F.E.A.R. 2 has mechs, new trailer proves it

What’s the best recipe for doubling the action of a shooter sequel? Start with a base of large, vehicular robots. Mix in and attach chain guns and rocket launchers. Sprinkle in some creepy little girls. Wrap and then bake in an oven full of blood and carnage for several hours.

It’s a simple, but ingenious concoction that the guys behind F.E.A.R. 2 Project Origin have decided to make a reality. The trailer — available after the break, but only if you’re 17 or older — has the final product. It is called Environmental Powered Armor and to say that it will amplify the original game’s action is an understatement.

The video opens as if it wasn’t all about satiating a fundamental desire to destroy. In fact, it might tickle memories of Fallout 3’s introduction. A voice talks about change, a nuclear bomb flashes, and a busted up bus is shown. The difference being that it quickly shifts to mech combat.
