Fear Effect Reinvented Announced for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch

Square Enix Collective, Sushee, and Forever Entertainment have announced Fear Effect Reinvented.

The new game is a reboot of the original Fear Effect, and it’s coming to PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch sometime next year. Featured above, you can view the game’s announcement trailer.

Sushee, the developer behind the official crowdfunded sequel Fear Effect: Sedna, made the decision to go back to the series’ roots by reverting to fixed camera angles – a commonplace design in PlayStation 1-era games.

They’re poising the reboot as a “true-to-the-original remake” of the first Fear Effect, while also making a few modifications to make the game “more attractive to today’s players,” while also “remaining faithful to the original in terms of features.”

Further details weren’t shared.

    Sounds like a step in the right direction, Sedna doesn’t even look like Fear Effect,

    They should low key scrap Sedna and focus and making the first 2 games as a duo pack.

    I love PS1 games, but have never even heard of this. Definitely checking it out.

    Problem is that it was crowdfunded, so people would get mad if they scrapped it. Maybe they can rework it into the traditional style though.

    A new Fear Effect that doesn’t have me disappointed from the get-go like Sedna did? Sign me up.

    This might be a better idea than that isometric game a while back.

    Loved the first game. Can’t wait to run around in a towel and distract people with nudity!

    That happened in the first game, right? It’s been so long since I played. Still have it and the guide~

    Yeah… I will wait cautiously, who knows if they infuse it with SJW garbage, “more attractive to today’s players,” has me worried. As I know the original game I know there are things in it the SJW media would slam hard. Prove me wrong and make it good, and I’ll buy it… if retail that is.

    “more attractive to today’s players”

    That used to mean: “We gonna dumb things down for the casuals”

    Now it means: “We gonna make sure to remove anything that made the game interesting and unique to avoid triggering snowflakes”

    Yeah, I’ll wait for release, no way the story is getting retold without it getting butchered in the current climate.

    a lot better of an announcement than that other shit they had going on a while back.

    “while also making a few modifications to make the game “more attractive to today’s players,”!!!!? Never played the original, so I don’t know if it has tank controls! and if the original did that’s what they’re changing then, fine. but if they mean turning this into a PC mess! thene fuck this game and fuck the developers. And no, I’m not referring to personal computers when I say PC!

    so… am I the only one who only knows this game because of that one Lesbian elevator scene?

    Meh. Hannah’s boobs look smaller. And I would have preferred the more colorful cel-shaded artstyle. They should have just crowdfunded Inferno.

    I disagree. The artstyle in this looks jank.

    What…. The character models in Sedna look like a natural evolution from the PS1 graphics to what the characters would look like in todays visuals. This version of Hannah just looks like a bad cosplayer.

    I’m talking gameplay, not visuals.

    well i can agree with that sorta, shame about the lack of cell shading.
    however, i prefer this over that crowfunded thing they had going with the odd camera angle.

    I am just going to assume this is shit until they prove me wrong.

    “I’m a lesbian because men are problematic shitlords.”

    Not that they’ll go that far (I hope) but irony is a lesbian couple done for titlation in this game was more believable than the shit Mass Effect and walking simulators drag out.
