If you’re looking for a cannibal with telekinetic properties to come back from the grave to be your Valentine, look no further. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has confirmed that Paxton Fettel, star of the F.E.A.R. series, is available.
…by that, we mean “as a playable character” in F.E.A.R. 3, of course!

We’ve known for a while that Fettel, as well as his brother, Point Man, would be playable in the game’s divergent co-op mode, but today, WBIE have confirmed you can get your hands on both characters in single-player mode, too.
You’ll start the game as Point Man – but as soon as you’ve completed each level, the conniving Fettel is unlocked – and while they share DNA, the two could not be less alike.
For gamers, playing as Point Man relies on his super-soldier abilities, while Paxton focusses largely on his supernatural skills. Fettel can suspend, stun, crush or even possess his enemies – bringing a totally different experience to the game, even though the level itself is exactly the same.
Familiarise yourself with Mr. Fettel in this new video, or maybe peruse his latest snapshots:
I do wonder if the inherent sibling rivalry between the two will come into play. Remember that you – as Point Man – killed Fettel in the original game! Things could get interesting…
So – play through as one, then try it as his brother, and see which one you prefer. F.E.A.R. 3 is set to spook gamers in May 2011, for Xbox 360, PS3 and Windows PC.
