F.E.A.R. 3 Announced For This Fall 53

Posted by Soulskill
from the creepy-psychic-girls-need-employment-too dept.
Warner Bros. has announced that the third game in the F.E.A.R. saga is in production and planned for release this fall. Unlike the first two games, F.E.A.R. 3 will not be developed by Monolith Productions, but by Day 1 Studios, who ported the original F.E.A.R. to the Xbox 360 and PS3. The new game is being developed for those two consoles and for Windows. "Day One is the studio behind MechAssault, MechAssault 2, and Fracture, so they've got all the mech and shooter experience one could hope for, but what about horror? Publisher Warner Bros. Interactive has that covered as well, with famed horror director John Carpenter (Halloween, The Thing) and 30 Days of Night writer Steve Niles acting as consultants to enhance the game's scary bits. Alma returns for the third game, but her sons, Point Man and Paxton Fettel, are the stars, both featuring unique powers to help create what the developer is calling divergent co-op, where the characters' powers affect each player's game, and not just their own."

    Finally a game I won't be able to play natively on Linux. I thought this day would never come.

    Wait for the DRM announcement. You'll need to be internet connected and supply a finger, eyeball, testicle or ovary when the game starts. "It's unfortunate that game piracy has driven us to these methods" said lead developer Richard Head. "But the game is fantastic and well worth it" as he proceeded to remove his own gonad and place it in the prototype dongle. "And once you're done identifying yourself, you're free to dispose of your body part any way you see fit. I'm having mine with sauce". When asked what happens when you run out of body parts Richard responded "That's the beauty of it. The game is designed so that by the time the victim...erm customer...has gone as far as removing their testicles, we have all their cash"

    Oh the HORROR!!!!

    Oh, sure, get your excuses ready for not having the 'nads to play Fear 3... "Umm, no thanks, I've already played twice..."

    The lead developer on that was Richard Head? I bet the guy in charge of the DRM scheme is Richard Gazinya.
