The latest trailer for Fear 3, which shows off the game's "Contractions" co-op multiplayer survival mode, makes us more unsettled than the trailers that preceded it. Maybe it's that eerie fog. Maybe it's the omnipresence of Alma. Maybe it's because of all the totally gross pregnancy contractions.

Whether it's how many Replica Soldiers you can toast or which genocidal anti-hero son is going to get top bunk when this is all over, competition is a core component of the sibling protagonists' relationship in FEAR 3 -- the ultimate prize being, uh, the favored son of a genocidal, creepy blood-s...

Fear and surprise go hand in hand sometimes, so imagine our fearprise (surprear?) when we heard that FEAR 3's release had been pushed back a month in the UK. Originally set to launch on May 27, the game will now debut on June 24 in the UK, Warner Bros. revealed to Videogamer. No exact reason for...

FEAR 3 will feature four multiplayer gametypes, each an isolated mode largely dissimilar to the others. We already got a look at the aptly named "F**king Run!" scenario during PAX East, and at a recent preview event I got my hands on the three other modes, as well as a second take of F**king Run....

"Normal" family values may include stuff like "be polite to your mom" and "care for others," but the siblings in FEAR 3 have to deal with things that are a bit more ... sinister.

If you're a horror game enthusiast living in the United Kingdom, you may want to spend the next couple of months avoiding any circumstances that may frighten you.

It's always a good sign when a representative for a game developer who's leading you through a demo tells you, "No, that's not an in-house nickname -- that's what this game mode is actually called." The gametype in question is FEAR 3's "F***ing Run" (its actual moniker), a four-player cooperative...

Why is FEAR 3 so damn scary? Well, the obvious answer is "because of all the blood and monsters and stuff," but the latest behind-the-scenes video shows that there's a little more to it than that. Well, a lot more to it than that, actually. Like, a whole universe of stuff to it than that.

Paxton Fettel won't be reserved solely for co-op in FEAR 3, as a new trailer reveals he will also be playable in the solo campaign. Once a level is beaten with protagonist Point Man, it will then be playable by Fettel, who can use his powers to defeat enemies -- by which we mean make them explode.
