Lost Planet: Extreme Condition is the first game demo that takes advantage of DirectX 10-compatible graphics processors.
With the close collaboration with nVidia, Capcom brings the hit Xbox 360 action shooter to the PC, providing technical expertise and GeForce 8 Series graphics processing units (GPUs) for development and testing. Lost Planet is a part of nVidia's The Way Its Meant To Be Played program.
Lost Planet will feature Extreme High Definition (XHD) support with up to 2560x1600 resolution, higher resolution special effects, and improved lighting and shadows.
nVidia and Capcom are conducting extensive testing to ensure maximum compatibility and stability when gamers play Lost Planet on nVidiaAGeForce GPUs.
The final version of the game is scheduled for release on June 26th, 2007.
Microsoft DirectX 10 is included with Microsoft Windows Vista and delivers unparalleled levels of graphics realism and film-quality effects for games. DirectX 10 games running on GeForce 8-series GPUs will deliver rich, realistic scenes, increased character detail and shadow effects, and more lifelike animations.
