VU Games have today confirmed that F.E.A.R. is on the way to the PlayStation 3 console, and will be released on April 20th. The game was originally due out alongside the PS3’s PAL debut, but the publisher delayed the game for unknown reasons.
The sci-fi shooter has already given PC and Xbox 360 gamers a chill, and the new version also includes a rapid-fire shotgun unavailable in the other outings. As well as an extra weapon, we also learn that that the game includes “a bonus mission that lets the player jump into the shoes of the Special Force Operational Detachment (SFOD) soldiers that investigated the original Armacham disturbance – basically the incident that was the trigger for the events of FEAR”.
VU producer Rob Loftus adds that “We won’t be changing the plotline, but we’ll certainly be adding to it with the bonus mission. You’ll get to see what happened to the SFOD squad that the FEAR team is trying to locate in the original storyline.”
Online support for up to 16 people will feature from launch, there will also be online leaderboards and even the possibility for future expansion, if the game proves popular.
