The 2nd expansion pack to the hit game F.E.A.R. finds the player leading an alternative F.E.A.R team tasked with investigating the Perseus project at Armacham facilities. For this mission you are partnered with Captain David Raynes and Lt. Steven Chen, who do their best to assist you throughout the campaign.

In addition to the weapons from the first two F.E.A.R games, in Perseus Mandate the player has access to a Grenade Launcher, a Lightning Gun and an "Advanced" Rifle, all which will be necessary to dispatch a tough new cast of bad guys.

The game's action and horror elements are tied to a plot filled with backstabs and double-crosses as senator, his lackey and a group of shadowy mercenaries clash in their journey to unlock the mysteries revealed in the previous F.E.A.R games.

Unlike the previous expansion, this title can be played stand-alone and does not require the original game.

German version

Various blood and gore effects were removed in the German version.


In one of the levels, The Sergeant goes through a subway to reach the surface, where he appears at an airplane crash site. This is the same spot that appeared in the first expansion, Extraction Point, when The Pointman (protagonist of the first game and the first expansion) was entering the subway. It should also be noted that The Sergeant was there before The Pointman, as the Replicas are still deactivated. In the same level, while The Sergeant is still in the subway/tunnels, the crash can be heard, and a subsequent quake noticed. This is the only place that is visited multiple times throughout the series.

The Sergeant

Although players aren't supposed to see the face of the protagonist, the Sergeant actually has a fully made face model. It can be viewed when accessing the game files.

VES Advanced Rifle

The VES Advanced Rifle (a new weapon found in F.E.A.R.: Perseus Mandate) is a fictional gun, but is based on the XM8.
