E3: More F.E.A.R. this year

Expansions for PC, 360.

Vivendi Games has turned off the lights again and announced a new F.E.A.R. expansion pack for PC and Xbox 360.

The new campaign is called Perseus Mandate and offers us a fresh perspective on the original campaign. So off we go to the creepy halls of Armacham as a different soldier in a different team, to discover a parallel story the first assault team never saw coming.

On top of this there are new enemies to unload bullets into, new weapons, and enhanced AI - a tall order considering how good it was in the original.

Perseus Mandate is the second expansion pack for F.E.A.R. on PC, following Extraction Point that came out late last year. Both of these will be bundled together in a F.E.A.R. Files compilation for Xbox 360 - with each playable as a stand-alone game, so you don't need the original to play them.

Perseus Mandate and F.E.A.R. Files are expected towards the end of the year.

Monolith created the original F.E.A.R. game, which earned itself almost top marks from Eurogamer for its cinematic gameplay and eerie atmosphere. However, TimeGate Studios handled Extraction Point under Monolith's direction, and Vivendi hasn't mentioned who will be developing Perseus Mandate.

Prices for each are yet to be mentioned, too, but more information is expected from E3 this week.

Head over to our F.E.A.R. Files gallery to see what goes bump in the night.
