The Five Nights at Freddy games were certainly successful and fun in their own right, but most of them weren’t too ambitious. These are simple games that aim to do a few jumps and nothing more. The upcoming Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach may turn things around, as its developers have promised more ambitious design and visuals, including the use of ray tracing on PC and PS5.
Of course, promises don’t matter without any evidence – fortunately, the game’s first major trailer fell on FNAF: Security Breach and it looks surprisingly legitimate. The game looks almost like Resident Evil from a first-person perspective, and is kid-friendly, which I didn’t expect. You can see the trailer for yourself below.
Five Nights at Freddy’s Returns with free game more than just a glance
Stealth and speed
Animatrons Roxy, Chica and Monty are assigned by the Pizzaplex Security Service to hunt you down, and their persecution is relentless. Enemies infiltration strategy is critical to avoiding those actively chasing you, as well as more passive staff bots, which will sound the alarm and connect to moving electronics to your location if they notice you. If they spot you, run to escape immediate danger quickly, but running is limited to your stamina, so use it wisely. Animatronics also evolves as the night progresses, which means that if you want to survive, you’ll have to adapt.
An unexpected ally
Freddy Fazbear himself is your most reliable ally, acting as your guide and protector at Pizzaplex, providing you with shortcuts, insider tips, and warnings about the challenges you will face. You can also jump into Freddy’s huge birthday cake slot, which allows you to hide and walk unnoticed. You will have to think about how and when to use Freddy, because it has a lot of power and requires frequent stops at charging stations.
Pizzaplex is extensive, and while this means more staff robots are needed for maintenance, it also means there is no shortage of shelter where you can quickly avoid it. This also means a number of security cameras that you can access on your Fazwatch, allowing you to plan your trip. You can also drop different objects, such as paint cans and toys, to get the enemy’s attention – but you have to run until they get to where you are, so make sure the distraction is worth the risk.
Some weapons can stun enemies – Faz Cam and Fazblaster. Faz Cam acts as an instant shockwave to the entire area in front of you and stuns attackers long enough to escape. Unfortunately, it has a limited number of uses as long as it requires recharging. Fazblaster has unlimited ammo, but in order to work you will need a direct shot, and it’s not that easy when a moving crocodile jumps on you.
Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach is released on PC, PS4, and PS5 on December 16th. The game will reach other platforms after a few months.
