New F.E.A.R. 3 Multiplayer Mode Vignette – Soul Survivor
One of the most surprising things that will be coming with the new entry into the F.E.A.R. series of games is the multiplayer. Not the fact that F.E.A.R. 3 has a multiplayer, that’s something that’s pretty much standard in First Person Shooters now, but the weird game modes, and especially the names of those modes, that are going to be included.
There’s one called “F***ing Run”. ‘Nuff said.
Another one of those modes, the one detailed in the vignette that Warner Bros. released today, is called “Soul Survivor”. Players of this mode will need to either survive as a hero or succeed as a villain. Each mode will begin with Alma—the powerful tortured psychic—choosing one player to be corrupted. Once that player has been chosen, they will be turned into a spectre, with the ability to possess enemies.
It will be the spectre’s goal to corrupt the remaining squad members before time runs out. If a player is corrupted, they “switch teams” and their objectives to win the game will change. Players will need to work together to either escape the corrupted or band together to corrupt the remaining members.
F.E.A.R. 3 will be released in Europe on June 24th 2011 and North America a couple of days earlier on the 21st June 2011, for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
