Fear Effect getting modern ports in 2025

Fear Effect

Limited Run Games has announced modern ports for the original Fear Effect game, in collaboration with IP holder Square Enix.

Fear Effect is coming to Windows PC (via Steam), Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PS5 sometime in 2025. This is the first time the game is being ported to modern platforms.

Originally developed by Kronos Digital Entertainment, Fear Effect was released back in 2000 for the original PlayStation. It got a prequel, Fear Effect: Retro Helix, with a remake planned back in 2017 but it ultimately got canceled.

Here’s a brief blurb on the game, plus a new trailer:

A lost classic finally returns. Fear Effect challenged assumptions on game aesthetics and art style when it debuted on PlayStation, and decades later its extraordinary blend of cell-shading and motion video still dazzles the eye… and the mind. Gunplay and magic meet in this groundbreaking action/adventure coming to a console near you in 2025.
