I’m not the biggest fan of the horror genre. It’s not that there aren’t any horror games that I don’t enjoy, there are just a lot of other games I’d rather play. I tend to leave the horror games to my fellow Enthusiast, Andrew Gonzalez, who is a real aficionado of the genre. Despite not being a huge horror fan, one series that I have heard of is Five Night at Freddy’s. The franchise finds you being a security guard at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza where there are creepy, animatronic robots that cause you trouble. Well, if you are a fan of horror games or of the FNAF franchise, then you will be interested to know that the first four games in the series are coming to Xbox One in a couple of days. There are no details on pricing yet but the Xbox Store listings confirm a release date of 29th November.
If you are unfamiliar with the franchise here’s a trailer for the first game along with the official description –
Welcome to your new summer job at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, where kids and parents alike come for entertainment and food as far as the eye can see! The main attraction is Freddy Fazbear, of course; and his two friends. They are animatronic robots, programmed to please the crowds! The robots’ behavior has become somewhat unpredictable at night however, and it was much cheaper to hire you as a security guard than to find a repairman.
From your small office you must watch the security cameras carefully. You have a very limited amount of electricity that you’re allowed to use per night (corporate budget cuts, you know). That means when you run out of power for the night- no more security doors and no more lights! If something isn’t right- namely if Freddy bear or his friends aren’t in their proper places, you must find them on the monitors and protect yourself if needed!
Can you survive five nights at Freddy’s?
