He’s done it again! Scott Cawthon has pulled another FNaF2 and released his latest game even earlier than anticipated, unleashing the house-bound horrorfest that is Five Nights at Freddy’s 4 on the unsuspecting public just over two weeks early.
The new title seems to take a different approach with its story compared with its predecessors, as you now play as a child fending off the animatronics that have “followed him home”. In Mr. Cawthon’s own words:
In this last chapter of the Five Nights at Freddy’s original story, you must once again defend yourself against Freddy Fazbear, Chica, Bonnie, Foxy, and even worse things that lurk in the shadows. Playing as a child whose role is yet unknown, you must safeguard yourself until 6am by watching the doors, as well as warding off unwanted creatures that may venture into your closet or onto the bed behind you.
The game’s listing on Steam has brought with it a few new screenshots, giving us a better look at the house the game takes place in as well as a shot fully showing off mini-Springtrap/Golden Bonnie.
If the initial Steam reviews are anything to go by, even the title screen of this one’s particularly freaky – needless to say YouTube accounts everywhere will be buzzing with Let’s Plays and (hopefully) renewed fear at the animatronic characters that first terrified us just under a year ago pretty soon.
Personally I can only see myself buying it before getting spooked and never making it past the second night, but that’s just me.
Five Nights at Freddy’s 4 is available now on Steam, priced at £5.59.
