After two decades since it made its debut on the PlayStation, Square Enix Collective have announced the release date for the Fear Effect sequel, Fear Effect Sedna.
Fear Effect Sedna is coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One on March 6th, priced at £15.99.
It is a entirely new chapter in the series and is co-written by the series’ original writer. It takes Hana, Rain, Glas and Deke – along with new addition Axel – into the world of Inuit mythology. Built around a third-person isometric point of view, Fear Effect Sedna combines action, stealth, and puzzle solving with animated cutscenes – crucially including the classic death cutscenes from the original games. Benjamin Anseaume, founder of Sushee stated:
Fear Effect Sedna generated an amazing response from fans of the series when we ran our Kickstarter, and with the support of Square Enix Collective and co-producer Forever Entertainment, we’re excited to see just what they make of it come release.
Developing Fear Effect Sedna has really brought the team here at Sushee together, and that’s exactly what the gameplay is about. Each character has different special weapons and the game includes a paused tactical mode to control different team members at the same time and give orders to work as a team. It’s an approach that taps into the core structure of the original games but, with the technology available to us today, feels very 2018.
Phil Elliott, Director of Indie Publishing at Square Enix West also added:
When Square Enix launched Collective, one of the goals was to see if opening up some of our established IP to benefit indie studios, and it’s great to see how Sushee have gone about the task. Fear Effect Sedna is going to be an important chapter in our story for that very reason, and we think 2018 is going to be the year when gamers finally reconnect with the world of Hana, Rain, Glas and Deke.
