First-person horror shooter F.E.A.R. 3 launches in the UK on Friday 27th May, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has announced.

The PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 game was delayed from a March release to May in January "as we look to deliver the best possible game for our consumers", Warner said at the time.

Day 1 Studios, which took over primary development duties from Monolith, took a fresh approach with F.E.A.R. 3.

F.E.A.R. 3 adds co-op to the spooky shooter series. Remember that little girl Alma from the first game? You'll play F.E.A.R. 3 as her two sons: Point Man and Paxton Fettel. One concentrates on guns and time-slowing, the other on telekinetic weaponry.

"One of the things we wanted to do for F.E.A.R. 3 was to continue to extend the audience," lead systems designer Parker Hamilton told Eurogamer in an interview.

"The landscape of gaming is developing into more social aspects and people wanting to play together. We're hoping we can evolve the franchise, maintain all of the tenets we had in previous versions of F.E.A.R. and offer a new, fresh look that new players will enjoy as well. We are definitely interested in pulling in a new crowd for the franchise."
