Over on Capcom’s Unity blog there they revealed some of the details for the multiplayer mode for Lost Planet 2.
Lost Planet 2 will allow for up to 16 players online. Capcom has added customization options to allow yourself to differentiate from other players. A reward system is in place for those who assist team mates or contribute to their team and there are new Vital Suits to use along with new ways to combat them.
Lost Planet 2 is coming out early 2010 in North America.
