WARNER BROS. INTERACTIVE ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES F.E.A.R. 3
DIVERGENT CO-OP EVOLVES THE HORROR FIRST-PERSON SHOOTER FRANCHISE WITH CONSULTATION FROM HORROR MASTERMINDS JOHN CARPENTER AND STEVE NILES
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announces F.E.A.R. 3, a heart-pounding paranormal horror first-person shooter unleashing intense combat, compelling narrative and co-op play that evolves the franchise. F.E.A.R. 3 is set to release on PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows™ PC in autumn 2010.
Alma returns in F.E.A.R. 3 but this time her sons Point Man and Paxton Fettel introduce divergent co-op, giving players distinctly different abilities affecting their own play as well as the experience of their co-op partner. Gamers participate in single player or co-op modes as Point Man, a genetically enhanced super soldier originally introduced in F.E.A.R., or they can play cooperatively as his conniving brother Paxton Fettel, whose incredible telekinetic power has given him life beyond the grave. The game is developed by Day 1 Studios, developer of the original F.E.A.R. console games in collaboration with Monolith Studios.
“Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is evolving the F.E.A.R. brand with top horror, co-op and first person shooter combat in F.E.A.R. 3,” said Martin Tremblay, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “Monolith Productions has passed the torch to Day 1 Studios to create a quality, powerful game that stays true to the roots of the F.E.A.R. franchise but takes players to a heightened level of gameplay.”
To further ensure extreme terror in F.E.A.R. 3, legendary horror director John Carpenter (Halloween, Village of the Damned) and critically acclaimed horror comic and script writer Steve Niles (30 Days of Night) have provided consultation to enhance several of the game’s frightening aspects. Steve Niles co-wrote the game script with the development team and John Carpenter provided his expertise in crafting the in-game cinematics.
“After working closely with Monolith, Day 1 is honoured to bring the next iteration of the F.E.A.R. franchise to gamers with key elements of the past games yet providing fresh combat and horror experiences in F.E.A.R. 3,” said Denny Thorley, Founder and President, Day 1 Studios. “Players can look forward to new features such as divergent co-op, an evolved cover system, and more scares in F.E.A.R. 3.”

I can't really wrap my head around being dismissive of indie games. That's a pretty broad label. (1 Hour ago)
put and end to corridor/cinematic/c utscene/qte/playforyousoyouwon'tmissathi ousoyouwon'tmissathing ng experiences, and start to see more games like Prey/BotW and the sort. Nuts&Bolts is an awesome game, as well. We need N&B2 (3 Hours ago)
Prey, just reminded me when i used to lure headcrabs/zombies in Half-Life 1 (1%Hp/Suit), to lasers and eletrick shock cables to zap'em withou loss of ammo. It's like we needed a whole generation to (3 Hours ago)
Stranger Things is such a amazing show! Just finished season 2, episode 7 (I won't post spoilers). (3 Hours ago)
I mean, didn't you just buy an X to play the same games with better visuals? Your stance doesn't really seem very consistent tbh. (3 Hours ago)
If you have no Interest in either of those things your only option is to move onto some other hobby. Because you're not going to see any mainstream Dev making something truly unique...ever. (3 Hours ago)
@droezelke: whether I sound like a snob or not. It's the truth. The industry is all about playing it safe now. If your after original experiences you have 2 options. Indie or VR (usually also indie) (3 Hours ago)
