Yesterday we brought you some info on FEAR 2's upcoming single player campaign DLC from an interview with IGN. Today Warner sent out some more details, including a definitive release date and details of an upcoming, free title update that incorporates a slow-mo deathmatch into the title.
FEAR 2: Reborn will land on consoles this coming September 3rd - slightly later than the August release date Monolith told IGN. Details on the new update and DLC are as follows:
• Four All New Levels: Face the chaos of Alma’s aftermath from an entirely new point of view: that of Replica Soldier Foxtrot813. As gamers begin the mission as part of an orbital Powered Armor drop to reinforce their squad, the ruined city of Auburn emanates supernatural events and familiar voices, beckoning Foxtrot813 to go against orders from Replica command. Be careful, not everything is as it seems…
• Slow-Mo Deathmatch: Through a free title update, gamers obtain a slow-mo powerup to slow down enemies in multiplayer deathmatch, thus gaining a distinct short-term advantage. The longer players hold onto the slow-mo powerup, the more objective points are accumulated, contributing to the overall score. Watch out though, whoever has slow-mo ability becomes a bigger target to everyone else!
Also, in an unheard turn of events, Warner Bros today announced that a demo of the Reborn content will hit the Marketplace on August 27th ... a demo? Of DLC? That's new to us, but certainly welcomed.
