F.E.A.R. 3 Confirmed, John Carpenter Lends A Hand
It wasn't long ago when a European gaming publication spilled the beans on the third F.E.A.R. installment and now, it's official.
As reported by GameSpot, Warner Bros. Interactive has announced today that F.E.A.R. 3 will launch for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC this fall. In a break from tradition, primary development will be spearheaded by Day 1 studios, the team that worked on the PS3 and 360 ports of the original F.E.A.R.. Monolith, which was the developer for the first two titles, won't be involved, which may or may not prove skeptical to fans of the franchise. The good news is that this third entry is a true sequel; it picks up where the last adventure left off, so maybe you should snag F.E.A.R. 2 to prepare yourself... Furthermore, they're including a new "divergent co-op" mode that will let gamers take on the role of one of two characters: either Point Man, the genetically engineered super-soldier from the first title, or his brother, Paxton Fettel, who uses his fantastical telekinesis powers to his advantage. These are recognizable names, right?
Lastly, Warner has tapped horror film veteran John Carpenter to act as a consultant of sorts. This should help bring out the freaky nature of the game, as Carpenter is well known to scary movie aficionados; from "Halloween" to "They Live," he has been responsible for numerous frightening big-screen hits. Considering all this, our expectations are high for F.E.A.R. 3.
