Sierra has released a PC demo showcasing upcoming F.E.A.R. expansion pack Extraction Point.

Your little router will have to pump 552MB of it onto your PC, and then you'll be able to sample some sections set, surprisingly enough, in warehouse and office environments. 3D Gamers also notes that you can toy around with the mini-gun.

The full game's due out on October 24th, and is in development at TimeGate Studios. It follows on directly from the conclusion of F.E.A.R., which means Alma's on the loose and apparently not finished with you.

To be shown at E3.

A brand new F.E.A.R. PC expansion pack will line up alongside the now-confirmed Xbox 360 version at E3 next week.

Vivendi's announced that F.E.A.R.: Extraction Point is currently in development for release this autumn. TimeGate Studios is handling it, in conjunction with original developer Monolith, which is thought to be working on sequels to the game - despite not having the official name to use any more since Warner Bros. bought it out.

Extraction Point will pick up from where F.E.A.R. ended, apparently, which ought to be pretty interesting given just how F.E.A.R. ended. Apparently you'll return to battle the now-free Alma and her minions across the destroyed city, with new locations, weapons and enemies.
