The story begins as an unidentified paramilitary force infiltrates a multi-billion dollar aerospace compound. The government responds by sending in Special Forces, but loses contact as an eerie signal interrupts radio communications. When the interference subsides moments later, the team has been literally torn apart. As part of a classified strike team created to deal with threats no one else can handle, your mission is simple: Eliminate the intruders at any cost. Determine the origin of the signal. And contain this crisis before it spirals out of control.

“Consumers around the world will be able to get their copies of F.E.A.R. at the same time – October 18th,” said Philip W. O’Neil, Chief Operating Officer and President of North America for Vivendi Universal Games. “The great feedback that F.E.A.R. has received in the media has helped create a huge demand, one that can be satisfied tomorrow.”

Developed by Monolith Productions, F.E.A.R. is an intense first-person close-quarters combat experience with rich atmosphere and an engaging, paranormal horror storyline.
