Five Nights at Freddy’s Augmented Reality Game Set for Fall Release
The monstrously popular Five Nights at Freddy‘s series is making the jump to the real world. Today, Illumix and FNaF creator Scott Cawthon announced the fall release of Five Nights at Freddy’s AR: Special Delivery — an augmented reality game that injects the series’ creepy animatronic creatures into your very own surroundings.
“Augmented Reality offers new ways for players to interact and engage with their favorite franchises by blending real-world environments, fictional characters, and innovative gameplay,” said Kirin Sinha, CEO and Founder of Illumix. “With Five Nights at Freddy’s AR: Special Delivery, we wanted to evolve beyond the traditional AR-optional geolocation gameplay and deliver a more meaningful AR experience by having AR as the core component of the game.”
Five Nights at Freddy’s AR: Special Delivery will make monsters appear in player’s homes, though details are light on how the game plays exactly. It’s highly likely that there will be some story elements and objectives, rather than the game simply superimposing aimless monsters in the real world, but we’ll have to wait to confirm. The game is due for release on iOS and Android devices.
Excited fans of the series can keep an eye on fnafar.com to pre-register for access to the game sometime soon.
Five Nights at Freddy’s VR: Help Wanted is the latest FNaF game, releasing last May for PC VR headsets and PlayStation VR. Maybe soon we’ll hear about the progress of the film adaptation that’s in the works…
