Capcom today announced that Lost Planet: Extreme Condition – Colonies Edition is in development for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Games for Windows – LIVE. Scheduled for release in Australia this June, Lost Planet: Extreme Condition – Colonies Edition extends the acclaimed Lost Planet experience by delivering fresh new content and gameplay options. Both the PC and Xbox 360 version will offer excellent value with the Xbox 360 version being released as part of the Classics range.

Lost Planet: Extreme Condition – Colonies Edition provides the same compelling single player experience found in the original Lost Planet: Extreme Condition, but with the addition of three new modes. In Score Attack all enemies have points assigned to them and the score awarded will change depending on how they are defeated, with skilled marksmen being rewarded for head and core shots. For those who thrive on a challenge then Trial Battle Mode delivers, pitting players against all of the game’s Bosses, one after another. Players of both Score Attack and Trial Battle modes will be able compare their skills and compete for bragging rights via the online ranking system. Finally things get a little crazy with Off Limit Mode which lets players take on Lost Planet’s harsh environments and enemies with over the top super-charged weapons and a powered up grappling hook.
