I wasn’t so sure about all this, but I came upon some details in a F.E.A.R. 3, or F.3.A.R. “preview” in the local Techno Times lately.
It claims that you play as a “telekinetic trooper who can lift foes off their feet and bash them into walls, while spraying gunfire.”
This mini-preview got some details right – about the co-op mode that will be featured in the game, the new cover system, and so on. But something else that the preview mentions is that the subtitle, once thought to be “Project Hades”, could be “Revelation”. It also says that the possible release date could be October 7th, possibly referring to this year.
Some of this is correct, but about the telekinetic bit – that’s more Paxton Fettel than Point Man, so it’s probably referring once again to the co-op mode where Paxton can use some of his powers. Something else seen in the trailer that was released not too long ago also showed Paxton was able to freeze enemies in a sort of stasis.
But then again, Paxton didn’t ever carry a weapon, so how’s he going to spray gunfire? Usually Pointy does all the shooting.
About the release date. I haven’t read anything official, but there was word that it would come out this year. All I’ve read so far is that it’s scheduled for a Q3 release, which is June - September. The logo also doesn’t look like the official one.
Like I was saying: sketchy. Take it with a grain of salt.
By the way, I seemed to have missed it a few days ago, but I saw that the new box art for F.3.A.R. has been released. See it above.
