F.E.A.R. 3 Won't Terrify You Until 2011
And the parade of games scheduled for 2010 escaping into 2011 continues.
If you were hoping to get a healthy dose of FPS creepiness this fall, you'll be disappointed to learn that F.E.A.R. 3 has been delayed until 2011. Developed by Day 1 Studios (Fracture, MechAssault 2), this will be the third installment in the popular and critically acclaimed series, which saw the first title arrive back in 2005. The new entry will "continue the franchise's storyline" but will also add the benefit of a new "divergent co-op mode," where the player can choose one of two characters. You can either play as Point Man, a genetically engineered supersoldier, or his brother Paxton Fettel, who has telekinesis. Also, let's not forget that Warner has tapped horror film director John Carpenter ("Halloween," "Escape from New York," "They Live," etc.) to help with the writing. This series has always produced some effective and quality plots, so Carpenter's aid could really help to put F.E.A.R. 3 over the top.
But we won't know for sure until next year. No word on exactly when it will arrive in 2011, but we're hoping it avoids the already full first quarter.
