Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has confirmed that FEAR 3 will be coming to the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Windows PC in Spring 2010.
“Gamers participate in single player or co-op modes as Point Man, a genetically enhanced super soldier originally introduced in FEAR, or they can play cooperatively as his conniving brother Paxton Fettel, whose incredible telekinetic power has given him life beyond the grave,” said Warner Brothers.
The game is developed by Day 1 Studios, developer of the original FEAR console games in collaboration with Monolith Studios. In addition, horror director, John Carpenter, and horror comic and script writer, Steve Niles, 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.
Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment’s President, Martin Tremblay, said, “Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is evolving the FEAR brand with top horror, co-op and first person shooter combat in FEAR 3. Monolith Productions has passed the torch to Day 1 Studios to create a quality, powerful game that stays true to the roots of the FEAR franchise but takes players to a heightened level of gameplay.”
“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 FEAR 3. Players can look forward to new features such as divergent co-op, an evolved cover system, and more scares in FEAR 3,” said Denny Thorley, Founder and President, Day 1 Studios.
