F.E.A.R. 3 PC Gets Update

Day 1 Studios is issuing an update, which has been confirmed via Steam News. Among other fixes and improvements, this FEAR 3 patch resolves the frame-rate issues in the PC edition of the horror-themed FPS. Here's the whole list of changes:

  • Stuttering and jerky movement at frame rates above 30 fps is fixed!
  • Steam voice communication "push-to-talk" option is now fully supported.
  • 4-player voice chat should no longer have audio drop-outs.
  • A rare bug that would cause enemies to stop spawning in Contractions is now fixed.
  • The game will now prefer Steam cloud storage over local file system storage.
  • Network connection reliability has been improved.
  • Support for wider than 16x9 aspect ratio displays has been added to support users with non-standard display devices and spanned multi-monitor displays like AMD Eyefinity and NVIDIA Surround.
  • An "options.cfg" file has been added to the F.E.A.R. 3 install directory for advanced user customization and troubleshooting. Included in this file are options to extend the FOV on narrow aspect ratio displays, reduce or remove motion blur, and to override driver-default settings for full-screen refresh rate, overscan, letterboxing, etc.

Okay, I've got to know. In Fear 3, do we deal with Alma once and for all? Or is she waiting for another FEAR game?

I assume she's waiting for a reboot. She's not waiting actually, somebody else is. Go through the single-player campaign in FEAR 3 and you'll know.
Vader [STAFF] Jul 01 2011, 05:38 am EDT
Actually, now that I think about it, the ending in FEAR 3 points towards a possible FEAR 4, rather than a franchise reboot.

Well, the ending is quite dual, I mean The Point man goes (censored), and Fettel is (censored), and then Alma (censored) I mean it really can go either to the reboot and to part 4...

Its Alma reborn everybody. Oops did I spoil the ending..

Hey Vader, how about making a news post when Minecraft gets a patch?
Cheddar Jul 01 2011, 07:42 pm EDT
FEAR's metaphorical well is all dried up, perhaps even before FEAR 2. And I think Monolith knows that, which is exactly why they tossed aside the franchise for some other studio to pick at the leftovers.

It needs to be put to pasture now. With no plot mysteries left to reveal and Alma effectively neutered, what's the point of another game, really?
