Fans of horror shooters have probably known about F.E.A.R 3 for a while now.
F.E.A.R. 3 continues the F.E.A.R. brand legacy, unleashing a paranormal horror first person shooter that delivers frenetic combat grounded in reality.F.E.A.R. 3 evolves the brand, introducing Divergent Co-op for two players: deep, social gameplay giving players distinctly different abilities which can affect their own play as well as the experience of the gamer they are playing with. Players can take on the role of Point Man, a genetically enhanced soldier with superhuman reflexes and the ability to manipulate time, or the undead spirit of his brother Paxton Fettel, a paranormal entity who possesses incredible psychic powers.
