It´s been a really long time since i heard anything at all F.E.A.R. (First Encounter Assault Recon) related. And that´s sad, because i really loved Monolith Productions F.E.A.R. 1 and 2.
The third game in the series however (it was made by Day 1 Studios, released back in 2011), was (imo) THE worst game in the series so far (i do not count the expansions).
But it´s been over 3 years since F.E.A.R. 3 got released. And it´s been quite as the grave ever since. Until now that is. But one again, it´s a new developer that´s behind the steering wheel. This time it´s a South Korean studio named “InPlay Interactive“, and the name of the game would be “F.E.A.R. Online“.
Which would be a online F2P action/horror game (which you can download via Steam). Apparently, the game got released on Steam about a week ago. Still, it was just pure luck that i even found out about F.E.A.R. Online (a short tweet mention by the devs).
Anyhow, i have no idea if F.E.A.R. Online are worth my (your) time or not. So i´m going to give it a try asap!
