It's almost impossible to announce the news that FEAR Online is moving out of alpha phase and into beta testing without pretending to be a mad scientist working for the FEAR series' evil corporation Armacham, but here goes. *Ahem* PC horror/FPS mash-up FEAR Online will move to beta testing on May 26, publisher Aeria Games has announced. Players can register for the beta, free of charge, via the game's website.
Developed by Inplay Interactive and published by Aeria Games, FEAR Online will feature 10 maps as well as competitive and cooperative modes to play. Competitive play will be team-based, while co-op scenarios will present a story that unfolds parallel to the events of FEAR 2: Project Origin.
Whew, made it through the whole announcement without cackling maniacally. Heh. Heheh. Hehehehe! HEHEHE ... MWAH-HAHAHAHA!! *evil laughter*
