Freddy Fazbear and his animatronic friends are jump-scaring their way onto PlayStation VR in Five Nights at Freddy’s VR: Help Wanted, according to an ESRB rating.
Five Nights at Freddy’s VR: Help Wanted is rated as ‘T’ for teen by the ESRB and even has a short rating summary that provides a little insight into what fans of the series can expect from FNAF’s first appearance on console.
This is a VR puzzle/horror game in which players assume the role of a repair person tasked with monitoring/repairing animatronic characters at a pizzeria. From a first-person perspective, players explore dark hallways, complete puzzles, and try to avoid menacing, malfunctioning animatronic figures. The game contains frequent screams and jump scares, with words ‘You Are Dead’ appearing after players are attacked.
Not much information is known about the new FNAF game or whether it will simply be a remake of the original, or if it will be a brand new entry in the franchise.
One part of the ESRB summary that suggests it might be a brand new entry is that the player will control a repair person unlike a security guard seen in the first Five Nights at Freddy’s.
Scott Cawthon, the creator of FNAF also hinted that the VR title may be an entirely new experience in a Steam discussion thread
If you liked repairing Funtime Freddy up-close in Sister Location, just wait until you try to do something like that in VR.
In the same thread, he also mentioned console ports of all the FNAF games and said they were about 20 per cent complete.
I’m working closely with the people at Clickteam to create new, improved, HD ports of all of the original games! They ill be released on Android, IOS, Switch, Xbox and PlayStation!
The Five Nights at Freddy’s franchise has been a horror behemoth since the original title released in 2014 and it shows no signs of slowing down. It seem that no matter where you hide, Freddy Fazbear will always find you.
