Lost Planet 2’s PC ship date announced, benchmark preview released

Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuugs! Big buuuuuuuuuuuugs! PC bugs that aren’t actual PC bugs but bugs that want to kill you buuuuuuuuugs!

Ahem – sorry about that.

Capcom has announced that Lost Planet 2 will be shipping to PCs on October 15. Featuring DirectX 11 and DirectX 9 support, Lost Planet 2 will not only support DX11 features like smoke with “lifelike volume and depth, water surfaces react realistically to player interaction and bullets” and more detailed bosses, but also support for NVIDIA 3D Vision and 3D Vision Surround technologies.

To see if your rig is up to snuff, or to see just how good you can get it to look, Capcom and NVIDIA have released a preview of Lost Planet 2 that contains both a gameplay test and DirectX 11 benchmark mode.

The 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.
