The first Lost Planet was a solitary affair, but the sequel looks to be a far more team based experience. Details of the four player co-op featured in Lost Planet 2 are coming to light, and we like what we see. Check out this quote from OXM:
"Lost Planet 2 will put a huge emphasis on your responsibility to your team," says OXM. "Besides having you mind your own T-ENG reserves when the fighting gets rough, Capcom also plans to incorporate something called a 'Team Military Power Bar.' If you happen to die during a mission, you'll be able to immediately respawn at a data post - but your team's overall Military Power Bar will take a hit."
That sounds like a well integrated co-op mode, doesn't it? Perhaps more exciting was the story of a playthrough during OXM's time spent with the game. The tale involves a handheld missile launcher, a three story high boss monster, and blown out knees. I won't spoil the ending for you, check out the link yourself. Let's just say we are... hungry for the games release, and leave it at that!
