A Korean-developed free-to-play game, ''F.E.A.R. Online'', was released by Aeria Games in October 2014. The game uses the ''F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin'' engine and has a ''VideoGame/CombatArms''-style free-to-play model with a crafting system and a number of weapons, items, and characters that can be purchased with in-game gold or real money. The game features both PVP (team deathmatch and various other modes), and a 4-player co-op mode taking place immediately after the ending of ''F.E.A.R. 2'' and featuring a team of Delta Force operatives fighting their way through Fairport in the wake of Dark Signal's failed attempt to stop Alma.

Alma. It was shut down in May 2015 due to poor reviews and a lack of support.

* Idiot Ball: in F.E.A.R. Perseus Mandate, so your enemy's trying to steal your mother's DNA to clone and experimente with it and a guy's trying to stop him... The obvious solution for Fettel is to move all your soldiers to fight the good guy.

* OneHitKill: Several of the Melee attacks on weaker foes, including the ''sliding ankle kick of death.''
** Fettel has a unique one wherein if you psychic lift an enemy and then use a melee attack while close to them, they simply ''[[LudicrousGibs explode.]]''
* OneManArmy: The Point Man, as well as Becket. Holiday also gets this status in the Xbox 360 port, where he manages to take down several dozen Replicas, multiple Heavy Armors, and an Assassin without any slow-mo powers.

* OurGhostsAreDifferent: Ghosts are capable of forming physical bodies, [[spoiler: becoming pregnant, and bearing children.]] It is not made clear if this is possible for all ghosts in the setting or simply something that Alma can do, considering her RealityWarper powers.

As the game starts, the player takes on the role of F.E.A.R.'s new [[NoNameGiven Point Man]]. In his first briefing, F.E.A.R. learns of a secret military project, Perseus, being run by [[MegaCorp Armacham Technology Corporation]] in the city of Fairport. The project, the development of a battalion of [[PsychicPowers telepathically]] controlled "[[CloningBlues Replica]]" {{Super Soldier}}s, [[GoneHorriblyWrong has gone haywire]]. The Replica battalion's telepathic commander, an unstable operative named Paxton Fettel, has led them in an uprising. It is now F.E.A.R.'s job to hunt down and kill Fettel, ending the uprising. [[FromBadToWorse But things start to get complicated]] when Alma, a little girl in a red dress, shows up and starts annihilating F.E.A.R.'s 1st SFOD-D ("Delta Force," a real-life U.S. military special operations unit) escorts, then vanishes.

vanishes. It's now up to the Point Man to find and kill Fettel, but this proves to be a much more difficult task than originally envisioned as Alma begins to harass Point Man for unknown reasons.

** A subtle one in the intro to ''2''. At the end of the hallucination/NightmareSequence, Becket sees Alma's music box next to him in the APC... Right where [[spoiler: [[BrainwashedAndCrazy Keegan]]]] is sitting in reality.

* BookEnds: One of the first things the player hears from Fettel in the first game is "They deserved to die. They ''all'' deserved to die." One of the last things Fettel says during TheStinger in the Point Man's ending in the third game is a repetition of those lines.
