F.E.A.R.2 DLC and Patch Info
Yesterday Monolith sent over a little clarification in regards to the "Toy Soldier" map pack for F.E.A.R.2: Project Origin. Unfortunately, as of this writing, the upcoming DLC is NOT for the PC version: "We are aware that there has been some confusion regarding the upcoming F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin “Toy Soldier” map pack. As has always been intended by Monolith Productions and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, the content will be available free-of-charge in mid-April on Xbox LIVE Marketplace for Xbox 360 and PlayStation Network for the PLAYSTATION 3." Apparently, there will actually be a map pack for the PC version, however the release date and details were not available. Additionally, there's a new patch over on Steam serving up a hefty list of additions and fixes.
