Forget all of those rumors about Ubisoft’s Lost game being shelved, word came today that the closely guarded game will finally make its first live appearance at the San Diego Comic Con Lost panel later this month.   Besides giving fans a peek at the elusive game, the Lost creators and cast will be on hand to discuss the upcoming season three Dvd box set, season four of Lost, and yes, even the much anticipated series finale.

Here is what we know about the Lost game.  Even though it is based on the Crytek engine popularized by the first person shooter “Far Cry,” the Lost video game is not a shooter.  There may be some limited gun play scattered throughout the game, but the idea is to capture the feel of solving the islands mysteries.

The game is based on material sanctioned by Lost creators Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, but written by Dawn Kelly who was a writer’s assitant at Lost labs and co-wrote the episode “Maternity Leave.”  The game is rumored to be a self-contained story that does not relate to the event of the series.

The preview of the Season Three DVD set will focus mostly on the extras, naturally. So we will finally know why it is dubbed “The Unexplored Edition.”  According to the Comic-Con official schedule, some chunks from the DVD sets extras may be shown to the attending audience.

Talk of season four is where fans will really glow.  Typically, the Lost crew has been pretty revealing when it comes to talking about the forthcoming season.  Expect lots of vague info and perhaps some questions as to how the chronological aspects of the season are going to play.

Of course, the crowning moment comes at the end of the panel when the Lost crew takes questions from the audience.  This can often be an unpredictable time given Lost fans’ outspoken natures.

The Lost Season 4 panel will take place on Thursday, July 26 at 5pm in Ballroom 20, at the San Diego Comic-Con.
