Free F.E.A.R. 2 content in April

Toy Soldiers pack out next month.

Monolith picks a winner.

Monolith Productions has announced that the name of its F.E.A.R. sequel will be Project Origin.

It was the winning entry in the Name Your Fear competition, which the developer ran during the summer months to help it come up with a title for its new game. You might remember that it couldn't just call it F.E.A.R. 2, because it doesn't actually own the rights to the name - old pal Warner Bros does.

Project Origin was picked above other (and much better) finalists Dark Signal and Dead Echo. But our real favourite was the unrecognised and punchy "THE GIRL IN THE KETCHUP STAINED DRESS".

Name the sequel to F.E.A.R.

Monolith has been trying to think up a new name for F.E.A.R. for so long that it's given up and decided to enlist the help of its American fanbase.

The Name Your Fear contest runs between now and 22nd June for over-18s in "the contiguous 48 U.S. and the District of Columbia".

Why not just call it F.E.A.R. 2? Because, as those with long memories will recall, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment bought up Monolith in 2004, giving it the rights to build on F.E.A.R. in all but name - that name resting with former publisher Vivendi, which has gone on to exploit it with a PC expansion pack and a pair of excellent console releases ported by Day 1 Studios.
