Planet JX-993.a is cold. Very cold. 

Creatures have developed specialized organs allowing them to capture thermodynamic energy. It is a flat food-chain. Creatures attack living beings, robots, gear and vehicles to horde their thermal energy. It's unknown how long creatures can store energy.

What is below the surface?
Ice locked plants?

These creatures should have infravision. Perhaps they should have macro-infravision, the ability to see signatures very far away.

What brings people to this yazirian-forsaken planet?

A cold corporate war rages above and below the ice. One such corporation has developed tech to model the native creatures allowing the suit to capture thermal energy and store it in caches. Once the caches are depleted you'll freeze to death.
