The title will still be set on the planet of E.D.N. III.
It was revealed today that Lost Planet 3 is officially in production. The next iteration in the series, rather than a sequel as implied by the name, will serve as a prequel to both Lost Planet: Extreme Condition and Lost Planet 2. This time around players will assume the role of Jim, a rig pilot on E.D.N. III (featured in past Lost Planet games) for NEVEC. Part of his job is to assist fellow pioneers at the Coronis base to prepare the planet for colonization. However, the team must first locate thermal energy in order to proceed with their plans.
