After a long absence, the first trailer for the Fear Effect remake was unveiled at Gamescon 2022. Also announced is an ambiguous launch window. 

Fear Effect Reinvented is the highly anticipated remake of the cult classic that was released for the PlayStation back in 2000. The supernatural thriller follows three mercenaries looking for the daughter of a triad boss in a cyberpunk Hong Kong. However not all is what appears as sinister forces are at work.
