This level is not considered a prequel, sequel, or continuation of the original game's story, but a "what if?"
What if F.E.A.R. were a tiny, inexperienced agency, whose existence was based entirely on the whim of a superstitious Army general? What if F.E.A.R. primarily investigated "anomalous" incidents-- flukes, rumors-- that no other agency cared to waste their time on? What if the F.E.A.R. crew never expected to stumble across any significant threats while chasing shadows... and then suddenly, they did?
Coincidentally, recruit, it's your first night on the job. And you think you're in for a walk in the park.
This single-player map is the first part of an original story set in the F.E.A.R. universe. Features all new setting, scripted events, and voice acting. Discover the secrets under the floorboards in a mysterious abandoned mansion. Discover what lies... BENEATH.
