In Cold Fear the player takes on the role of Tom Hansen, a former soldier now in the employ of the United States Coast Guard who has been sent in to investigate a mysterious Russian whaler Eastern Spirit in the middle of the Bering strait. The beginning cut-scenes show a SEAL team under the orders of a CIA agent, identifying the ship and trying to discover its cargo. Unfortunately, the SEAL squad is slaughtered mercilessly by an unknown threat. CIA agent Bennett then orders any government vessel in the vicinity of the Russian boat to investigate, and it is Hansen's ship which responds.
Cold Fear requires at least a Radeon X700 Series or GeForce 6800 Series 128MB to meet recommended requirements running on high graphics setting, with 1080p resolution. This hardware should achieve 60FPS. 512 MB will also be needed to achieve the Cold Fear rec specs and get 60FPS. Another thing to consider is the DirectX capability of your GPU. Cold Fear needs a GPU capable of running DirectX 9. We suggest a 15 year old PC to play smoothly.
