Sony scallywags might remember Fear Effect, the horror shooter that came out on the PSone a full 17 years ago. Quite good, it was, and now it’s getting a remake. Named Fear Effect Reinvented, it’s coming to PC in 2018. If you never played the original, I’ll explain you control three mercenaries shooting and rolling their way through Hong Kong in search of a triad boss’s daughter, who they intend to kidnap and ransom, when events turn a bit supernatural.
The remake is a collaboration between Square Enix’s Collective indie scheme and developers Sushee, who are also working on real-time tactics spin-off Fear Effect: Sedna. The team want the remake to stay “as close as possible” to the original Fear Effect, keeping the gameplay and story but updating the graphics and tank controls.
