Sierra Entertainment has told Eurogamer that the F.E.A.R. Files and Persesus Mandate expansions will be released simultaneously here on 16th November.
F.E.A.R. Files is the Xbox 360 pack containing old PC expansion Extraction Point and brand new expansion Perseus Mandate.
You can test out the Extraction Point side of it now on Live if you live in Canada or the US (the Euro version is expected to go up sometime today); stalking through spooky corridors as you carry on the story from the first F.E.A.R campaign. That means freaky little sister Alma is still out there and apparently not finished with you, and you will be given new weapons like the minigun to test out in using the fancy bullet-time special effects.
Or PC owners can get their hands on a sampler for brand new standalone expansion Perseus Mandate on the official website. This, if you remember, tells the original story of F.E.A.R. from the eyes of a different first encounter assault recon team. So it is off to Armacham again to apparently witness things the first team never saw coming.
Both of the new expansion packs are stand-alone, so you will not need the original game to play them.
Original developer Monolith was replaced by TimeGate Studios after creating the first instalments, but announced recently that it planned to make a F.E.A.R. sequel under a different name: Project Origin.
