We knew it was coming after a teaser the other week, but now we get the sad confirmation that the third installment of the popular first-person series from Warner Bros. has the number three integrated like a cancer into the middle of the title.

Yep, F.E.A.R. 3 has been confirmed as a thing which is happening. In order to help garner the series more cred with horror fans, they've sought out some heavy hitters to contribute to the project. A press release we've been given states that horror legend, John Carpenter has consulted on the game along with 30 Days of Night writer Steve Niles.

Hopefully, the upward trend of the F.E.A.R. series continues with this third game. You have one promise from me, though: You'll never see me write the name of this game with a number in it. Ever. 

Check out the press release after the fold.

 

WARNER BROS. INTERACTIVE ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES

F.E.A.R. 3

FOR MICROSOFT XBOX 360, PLAYSTATION®3 SYSTEM AND WINDOWS PC

DIVERGENT CO-OP EVOLVES THE HORROR FIRST-PERSON SHOOTER FRANCHISE

WITH CONSULTATION FROM HORROR MASTERMINDS JOHN CARPENTER AND STEVE NILES

Burbank, Calif. – April 8, 2010 – Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announces F.E.A.R. 3, a heart-pounding paranormal horror first person shooter unleashing intense combat, compelling narrative and co-op play that evolves the franchise. F.E.A.R. 3 is set to release on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, and Windows PC in fall 2010.

Alma returns in F.E.A.R. 3 but this time her sons Point Man and Paxton Fettel introduce divergent co-op, giving players distinctly different abilities affecting their own play as well as the experience of their co-op partner. Gamers participate in single player or co-op modes as Point Man, a genetically enhanced super soldier originally introduced in F.E.A.R., or they can play cooperatively as his conniving brother Paxton Fettel, whose incredible telekinetic power has given him life beyond the grave. The game is developed by Day 1 Studios, developer of the original F.E.A.R. console games in collaboration with Monolith Studios.

“Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is evolving the F.E.A.R. brand with top horror, co-op and first person shooter combat in F.E.A.R. 3,” said Martin Tremblay, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “Monolith Productions has passed the torch to Day 1 Studios to create a quality, powerful game that stays true to the roots of the F.E.A.R. franchise but takes players to a heightened level of gameplay.”

To further ensure extreme terror in F.E.A.R. 3, legendary horror director John Carpenter  (Halloween, Village of the Damned) and critically acclaimed horror comic and script writer Steve Niles (30 Days of Night) have provided consultation to enhance several of the game’s frightening aspects. Steve Niles co-wrote the game script with the development team and John Carpenter provided his expertise in crafting the in-game cinematics.

“After working closely with Monolith, Day 1 is honored to bring the next iteration of the F.E.A.R. franchise to gamers with key elements of the past games yet providing fresh combat and horror experiences in F.E.A.R. 3,” said Denny Thorley, Founder and President, Day 1 Studios. “Players can look forward to new features such as divergent co-op, an evolved cover system, and more scares in F.E.A.R. 3.”
