There may be shades of Championship Manager about the split between Monolith and Vivendi over F.E.A.R., but the lack of rancour means Vivendi's having no trouble colouring in the F.E.A.R. shaped holes on its 2006 release schedule.
Recently EuroGamer had a preview of F.E.A.R.'s new expansion pack; Extraction Point for the PC and F.E.A.R. for the Xbox 360, here they write about them and what they are about.
F.E.A.R. leapt out from behind the TV to scare gamers witless and ruin their underpants in 2005. Amalgamating elements of Hong Kong action films like Hard Boiled with the Japanese terror of The Ring, Monolith hit the nail(gun) on the head. Apart from a large number of grey corridors, it was a tremendous game and one that has had many playthroughs.
Between battling Replica soldiers and keeping in touch with his family, Point Man took some time to off of F.E.A.R. operations to talk about his life behind the scenes. Although Point Man could not provide any real personal information and didn’t seem to have much of a personality, he did give us some tidbits about his likes, dislikes and opinions about his missions. We had to get the best typist in the industry to keep up as the interview went really, really fast.
