Almost two decades after the franchise made its debut on PlayStation, Square Enix Collective and developer Sushee have announced that their Fear Effect sequel, Fear Effect Sedna will launch on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC on Tuesday March 6th, 2018.
An entirely new chapter in the series, Fear Effect Sedna is co-written by the series’ original writer and takes Hana, Rain, Glas and Deke, along with new addition Axel, into the world of Inuit mythology. Built around a third-person isometric point of view, Fear Effect Sedna combines action, stealth, and puzzle solving with animated cutscenes, crucially including the classic death cut-scenes from the original games.
Following on from Fear Effect Sedna, French studio Sushee is also working on the recently announced Fear Effect Reinvented – a remastered take on the original game released on PlayStation almost 18 years ago. Also in development for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. The combination of the two Sushee games will bring the Fear Effect IP to an audience of existing fans looking to recapture the spirit of the original games and new players who missed them the first time around.
Fear Effect Sedna features the return of the original Fear Effect’s much loved cast of characters, with an isometric viewpoint to enable players to interact with multiple characters at the same time. The gameplay his time around mixes real-time action, tactical play, stealth, and puzzles for an adrenaline-based “Fear Effect” gameplay mechanic that impacts on both attack and defense. Seamlessly implemented alongside the gameplay are animated stylistic cut-scenes, stunning environments, and those classic death cut-scenes, which us old school gamers could never forget.
