Now I know you are saying to yourself this seems like Deja Vu, you are saying but wasn’t there already a Lost Planet 2 multiplayer demo released. You wouldn’t be wrong, apparently Capcom felt the need to release another one and as much as we liked the first one we won’t question it. This may be the first double demo I can recall that wasn’t due to technical issues, it shows Capcom’s confidence in their title at a time when its hard to get some developers to even put out a demo before a games’s release, let alone two. Get ready to grab some weapons, hop in a vital suit, 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 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!
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 11 th, one week earlier than previously announced.
