Lost Planet 3 Box Art and Pre-Order Bonuses Revealed

on March 11, 2013 9:10 AM

Not soon after the release of their “Pirates” trailer and the confirmation of the June 25th, 2013 release date, Capcom also unveiled the box art for the upcoming science-fiction thriller. Par for the course, mostly, but the close-up shot of a Jim Peyton whom is covered in snow and looks weathered sets a bit of the tone for the game itself.

Also revealed by Capcom are the numerous pre-order bonuses available at GameStop/EB Games, Amazon, and Best Buy. GameStop/EB Games will offer the  Freedom Fighter pack, Amazon will offer the Punisher pack, and Best Buy will offer the Assault Pack. All three of which are detailed below:

Freedom Fighter Pack (Gamestop + EB Games)
Grace Peyton — The woman behind the man. Beautiful but also tough and resilient, Grace keeps the family together whilst the earth falls into chaos and Jim is working millions of miles from home.
Phil Braddock — Braddock is the head of the NEVEC crew and runs the operations at Coronis base on E.D.N. III. He stays calm despite the extreme pressures of the mission and keeps his team focused.
Jenette Diaz, the Lost Contractor — Jim’s predecessor and an accomplished utility rig pilot who joined the Coronis crew on their maiden voyage to E.D.N. III. She mysteriously went missing a year and a half into their mission.
LP1 Gale Holden — Returning in his Lost Planet 1 look, Gale is the father of the main character of Lost Planet: Extreme Condition and a pivotal character in the Lost Planet universe.
Bonus character: HUNK – From the world of Resident Evil, HUNK is Umbrella Corporation’s most trusted hit man and leader of the Umbrella Security Service’s Alpha Team. If anyone can survive the brutally inhospitable conditions of E.D.N.III, he can.

Punisher Pack (Amazon)
Incinerator (Particle Thrower Variant) — This improved version delivers greater range and damage than its predecessor, but with less accuracy and a tendency to overheat rapidly.  The particle beam can set targets on fire.
NEVEC Punisher (Pulse Rifle) — A NEVEC military division pulse rifle that sends out bursts of fire at an extremely fast pace.
