The inevitable has finally happened; Five Nights at Freddy’s VR is (very likely) on the way.
An ESRB listing for Five Nights at Freddy’s VR: Help Wanted popped up late last week. It’s since been taken down but Bloody Disgusting caught the below screen grab. According to the description, the game will see players repair the animatronic characters that stalk them in the main series. The listing says that game is coming to PS4, so that obviously means PSVR support is included.
It also states that the game contains ‘frequent’ jump scares. Oh good.
Five Nights at Freddy’s is a horror series notorious for its jump scares. They’ve haunted many a Youtuber. It’s been a fair few years since the series’ last numbered release, which makes this VR game feel somewhat belated. Still, we’re sure those that love a good fright are more than ready to jump into this twisted world in VR.
Given that the game was rated by the ESRB we’d expect an announcement soon. Ubisoft’s Space Junkies was outed on the platform a few weeks before the reveal, for example. We’ll likely have to wait for an official announcement before we hear about plans for PC VR and a release date etc.
This won’t be the series’ first brush with VR, though. Back in 2017 we reported that a fan was remaking the original game in VR. The experience has since been released in Early Access so, if you’re desperate to poop yourself in VR right now, you could always start there.
