Project Origin to Forever Be Known as F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin, Thankfully
Thanks go out to the gaming gods for somehow persuading Monolith to change the name of their sequel to the highly popular F.E.A.R. from the silly and relatively dumb Project Origin to a more realistic and less arcane F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin. Seriously, “Project Origin” alone did not even really sound like a F.E.A.R. game, did it?
This news landed in our inboxes this morning via a lovely press release from Warner Bros. Interactive who fully expects the sequel to arrive on the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on February 10, 2009 in North America and February 13, 2009 in Europe.
F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin, is full of visceral combat set inside a sinister and paranormal universe that begins shortly before the ending of the 2005 hit. A Special Forces squad is on a routine mission when the city of Auburn is rocked by a supernatural explosion. Alma, a girl with immense power and a thirst for revenge, has unleashed her wrath upon the city and thrown it into chaos. The squad must combat enemy forces and the supernatural as they struggle to find a way to stop Alma and uncover the mysterious forces arrayed against them before it’s too late.
It has been months since we have heard anything new about this game, but the new title is at least something to be pleased about - I know a lot of gamers have been complaining about the title ever since the game was announced. Hopefully, that will be the only thing worthy of complaint, but we shall see once the game gets closer to a release.
