Many people are very excited about the upcoming release of Five Nights at Freddy's 4. If you have never played any of these games before and don't know what they are about, I will give a brief introduction to the game. The critically renowned horror franchise Five Nights at Freddy's 4 is the fourth installment. The game features twenty-seven animatronics, six new, which are Withered Bonnie, Toy Freddy, Toy Chica, Rockstar Foxy, Cyberpunk Foxy and Marionette. FNAF is a horror point-and-click survival game that is pretty popular right now. It was originally released on August 8th, 2014 and has been updated almost every single week since then with new content and on different platforms.
In this game, we play as a child who is chased by the animatronics from Freddy Fazbear's Pizza from their TV screens onto our home screens to try and catch us. As before we have cameras to use forward off against the threat but there are more ways for them to come into our room this time around like ventilation shafts. There is a new mechanic as well called The Phone. In the game, you receive a phone call from Mr. Freddy Fazbear himself, who requests that you go to the office to collect a phone for him or else he will send the animatronics in with you. Once he does this it is impossible to get out of the office until midnight and everyone has fallen asleep and no one can hear you scream, unlike the original FNAF games where you were able to yell out loud and use whistles so your fellow staff members can hear what's going on.
A lot of the basic things you do in the game are jumping from one place to another, using your flashlight and trying to avoid the animatronic characters by closing doors/windows. However, some of the other features are easily a bit scarier. You can also receive calls from children when they're lost in the night, being killed, or just talking about how they want to kill you. You can also see what is outside your doors and windows depending on which room you're in. There is even a toy box where you can collect all these child calls and toys. You do various different things day by day, like going to the bathroom, taking a shower, or just checking your phone to see if there are any messages. You also have to perform some simple tasks like opening up the fridge (to eat something), putting out the fire in the office (which is very dangerous as it could kill you), or resetting the security system (which will catch all of them).
There are many other things that you can do in FNAF; these include playing mini-games from time to time such as "Fazbear's Fright Night", which unlocks when you complete a certain task. There are also different secrets that can be found throughout the game. The controls in this game are pretty easy to learn since you can use either the keyboard or your mouse to play it. Each of these has its own usefulness too; if you are using your keyboard, then you need to think about using many different keys as they will be all the same. If you want to switch between computers instantly, then you can use your mouse instead. The game was released on August 7th, 2016 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. There are no plans to be on the Wii U, as it is a spin-off of the series and cannot be included in the main game. So, stay turned on and enjoy.
