F.E.A.R. 3 is a First-Person Shooter (FPS) that blends classic single and multiplayer combat with the unforgettable Horror/Survival gameplay that the F.E.A.R. franchise is known for. The third game in the F.E.A.R. series, F.E.A.R. 3 continues the intricate storyline tying together the psychically dangerous mother Alma Wade with her two sons “Point Man” and Paxton Fettel, as well as the F.E.A.R. operations team. Players take control of both “Point Man” and Paxton Fettel at different times in the game, utilizing each’s unique abilities and powers in a dark adventure that will test the player’s loyalties, combat skills and sense of duty. Additional features include: co-op and multiplayer modes, cinematics and story input by John Carpenter and Steve Niles, and additional downloadable content (DLC) available online.
As with the previous two releases in the F.E.A.R. Franchise, F.E.A.R. 3 is a FPS with Horror gameplay. Players experience action both from perspective of Paxton Fettel – resurrected from the headshot he received in the previous game – and his brother Point Man, who was the trigger man. Since Fettel was indeed killed in the earlier encounter, his presence in the game is almost ghostlike, with he relying on a devastating range of telekinetic powers, including the ability to possess the bodies of the living in order to perform certain physical tasks. Point Man on the other hand is quite corporal and is a super soldier with expertise in a wide range of weaponry. He also has loyalties to the A.I. F.E.A.R. operatives that populate the game. The problem with this is that the operative’s goal is to eliminate the growing power of Alma, the mother of both Point Man and Paxton Fettel. Because of this layers will face choices that will pit duty against family loyalties. Both characters have access to mech units encountered throughout the game.
Developed by Day 1 Studios, F.E.A.R. 3 is the latest chapter in the F.E.A.R. franchise and continues the twisted story of Alma Wade and her two sons, Point Man and Paxton Fettel.

Eight months ago, Point Man and his F.E.A.R. squad were tapped to stop an unknown man who had commandeered a secret battalion of telepathically-controlled supersoldiers at the Armacham research facility in the Northwestern US city of Fairport. During the mission Point Man learned that the man wasn’t working alone. In fact, the very people Point Man was working to destroy were his telepathic, cannibalistic brother, Paxton Fettel, and his tortured and psychically powerful mother, Alma Wade—products of Armacham’s perverse paranormal experiments. Despite this revelation, Point Man moved forward with the standing F.E.A.R. team orders to stop the targets at any cost. In a last-ditch attempt to end the pair’s homicidal rampage, the F.E.A.R. team set in motion an explosive series of events that seemingly accomplished their goal but at the cost of ravaging the city, its inhabitants and almost all of Point Man’s squad mates.
For months following the blast, events in Fairport have made it clear that Alma’s psychic influence survived—and worse, her paranormal power is growing and spilling into reality. Now her supernatural agony repeatedly rocks the city as she attempts to secure the survival of her bloodline and reunite her family. Armacham’s security force remains violently focused on eliminating all evidence of the events in the city, and the remaining F.E.A.R squad carries on the mission to stop Alma.
With the chain of command broken and Point Man calling his own shots, where will his allegiance lie? With his brother Paxton Fettel, back from the dead, arriving with an unclear agenda and refusing to leave Point Man’s side? With his pregnant mother Alma and her horrifically twisted, yet immensely powerful paranormal existence? Or with his remaining F.E.A.R. squad brethren who are hell bent on saving the world, but at the cost of destroying the only blood ties Point Man has ever had?
F.E.A.R. 3 features a wide variety of multiplayer modes that can be played by up to 4 players. The multiplayer consists of a robust class system as well as leaderboards.
In Soul Survivor, the objective is to survive wave after waves of enemies that are commanded by a player who has been corrupted by Alma and turned into a specter, a spirit that can control other enemies' bodies. The rest of the F.E.A.R. squad try to survive. If one of the members is downed and not healed fast enough, the reaper will corrupt him and turn him into a reaper. The winner is the last man standing.
Soul King is a competitive mode where each player starts out as a specter before the map is flooded by enemies. The player must then take control of one of the enemies and kill anything that moves. Each time an enemy is killed, he drops souls that must be collected. The player who's collected the most souls becomes the soul king. The soul king is clearly visible by any player on the map, making him a prime target as whoever kills him gets half of his souls and becomes the new soul king (of course, the player who was the soul king loses half his souls too). The winner is the player who's the soul king when time runs out.
Players must run from A to B while getting chased by the fog of death created by Alma. The fog begins chasing you once you've reached a certain point on the map. Players must stick together as they plow through waves of enemies, running from the fog. If a player falls, he must be revived immediately before the fog kills him. If the fog kills one player, it's game over for the 3 others. Players are alerted when the fog is about to kill them (the screen starts going black).
Players must work together in a mode similar to Horde in Gears of War 2. Players are surrounded by Alma's fog of death from which enemies come out of are are forced to mount barricades to protect themselves. One player has access to a mech suit. The mode operates in rounds and the game ends when all players are down.
F.E.A.R. 3 is the first in the franchise to have co-op. You can ether play the game single player as the Point Man, or have a Friend join in as Paxton Fettel. Each character has their own unique abilities, allowing the players to use them together for different strategies.Paxton Fettel can not use weapons but instead has psychic powers at his disposal. He can stun enemies, suspend them for the Point Man to shoot, or even possess them and use their weapons to surprise the enemy, Geist-style. He also has a special sense that allows him to see alternate paths and hidden ammo and weapon cashes.
F.E.AR 3's co-op mode also has competitive elements built into it as both players compete to become the "favorite son" by scoring points. Points are earned by killing enemies in different ways and completing one of four types of challenges: Aggression (Example: melee kill 3 enemies from behind), Tactics (Example: 8 kills with one grenade), Psychic (Example: harvest 5 psychic links) and Aptitude (Example: 5 suicide kills).
