The “Kill Big for Charity” program, which kicked off earlier this month, is a robust charity and community program which includes a donation to Music for Relief for each demo downloaded via Xbox LIVE® or PlayStation Network. Capcom has created a charity fund of $20,000 as a donation for the first one million Lost Planet 2 multiplayer demos downloaded on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 from March 31 through midnight PT May 5. If the demo surpasses the million mark across both platforms, an additional $5,000 will be donated when an extra 500,000 downloads is achieved. With the multiplayer demo now released wide to the public, Capcom is encouraging gamers to download the demo to help continue towards the goal of one million downloads.
