A VR version of Five Nights At Freddy’s is coming in April.
The new game is called Five Nights At Freddy’s VR: Help Wanted and is in development from Steel Wool Studios. The game is coming in April to “PSVR, Oculus, Steam, and HTC Vive.” It is the first official VR title in the horror series.
The short announce trailer certainly looks like it does justice to the horror series. On Oculus headsets, Face Your Fears functions as an intro-to-vr-horror title and it looks like Five Nights At Freddy’s could fill that role for PSVR headsets.
For those unfamiliar, Freddy’s is a fictional pizza restaurant where the player works as a security guard. The creepy robot characters which inhabit the restaurant come to life at night and terrify the player. It is a favorite among kids and on phones, but in VR the series may have found a perfect fit. In VR it looks like you’ll go face-to-face with the terrifying creatures of the restaurant in an intimate way. The trailer shows some of the encounters players will have and they look pretty…alarming.
Steel Wool Studios is the development team behind a number of VR projects including Quar Battle for Gate 18, Mars Odyssey and Ready Player One: Battle for the Oasis. Face Your Fears on Oculus headsets is an incredibly popular title so if Steel Wool is able to capture the same feeling on PSVR they could have a major hit on their hands. We’ll of course report back as soon as we are able to try out the game.
