New details emerge for Lost on PS3

If you’re planning to buy Lost Season 3 on DVD, you’ll be in for a pleasant surprise. Included with this box set is a special features section with some concept art designs from the upcoming PlayStation 3 title itself.

Lost, which is scheduled for a late February release, will carry a lot of the cast from the first three seasons. Though there is no video footage or gameplay available on the DVD, you will be able to make out certain details about the title. We are lead to believe that you will be taking over a male character with a name that is currently not known. PSU is hoping Ubisoft will allow you to create your own character and name, but we’ll have to wait for more info before we can factually state that.

Much like the TV Show, you’ll be a survivor of Oceanic Flight 815 and you’ll have lost the majority if not all of your memories. As you progress through the game, memories will slowly come back to you. During this progression is when you’ll have the opportunity to come across previous cast members of the hit show. Even though you will be able to view past show events, you will more than likely not be able to take part in them as you have been given your own past to remember.

You’ll be given the opportunity to venture to a lot of the famous locations that were made known through television. You’ll comb beaches, explore the Black Rock, scale caverns, and even meet up with the infamous computer that is known to save the world.

Obviously, the gameplay cannot be determined just from the concept art provided; however, IGN believes it will take the form of an adventure game with some puzzles mixed in. We figure this will be a great genre for Lost to fit into and hope it takes its feet and plants them in a similar mold to Tomb Raider or even Uncharted.
