Aeria Games just revealed more juicy details on the upcoming free-to-play multiplayer shooter F.E.A.R. Online, as well as the full website. F.E.A.R. Online will feature all-out warfare between the F.E.A.R. soldiers and ATC security personnel, and players will enlist on either side in competitive team combat. Fans should also keep their eyes peeled for sightings of familiar faces from past games in the series, such as protagonists Point Man and Michael Beckett.
As for game modes, besides team deathmatch and demolition, several unique modes will also be available. The acclaimed Soul King mode returns from F.E.A.R. 3, which puts players in command of an apparition that can possess enemy NPCs and use their weapons and abilities against their opponents. Escape mode will also be familiar to veterans, challenging a team of players to work together to run from a looming wall of fiery death. Lastly, the new Armored Front mode is a battle to control strategic points—with the added twist of a single powerful mech armor available to each team.
You can sign up to the closed beta at the official website.
