Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announces F.E.A.R. 3 for Xbox, PS3 & Windows


MUMBAI: Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has announced F.E.A.R. 3, a paranormal horror first person shooter unleashing intense combat, compelling narrative and co-op play that evolves the franchise.

F.E.A.R. 3 is set to release on Microsoft’s Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system, PlayStation3 and Windows PC in fall 2010.

The game is developed by Day 1 Studios, developer of the original F.E.A.R. console games in collaboration with Monolith Studios.

“Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is evolving the F.E.A.R. brand with top horror, co-op and first person shooter combat in F.E.A.R. 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 F.E.A.R. franchise but takes players to a heightened level of gameplay,” said Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment president Martin Tremblay.

To further ensure extreme terror in F.E.A.R. 3, legendary 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.

“After working closely with Monolith, Day 1 is honored 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 F.E.A.R. 3. Players can look forward to new features such as divergent co-op, an evolved cover system, and more scares in F.E.A.R. 3,” said Day 1 Studios founder and president Denny Thorley.
