The Original Fear Effect is Being Remade

Many have forgotten about the Fear Effect franchise that once graced the original Playstation, but it might be time to start remembering. A while back Sushee Games began working on a new entry in the franchise, Fear Effect Sedna, but something else is also in the works.

Sushee and Square Enix have revealed that a remake of the original Fear Effect is in development, titled Fear Effect Reinvented. The game will maintain its classic fixed camera angles, although minor changes will be added to make it slightly more playable. The tank-like controls will be removed to make a smoother experience.

Fear Effect Reinvented will also bring back the original’s classic cel-shaded look, on top of the violent game over screens.

Here is a brief teaser trailer for the game:

Benjamin Anseaume, founder of Sushee, shared this on the announcement:

“As support for Fear Effect Sedna quickly built up steam, we realised how much love Fear Effect as a franchise still had amongst gamers. At the same time, we realised that as well as offering established fans something new with Sedna, it would be great to introduce fresh players to Fear Effect by remaking that first great adventure. Fear Effect Reinvented will capture the same spirit and atmosphere as the original game, but it’ll bring it into the present with drastically improved visuals, tweaked controls and other exciting extras.”

Fear Effect Reinvented will arrive sometime in 2018 for Playstation 4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch.

I have been writing about games since 2012, mostly I enjoy spending my time writing about the Nintendo Switch but I also enjoy the 3DS as well as the Playstation 4. These days I cover most things from news, to reviews (I always have something in the works) to random pointless opinion pieces.
