"Lost Planet" to have multiplayer

(I am so bummed I didn't semi scoop this.)

I've mentioned before how stoked I am about Capcom's Xbox 360 exclusive title, Lost Planet: Extreme Condition.

In this month's Official Xbox Magazine, in addition to the playable demo that's been available for download since E3, there was a survey for providing feedback for the demo.

One exciting nugget in the survey was the question of what additional vehicles should be in the game. Up until then, Capcom had been somewhat non-committal on whether multiplayer would be part of the game, but one of the survey options is "large transports for multiple players", which seemed to be definite nod to the inclusion of multiplayer.

Then today, Capcom confirmed the existence of multiplayer, and that it will be playable at the Leipzig Games Convention (translated here) August 24-27.

According to, "visitors will be able to participate in highly intense four vs four team battles as they struggle not only against the opposing force, but the harsh conditions of the game’s ice-bound world."

I was stoked for this game anyway, but if the mutliplayer is as solid as this demo is, we're in for one heck of an Xbox 360 exclusive next year.

I just hope Gears of War doesn't have a Halo-effect on Lost Planet. I don't want this game to go the way of Beyond Good & Evil, Armed and Dangerous, or Psychonauts.
