4 years ago, 5th December 2012: GameSpy shut down the FEAR Master Server.
That day (late night), we released the FEAR Launcher as a temporal workaround to continue playing.
One month later, the updated SEC2 version was launched, connecting to the new FEAR Master Server (hosted by FEAR-Community.org), and fixing the ingame Functionality to host, search and connect servers.
“We continue working in the maintenance, bugfix and promotion of the game, by providing downloads for the gamefiles and Game Keys, tutorials, tips and support.
Our goal is to keep this free game alive.”
