F.E.A.R. 3 Confirmed, Monolith No Longer Involved

Alma is back for another round of first-person horror with F.E.A.R. 3 from Day 1 Studios and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC later this fall.

Day 1 Studios, you ask? Original developer Monolith, owned by Warner Bros., does not appear to be developing the third installment. Day 1 Studios, the developer of MechAssault and most recently Fracture, is not new to the series, however; they ported F.E.A.R. to Xbox 360 and PS3.

Monolith has not totally disappeared from the picture, though. The press release states the studio is a collaborative partner with Day 1 Studios. 3. Day 1 Studios is the one calling the shots. Perhaps most interestingly, Warner Bros. has enlisted the help of legendary horror director John Carpenter (Halloween, They Live) and Steve Niles (30 Days of Night) to oversee the horror aspects.

In addition to the return of Alma, F.E.A.R. 3 will introduce "divergent co-op," where each character has distinctly different abilities. These abilities don't just affect the enemy in front of you, either, apparently. Each co-op partner will have abilities that affect their co-op partner. The co-op characters available are Point Man, "a genetically enhanced super soldier originally introduced in F.E.A.R.," and his brother, Paxton Fettel, a dead man with telekenetic powers.

F.E.A.R. 3 also includes what Day 1 Studios and Warner Bros. are calling an "evolved cover system."

Despite my love for horror games, I haven't played the F.E.A.R. games. Should I fix that?
