Following on from yesterday’s Lost Planet 3 multiplayer trailer, Capcom has provided first details of the game’s multiplayer component and outlined two of the modes players can look forward to in the final product.

Set in the extreme, uninhabitable conditions of E.D.N. III, Lost Planet 3’s multiplayer modes are set across six diverse maps and allow players to take on the role of either the NEVEC forces or Snow Pirates.

Four multiplayer modes will be featured in the game including ‘Scenario’ and ‘Akrid Survival’. Here are more details on these modes courtesy of Capcom’s press release:

  • Scenario Mode sets each team a series of either offensive or defensive challenges and mixes them up with the extreme and unpredictable conditions of E.D.N. III. Players can compete in both third person on-foot action and in first person combat using the futuristic Vital Suits, making this a dynamic gameplay experience.

  • Akrid Survival sees two teams of three players compete independently of each other in a series of encounters against waves of hostile Akrid before the teams go head to head in a final PvP elimination round.

Capcom also released some new screenshots showing these modes in action:
