Cool i always wanted more LP!
Long rumored, Capcom has finally revealed Lost Planet Colonies, not only adding single and multiplayer content to the original game, but also cross platform multiplayer compatibility. The campaign will add an extra 11 mission campaign, Score Attack and Time Trial Battle Mode, while multiplayer will get 4 new maps, 4 new playable characters, 10 new weapons and no less than 7 new game modes, such as Akrid Hunting (players team up to fend off an insect assault) and Akrid Egg (recover an unhatched egg).

Where's the PS3 love for it. Unless the price of this will be lower than the standard MSRP on new release titles , not worth picking up

Akrid Hunting sounds like invasion in UT2K4, could be entertaining.

Yeah that sucks! .. any chance we get the extra stuff as a downloadable content just like the previously released downloadable content ? (DX10 enhancements + more maps etc ..) even if for a reasonable fee just like Oblivion's DLCs.

I also don't like that it's not an expansion. Stuff like Shivering Isles was downloadable on 360 as well, no excuses here.

Lost Planet is the best example of DirectX 10 and advancing technology, and some PC users complaining about a sequel?

They added A TON of content just for the PC users, so you shouldn't be complaining.

And don't even compare this too Oblivion, what a boring game. :p

Lost Planet was awesome and I will surely buy this...

I must point out though, cross-platform play will almost sure mean GFW-Live.

It has a few worthwhile stories. Sadly they are all side quests. Main quest equals Lame. The expansions where ok too.

im looking forward to this aswell. really liked LP, didnt think i could enjoy a third person shooter, but i was WRONG.

whats the deal? it's going to be the same game/story with extra levels?

It's an all new game, but it's a console sequel... think GTA: Vice City, more an expansion than a real sequel.

Well if it's like the improvement Vice was then I'm all aboard. GTA3 was fun. Vice City is one of the best games ever!

So if Colonies is lame. I'm blaming you NarcissistZero... ::bleh::

Actually, I was wrong:

As you probably already know, Lost Planet: Colonies is going to be a "Platinum Hits" version of the original game but with tons of added content. For the redux of an old game being sold at a discount price ($29.95) they have really loaded it down with new features. There are three new single player modes, six new online multiplayer modes (including one where a random player gets chosen to play one of the big bugs while the other players try to take him down), four new multiplayer maps, four new player characters including two females and two robots, eight new weapons, new environments, cross platform play (PC and 360) and a the new ability to switch from first person view to an RE4 style over-the-shoulder view. Whew!
