Capcom Unveils Charity Campaign For Lost Planet 2
Don't plan on downloading the upcoming multiplayer demo for Lost Planet 2? What's the matter; don't you want to help out a charity?
Capcom has announced a new campaign called "Kill Big for Charity." It may have an odd name but nevertheless, it kicks off this week when the demo becomes available, and provided enough people jump on board, Capcom will donate to the Music for Relief fund. "Kill Big for Charity" will also feature a celebrity/charity tournament at the launch party and a community contest, brought to you by Capcom Unity. The biggest fans will get a spot in that celeb tournament. As for the charity, Music for Relief is a non-profit organization "dedicated to providing aid to victims of natural disasters and the prevention of such disasters." Capcom will donate $20,000 for the first one million downloads of the LP demo (from March 31 through May 5), and they'll toss in another $5,000 when and if the demo reaches 1.5 million downloads. To learn more about the initiative, go ahead and visit www.lostplanetcommunity.com.
Furthermore, Capcom will be throwing a pre-launch party for the game on May 6 in Los Angeles. You can sign up as a guest (it's first come, first served) at the Capcom Unity page and that's when the celebrity tournament will take place. If you want to be a part of it, you'll have to compete with other community members to get a seat in the tournament. Remember that Lost Planet 2 will be on store shelves on May 11, so prepare for massive mech combat!
