Popular fright-inducing iOS franchise Five Nights at Freddy’s will see its next release debut on Halloween.
It was announced that the game would be known as Five Nights at Freddy’s 4: The Final Chapter via scottgames.com. Though considering the franchise itself is already a trilogy despite only launching in August 2014, whether it will actually be the final edition of the game is up for debate.
Five Nights at Freddy’s is a survival horror series in which you play the hapless security guard of a pizza restaurant, trying desperately to survive five night shifts in a row. Sounds uneventful? Well, luckily there are a range of murderous animatronic toys hanging around to keep you on your toes. Each ‘night’ lasts about five minutes in the game – and the aim is to reach the end of the shift without being snuffed out by one of the toys.
The third incarnation – which was supposedly its last – of the Freddy’s series is set 30 years on from the previous games, with the murderous happenings at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza a thing of mere legend. To cash in on these folk stories, a local entrepreneur created “Fazbear’s Fright: the Horror Attraction”, a haunted house homage to the original pizzeria.
The games have proved so popular that a movie is already in the works based on the game after Warner Bros. bought the rights.
