F.E.A.R. has always been one of those games that just creeps me the hell out when I play it. Especially when I play it in a basement at night with surround sound and all of the lights off. It makes me all tingly ... in a bad way.
So of course when I was offered a chance to check out the upcoming free-to-play horror shooter F.E.A.R. Online and stream it live, I couldn't say no.
Here's the provided boilerplate for the game, which takes place shortly after the events of F.E.A.R. 2 Project Origin:
In F.E.A.R. Online, tensions reach a boiling point as the F.E.A.R. task force investigates Armacham Technology Corporation's unsettling experiments. With several team combat modes spanning more than ten ominous maps, the game is packed with chilling details. The storyline continues in cooperative scenarios that detail the terrifying occurrences surrounding the F.E.A.R. team, in parallel to the events of F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin. Up to four players can team up and fight for their lives against both hostile Armacham personnel and hideous monsters lurking around every corner.
And here's the livestream, which we'll replace with a video once we're done playing for the day:
