Is it F3AR or FEAR 3? Whatever. It’s got fighting robots in it.

WB just released the PAX dev diary for the third FEAR game, confirming the horror shooter has mech combat.

The footage explains the process of shifting the IP over to developer Day 1 and shows a fair amount of shooting and crashing helicopters.

This is what happens in the plot, according to the publisher:

Nine months ago, Point Man and his F.E.A.R. squad were tapped to stop a telepathically gifted cannibal who had begun a murderous rampage. Point Man learned the target was his brother, Paxton Fettel, working alongside their tortured and psychically powerful mother, Alma Wade. Despite this revelation, Point Man followed orders to destroy them and subsequently ravaged the surrounding city and most of his F.E.A.R. team. Now, it is clear that Alma’s psychic influence survived— and worse, she is about to birth something that could destroy the world. Fettel has returned from death with an unclear agenda, refusing to leave Point Man’s side and asking for help to reach Alma. The remaining F.E.A.R. squad is still trying to complete their mission. With his chain of command broken and Point Man calling his own shots, where will his allegiance lie?

Chuck in robots and helicopters and you’re off. It’s out this “winter”.
