Beginning May 21, F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin fans will be able to download the new “Armored Front” map pack for a whole new multiplayer experience for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStationNetwork for the PLAYSTATION3 computer entertainment system. The Armored Front Map Pack consists of two maps, Decoy and Conductor, as well as four unique character heads to swap out.
Conductor Map: Push your way out of a train yard into the vast and open-ended junction station built around a turntable. EPAs will battle their way through the ground floor, as infantry can choose to either support from below or scale the heights of the station and engage in long-range combat.
Decoy Map: Put your skill to the test in this full-scale training ground for Replica soldiers! Once a controlled arena for combat exercises, now it is under a full-blown assault for control between Replica and ATC. Watch out for ambushes, and don’t let the pop-up target dummies fool you!
Character Heads: Four unique heads to customize your character.
“Armored Front” is the second of three robust DLC packs for F.E.A.R.2: Project Origin; the "Toy Soldiers” map pack launched April 16 and the next pack is slated for summer 2009. A premium theme and picture pack for Xbox 360, as well as a theme for PLAYSTATION 3 are also available. The “Armored Front” Map pack will be available for 540 Microsoft Points through Microsoft Marketplace and £4.39 through the PlayStationNetwork.
In F.E.A.R.2: Project Origin a routine assignment to locate the president of Armacham Technology Corporation in connection with an unfolding hostage crisis turns into a desperate battle for survival after an explosion decimates the city and unleashes Alma Wade, the terrifying supernatural menace at the center of Armacham’s highly classified Project Origin. As Alma’s power swells out of control, special forces Sgt. Michael Becket and his squad must battle through an apocalyptic landscape of shattered buildings and buckled streets in search of clues for how to destroy her. The more Becket learns about Armacham’s secret experiments and reckless agenda, the more he begins to suspect that he’s somehow linked to the crisis and may be the only one capable of averting total disaster. F.E.A.R.2: Project Origin is rated “M” for Mature and is available now for Xbox 360, PLAYSTATION 3 and Games for Windows.
