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.

Anyway, if you're an American and have a good idea for what to call the new F.E.A.R., your prize could be an all-expenses-paid trip to Monolith (Kirkland, Washington) to meet the developer, along with the chance to have your name and likeness featured in the game.

F.E.A.R. 2 - whatever it ends up being called - is expected to appear on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, although its release date is still a mystery.
