A free demo for F.E.A.R. 2: Reborn, the upcoming DLC for F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin, is now available on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Marketplace.
F.E.A.R. 2: Reborn will offer four brand-new levels of single-player action taking place in the aftermath of the original game. This time around, however, players will have a completely new and unique perspective as they take on the role of Replica Soldier Foxtrot 813. I’m not so sure how good this is for the player, given the fate of every other Replica soldier to show his face in the game, but it’s probably safe to assume that Foxtrot 813 will be somewhat more competent and durable than his brothers.
The new DLC contains more than two hours of playtime and will include the same slow-motion combat action that’s been a feature of the franchise since it debuted in 2005. Little else is known and in an interview with IGN, Monolith Associate Producer Lucas Myers said, “The major crux of the story arc is… finding out why Foxtrot 813 is special; why he is being singled out… and for what purpose.”
F.E.A.R. 2: Reborn is set for release on September 3 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, although PC gamers apparently won’t be able to enjoy the demo beforehand. Patches for the games, which will include the all-new Slow-Mo Deathmatch Mode, will be released on the same day.
