Lost Planet is a sci-fi action shooter set within the merciless frozen tundra of a hostile planet, humans struggle for survival as conflicts arise between man, the surrounding indigenous creatures and the monstrous beings that have invaded. Released in Thursday, SCEA has pulled the multiplayer demo "in order to address issues that have come to light." (thanks FiringSquad)

Combining a gripping single player campaign and intense multiplayer modes with support for up to 16 players online, Lost Planet: Extreme Condition is an epic gaming masterpiece. Enormous world maps unfold as players battle hostile creatures in blistering weather conditions across vast snow fields and blazing volcanic areas either on foot or in armed, robotic Vital Suits.

Lost Planet: Extreme Condition for the PS3 will release with a number of specific features not previously available in retail editions of the console version. These include 16 diverse multiplayer maps right out of the box and additional playable characters each with their own unique abilities.
