20 years after Square-Enix released the original Fear Effect game, its sequel releases onto home consoles and for PC.
Titled Fear Effect Sedna, the game was co-written by the series’ original writer and focuses on characters Hana, Rain, Glas, and Deke as they take their first steps into the world of Inuit mythology. The game also introduces a brand new character Axel, as well as an isometric view point that cements the combination of action, stealth, and puzzle solving with animated cutscenes. Furthermore, fans of the series should be happy to know that Sedna retains the classic death cutscenes from the original Fear Effect games.
“It feels great to breathe new life in an IP that gamers still had a lot of love for, even almost two decades on from its debut,” comments Benjamin Anseaume, founder of Sushee. “Fear Effect Sedna managed to garner that community during its Kickstarter campaign and, now with the invaluable backing of Square Enix Collective and co-producer Forever Entertainment, it’s time to tell a new tale with characters those fans will find so familiar.”
With Fear Effect Sedna's release now a reality, developer Sushee says they will now turn their attention to making a remastered version of the original game called Fear Effect Reinvented.
Fear Effect Sedna is available now on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC for $19.99.
