About This Game

The larger than life action of Lost Planet 2, comes to PC! Lost Planet 2 is the sequel to Lost Planet™: Extreme Condition, the landmark third-person shooter which debuted on Xbox 360 and went on to sell over 2.3 million units worldwide after its release. Lost Planet 2 offers deeper insight into the world of E.D.N III and the uncertain fate of future mankind.
Already acclaimed for its visual accomplishments from the console versions, Lost Planet 2 will define the 3D experience on the PC. Stunning environments will immerse the player in NVIDIA Vision Surround technology, and the rebalanced gameplay and streamlined control mechanics make Lost Planet 2 PC the ultimate Lost Planet experience.
A decade has passed since the events of the first game, and the face of E.D.N. III has changed dramatically. Terraforming efforts have been successful and the ice has begun to melt, giving way to lush tropical jungles and harsh unforgiving deserts. Mankind has engaged in a civil war to take control of the precious Thermal Energy that powers weapons and vehicles on E.D.N. III and resulted in a separation into various factions.
Players will control heroes from each faction across 6 interconnected episodes, viewing the war from the perspective of each, creating a truly unique interactive experience. With this concept, players will have the opportunity to engage in the story in a much more dynamic way as plot threads evolve from different players’ perspectives.
The intense and action-packed campaign mode comes with the ability to form teams of up to 4 players online. Beyond the deep single-player and co-op modes, Lost Planet 2 is loaded with extensive multiplayer modes allowing up to 16 players to compete online, each with their own customizable avatar.
No action game would be complete without an arsenal of weaponry, and Lost Planet 2 has a huge variety of hardware for players to unleash on unsuspecting enemies. Machine guns, shotguns, rocket launchers, lasers, sniper rifles, grenades and a host of other weapons are scattered across the game. The grappling hooks that made the gameplay in Lost Planet a true 3-D experience are back, allowing gamers to gain tactical advantage by moving to elevated locations quickly.
Lost Planet 2’s biggest weapons come on two legs: the heavily armed and armored robotic Vital Suits return in greater numbers and variety than the first game. There are VS that transform into other vehicles, hold up to three players and some that even take multiple players to operate.

Key Features:

  • Co-op action: Team up to battle the giant Akrid in explosive 4 player online co-operative play. Teamwork is the player’s key to victory as the team is dependent on each other to succeed and survive.
  • Massive scale of enemies: Players skill on the battlefield and ability to work as a team will be tested like never before against the giant Akrid. Players will utilize teamwork tactics, new weapons and a variety of vital suits (VS) to fight these larger-than-life bosses.
  • Beautiful massive environments: Capcom’s advanced graphics engine, MT Framework 2.0, and DirectX 11 support will bring the game to life with the next step in 3D fidelity and performance. See Lost Planet 2’s world through new eyes, with support for hardware tessellation and compute shader.
  • Deep level of character customization: Players will have hundreds of different ways to customize their look, nom de guerre, emotes, and weapons to truly help them define their character on the battlefield. A wide array of customizable abilities range from taking less damage, to running faster to operating data posts quicker
  • Rewards System: Players will receive rewards for assisting teammates and contributing to the team’s success
  • Multiplayer: Compete in 16-player multiplayer matches with nine different maps and 5 different game modes including Data Post Battle, Akrid Egg Battle, Fugitive, Elimination and Team Elimination. Additional maps will be available as downloadable content after the game’s release.
  • Exciting new VS features: Based on fan feedback, the team has implemented an unbelievable variety of Vital Suits and new ways to combat VS’s. The new VS system will have a powerful impact on the way the player takes to the war zone in Lost Planet 2.

The number one thing here that seems to drive people away from this is the GFWL.

If you have about 15-30 min and you have basic troubleshooting skills, it's not that hard and there are tons of guides and reviews stating the usual fixes for almost any error you might encounter.

If you want to talk about what was hard getting this to work, I had a cracked version back in the day and you had to use "Teknogods.dll" to get it going. You had to press F12 and wait for a voice to say "WORKING" then after you joined press F12 again and it would say "TRANSFER COMPLETE". Now imagine trying to coordinate that with 3 other random strangers. If anyone missed a beat or ever hit F12 an extra time, everyone would have to CTRL+ALT+DELETE and try again. Signing up for GFWL or troubleshooting your existing account with many guides to assist, is a cake walk.

I'll admit it would be great if you didn't have to mess around with the GFWL stuff, but do yourself a favor and give it a go. I ended up nabbing this when it was like 4-5$. What do you have to lose?

Also, Giant robots.

Dont let GFWL deter you from this gem. its awsome, althouhgt the controls are a bit odd.

Windows 10 users: you have to download Games for Windows Live form there store page, and then the game should boot up. it took a few tries and it will probibly need to update, but it works for me. Some people say its been crashing at cut seans but so far so good on my end.

The way you get itmes is kinda odd (and it seems like if your offline you dont get loot boxes but i culd be wrong) as it is a slot machine or random drop loot boxes. that can be a bit anoying, but it also means you can theoreticaly get everyhting by playing. all the old DLC/preorder content is also avalibule from the slot machine. most of it is in a more expnive version after you get all the lower itmes. the item codes to get them no longer seem to work, but the conent might be in the rare slot as mentioned.

It's a great game. Although the game didn't work or start on trying to run it. You need to Download Games For Windows Live to make it start. It needs to know your microsoft account to link up with xbox and all that ♥♥♥♥. But once you've gone through all the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t it works and runs fine. It's super fun to play too!

