We may traverse barren, icy wastelands in video games, but do we ever stop to consider what our survival rate would be if it were real life? In those extreme, freezing, unforgiving conditions? Well now, you can find out.
The temperature on E.D.N. III – Lost Planet 3‘s setting – is a lethal minus-120 degrees Celsius…the frozen planet can easily become a mass grave-site, but not if Jim Peyton has anything to say about it. The latest video from NEVEC, viewable directly below, gives a chilling account of the human body’s reactions to severe cold, both mental and physical. When I say chilling…that’s not just a pun, I mean it! It explains, step by step, what happens internally when your body temperature drops below the normal 37 degrees celcius. Black, deadened extremities and rupturing eyeballs in their sockets…no thank you! Trip to Antarctica cancelled!
