Chances are you’re either sick to death of this franchise or you’re excited for it. Personally, I was a little disappointed with the third installment, but the fourth one is promising to be the most frightening of the bunch and finally explain it all and tie up the loose ends.
Five Nights at Freddy’s 4, which is promising to be the final chapter, puts you back into familiar terror, yet it’s different. No run down pizza place, no security rooms… no, this time you play as a young child in his own home.
This time, the terror has followed you home.
In this last chapter of the Five Nights at Freddy’s original story, you must once again defend yourself against Freddy Fazbear, Chica, Bonnie, Foxy, and even worse things that lurk in the shadows. Playing as a child whose role is yet unknown, you must safeguard yourself until 6am by watching the doors, as well as warding off unwanted creatures that may venture into your closet or onto the bed behind you.
You have only a flashlight to protect yourself. It will scare away things that may be creeping at the far end of the hallways, but be careful, and listen. If something has crept too close, then shining lights in its eyes will be your end.
What role does the child play? Is this another prequel or sequel? Why are they terrorizing this child? I have so many questions, but it is too soon to find out. Or is it? Halloween (the original release date) came a little early and you can actually buy the game on Steam right now for $7.99 and find out for yourself. I can tell you from what I’ve played, running around the dark, still room as a child, checking all the doors and closet with a flashlight makes you feel far more vulnerable and scared than in the previous games.
