Fear Effect: Sedna Launches March 6

Forever Entertainment and developer Sushee have announced the release date for Fear Effect Sedna.

The Square Enix-licensed sequel will launch across PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch on March 6th. Featured above, you can view a new trailer for the game.

Here’s a rundown on the game:

Be part of a new Fear Effect adventure with Fear Effect Sedna, a new game in the classic series made popular on the original PlayStation console. With a whole new story, and shifting to a pausable real-time tactical action style, players will be able to control the team strategically and tackle enemies and puzzles alike.

Fear Effect Sedna is set four years after the events of the original Fear Effect game, and things have changed for the team. Hana, freed from the Triad, lives with Rain in Hong Kong and works as an occasional mercenary, while Deke has grown apart from them since Glas returned to the US.

Hana accepts a small mission for a shadowy organization asking for her services. Her target: a mysterious ancient statuette held by the Chinese ambassador in France. She sees it as a good opportunity to visit her birthplace… But this ‘easy’ mission is about to lead Hana to something way bigger than she expected.

Meanwhile Glas is approached by a client who catches his attention enough that he soon sets out for Greenland.

How will these events bring the old team back together?

Fear Effect Sedna is dedicated to recreating the atmosphere and characters from the original Fear Effect. However, while there are familiar aspects of the game to previous incarnations of the franchise, you’ll find yourself immersed in a completely unique and new world with Fear Effect Sedna – one that will appeal to fans both old and new.

Key Features:

  • New environments in isometric view: Explore the deep caves of Greenland, abandoned scientific complexes, underwater stations and ethereal realms based on Inuit mythology.
  • A real-time tactical action game: Exploit your heroes’ special abilities and combine them to maximize your team’s effectiveness in attacks.
  • A deep and mature story: Learn more about Fear Effect’s iconic characters’ past as they delve into this new mystery.
  • Explore a whole new culture: Myths from the Inuit people are imbued with power of the elements and the cold sea. Meet and fight unexpected creatures from the spirit realm!

The launch of Fear Effect Sedna arrives 18 years after the original Fear Effect for PlayStation. There’s a remake for the original game planned titled Fear Effect Reinvented, and it’s set for a release across PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch.

    I had no idea this was coming out so soon. I’ll keep an eye on it to see if it handles the series well enough.

    I loved the first game so much as a kid and liked Retro Helix a lot. I just wonder if this series can keep it’s charm in the current climate that hates this stuff. I had to hear an awful lot about how the advertising for Retro Helix was offensive and I’m sure things like fighting in a towel and using nudity to distract people would result in a controversy now.

    Crazy soon. Excited to get it on Switch.

    Are they still doing the remakes as well?

    I really hope they don’t CURRENT YEAR the fuck out of this series. I would very much like to purchase and play through them again. Not happening if they cuck it up though.

  • More intrested in the remake.

    bisexual femme fatales were considered girl power in the 90’s/early 2000’s, nowadays its “problematic” because it appeals to men. Gotta current year it up with square jawed sterile ball busters.

    Is it sad that I now see “current year” as an insult?

  • porkbun

    They were pretty vague about it when people asked them how they would handle the fanservice stuff. IIRC they basically gave a BS nonanswer that tried to appeal to both sides.

  • ProxyDoug

    What a downgrade

  • Albel Nox

    looks like sloppy work from gameplay… not what i was expecting

  • TheOnceAndFutureKing

    its still going to be in the game, just with more of an emphasis on romance