Bypassing GWFL wasn't to hard (I put clearer instructions in someone else's post and in my own comment of review).
I had to download a No-CD/Hacked/Cracked Launcher (Tried a Few)...then Close (X or Back Button) GFWL when ask to sign into in order to play (If I go to settings and stay for to long, the game Force Closes).
Clearly I couldn't write this review without buying it from Steam, but cause of the Cracked Launcher I get no minuties on playing the game so I had to remove it.


I lost my save file -doesn't matter-, but while I was playing it offline...I realize Lost Planet 2 can be described as Titanfall without First Person or Jetpacks...which is funny cause had the devs put a little RPG in Lost Planet and a Story then this wouldn't be so underrated.

I am already fustrated that GTA 5 is having a problem with Steam being offline...I don't need to pay or play games that I don't own yet...Companies need use some way of confirming that a game is purchase so Buyers aren't netted with pirates.

Pretty good game. Excellent single- and multiplayer with weapon and character customization which allows for varied gameplay. It has secrets hidden within it as well. In short, this game has a superb shooter-engine and allows for a lot of exploration and experimenting. Plays at around 70 fps on my GTX 770.

Get this game! It still has an active community.

I just hope Capcom adds some new content to this game and implements proper Steam-support to it.

easty to learn and challenging on harder difficulties

what i recommand:

If anyone ever tells you to play this game, they are wrong. This game is awful. The plot is terrible, theres literally no reason for you to care about anyone in this game, the aiming is clunky, the movement is INSANELY BAD, stun locks are a constant thing. for the money, you could buy ANY other game and have more fun. ANY OTHER GAME. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE LOOK ELSEWHERE

Still the game I remember playing on 360. As far as I know, co-op campaign still works fine but I can't seem to find any matches in terms of PvP multiplayer. Buy this game knowing this.

Honestly I ♥♥♥♥ing love this game but here are my experiences with this version

-Open game and it asks me to choose between 2 version
-I pick one and the launcher closes and I wait aout 2 minutes before I realise nothing is going to happen
-Try again
-Same thing
-Find out it's because it's trying to open GFWL but since I'm not ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥, I don't have that on my computer
-Download it
-Make an account
"Email already taken"
-Log into my account
"Wrong password"
-Change password
"New password cannot be old password
-of course
-open Lost planet again
"Log in"
"There's an error with your profile, CLICK HERE to solve
-Click it and it just leads me to my microsoft profile
-It pretty much just told me to figure it out myself
-Try to find the problem for atleast half an hour before I just restart the game and it works fine
-The game actually opens
-At this point I'm expecting more things to go wrong
-Oh hey look a that
"Need to update profile"
-Takes like 10 minutes
"Please check conection"
-Close it and realise that it just cancelled the update that i've already waited through
-My connection is about as strong as it can be
"Select profile"
-I can either choose the one that's totally blank or create a new one
-Choose the blank one out of hope
-Create new profile
-Use my old profile as new profile
-it autofills my password once I type in my email
-"Password Incorrect"
-"Wow you can't even do that right"
-At this point I'm ♥♥♥♥ing Plssed
-Delete password and type it in myself
"Need to update profile"
-Wait through the update again and this time it works
"New profile cannot be old profile"
-Delete the blank profile and start again
-Type everything in again
"Update Required"
-Wait through update
-Go downstairs and release the anger I've bottled up on punching bag
-Find out I can make an offline profile
-It's hidden in the fine print after you scroll down on the terms of service to make sure no one will ever find it
-Make one
-It's not like I only bought this game on steam instead of playing the version i already have on my xbox for multiplayer but I guess I'll just stick to singleplayer
-New game
-No space, please free up 24 KB in Drive C:
-There's over 2 free terabytes left in Drive C:
-Continue game without saving
-I'll figure it out later
-Select Campaign
-Quick match, custom match, host match
-Oh that's right there's no singleplayer
-Procede to throw my entire computer out of window

I give up

Once you get past all the GFWL crap, it works just fine. I enjoyed it just as much as I did years ago on the 360, even when playing solo with bots.

Is it the best game ever? Certainly not. But it’s one of those games that I’ll always remember and think back on fondly. It’s fun, plain and simple.

If you don't mind dealing with setting up Games For Windows Live, there is a very enjoyable game here. To get it setup for Windows 10 you just need to download the latest GFWL from http://www.xbox.com/en-US/LIVE/PC/DownloadClient, run it in compatability mode for Windows 7 and complete the installation, setup an account, start the game, download updates for GFWL a few times (requires closing the game), and then you should be good to go.

I am a Lost Planet fan and have been having fun with the game so far. Check out my review below or my other playthrough videos of the game if you want more info before deciding if it is for you.

Although Games For Windows Live is a barrier that one has to cross to enjoy this game, after you have it installed and created an account the game is as good as it was when released, and holds up well in terms of graphical quality. Player population is low but if you can get a group of friends it is good, and there is usally at least one person playing the game. I particularly enjoy the Vital Suits that one can pilot, but without a vehicle the combat is designed well enough so that a player could take down another that is piloting a VS. I used to play this on the PS3, so the lack of splitscreen is a shame, but the game is compatible with xbox controllers and probably playstation ones if you feel a difference between the two. Overall a good and solid shooter, with consistent progression across the campaign and multiplayer modes. Which is good because the rare souls I do find playing multiplayer tend to absolutely destroy me.

After you get through that ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t DRM that Microsoft made it's quite enjoyable , the cutscenes remind me of older Metal Gears and the COOP is working so that's a plus.
