Free-to-play shooter F.E.A.R. Online coming to U.S.

F.E.A.R. is coming back... as a free-to-play PC shooter. Wartune publisher Aeria Games today announced it's bringing F.E.A.R. Online to the U.S. and closed beta signups are open now.

F.E.A.R. Online was developed by Korean developer Inplay Interactive in association with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. The below trailer is for the Korean version of the game, but it has subtitles for what little dialogue occurs.

Ghost girl/woman/peripheral vision occupant Alma's story is expanded in four-player co-op missions which occur in the same timeframe as F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin. FEAR mode looks like more of a Call of Duty Zombies or Left 4 Dead inspired run-and-gun, and Team Deathmatch, Search & Destroy, and possess-em-up Soul King mode add some PvP competition.

What do you think of the horror shooter's new direction?

    Can't say I am impressed. The original FEAR has some of the best gameplay I've ever seen in a shooter and they were never able to capitalize on it in anything that followed. As a F2P shooter, I can't think that it will even be better than 3, and 3 pretty much killed the franchise.

    Imho, F.E.A.R. has the best A.I. of all shooter games...that was the main reason for me to carry on with F.E.A.R. 3
