Cold Fear was a survival horror third-person shooter video game developed by Darkworks and published by Ubisoft. It was released in North America on March 15th, 2005 for the PlayStation 2.
It was Ubisoft’s first horror game, and Darkworks’ second game, after Alone in the Dark: The New Nightmare in 2001. The game is centered on Tom Hansen, a member of the United States Coast Guard, who comes to the aid of a Russian whaler in the Bering Strait and finds a mysterious virus has turned the crew into zombie-like creatures. Discovering the involvement of both the Russian mafia and the CIA, Hansen sets out to ensure the virus doesn’t reach land.
The game was a commercial failure; by February 2006, it had sold only 70,000 units across all platforms in the United States.
Cheers & Game On!
