5 Nights at Freddy’s VR will let gamers restore the animatronics
Would you mess with a 5 Nights at Freddy’s VR sport? I feel I in all probability would. As ambivalent as I typically am in regards to the sequence, I might see the killer animatronic home of horrors idea actually coming into its personal with the heightened immersion and sense of place that digital actuality brings to the desk.
We have had vague-ish notions of a 5 Nights VR challenge for a bit now. Once we final heard from sequence creator Scott Cawthon in November 2018, he mentioned the virtual-reality sport, now often called Assist Needed, was round 40 p.c full at Metal Wool Studios. “For those who favored repairing Funtime Freddy up-close in Sister Location, simply wait till you attempt to do one thing like that in VR, up shut, private, with these enormous animatronics which can be only one mistake away from leaping at you,” he teased on the time.
Right this moment, we’ve extra element to go on due to a abstract from the title’s ESRB score:
This can be a VR puzzle/horror sport through which gamers assume the position of a restore individual tasked with monitoring/repairing animatronic characters at a pizzeria. From a first-person perspective, gamers discover darkish hallways, full puzzles, and attempt to keep away from menacing, malfunctioning animatronic figures. The sport comprises frequent screams and bounce scares, with the phrases “You Are Lifeless” showing on display after gamers are attacked.
The important thing phrases listed here are “discover” and “puzzles.” 5 Nights at Freddy’s VR: Assist Needed is barely listed for PS4 on the ESRB web site, however I would totally anticipate it to come back to Oculus Rift and Vive as nicely.
Assist Needed is only one of many 5 Nights initiatives lined up for 2019. Notably, console ports of the originals are additionally within the works, along with a hopeful big-budget AAA challenge getting off the bottom.
