Story Information of F.3.A.R
The new game coming into the F.E.A.R franchise comes out this year on June 21. The story begins 9 months later after the events of the first F.E.A.R game. You play as the protagonist of the first F.E.A.R game, Point Man, who is also the son of the main antagonist Alma, your mother who is psychic and psychotic(what a pair!!!). You hear of the news that Alma is conceiving again, and playing as Point Man you decide to prevent the birth of your new sibling. While playing the game, it is the first time that this type of gameplay has been introduced into the F.E.A.R franchise. Throughout the game you will be playing with a partner, an AI or playing with a friend through Coop through the campaign. Your partner throughout the entire game will be Paxton Fettel, your brother who you shot through the head in the first F.E.A.R game. In the first F.E.A.R game you killed your brother Fettel, but due to his hateful emotions he remains in the world of the living. He will partner up with you through the game also trying to reach Alma, though his motives are still yet to be seen.

Coop Mode
When playing through coop you can play as either Point Man, or Paxton Fettel. A distinguishing attribute of the coop on F.E.A.R 3 is that both characters come with their own sets of abilities.
Playing as Point Man you play as the stereotypical FPS character, loaded with guns. A notable factor in Point Man's set of skills is that you are given the ability to go into slow-mo, which has been seen in past F.E.A.R games. The slow-mo action allows you to slow down time and react faster than your enemies. Using the slow-mo action at an appropriate time can allow you to pull off combos with your partner, Paxton Fettel.
Paxton Fettel comes with a completely different set of abilities than Point Man. First off is Fettel's ability to shoot out stun bolts through his hand(cool yes ). These bolts don't hold as much power as the guns that Point Man possesses but don't worry. One of Fettel's most noticable powers is his power of possession( he is a ghost after all ). Fettel can possess any enemy AI throughout the game and use its equipment and powers. Though you can take possession of anything some enemies require some softening up before possession(what I mean is beat the crap out of it right before death and then you possess). Lastly is Fettel's ability to suspend enemies into the air where you can blast the enemy with your stun bolts, or have your partner Point Man shoot the crap out of your enemy while it can do nothing to stop you both.

Multiplayer
F.E.A.R 3 also has a unique set of multiplayer modes, which some are not usually seen in other games.
First off is the multiplayer mode (srsly this is the real name not joking.) F**KING RUN. In this multiplayer mode you and your companions must(this is self explanatory) F**KING RUN!!! You start out with your equipment and try to run away from a giant cloud/wall thing,courtesy of Alma,that is rushing towards you. You run through your map trying to outrun Alma's giant wall of death. You meet up with enemies while trying to run away. You try to survive as long as you can until you may probably reach a goal or until you get caught by the wall of death(don't know what you need to complete it just speculation).
The second Multiplayer of F.E.A.R 3 is Contractions. As most of you would see it, this mode is very much like Firefight in Halo or Nazi Zombies in World at War. You must try to survive as long as you can while teaming up with your teammates as you are attacked by monsters produced by Alma. You are stuck in a safehouse, and from what I read you may hav to go outside to restock on equipment and junk O_O... But this mode is very familiar to other games, but the main difference is that it has much more of a horror attribute to it.
The last two multiplayer modes are very similar so I'll put them in one section. The first of these two modes is Soul Survivor. Soul Survivor has you with 3 other players. One out of the four you must turn into a spirit/ghost. When turned into a spirit you have the familiar ability of possession like Fettel has. When one turns into a spirit, you must possess one of the enemy AIs attacking the other players, and while possessing, the spirit player must try to kill the other players. The next multiplayer mode is Soul King. You're all pretty much spirits trying to kill each other. That's pretty much it.
The multiplayer modes provide a new perspective to multiplayer. Though it does seem that you're number of companions do seem few, but I think it's due to the fact that they also want the fear factor to be pretty high while playing with your friends. It's unknown if they'll have your average Team Death Match, which I'm pretty sure they won't since F.E.A.R 3 may want to have their own uniqueness to multiplayer.

Overall I'm pretty hyped for this game. I haven't played the past two games, but I'm thinking about changing that :3
Even though I haven't played the last two games, after reading up and watching other people play on Youtube I am still excited to get this game. The gameplay looks pretty good to me, and I absolutely adore Coop. Though I hear that this game has yet to be seen as scary as F.E.A.R 1, I may find it perfect if it isn't TOO scary seeing that I have a weak constitution XD
F.E.A.R 3 or F.3.A.R comes out on June 21, and if you preorder at retailers online or offline you can get bonuses such as guns and such, but you can also find deals such as the game coming with F.E.A.R 2 Project Origins or $20 Game Credit.
I'm planning on buying this game, so hit me up if you want to play multiplayer or coop, I AM getting this on XBOX 360.
To look up more on F.3.A.R watch some videos posted here or go look at some details of the F.E.A.R franchise like I did or go look at IGN's reviews which I find very informative. There are also Cinematic Live Action trailers such as the link below to one of the trailers on Youtube that you will find impressive.

So lastly I just want to say one of F.E.A.R 3's quote which I adore very much.
Don't Face F.E.A.R Alone.
