Capcom, publisher for the upcoming third installment into the Lost Planet franchise, has today released some new details, along with a gameplay trailer, for the multiplayer features of the game.

According to Capcom, Lost Planet 4 will feature four multiplayer modes across six maps, but for the time being only two of these multiplayer modes have been revealed:

Scenario Mode sets each team a series of either offensive or defensive challenges and mixes them up with the extreme and unpredictable conditions of E.D.N. III. Players can compete in both third person on-foot action and in first person combat using the futuristic Vital Suits, making this a dynamic gameplay experience.

Akrid Survival sees two teams of three players compete independently of each other in a series of encounters against waves of hostile Akrid before the teams go head to head in a final PvP elimination round.

Details on the additional multiplayer modes will most likely be revealed in the future, for the time being though Lost Planet 3 is currently expected to be released onto the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in August 2013.
