A serious must-have title for me. So instead of picking up the regular F.E.A.R. for the Xbox 360. I can pick up F.E.A.R. Files and have the complete package. Nice package!!
The second F.E.A.R. expansion will tell a parallel story to the events in the first game.
F.E.A.R. Perseus Mandate is the second expansion pack to 2005's creepy and atmospheric first-person shooter. As such, you can expect plenty of battles against cutthroat soldiers as well as encounters with paranormal phenomenon. However, Perseus Mandate won't continue the story of the First Encounter and Assault Recon's point man. After all, the rather grim ending of the first expansion, Extraction Point, would make that difficult. So Perseus Mandate will take place from the perspective of a second F.E.A.R. sent in to investigate a parallel storyline that takes place during the events of the first two games.
This new F.E.A.R. team has its own point man, with many of the same powers and abilities of the character in the original game. However, the new guy is not related to Alma, the scary little girl with unimaginable psychic powers. Not being related could be a very big problem, as she won't have any reason not to hold back on you. However, she's not the only thing you have to worry about. There's also a group of mercenaries trying to steal the secrets of the Armacham Technology Corporation, secrets that you're also trying to recover to discover what's really going on.
Much of Perseus Mandate will take place under the city of Auburn, as you delve into underground levels and facilities. The expansion will feature larger battles, along with tiered combat that takes place on multiple levels. The artificial intelligence has been enhanced to be more aggressive on the trigger, and it's also a bit smarter, which is impressive since the original F.E.A.R. featured impressive AI. There are new weapons, like a grenade launcher that fires rounds packed with nails. They explode and shred anyone caught in the blast. There's also a new assault rifle with an infrared scope that can cut through the clouds of dust and gunsmoke.
You're going to need all of these new toys to deal with the new threats. In addition to the mercenaries, known as nightcrawlers, there are new paranormal threats, such as shades, spirits that come out of the floor and grab you. We saw sequences that are packed with jump-out-of-your-seat moments, too.
Perseus Mandate will be released for the PC, but it will also ship in a special Xbox 360 version called F.E.A.R. Files. This will be a compilation that packages F.E.A.R. for the Xbox 360 along with Extraction Point and Perseus Mandate, the first time both expansions will appear on that console. In addition, Perseus Mandate and F.E.A.R. Files will introduce new multiplayer modes and maps. Details on those have yet to be revealed, but this looks like a solid expansion. Both the Perseus Mandate and F.E.A.R. Files are out at the end of October, right around Halloween.
Hey guys Do i need The Fear Extraction point installed to play this Perseus mandate...?? help needed
Is it true that I can't get Fear: Extraction Point unless I have the full first game? That would really stink because after I beat the game I deleted it and lost the disk.
By the time this comes out, Bioshock, Mass Effect, Halo 3, etc. will be out already and I won't have time to play this. Also, it will cost 60 bucks or more for sure. I am either going to buy the 30 buck version already out for the 360 @ Best Buy or I won't get to play this great game anytime soon.
The game looks awsome. But if he is not related to Alma than where did he get his ability. Anyway it souds like the F.E.A.R. I know and love.
F.E.A.R. is my favourite game for the 360 so I can't wait for F.E.A.R files. The laser looks extremely awesome and so do the new weapons for perseus mandate. This is one of my top games for this year.
ok so.... will this be given a free multiplayer version? i would be interested in buying it, but then that would mean that i would need to purchase the original too....
Cant wait...luckily, you get to play as the original F.E.A.R Point-Man in F.E.A.R 2, it will supposedly focus more on the main character and Alma...anyway, this one looks awesome so far, cant wait for the Grenade Launcher, the new assault rifle looks kickass as well :)
Too bad this isn't from the original development company Monolith. .. I hope they don't mess it up cause i liked the Fear gameplay
i wonder if their gonna bring the mini-gun, laser, and auto turret into their multilayer, that would be great...
So does this mean those of us that bought fear the first time round on 360 could end up with duplicate achievements if we play through it again on fear files?
Yes finally something added to the multiplayer game. I skipped Extraction Point as I play only the multiplayer, so I hope this expansion won't disappoint me :)
Dam i wish they would release the expansion over xbox live like with oblivion. I dont wanna have to buy fear again just to get the other expansions!
Awesome! Getting it. It would be nice to see a new graphics engine, but that's not the case here. FEAR 2 is coming (under whatever name) and hopefully that will bump up the graphics a bit more in line with the Gears and Rainbow Six levels.
