FNaF VR – Help Wanted revealed. Ready for the worst job ever?

Posted on March 27, 2019

Looking for a summer job that will most likely kill you on the first day? Then look no further! Hot off the heels from the teasers for a new game in the Five Nights at Freddy’s series, we now have our first look into the next entry, now officially known as FNaF VR – Help Wanted.

This latest entry, as was previously established, takes advantage of VR tech in order to place a different spin on a number of scenarios from previous games in the franchise, and also has some brand new ones that are designed to be as immersive as possible; meaning you’ll jump out of your chair harder than ever before. Have a look at the reveal trailer below.

Note: The trailer ends in a jumpscare, because of course it does.

There isn’t much gameplay shown here, but if you check out this video from the GamersPrey YouTube Channel, you’ll see some of the in-game footage that was shown by Sony. Skip to about 0:35 to see it in action.

FNaF VR – Help Wanted, where the fun comes to life, and has a very unique idea of what ‘fun’ is

As shown, the game will be dropping players into various moments throughout the Five Nights series, but each will be modified in order to take advantage of the new medium. As an example, we see Nightmare Freddy once again terrorising us in the house of Five Nights 4,  and the hallucinations of 3 suddenly jumping out while the player tries to keep the system from imploding.

“Damn you, Windows 98!”

In addition, we can see some brand new set-pieces, most notably a scene in which Chica needs to be treated for a cockroach infestation (I guess the pizza she eats attracts critters if she can’t digest it). As stated on the official PlayStation blog, “(When playing on PC, you know that) nothing is really going to sneak up on you. But in VR, you feel like you are in the pizzeria.” This seems to be the driving force behind the game, with the developers, Steel Wool Studios, wanting to show just how scary it would be to exist in the world of FNaF. Not that we needed much convincing, but still.

A release date hasn’t been set for FNaF VR – Help Wanted yet, but it’s confirmed to be coming to PlayStation VR, HTC Vive, and Oculus. If you’d like to know more, head on over here to read the game’s PlayStation blog post,  and be sure to keep an eye on the developer’s YouTube channel for new footage when it’s revealed.

Now let’s all be grateful that Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza hasn’t partnered with Uber Eats, or else we’d really be in trouble…
