The shooter was previously pencilled in for a 2010 release, though was ultimately pushed back to next year back in August. The game’s due out on PS3, PC and Xbox 360 platforms.

In addition, Warner’s also outlined some tasty pre-order goodies for the North American release, as detailed below.

-Amazon is offering a 12-page F.E.A.R. 3 prequel comic that details the events that transpire after the conclusion of the original game. Published by D.C. Comics, the book features a story penned by Steve Niles and is illustrated by Stefano Raffaele.

-Best Buy is offering punters exclusive access to a weapon known as The Shredder, a powerful firearm that shoots heavy rounds packed with nitrates that acts “like a fire breathing dragon in your hand.”

-Gamestop customers will receive The Hammer, the sidearm originally wielded by Paxton Fettel. The weapon packs a meaty punch, firing devastating .50 calibre rounds that inflict nearly twice as much damage as your bog-standard sidearm.
