F.E.A.R. First Encounter Assault Recon is a survival horror first-person shooter
developed by Monolith Productions and published by Vivendi. It was released on
October 17, 2005, for Windows, and ported by Day 1 Studios to the Xbox 360
and PlayStation 3. Timegate Studios has released two expansion packs,
F.E.A.R. Extraction Point in October 2006,and F.E.A.R. Perseus Mandate
in November 2007. A direct sequel, Project Origin, which ignores Perseus
Mandate and Extraction point, was announced by Monolith Productions.
The game's story revolves around a supernatural phenomenon, which F.E.A.R.a
fictional special forces teamis called to contain. The player assumes the
role of F.E.A.R.'s Point Man, who possesses superhuman reflexes and combats
an army of cloned soldiers, and at the same time uncovers the secrets of a
paranormal menace in the form of a little girl.
F.E.A.R. was well-received by critics, scoring 89 on Game Rankings, and The
New York Times calling it "as thrilling and involving as Half-Life." A
"Director's Edition" DVD version of the game was also released. The DVD
included a "making of" documentary, a director's commentary, a short
live-action prequel and the exclusive first episode of the promotional
P.A.N.I.C.S. machinima. A related Dark Horse comic book was also packaged
with the DVD. Along with the Director's Edition, F.E.A.R. Gold Edition was
released. Gold Edition included the Director's Edition and Extraction Point.
F.E.A.R. Platinum Edition features the original game and two expansion packs.
Monolith Productions has announced a sequel to F.E.A.R., which will not be
titled F.E.A.R. 2 due to Vivendi's ownership of the F.E.A.R. name.The
game will instead be called Project Origin, which is a name derived from a
contest to name the sequel. However, the follow-up will stay in the game's
existing universe, retaining the original storyline and characters. Monolith
Productions will require a new publisher for the game, since they were
purchased by Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment in 2004 while
development of F.E.A.R. was under way, after which Vivendi Universal was
dropped as publisher.
Vivendi Universal published the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 ports of the
original game, developed by Day 1 Studios.
An expansion pack titled F.E.A.R. Extraction Point was released by
TimeGate Studios on October 24, 2006.
This expansion owes its name to the game's ultimate goal for the player,
to reach the extraction point and leave the city where the adventure
takes place. Extraction Point adds new weapons, enemies, and single-player
levels, but no new multiplayer content. Additional improvements were also
made to the enemy artificial intelligence.
The second expansion pack,
F.E.A.R. Perseus Mandate, also from TimeGate Studios, was released in
November 2007. F.E.A.R. Files was released simultaneously for the Xbox 360,
consisting of both Extraction Point and Perseus Mandate.
F.E.A.R. Perseus Mandate is a stand-alone expansion pack to the computer
game F.E.A.R. The expansion was developed by TimeGate Studios, the same
development team behind the first expansion, F.E.A.R. Extraction Point.
The game follows the exploits of a new player character, a member of a
secondary F.E.A.R. team sent in to investigate Armacham's Perseus Project.
The game takes place during the events of the original F.E.A.R. as well
as the Extraction Point expansion pack. New introductions to gameplay
include friendly A.I.-controlled characters who fight alongside the player
character, as well as a new faction of enemies.
