Warner Bros. has announced FEAR 3, revealing the official name as 'F3AR'. Which sounds stupid.
Warner Bros. Interactive has revealed via a Spanish games magazine (hosted on NeoGaf
) that it is working on a sequel to Monolith's scary slow-mo shooter series, FEAR
Images from the magazine include pictures a pregnant Alma, the evil lady psychic from the first two games, flanked by two unknown characters - one apparently a reanimated corpse, the other an angry man with a mullet.
was first released back in 2005 and the name technically has dots in it - F.E.A.R is supposed to be an acronym for First Encounter Assault and Recon. It was a silly idea back then and Warner has apparently embraced the idea for the third game in the series, going with the official title 'F3AR
That'd be 'First 3 Assaults and Recon', then? Doesn't matter, we're just going to call it FEAR 3
anyway in an attempt to discourage silly acronyms in computer games. We're not willing to end up with another S.T.A.L.K.E.R
any time soon.
There are no details released about the game just yet, but expect to see FEAR 3
feature lots of dark corridors and gorgeous slow motion gun fights, just like the previous games in the series.
