With the recent release of Lost Planet 2 multiplayer demo, Capcom has revealed the bigger picture. Each demo downloaded on Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Network will play a role in the donation to Music for Relief. The new program is called “Kill Big for Charity,” and may generate up to $25,000 for a good cause.
$20,000 will be donated if 1 million downloads are made across both platforms from now until 3:00am on May 6. An additional $5,000 will be donated if an extra 500,000 downloads are made by that time. Codes for the demo can be found in various places such as blogs, gaming sites, and Amazon.com. Your best bet is to probably check out www.lostplanetcommunity.com to obtain a code.
Capcom will be throwing a pre-launch party in Los Angeles on May 6th. Fans can get on the list to the party by signing up at www.capcom-unity.com later this month. At the party, there will be a celebrity (names have not yet been released) Lost Planet 2 tournament and the winning team will choose which Music for Relief fund the money would be put toward.
Additionally, beginning April 1, community members can compete for a seat in the celebrity tournament and a trip to Los Angeles to attend the launch party by submitting their best tips and tricks for beating the new Lost Planet 2 multiplayer demo to Capcom Unity. The Capcom Unity team will choose the four lucky winners and will post them on http://www.capcom-unity.com and www.lostplanet2game.com.
