Alma-1920x1080

Do you remember F.E.A.R? The first game in the series was an awesome mix of shooter and scare. The second one dialled up the action, but the tension seemed to be a lot less (for me at least). Come to think of it now, I really have no idea why I never played the third. I quite enjoyed playing the first two, even if the second wasn’t nearly as good as the first. Are you a fan of the series? Get ready for F.E.A.R Online – it arrives on Steam next month.

Wait, what? Are you in the same boat as me? I had no idea this game even existed, let alone that it was being released in October. From what I can tell, the story seems to be set just after the events of the first, and possibly running simultaneously to the second. Here’s what you can expect (Gamezone via F.E.A.R Online):

The F.E.A.R. Never Ends! – Immerse yourself once more in the horrific story of Alma Wade as you search for the reasons behind her destructive powers. Battle against both grotesque monsters and rival players as you unravel a terrifying mystery.

Cooperative Story Mode – Battle through horror-filled scenes and take down the creatures you encounter with a group of friends. Discover all-new environments, weapons, and enemies all wrapped up in a terrifying experience.

Become the Soul King – Play as a ghost with limitless potential in Soul King mode! Gain access to new abilities by possessing your enemies and hunt for fresh souls in an all out assault against other players.

Fearsome Fast-paced Multiplayer – Choose from over ten different PvP maps and shoot it out against both rival players and horrifying deadly monsters. Only the strongest will survive the nightmarish combat and live to F.E.A.R. another day.

I don’t care what anybody says… the first F.E.A.R had some of the finest and funnest multiplayer I have ever played! I just hope this latest franchise entry captures it in a similar light. Also, co-op story mode sounds like fun, I just hope it actually is. Know what the best part is? It will be free to play. I’m just not entirely sure what sort of transactions or pay walls the game will have.

Defence of the Ancients? More like Defence of the cabbages! Have you seen my head? I look like a Merino Sheep on pole. NO SHANGE only SHAPPIES! :D

  • Umar

    This makes me sad…I loved FEAR but it devolved into a shell of its former glory

    • Hammersteyn

      Just like Dead Space and Resident Evil.

      • Umar

        Couldn’t agree more

      • JJ the Reus

        Yes. Exactly

    • Johan du Preez

      Yup one of my favourite games when i saw online i knew here comes a fail

    • Is it just me or does it still look like FEAR 2. Disappointing from a game that was top class at the time.

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Fear 3 is a good shooter, but not very scary – although it does have some creepy moments. Riding the mech still makes you feel like a badass.

    1 still had the best scares. That stupid ladder taught me I still had good fear-born reflexes.

    • Hammersteyn

      Playing co-op is fun, especially when controlling his brother.

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        Never played any of them co-op.

    • JJ the Reus

      Haha.
      That ladder.

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        I remember it very well.

        My reaction was pretty much… happily climbing down the ladder, turn leftAAAAARRRRRRRGGGGHHHHHHHHBOOMHEADSHOTWTF!…. hey, that was a pretty good shot O_O

    • hairyknees

      I had all but erased that ladder from my memory. I HOPE YOU’RE HAPPY!

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        By telling me I brought back disturbing memories best left forgotten you’ve made me the happiest man alive!

        • hairyknees

          WELL AT LEAST ONE OF US IS A WINNER THEN?????

  • Hammersteyn

    Well it’s F2P so no harm in checking it out at least.

  • Anon A Mouse

    PSA: Kalahari has the XBox One for R5 999.00 for today only. No game though.

  • JJ the Reus

    First FEAR was GREAT
    Second FEAR was tedious
    Third FEAR I haven’t even gotten around to because of the second

  • Dylan Heunis

    Fear 3 was on sale for $5 last week so i picked it up. One more interval to go.

    • JJ the Reus

      I got 1,2 and 3 on Humble Bundle for $5 beginning of the year sometime. Was well worth it, even just for 1.

  • alcatraz5953

    Rather excited for this…

  • Ross Woofels Mason

    F.E.A.R 1 was an awesome game, 2 & 3 where alright but nothing like. This I will try and give a go though could be fun.

    • JJ the Reus

      Extraction Point and Perseus Mandate were also quite a bit of fun.

      • Johan du Preez

        Yup the fear expansions was actually much more scarier than the original. They lost the plost with Fear 2 and 3

        • JJ the Reus

          Agreed. Extraction Point was one scary beehaatch
