The next chapter in the F.E.A.R. horror first-person shooter series has been revealed. Publisher Aeria Games today announced F.E.A.R. Online, an all-new free-to-play shooter in development at Korean studio Inplay Interactive.

The game is said to boast "hardcore multiplayer shooting action" while continuing the story of Alma Wade. It includes "several" team combat modes spanning more than 10 maps.

F.E.A.R. Online also features cooperative missions that will shed light on the "terrifying occurrences" surrounding the F.E.A.R. team in parallel to the events of F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin. The co-op missions support up to four players.

Gamers interested in trying out the game can sign up for the closed beta today at the F.E.A.R. Online website.

F.E.A.R. Combat was pretty damn fun, hopefully this will be also good.

The first FEAR online multi-player was really fun. Is this going to be anything like that?

@Jacob idk what you are on about, but the original F.E.A.R. did have subtitles. And the 1st one was WAY MORE scary than the 2nd one(which was good, but no great like the 1st).

One of my favorite game series of all time ^^ So naturally I'm happy with the news.. but my love for F.E.A.R doesn't blind the obvious decline the games suffered since the original.


Let's hope this is the game I've wanted for a while :D

Think this is a joke by the developers to scare us. Right?

They should've just rebooted FEAR. I don't know what else they could do after FEAR 3, though i'm in the minority when it comes to the series. While I thought the first one was the scariest and better one story wise, I liked the other two for the satisfying gameplay and environments. Though I can see why people have a problem with that. They weren't too scary after the first.

Korean studio? So I believe it's not an FPS anymore. It'll be more like FEAR MMO.

That's how you kill a promising Franchise. You make the 3rd one awful and also make it a Free to Play. Speaking of a third game being awful. Is Dead Space up next? =_=

I'm not necessarily interested in playing this, it just doesn't sound appealing to me, but I do want to see what the game looks like when I can on YouTube.

The first game was excellent.  The add-ons for it were OK, but nothing special, but cool if you liked the game.  FEAR 2 should never have happened and same with 3.  So, I think I'll pass.

Free to play + Korean studio...what could possibly go wrong?

The first one was okay, but it really needed subtitles. I swear, a lot of the ambiguity comes from the lack of subtitles. Then there's the PS3 port.

I'm too scared to play horrors. Hopefully F2P means, If you want the horror element, you have to buy DLC =D

I absolutely adored the first F.E.A.R. and to me it is one of the finest FPS's ever developed. Everything after that is just a let down. Just let this franchise rest!

I just hope it will be more based on the Gameplay of F.E.A.R. 1 & 2 and not that goddamn awful abomination that 3 was

F.E.A.R. 1 was the gem of the series. Everything after ruined the original's frenetic and tactical combat.
