Update and Future Articles

Hi all,

We are currently working on a number of articles that we feel are essential reads for all FEAR players.

The Beginning

Hello noobs, g2a2 gods, pistol virtuosos, ASPholes and FEAR Combat lovers!

FEAR Multiplayer has existed for over 6 years and its glory days have long since passed. But a few dedicated people who strive to keep the game alive still remain. Let's be honest, this is a game that has been on life support for several years. While there is no denying that, there are a lot of people who have loved this game over the years and still haven't found anything that can compare to the thrill that FEAR Combat offered in its frantic and exhilerating multiplayer madness.

New games have come and gone, yet here we are. Some of us have moved on to COD, Battlefield, and other big name productions looking for the next big thing in multiplayer FPS. With the decline in publisher support for PC gaming over the years, we have been forced to fend for ourselves. New games come and go, but once in a blue moon we all get a FEAR craving and the feeling comes flooding back.

Let's cut to the chase. It's time to breathe life back in to a game we are all passionate about. Let's hop in some pubs, play some 1v1s, and scrim with our old friends, teammates, enemies and rivals. Let's drop any past animosity and stand united for the love of the game.

What we want to accomplish:

  1. Increase activity in FEAR Combat.
  2. Get FEAR Veterans, both pubbers and pros, to play the game.
  3. Encourage new players to play FEAR and teach them how to improve.
  4. Build a community of  diverse and positive-minded individuals who want to help improve the game.
  5. Spread the word on the game and encourage our friends, family, colleagues to play it.
  6. Most importantly: Play the game and have fun.

What we are offering:

  1. A source for all things needed to get FEAR Combat and be playing as soon as possible.
  2. A newbie's guide to FEAR Combat.
  3. Pooling our efforts to build a new FEAR community and joining forces with existing groups.
  4. New content.

Articles on Essential Tweaks: 

  1. Optimizing FEAR Graphics Settings
  2. Mouse Settings and custom controls used by different veteran FEAR players.
  3. Frame Rate Limiting for a smoother gaming experience.
  4. Game setting recommendations based on our collective experience.

Quick Start for Newbies:

A Place to Play:

Please come and play at our public CTF server. New players and veterans alike are welcome. Just enjoy the game. If activity is deemed to be high enough, we may also rent a private server for 1v1s and scrims.

Some Thank Yous:

We'd also like to give a shout out to the people who have been keeping this game alive and improving the overall user experience for a game that has been abandoned by its creators. Thanks to Phreeze for all the hard work on the SEC2 server shield anti-cheat solution, Fred.CPP for his hard work mapping and just being a nice helpful guy willing to help out those in need.

MXT and RAW clans both have good resources for those new to the game and the guys at Fear-Community have done an excellent job of hosting the new keygen system and linking to mirrors to the FEAR Combat game download and an expidited patch that updates the game to 1.08 faster than the official patch provided by Monolith.

Now let's get out there and play some FEAR!
