Hurrah! FEAR's out today. Yes! Just to clarify, it is in fact a Tuesday, but for some reason Vivendi's decided to release Monolith's scarily good looking scary FPS game today, worldwide, rather than waiting until Friday. Good of them really.
Equally good of them/horrendously awful of them, depending on which way you look at it, is the news that there's also a patch out for it, nudging the game up to version 1.01 by fixing a few handfuls of bugs mostly relating to the multiplayer. For example, you won't fall out of the level by accessing the menu on a ladder any more, which is good news.
Grab it from 3D Gamers if you need it. And for those wondering, our FEAR review will be going up very soon.
