Lost Planet PC demo out May 15

Capcom giving PC gamers a taste of its shooter - and a chance check out visual enhancements made

Should news of Capcom brining its Xbox 360 shooter Lost Planet: Extreme Condition to PC tweaked your interest, then you'll want to mark May 15 in your diaries - the company is releasing a demo of the PC version of the game on that date.

Capcom's said the demo features DirectX 10 support (along with DirectX 9 obviously), and it's previously made a song and dance about the visual improvements made for the PC version of the game - it features "enhanced graphics and effects to optimise the realistic presentation and explosive action in the game, including better shadows and more detailed textures, as well as higher monitor resolutions."

We're currently awaiting further details on the demo - like, what the content is.

Lost Planet is a full-on action blaster where players battle aggressors in adverse environments.
