Capcom have used Xbox Live to reveal their latest upcoming title Lost Planet 2, launching a debut trailer on the Xbox 360's online service. An official press release is due to follow later in the week, but that's not important because you can now find this new video and all the juicy gameplay footage and information it features, locally on AusGamers.

A few tasty bits have been confirmed from the trailer:
  • Same planet as Extreme Condition, 10 years on - Climate change has created new environments such as jungles.
  • Story will focus on various characters from the perspectives of different groups.
  • Gameplay changes - cooperative multiplayer (4 players?).
  • Capcom's MT-Framework 2.0 Engine - trailer is in-game footage.
Although debuted on Xbox Live, it has been hinted that the game will still be launching on PC and PlayStation 3 as well as the Xbox 360. Several screengrabs from the trailer can be found on our new Lost Planet 2 game page.

I enjoyed the first game, but hit a serious brick wall with one of the bosses and just never revisited it

Is it just me or does the trailer have lots and lots of missing frames making the footage jump and skip? The walking Mech things seems to show it well near the begging of the game footage.

Yeah looks like the automated encoder didn't handle it so well. The HD downloadable ver is fine. Will get the streaming ver manually re-encoded.

EDIT: All fixed now. streaming version 30FPS silky smooth.

Looks pretty rad. I played the first one a bit, didn't mind it. I wasn't too fond of the constantly ticking down health though. I'd be happy to see that gone.

Just a heads up, the first Lost Planet is currently $4.99 USD on Steam, which is about $7.80 AUD at the moment. Pretty good deal, I just bought it.
