Today's video in our exclusive F.E.A.R. 2 Countdown Calendar looks at the design and environment.
Lead Designer Craig Hubbard and Primary Art Lead Dave Matthews scope out how Monolith used classic horror movie techniques to ratchet up the tension, as well as going on location everywhere from hospitals to nuclear plants to capture essential environment detail.
Don't forget, you can also win a copy of the game on PC, Xbox 360 or PS3.
Tomorrow, we welcome the return of F.E.A.R. 2's iconic adversary, Alma.
