Lost Planet 2 Comes to PC beginning October 15

Post by Apoptosis » Mon Aug 16, 2010 9:14 am

The gigantic Akrid, epic environments, and heavily-armoured vital suits of Lost Planet 2 come to PCs beginning October 15!

Featuring support for DirectX® 11 and DirectX 9, Lost Planet 2 delivers its Akrid-infested world in even greater detail. Through DirectX® 11 features, smoke will have lifelike volume and depth, water surfaces react realistically to player interaction and bullets, and level bosses are rendered with more detail than ever before. Lost Planet 2 will also feature support for NVIDIA® 3D Vision™ and 3D Vision™ Surround technologies (wireless 3D Vision glasses sold separately) bringing the on-screen action to a whole new dimension.

Beginning today, Capcom and NVIDIA have released a preview of Lost Planet 2. Containing both a gameplay test and Direct® X 11 benchmark mode, this application allows gamers to test their PCs to ensure they get the optimum Lost Planet 2 experience.

The Lost Planet 2 preview includes:

Test A
The primary purpose of Test A is to give an indication of typical game play performance of the PC running Lost Planet 2. (i.e. if you can run Mode A smoothly, the game will be playable at a similar condition). In this test, the character’s motion is randomized to give a slightly different outcome each time.


Test B
The primary purpose of Test B is to push the PC to its limits and to evaluate the maximum performance of the PC. It utilizes many functions of Direct X11 resulting in a very performance-orientated, very demanding benchmark mode.

Jep, just the 5870, but though just below 30 it looks quite playable.
Without AA I get: Test A 39,0 fps and Test B 37,3 fps.
