Lost Planet Map Packs On the Way

Having already revealed details regarding the release of a game patch next month, Capcom has now announced further downloadable support for its new 360 hit Lost Planet: Extreme Condition in the form of multiplayer map packs. Over the coming months, seven map packs are scheduled to be released, with the first pack scheduled to hit the Live Marketplace around March 9th for 400 Microsoft Points. Two maps will be offered in the debut pack, including a close-quarters battleground called Radar Field and a sprawling map of interconnected islands known as Island 902. In addition, the Battleground map originally exclusive to players who bought the Collector’s Edition will be released as a free download to all Lost Planet players.

“We’re committed to bringing new content to the thriving community of Lost Planet fans,” said Charles Bellfield, vice president, marketing, Capcom Entertainment, Inc. “The development team is steadily working on additional environments to provide players with new ways to enjoy the intense Lost Planet brand of action.”

For a taste of the multiplayer action to come with the first map pack, Capcom has released the following trailers showing off each new map:
