Welcome back to Preorder Stories, where I chronicle some of the coolest preorder promotions from throughout gaming’s history. In 2005, Monolith, riding high from the success of No One Lives Forever, developed one of the coolest PC demos for an upcoming game I had seen in quite a while, FEAR. The hype from the demo was so impressive in fact, an empty box preorder campaign was launched at Best Buy. It included a special DVD with early episodes of content that would be included with the Collector’s Edition, and download codes for access to the multiplayer beta.

Let’s take a closer look at this preorder, and why it meant so much to me.

FEAR is out on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
