If you thought the heart stopping horror game Five Nights At Freddy’s couldn’t get any worse, I have some bad news for you.
Five Nights At Freddy’s has announced its sequel for 2015, but what would be a sequel without some sort of twist? Those trustworthy doors that slowly drained your power are now gone. The animatronics have been “updated” and duplicates of the originals have been added. In the door’s place is the option to wear Freddy Fazzbear’s old animatronic head. Not only are you clinging to your flashlight, hoping that Bonnie won’t show up in front of the office door for the upteenth time, it is assumed that you are now wandering instead of being stationary in the office.
The old animatronics we believed would be put out of commission for the sequel are still active and have seperate 2.0 versions. That makes eight enemies to watch out for. On top of that, the revised originals don’t look quite revised. Bonnie’s entire face has been torn off, her arm also in wired tatters. Chica is not in any better condition, her leg replaced with a metal one and her eyes sagged. Freddy doesn’t seem like he’s changed from what we see in the trailer, and Foxy only has minor changes. Foxy’s hooked hand and endoskeleton legs were clear indicators that it was originally in bad conditions, and the only noticable changes are to Foxy’s ear and suit. The fur on one of Foxy’s ears has been completely torn off and its suit has been ripped further to show more of the beautiful mechanic endoskeleton we all love to see.
Now that the doors are gone, are the animatronics just set to wander, leaving you helpless? That’s what I thought, until the last scene of the FNAF 2 trailer was shown. Foxy leaped to attack you from the ceiling. Foxy is rumored to have the ability of climbing on the walls. Not only do you have to pay attention to what’s around you but what’s on the ceiling too.
Just one of them on the ceiling? No biggie. Sadly, this isn’t the case. Another rumor has been spreading that these 2.0 versions travel inside of the ventaliation system. I assume you would have to anticipate them coming via hearing them in your headphones or speakers, but these are all still rumors. I personally wouldn’t like hearing the creepy Chuck E. Cheese rip-offs climbing over my head, but we just don’t know until more information is released.
So not only will we have returning faces for the sequel, we’ll have their oh so precious duplicates hunting us down from more areas than we ever could’ve dreamed of. (The term “dreamed of” used loosely, because all this game does is induce nightmares) We will also don the mask of a Freddy Fazzbear animatronic and wander around the pitch black pizzaria without doors to protect us. I don’t think I’ll be visiting Chuck E. Cheese anytime soon, or ever.
