Who here hasn’t been freaked our during a video? Playing a game in a room that is pitch black except for the light of the TV screen and walking down a narrow corridor with your character only to have something jump out of a corner and scare the hell out of you causing you to scream in terror and wake up the rest of your house. What? Only me?
Well one of those games that has gotten a reputation for scaring its players on every playthrough has been F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin and today, it’s getting a free demo for its latest expansion pack.
F.E.A.R. 2: Reborn, as the expansion is titled, will give the player a four level single player campaign from the perspective of Replica Soldier Foxtrot 813, a character in the F.E.A.R. lore that no player has had the opportunity to play from before. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Monolith Studios should be praised for the release of this free demo as most downloadable content is usually purchase only, leaving players uneasy about dropping money on something they cannot try before they buy.
The full release of this downloadable content will hit the XBox Live Marketplace and Playstation Store on September 3rd. Also coming the 3rd will be a free title update/patch featuring a new Slow-Mo Deathmatch mode.
