2016 has been a big year for fans of horror video games, the Resident Evil 7 demo broke download records on PS4 and We Happy Few is one of the most anticipated horror games of the year. Well those who love all things creepy and spooky can add another game to get excited about, Five Nights at Freddy’s: Sister Location.
Five Nights at Freddy’s: Sister Location was teased in an announcement trailer a few months back, but until today little else was known about the newest installment in the horror franchise. The game’s Steam page went up today showing some new screenshots, a brief summary, and a release date of October 2016.
The description on the game’s Steam page doesn’t really describe the gameplay, rather it reads as a cryptic and creepy description of the game’s setting:
“Welcome to Circus Baby’s Pizza World, where family fun and interactivity go beyond anything you’ve seen at those *other* pizza places! With cutting-edge animatronic entertainers that will knock your kids’ socks off, as well as customized pizza catering, no party is complete without Circus Baby and the gang! Now hiring: Late night technician. Must enjoy cramped spaces and be comfortable around active machinery. Not responsible for death or dismemberment.”
While this description is chilling, it doesn’t indicate what type of gameplay Five Nights at Freddy’s: Sister Location will offer. From the trailer it appears that this newest installment will be returning to the tried and true formula of having the player locked in a security room with only cameras and doors for protection. However, the trailer also shows the player crawling through an air vent so it’s possible that players will be able to venture out of the security room at certain points in the game.
Whatever the final game will look like it is probably a safe bet that Five Nights at Freddy’s: Sister Location won’t be another RPG, since Five Nights at Freddy’s World was a bit of a disaster at launch. Fans of the series will just have to wait until October to see what animatronic horrors are lurking in the shadows, until then they’ll just have to play the previous games or pick up the tie-in novel to fill that Freddy sized hole in their life.
Should Five Nights at Freddy’s: Sister Location stick to the gameplay formula of its predecessors? Or should it try something new?
Five Nights at Freddy’s: Sister Location will be available for PC, Android, and iOS October 2016.
