In an avalanche of PSVR news today, Sony announced that Five Nights at Freddy’s is coming to PSVR. acclaimed survival horror video game. It’s not exclusive though, as the VR adaptation is officially coming to PSVR, Oculus and HTC Vive in April 2019.
The game, dubbed Five Nights at Freddy’s: Help Wanted is a collection of VR experiences based on the original Five Nights at Freddy’s games, “but it includes several new experiences as well,” Steel Wool Studios’ co-founder Jason Topolski says in a PlayStation blog post.
It isn’t a simple port of the original game either, Topolski says:
“For the first time, characters and situations from the entire Five Nights at Freddy’s series can be experienced in VR. Some games that seem familiar may surprise you in new terrifying ways.”
The studio says that players will be able to use either DualShock 4 or PS Move motion controllers to interact with the door and light controls in the offices, pick up objects in the repair games, press buttons on the video switcher, solve puzzles, and activate your flashlight. We assume other VR platforms will also focus on motion controller support.
The game will also include new features the the series, including collectibles such as plushies, bobbleheads, action figures and more.
The game was built in partnership by Lionsgate, Scottgames, Steel Wool Games, and Striker Entertainment. The game is said to launch on all supported platforms sometime in April.
