Lost Planet PC/360 updates

Free maps, patch next week.

Capcom is planning to reduce the cost of Lost Planet Map Pack #3 to nothing on Xbox Live Marketplace on 16th August - the same day that PC owners will be able to grab a new patch that adds a range of DirectX 10 enhancements.

On the PC front, the patch will introduce specialised geometry shaders designed to take better advantage of things like motion blur, depth-of-field and fur shading, along with PC Map Pack #2, which includes four maps from the second and third Xbox 360 packs - Battleground, Lost Technology, Ruins and Ice Drop.

Additionally, a patch that addresses unspecified connectivity issues for Xbox 360 owners will be released "in the next few weeks".
