New Fear 3 trailer: “Soul King”

A new trailer for the upcoming Fear 3 shows off its “Soul King” multiplayer mode, in which players begin each round of competition as ghosts who must possess other characters and collect their rivals’ souls.

Whoever finishes with the most souls wins. There’s a reason the franchise’s title is “Fear.”

Here’s a link the video on the game’s official site. It’s pretty bloody so it may be NSFW unless your job requires you to look at gaming footage.

Fear 3′s developer is Day 1 Studios and publisher is Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.

The title is scheduled for a June 21 release for PC, PlayStation 3 and XBox 360.

New videos for Hunted and Fear 3

Here are a couple links to new videos for the forthcoming “Hunted: The Demon’s Forge” and “Fear 3.”

Developers working for inXile entertainment talk about creating the villains for Hunted in “At War With Monsters.” The game’s publisher, Bethesda Softworks, released the vid.

The second video, classily titled “F**cking Run,” is for Fear 3, developed by Day 1 studios and published by WB Games. The video shows how players must avoid antagonist Alma’s “wall of death” while playing the title’s cooperative mode. (Obvious strong language in the link. You’ve been warned, folks.)
