Sierra has released a 16-player multiplayer demo of F.E.A.R. (First Encounter Assault Recon) today, allowing you to get a feel for the online portion of this hugely-anticipated paranormal first person shooter at close quarters.

Tom's certainly been getting hot and bothered about the game all year, and effectively compared the bullet-time laced experence to being able to star in your own action movie.

The full game's due out on PC on October 21st, but while we await Volition's excellent-sounding release, why not give this 432MB demo a try? It includes two maps: DM Factory and CT Facility. Go, go, go.

Oh, by the way, while you're there, check out the excellent Weapons Of F.E.A.R. video (45MB), which gives a full run-down of what you can expect from the full game.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
