FEAR 3
F.E.A.R. 3: Alma Gets Multiplayer Contractions (It's a Horde Mode)
Written Thursday, May 26, 2011 By Richard Walker
View author's profile

FEAR 3 is getting yet another multiplayer mode called 'Contractions', which is Horde in all but name, throwing increasingly testing waves of enemies at your co-op team with each contraction Alma has unleashing more evil minions. Lovely stuff.

You'll need to work as a team, forage for supplies and stay alive as wave after wave attempt to kill your entire team. Once every member of the team is incapacitated, the game ends. Like we said... It's Horde.

Check out the new trailer for FEAR 3's co-op multiplayer Contractions mode, then look out for Alma and her supernatural denizens when FEAR 3 releases on June 21st in North America and June 24th in Europe.

It's a bit creepy to call it contractions. Why not just call it waves like normal people.

So now, even the player will not be able to avoid the pains of labor. xD

Very interesting, though the whole Alma wandering the map seems very "Romero" from Call of the Dead, very hyped for this game

Well, I have to admit - at least they are inventive with naming game modes if with nothing else...

@9 If you weren't so oblivious to the fact that Call of Duty isn't the only game to have things roaming the map whilst you're trying to survive. I could list a load of games like that, if you'd like me to?

If you're truly hyped for a game, you wouldn't go around comparing it to other games. Since when did Call of Duty have Robots? Since when was George Romero one of the Key characters from the start of the franchise? Funny thing is, now you might not believe this but...Alma has been in Fear since the very first game!

@11 you need to learn to read as I in no way said CoD was the only game to do such a thing, I simply used it as a recent example. Don't be so quick to judge

@13 please do not lecture me and act as if I am stupid, I have played and loved every single FEAR game, stop being a fuckin idiot - you need to read whats written and not make up what I'm saying in your head, I never once said Romero was a key character you moron

@16 the more you post the more you fail, I compared the ROLE THAT ALMA PLAYS IN THIS MODE to be very similar to the role Romero plays in the recent DLC, if you can't grasp that then get off the internet, I'm done with you... "derp"

What I'm saying is CoD just picked Romero up for a joke, something as a twist, the difference I'm pointing out is Alma is a key character, so it has more logic for her to be roaming in the mist.

@17 If you're seriously pissed with a simple discussion over the internet, having the need to swear and threaten to leave, then you seriously need to sit down and think about where you've got wrong in life. It's the internet, there will always be small discussions, like ours. It may seem like an argument but we're simply discussing why each of our reasons is similar and/or different.

@20 yes I did, to discuss this elsewhere than the comments section, I'm not annoyed at all - I believe this all started with you telling me to "shut up" so maybe you need to take your own advice and "sit down and think" as my opinion has seemed to annoy you

Not annoyed, it was just a stupid, pointless comment that clearly, nobody wanted to read, hence all the thumbs down it got.

@ the guys talking above me. I have never felt more involved in a discussion like this before. I feel like I'm reading a really good book and I am just immersed in your conversation. I think "Whats your problem noob?" should be a great title to pick up and read. I am fully enjoying the experience it has to offer right now.

@Verdinial All he did was point out that the 2 characters do something somewhat similar, you don't have to make a thing out of it.

@#20 If he sends you priv, it's because he doesn't want to spam the news board so why don't you get your crafty ass and take it somewhere else? Why not some tv show if you knowledge is so vast you feel the need to tell whole community about it?

@26 It ended around half hour ago? The only reason you posted was to start it off again, but that won't work. Be quiet you troll feeder, because if I'm a troll, you just fed me.

Me and the other guy are cool now I think, we spoke about it and that's that. The annoying thing is people like 26 who post shit like that, trying to start it up again. It was just a simple misinterpretation which started it, not a troll.

Out of the new co-op modes I've seen so far I am most excited about the Wall of Death and this one. I hope these end up being pretty fun too, because the multiplayer in FEAR hasn't been good since the first imo. I personally could care less honestly as I'm more about the main story, but it would be nice to get a decent multiplayer or at least a couple fun modes. All in all, I can't wait.I just hope the achievements don't turn into the grinding that FEAR 2 was...Xo

Can we please stop calling this gameplay "Horde Mode"? Gears of War 2 is not the first game to have ever done game variant.

the only thing that kinda sux about these co op game modes is that its over if one person on the team dies.Kinda sux if someone decides to afk in the middle of a match.A big plus though is people will be more inclined to pick your ass up unlike in cod zombies where i cant count how many times people just sat there and let me bleed out.

@#29 The annoying thing is dumbasses like you will always try to look smarter than other. This isn't live converations, in case you didn't notice, so who's to know what and when happened/might happen. I don't monitor this topic like you, and I sure as hell don't pay attention to times posted, only the content.

Seriously take your smart mouth and make use of it somwhere else, maybe it will work out for you better....

This game is looking so good. Cant wait to play it. I should really go back and mop up some achievements from the other F.E.A.R. games. Anyone want to boost F.E.A.R. 2 ranks?
