F.E.A.R. Online has been announced and it’s coming on October 17th for the PC. The game will be available on Steam once it launches, but before that you might want to check out the game’s Beta testing phase, which starts on October 8th. F.E.A.R. Online will be a free-to-play title and there is no news on whether or not it will feature microtransactions so sor now we’ll assume that it doesn’t. What it does have however is various features and game modes that will make it stand out from the crowd. You can check out some of the key features below.
- Cooperative Story Mode: Battle through horror-filled scenes and take down the creatures you encounter with a group of friends. Discover all-new environments, weapons, and enemies all wrapped up in a terrifying experience.
- Fearsome Fast-paced Multiplayer: Choose from over ten different PvP maps and shoot it out against both rival players and horrifying deadly monsters. Only the strongest will survive the nightmarish combat and live to F.E.A.R. another day.
- Satiate your Blood Lust: Add a twist to the classic team versus team death match by transforming into beasts! Engage in combat to fill your transformation gauge. As soon as it reaches the maximum, you will be able to transform into a blood thirsty beast!
- Become the Soul King: Play as a ghost with limitless potential in Soul King mode! Gain access to new abilities by possessing your enemies and hunt for fresh souls in an all out assault against other players.
It’s hard to say if F.E.A.R. Online will end up becoming successful seeing as how there are already plenty of free-to-play shooters out there, but it’s definitely worth looking into if you love the series. In case you are interested, you can sign up for the upcoming Beta here.
