F.E.A.R. Multiplayer For F.R.E.E.

Quote:
Sierra Entertainment today announced that the multiplayer component from the award winning PC title F.E.A.R. (First Encounter Assault Recon), has been renamed F.E.A.R. Combat, and will be made available to the public as a free download on Thursday August 17th, 2006.

F.E.A.R. Combat is the complete multiplayer component of F.E.A.R. and includes all the updates, additional official maps and additional official game modes all in one downloadable file. F.E.A.R. Combat users will be able to play against the owners of the retail version of F.E.A.R. as well as the other F.E.A.R. Combat users.

F.E.A.R. Combat features:

* 10 Multiplayer Game modes.
* 19 Multiplayer Maps.
* 12 different weapons.
* Punkbuster support for anti cheat support.
* The capability to download user generated content.

To play F.E.A.R. Combat, consumers simply go to www.joinfear.com and register to obtain their free, Combat keycode. When the file is made available for download on Aug 17th 2006, consumers can install, enter their keycode, and get ready to join F.E.A.R. Combat!
Check it out. Something like this would cost about $40 on XBoxLive and be in 2 downloadable packages.

All games should be free.

I finally found a game to replace Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory.

Yeah, our ping will be like 700. We'll shoot and 4seconds later it'll register. But sadly you arent standing there anymore so you die twice when you respawn because of a bullet shot earlier thats finally made it to you.

Online games over countries are best if they're RTS games.

the ping is half the fun!
u hold a button down, and after what seems like a "time freeze" function, the "time unfreeze" function kicks in and ur somewhere completely different! talk about bullet time.

this phenomenon using smiley faces:
