Capcom has announced a host of pre-order incentives for the European release of Lost Planet 2 on May 18 for Xbox 360 and PS3. Choose from multiplayer maps, your very own Akrid or an exclusive t-shirt.

Collectible figure – This pre-order offers a limited edition figurine of one of the gigantic Akrid that players will encounter in Lost Planet 2.

T-shirt – With an exclusive design not available anywhere else those gamers choosing this pre-order will own a truly unique piece of Lost Planet 2 merchandise.

Multiplayer maps - Gamers opting for this pre-order will be able to download two new maps on which they can engage in 16 player multiplayer battles

Helix - The underwater NEVEC mining facility is set over several layers full of twisted corridors. Swim between the layers, dive to the bottom to change your point of attack or launch yourself in an instant to the upper levels using the Aqua Catapults.

Back to the Island - The shady atoll of Island 902 is broken into wide open spaces and compact interiors. Choose your battlefield from the beaches to the battered carrier, or explore a new dimension in the underwater area. Control the bridge to dominate the map, but beware as you are vulnerable to attacks from all sides.

Details of which retailers will be running each specific pre-order campaign will be confirmed shortly.

Capcom has also announced that Lost Planet 2 will offer split-screen gameplay in both the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game, enabling players to battle alongside a friend in the same room.
