There’s a solid chance F.E.A.R. 4 won’t be coming anytime soon, but at least we’re getting the next best thing in F.E.A.R. Online — the first free-to-play entry in the series that’s set after the events in Project Origin.
I’m ashamed to admit that while I was accepted into the alpha — with the idea of sharing my thoughts on it with all of you — I never actually got around to playing it. I suppose it’s for the best, since the game is scheduled to return next week with brand new content, including a new scenario, redesigned crafting system, bug fixes and “many other features” they’d rather we discover on our own.
When F.E.A.R. Online releases in full, it will feature a campaign that supports co-op with up to four players and a competitive multiplayer mode spread across ten unique maps.
If all that sounds like a bloody good time, you can sign up for the beta here.
