F.E.A.R Online announced; a free-to-play multiplayer shooter

Warner Bros. Games have announced that the FEAR series is to continue in a slightly different guise: as a free-to-play online multiplayer shooter. It is currently in development at Inplay Interactive, a Koren studio with history in the F2P market. 

“We are thrilled to present the next entry in one of the most popular horror franchises of the last decade,” said Tom Nichols, VP of PC Games, at FEAR Online’s publisher Aeria Games. “FEAR Online will bring back the tense, heart-pounding action that the series is known for and make it accessible to a huge online community of competitive players.”

FEAR Online will be made up of two key components: a team-based combat mode with ten maps and several different game types, including the Soul King mode from FEAR 3. There will also be a co-op mode with missions set during FEAR 2, supporting up to four players. 

There’s no word of a release date yet, but you can sign up at the beta application site if you want early access. 

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to attend the funeral of a superb, atmospheric horror series. I believe I’m already running about three years late for it. 

Cheers, VG247

Man, why can't they just give the series back to Monolith? Make a FEAR 4 retcon FEAR 3 and add a 4 player co-op mode if you want

its a single player IP first and foremost!
