Third party DRM: SteamThis game requires a free Steam account to play.
The larger than life action of Lost Planet 2, comes to PC! Lost Planet 2 is the sequel to Lost Planet™: Extreme Condition, the landmark third-person shooter which debuted on Xbox 360 and went on to sell over 2.3 million units worldwide after its release. Lost Planet 2 offers deeper insight into the world of E.D.N III and the uncertain fate of future mankind.
Already acclaimed for its visual accomplishments from the console versions, Lost Planet 2 will define the 3D experience on the PC. Stunning environments will immerse the player in NVIDIA Vision Surround technology, and the rebalanced gameplay and streamlined control mechanics make Lost Planet 2 PC the ultimate Lost Planet experience.
A decade has passed since the events of the first game, and the face of E.D.N. III has changed dramatically. Terraforming efforts have been successful and the ice has begun to melt, giving way to lush tropical jungles and harsh unforgiving deserts. Mankind has engaged in a civil war to take control of the precious Thermal Energy that powers weapons and vehicles on E.D.N. III and resulted in a separation into various factions.
Players will control heroes from each faction across 6 interconnected episodes, viewing the war from the perspective of each, creating a truly unique interactive experience. With this concept, players will have the opportunity to engage in the story in a much more dynamic way as plot threads evolve from different players’ perspectives.
The intense and action-packed campaign mode comes with the ability to form teams of up to 4 players online. Beyond the deep single-player and co-op modes, Lost Planet 2 is loaded with extensive multiplayer modes allowing up to 16 players to compete online, each with their own customizable avatar.
No action game would be complete without an arsenal of weaponry, and Lost Planet 2 has a huge variety of hardware for players to unleash on unsuspecting enemies. Machine guns, shotguns, rocket launchers, lasers, sniper rifles, grenades and a host of other weapons are scattered across the game. The grappling hooks that made the gameplay in Lost Planet a true 3-D experience are back, allowing gamers to gain tactical advantage by moving to elevated locations quickly.
Lost Planet 2’s biggest weapons come on two legs: the heavily armed and armored robotic Vital Suits return in greater numbers and variety than the first game. There are VS that transform into other vehicles, hold up to three players and some that even take multiple players to operate.

This game should be accredited as "monster hunter in space" and it a beautiful sequel to lost colonies. Unfortunately this game never received the hype and due that it deserved. It's a mix of challenging and rewarding and is amazing when with a group of other players, especially in the co-op.
The games real appeal is not even it's story either (though it is an awesome one and very animesque) but rather it's character customization and fighting akrid, with the vital suits being a close 2nd to those two. The game's mechs or vital suits are awesome and each as it's own feel and some have their own lil secrets.
The akrid actually tie in with the story and add abit more depth as well and are also the most engaging for boss battles. With skills/abilities determining how exactly you will do those battles and also battle against the enemy factions.
This game is an amazing experience with others online and my personal suggestion is to buy the title and to love the awesomeness of this game's online experience.
Big gap between Single and Multi Experienceryucchang | Sept. 22, 2013 | See all ryucchang's reviews »
Actually this game is quite good and offers a great 'multi-player' experience. The only problem I had with it is that I didn't have any friends to start off with. So I started on my own. The bots that are assigned to you aren't that smart to enjoy together. You mostly have to do everything for them which is quite annoying since the levels of this game were designed to play with humans not bots. The game could have been rather better if they just labeled it 'co-op only.' Another thing that annoyed me was that the earlier missions of the game ended so quickly. You move in, kill some monster, activate some things, end of mission. It's hard to get a grasp of the story and what you're actually doing. Overall, a great game if you have some friends to play with.
A co-op game no one should missCyberspyXD | Aug. 26, 2013 | See all CyberspyXD's reviews »
Lost planet manages to deliver a story that makes you care (At least in the final hours) and gameplay that will put a smile on your face for hours. It is best played in co-op but you can solo it if you want to. The game rewards fun and your gonna have lots of fun piloting mechs, taking out enemy's and beating bosses with your friends. Multiplayer is also good and is better then what was featured in lost planet 1 but generally is the same with some differences like character customization and loadouts.
Sequel made for cooplok0812 | Aug. 25, 2013 | See all lok0812's reviews »
If you enjoyed the original Lost Planet where you get to fight against giant huge monster chances are you will like this one where you will be doing the same thing again except on one condition, the game is made playing with another human being. The game have a 4 players coop story mode where you can team up with others to tackle the story. The AI of this game is very bad so some of the stages are close to impossible and frustrating when it is done solo with AI. The game still looks great and gorgeous and the sound effect are well done. The game also have other multiplayer modes that can increase the longevity with its unlock system. This is definitely a must get if you have a friend to play with.
A co-op adventure that everyone should experience.lucaswrite | Aug. 2, 2013 | See all lucaswrite's reviews »
Playing this game with a friend is just incredible. The environments range from snowy hills to infested forests to ruined cities to 500mph desert trains. This game is an absolute blast! There's a variety of weapons that the players can use to take on the creatures the game throws at them. And the main draw of the game are the exceptionally huge bosses the game has to offer. Some of the biggest bosses ever in video game history are in Lost Planet 2. And you're just a soldier with access to creative and intuitive weapons. With a group of people, taking on a boss the size of the empire state building is a jolt. You have access to mech-suits, giant laser rifles, huge machine guns, and bolt cannons.
If you don't have someone to play with, the game loses a lot of credibility. It's really not so fun taking on the giant bosses by yourself, or taking on different terrains by yourself. A group is best, and even just 1 friend to tag along is cool. Check this out with a friend.
