If you’re one of the many PC, PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 gamers that are thinking about buying Day 1 Studios’ much-anticipated F.E.A.R. 3 (AKA F.3.A.R.) game when it arrives, you might like to know a little more information about the four multiplayer modes that are included in the upcoming game.
According to Hamza CTZ Aziz from the destructoid.com website, the four modes include ‘Soul King,’ ‘Soul Survivor,’ ‘Contractions’ and ‘F***ing Run.’ After spending a bit of hands-on time with the four different modes, Hamza stated that the ‘Soul King’ mode was in fact his least favorite.
All gamers begin this mode as the Spectre (a ghost that is able to possess the bodies of humans), who unfortunately only has one simple projectile attack. However, finding and possessing humans enables the Spectre to make use of their weapons, including shotguns and assault rifles.
The overall aim of the ‘Soul King’ mode is to kill your enemies, collect their souls and end the game as the player with the most souls. Meanwhile, the ‘Soul Survivor’ mode starts off with four players in a room, where Alma randomly corrupts one of the players to convert them to the ghost side.
That corrupted player is then tasked with corrupting the remaining humans before the time runs out. ‘Contractions’ on the other hand is said to be very similar to the Call of Duty: Black Ops zombie mode. Players are tasked with defending their base against a wave of enemies.
Finally there is the ‘F***ing Run’ mode, which involves players running from checkpoint to checkpoint, while shooting enemies and attempting to avoid the ‘Wall of Death.’ You can view a preview video of the four multiplayer modes over on the destructoid.com website.
