Lost Planet: Extreme Condition
Lost Planet: Extreme Condition is a third-person shooter game developed by Capcom.
In the distant future, it is no longer possible to live on Earth. The NEVEC corporation plans to colonize a distant planet of E.D.N. III. Upon arriving on its surface, the NEVEC forces are met with resistance from an alien race called the Acrid and is forced to leave the planet. A second attempt to colonize E.D.N. is taken by NEVEC which has been preparing for the assault. It is revealed that the Acrid contain thermal energy within them. This energy is essential for the colonists' survival on the planet. Civilian colonists and soldiers call themselves the Snow Pirates and try to make the planet habitable.
It is possible to play the game either in first-person or third-person modes. The players are able to travel the in-game world on foot or using mechs that are equipped with heavy weapons such as the Gatling machine gun or rocket launchers.
Thermal energy is used for powering the mechs and several weapons. The players have to keep an eye out on their energy level as the planet's harsh conditions and bad weather drain it down. In order to get more thermal energy, the players have to kill the Acrid or activate the data transfer posts. If the player has no thermal energy left, they die.
The game also features a multiplayer mode. For game modes are present, and the depletion of the player's thermal energy reserve does not result in instant death.
