follow the exploits of their own customized snow pirate on their quest to seize control of the changing planet.

LP2 Coop Screen (7)

Capcom is also releasing the newest trailer on PSN the same day as the Lost Planet 2 demo. Previously only having shown the jungle and city environments, the new TGS trailer gives you a glimpse of the new desert environment and even bigger Akrid than seen before.

We hope you enjoy the demo and newest trailer! Make sure to look for more news and information about Lost Planet 2 coming over the next few months to the PlayStation Blog!

About time! I am glad we get to try this. Loved the first one, up to that mission where there’s lots of enemies/robots/mechs/whatever it was… I still need to go back and try it again. Love the controls and graphics… I’m excited for Lost Planet 2. :D

Anyone that seen me post in any Capcom related blog post, they know how much I hate you guys for the Monster Hunter 3 going to the Wii, and the failure that was Devil May Cry 4. But I have to say, this game look pretty interesting. It look so interesting, that I actually want it, but I keep remember what Keiji Inafune, head of research at Capcom, said a few months ago about Dead Rising and Lost Planet 2.
Here is what he said “Capcom does promise some special goodies exclusive to the 360 version, in order to show it’s good will towards the console.”

Why should be support a game, when you guys already plan on give us a version with less content that other versions?

stennex said:

September 16th, 8:21 am

September when? I just loved how the demo looked at E3.

BlooodyCow said:

September 16th, 8:24 am

Capcom, you guys are such failures, you cannot even print the date right.

Enigma777 said:

September 16th, 8:25 am

Awesome! I’m extremely excited for this game!

I seen your Uncharted 2 beta stats. You are keeping that 1.0 :) Last night, you had more deaths and kills. So how do you like the beta so far?

Awesome! Great news!

Emadeowa said:

September 16th, 8:32 am

sometimes it takes a few extra secs for it too show up, I’m also experiencing(sp) that as well…

Gringo234 said:

September 16th, 8:33 am

I might give this game a try.

Didn’t play LP1, since it sucked on PS3. Hopefully this is better. The Co-op looks promising; but I’m not sure how integrated it is to the main story mode.

TamarindLAZ said:

September 16th, 8:34 am

I’ll be trying it out. But I’m not happy about us getting a demo later than the 360. Even if it is new.

trustter said:

September 16th, 8:34 am

I hope this one is not so “crapcom” like the first one.

MadmanEU said:

September 16th, 8:37 am

This could turn bad quick. Considering the crap quality of LP1 on Ps3, it’ll be interesting to see if Capcom is going to actually give Ps3 gamers the same attention they do Xbox’ers.

EspadaKiller said:

September 16th, 8:37 am

Wow looking forward to this demo! I played the 360 version, didn’t try co-op but did go against the boss on offline player mode.

locos85 said:

September 16th, 8:39 am

I tried this game on the 360 and I think it sucks. Your crosshairs move around the screen instead of the screen moving with the crosshairs was a horrible idea. Game suck worse than the 1st one.

    Hi Locos, in the options menu of both versions you have the option to turn that feature off if you prefer.

Cool!!! Can’t wait to try it out, from the trailers I’ve seen the graphics looks very good this time. Thanks Capcom ;)

I like this blog, its nice that sony keep us informed, but its kind of sad that the comments are ALWAYS more on the whining side.
Like 2/3 are just complains and such, get a live, this is just videogames, I love them and I like to read what people think about some announcements but I think I will from this day forward just read the news and skips the feedback since here it seems that sony cant just say something without hear a bunch of whinners and ranters. Boring

Valentik999 said:

Thanks for taking the PS3 version of the game seriously this time Capcom, it’s definitely looking like a day one buy for me.

DAS_COOL said:

September 16th, 9:00 am

YES!!! Thx capcom…

But you guys should’ve told us a month ago about this, that way we wouldn’t be so angry about waiting for this for a month.

what about us in the EU will we be seeing this demo at the same time?

Bailers77 said:

Dear Playstation,

This steady stream of games and demos that I want to play has to stop. I mean, I’m about half way through LBP:GOTY, haven’t even taken the shrink wrap off of Batman, and have another online multi-player game to play in soon. Now you come out with a co-op demo for a game that looks awesome?!? There’s no time for all of this goodness. I have responsibilities, family, and a job. Therefore, I respectfully request that from now on you only release one new game or PSN download per month. I don’t have time for more than that.

Does this game support local co-op (split screen)?
