Capcom has confirmed that another round of updates for both the PC and Xbox 360 versions of Lost Planet: Extreme Condition are getting ready for release on August 16th.

On that date, PC Lost Planet players will be getting an automatic patch download adding in new DX 10 enhancements to improve depth of field, motion blur and fur shading effects, and a four-option chat system for communicating with others in the lobby, during gameplay and on the result screen. PC Map Pack #2 will also be made available on the 16th, offering four new maps (Battleground, Lost Technology, Ruins and Ice Drop) as a free 400 MB download.

For the 360 Lost Planet community, the four maps listed above as part of PC Map Pack #2 will be made available for free as Xbox 360 Map Pack #3 on the Xbox Live Marketplace. The previously announced “patch addressing connectivity issues” for the Xbox 360 version, which as of the last series of game updates was supposed to have been released by the end of last month, is now scheduled to come sometime “in the next few weeks.”
