    I wonder if you can play as the scary little gril in the red dress or her other form.:laugh:

    For those who don't know what that form is I won't spoil it. Let's just say I want use the model from the final boss stage of the game.:pimp:

    Anywho, F.E.A.R Multiplayer for FREE will be sweet.:rockout:

    Later,

    this is going to be great. but it will also be super depressing for everyone with imperfect hardware who didn't buy the game because of performance issues! lol

    does anyone know if the people who dl it for free will also be able to run the test settings part of the setup? that would make the very demanding FEAR benchmark even more mainstream than it is now, and that's good because it's more real world than 3dmark

    btw, when the camera zooms past the 2 farther guys in the test, i love to just look at their pants and the dust from the wall behind them. it's so freakin realistic!!!

    That is correct. You will be able to download the Multiplayer Game for Free. (Of course the Single Player Story will not be in the package.)

    Maybe there arent enough players who play the game online, and they want to attract more players, lol.
