The popular horror-themed first-person shooter series FEAR is back, but now it’s going free-to-play. Aeria Games has announced FEAR Online, a new online, free-to-play version of Monolith’s horror FPS series. FEAR Online will be a singleplayer aspect of the game. If you know the game, you are probably sold already.
The game will be developed by Inplay Interactive and will be available for Windows. It will feature multiple team-based combat modes with ten different maps. Teams will consist of up to four players and will take on different kinds of enemies. The game will also bring back the popular Soul King mode found in FEAR 3, where you can “possess enemies for new abilities and collect more fallen souls than their opponents.”
The game will continue from the storyline following Alma Wade and focus on the FEAR elite team and the Armacham Technology Corporation.
