    Has anyone heard anything about this game? I guess it's either a straight sequel to Lost Planet or something like a RTS(as with Halo Wars for instance), just stumbled upon it in the GAME Xbox360 preorder list.

    According to the game preorder details(which I know rarely gives anything solid to go by) it's due for release 22/02/08, I'm sure that's incorrect though due to lack of any game information.

    The preorder price looks good though, £24.99 delivered.

    A Capcom release schedule posted up at Neogaf indicates that the PS3 is set to receive Lost Planet Colonies exclusively while the Xbox 360 will get Black Cloud.
    But as zero has come forward about it,not even 1 picture,i doubt its due anytime soon.

    Is that right, so it's basically a repackaging with map packs in a similar vein to CoD3 Gold Edition?

    I think all the map packs are now free to download anyway, I might pick up the standard US region-free version 2nd hand from second spin this week(while they have free international postage promo), works out at around £12.50 delivered which seems a good price, just a bit unsure how many on my friends list own the game to get some fun online games going.

    Those achivements look horrendous. I hate it when developers throw in things like win 500 matches, kill a billion opponents etc. Absolutely no imagination at all:rolleyes:

    So it turns out to be a bit of a Lost Planet 1.2(as I don't even think it qualifies as a 1.5 TBH).

    Seems a strange decision not to make it backwards compatible with Extreme Condition online though, at least for EC's maps:confused:

    Shame they didn't at least include an online co-op mode, that might have been enough to sway me into buying.

    I just had a look at this on MP and thought it looked good. I got into Lost Planet after those that had bought it finished it, so never got to play online. I think it is a super game, so if it is going to be reasonably cheap then I'll get this.

    Gotta agree with you there Kop, another release day purchase here and I must say I was quite dissapointed with it. I only did about 5 levels, and the multiplayer was just crap.

    For me the game mechanic that was at first unique, just became an irritating bugbear and that ultimately lead to its sale on here.

    Lost Planet was one of the first demos I tried on the 360. It looked OK, but like Si said, the slow 'trudging' in the snow really spoiled it. Plus, I'd just got this other game called 'Cogs of Battle' or something :confused: that was much better.

    I watched the MP vid of this last night and thought it looked pretty cool. Didn't realise it was just a rehash of the old game.
