Chicago (IL) - We first took a very brief look at the chilling video game F.E.A.R. For the Xbox 360 back at E3 in 2006. The popular title's sequel, now in development, has just spawned a name from developer Monolith Productions – it will be called F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin.
F.E.A.R. 2 is being developed for the Xbox 360, Windows PC and PlayStation 3. It is set to be published by Warner Bros. Interactive on Feb. 10 of next year in North America and February 3 in Europe. The game is said to "continue the legacy of the original F.E.A.R. game with story and combat while adding new twists, gameplay and graphics to expand the players’ experience."
Monolith says the sequel begins shortly before the ending of the original title. The plot line is roughly described as follows: "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. 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."
