Highly Anticipated Sequel to Critically Acclaimed F.E.A.R. Ushers in New
Dimension of Paranormal Horror
BURBANK, Calif. – February 10, 2009 – F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin, developed by
Monolith Productions and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment,
ships to retail stores in North America today for Xbox 360® video game and
entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system
and Games for Windows®. F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin is the sequel to F.E.A.R.,
the critically acclaimed supernatural first-person shooter, and ushers in a new
dimension of paranormal horror, cinematic combat and highly kinetic action.
F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin is a blend of advanced visceral combat mixed with
seamless game pacing set inside a sinister and paranormal universe that begins
shortly before the ending of F.E.A.R. A Special Forces squad is on a routine
mission when the city of Auburn is rocked by a supernatural explosion. Alma, a
girl with immense power and a thirst for revenge, has unleashed her wrath upon
the city and thrown it into chaos. Tension builds as the squad must combat enemy
forces and the supernatural as they struggle to find a way to stop Alma and
uncover the mysterious forces arrayed against them before it’s too late.
As players move throughout the smoldering remains of Auburn in search of Alma,
they must investigate the crumbling remains of schools, hospitals and alleyways
as they are stalked by otherworldly creatures and enemies. Gamers will need to
use everything at their disposal, including all-new weapons and superhuman
abilities, to fight the supernatural forces arrayed against them and keep the
entire city from succumbing to Alma.
In addition to a gripping single-player campaign, F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin
supports up to 16 players for action-packed multiplayer match-ups. Multiplayer
options include nine maps, four modes and a powerful mix of weapons, grenades
and high tech machinery, including the Elite Powered Armor (EPA) mech suits that
players can take control of in both multiplayer and single-player action.
F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin is rated “M” for Mature and is available for Xbox 360
and PLAYSTATION 3 for the suggested retail price of $59.99. It is also available
for Games for Windows at retail outlets, as well as via Steam and Direct2Drive
for the suggested retail price of $49.99.
