New Lost Planet PC and 360 Patch Details

Capcom has released word today regarding new game patches and updates set to be released this month for both the PC and Xbox 360 versions of Lost Planet: Extreme Condition.

On July 20th, an automatic download patch introducing a number of cool new features will be released for the PC version of Lost Planet. The patch will add three new playable characters — Frank West from Dead Rising, the character Joe from the Lost Planet story campaign, and Mega Man! — new camera view options such as Resident Evil 4-style and Wide views, a list of connected players feature for the online multiplayer mode, and a movie mode for watching the game’s story sequences. Map Pack #1 for the PC version will also be available for free as of July 20th. The 400 MB pack will come with four maps, including Radar Field, Island 902, Hive Complex, and Trial Point.

For Xbox 360 Lost Planet players, the four maps from PC Map Pack #1 will be made available for free download from the Xbox Live Marketplace on the 20th as well. A patch addressing certain connectivity issues is also on tap by the end of the month, but no specific date has been announced as of yet.
