EXCLUSIVE new FEAR 2 video reveals monstrous mech suit

Know thy enemy. It’s a smart bit of advice, especially when your enemy may or may not be a creepy ghost girl, a cannibalistic psychic with the ability to control a whole clone army with his mind, or mechanical exo-armor bristling with missiles and invulnerable to all conventional weaponry. Clearly, to get through upcoming horror-shooter FEAR 2: Project Origin, you’re going to need all the help you can get. 

Luckily, we’ve got a man deep inside the organization, who’s feeding us information on the various foes we’ll encounter. This is the first of his reports showcasing just what the game has in store for us: A leaked internal memo from the president of the corrupt ATC corporation to its employees, accompanied by a chilling video.

To:  Internal Communication Team

From:  G. Aristide
President, ATC

Date:  10-October

Subject: Project 942A-SF (EPA) Information


Armacham Technology Corporation (ATC) has developed an upgraded battle suit for use with specially trained replica soldiers from Project Perseus.  The Elite Powered Armor, or EPA, has been designed to be dropped from extremely high altitudes into combat situations.  At this time, the EPA has next to zero vulnerability but can be susceptible to EMP blasts or extreme jolts of electricity.

The EPA has a self repair feature that will actively address damage sustained in combat.  Minor damage is fixed automatically by the internal processes, but for larger repairs, the driver is ejected from the cockpit until such a time that it is safe to resume operation.  For additional protection, the EPA will be protected by an energy field that absorbs a great number of concussive blasts.

As you can see from the training simulation photo below, the EPA will be equipped with two arm mounted chain guns and a seemingly infinite supply of ammunition - including the addition of two shoulder mounted rocket launchers.  Internal testing has shown that the EPA is a devastating weapon capable of laying waste to any battlefield it is dropped into.

    Dug out FEAR the other day actually after reading about the sequel, wasn't very scary but it's fun to play with the volume turned up loud, and is it me, but does the addition of well implemented slow motion never get old? Whoever said the combat wasn't very good on FEAR, you boy, should try playing it without the aid of slow-mo and watch the AI EAT you. I for one actually enjoy the rarity of having enemies who want to kill me rather then provide me with more ammo with which to kill their equally useless breathren.

    For some reason I never played the original, though I hear it was pretty good. I have seen some pretty sick trailers for this new one so I might check it out, but this one didn't do much for me.

    first anyway, i thought the first fear was a bit crap really, the combat wasn't very good. and this doesn't look much better from what i have seen of it.
