The original Fear Effect was an unique survival horror title from Eidos Interactive which broke ground in 2000 when it was released for the original Playstation. Now thanks to the Square Enix Collective, a new generation will be able to experience the game with new enhanced graphics.
Being handled by French studio Sushee, the same team who is bringing the upcoming new chapter in the series – Fear Effect Sedna – which was funded via Kickstarter. It was actually due to the fact that Fear Effect Sedna had done so well that we’ll be seeing the new remake happen!
“As support for Fear Effect Sedna quickly built up steam, we realized how much love Fear Effect as a franchise still had amongst gamers,” offered Benjamin Anseaume, founder of Sushee.
“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 not, however. Those original fixed camera angles will remain in place, albeit playing host to some brand new high-definition visuals.”
Fear Effect: Reinvented will be coming to PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch sometime in 2018.
