Earlier we reported how a Steam version of F.E.A.R. 2 : Project Origin leaked to BitTorrent sites before the game’s official release. Pirates who downloaded this release were unable to play it as the game was protected by a release date check as well as an encryption key in Valve’s Steam protection. However, a group of pirates from a Russian underground community have apparently found a way to get the leaked release working using a combination of hacked Steam tools and leaked Steam encryption keys.

UPDATE: F.E.A.R. 2 Project Origin-DIE has been released (Read about it here). F.E.A.R.2.Project.Origin.CRACK.UNPACK has also been released. Some have reported that certain versions of FEAR 2 does not contain blood and gore. In case you cannot see blood or can’t blow up soldiers, try the fix mentioned in this article.  

Steam underground community

The forum we are talking about is CS.RIN.RU a community that specializes in hacked Steam clients, non-Steam (cracked) game servers, standalone Steam games, emulators, patches, loaders, launchers, game updates, tutorials, etc. CS.RIN.RU’s F.E.A.R. 2 : Project Origin thread now explains in detail the method to get the leaked version up and running. Apparently it involves combining .NRG, .SIM & .SID files from the leaked P2P release (FEAR 2-Project Origin READNFO-TL) with tools such as REVOLUTION LOADER V2, SimPack and the latest Steam client. Commands to inject Steam encryption keys to the leaked version of F.E.A.R. 2 are also given in the thread.

Update: Just like Burnout Paradise, it seems that online multiplayer works with the leaked/cracked release of F.E.A.R. 2.

For solutions to FEAR 2 problems (non crack related) and performance tweaks, please refer to this article (also, this tells you how to enable blood and gore in the game).

Note: Please do not post or request download links to cracks, key generators, hacked or cracked steam clients or other tools here. We are a news blog only – not a warez site. Do not ask for step by step instructions on how to crack the game– if you find the instructions in CS.RIN.RU too complex, wait for a scene release which probably will have a custom one click installer. Also keep in mind that if you have a legitimate Steam account, using a hacked client or playing ripped games may result in unpredictable scenarios. Proceed at your own risk.
