Fear 2: Project Origin - Armored Front Map Pack coming on May 21
On May 21 fans of Fear 2: Project Origin can download the Armored Front map pack that is supposed to deliver a new multiplayer experience to the Xbox 360 and the Playstation Network.
The Armored Front map pack contains the two new maps Decoy and Conductor as well as four new character heads. The press release describes the new features as follows:
• Conductor Map: Push your way out of a train yard into the vast and open-ended junction station built around a turntable. EPAs will battle their way through the ground floor, as infantry can choose to either support from below or scale the heights of the station and engage in long-range combat.
• Decoy Map: Put your skill to the test in this full-scale training ground for Replica soldiers! Once a controlled arena for combat exercises, now it is under a full-blown assault for control between Replica and ATC. Watch out for ambushes, and don't let the pop-up target dummies fool you!
• Character Heads: Four unique heads to customize your character.
Armored Front is the second of three downloadable content packages for Fear 2: Project Origin. The Toy Soldiers Map Pack was released in April, while the next pack is scheduled for summer 2009. Furthermore there is a Premium Theme for the Xbox 360 and a Picture Pack for the Playstation 3. The Armored Front Map Pack will be available for 540 Microsoft Points at the Microsoft Marketplace and for 5.49 Euros in the Playstation Network.
It hasn't been announced yet if the Armored Front Map Pack will be released for the PC, too, but this is most likely to happen. If you want to know more about Fear 2: Project Origin, you might want to take a look at our Fear 2 CPU and GPU benchmarks or at the Fear 2 widescreen check.
