Scott Cawthon has once again seemingly hinted one release date (August 8 originally) and surprised fans with a sudden release weeks earlier than expected. Late on July 23, Five Nights at Freddys’ 4 was placed on Steam for sale. With little news or announcement, this has already grown to a viral fanfare that is now flooding Youtube. In addition Cawthon has announced a movie deal with Warner Brother’s for a FNaF movie (we’re not sure how this works as a movie either). After Five Night’s 3 was released, many fans felt none of the major plot threads came to a satisfying conclusion. Others thought that while the defensive options in FNaF 3 were more varied, the singular enemy you face was a weaker challenge than presented in previous games.
We are planning to bring you a full review of Five Night’s at Freddy’s 4, but from what we have seen so far this is bigger more expanded game than before. All the old enemies are back in action, but much better animated and far deadlier than ever before. Each day is broken up with a twisted 8-bit game montage, as well as unique mini-game involving Plushtrap (who I thought was Springtrap at first), mixed in with the familiar nightly attacks, makes this by far the biggest Five Night’s game yet. The stage is set for a morbid conclusion to this unique PC cult hit series.
