Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach teaser trailer unveiled!
During today’s virtual PlayStation 5 Showcase event, Scott Cawthon’s Steelwool Studios unveiled the first teaser trailer for the latest installment in the hit horror franchise Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach, which can be viewed in the player below!
Five Night’s at Freddy’s challenges players to survive for five nights as a security guard in a demented pizza entertainment restaurant where homicidal, possessed animatronics roam the halls in search of their next victims. Not many details are known in regards to the plot for Security Breach, but based on teases from Cawthon around the original game’s fifth anniversary, it appears to be set in a modernized shopping mall that contains a laser tag arena, an arcade, a large cinema and a Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza restaurant.
The first game in the series launched in August of 2014 and quickly became a sensation online, inspiring countless Let’s Play videos. A sequel was released in November of the same year, followed by third and fourth entries in 2015, a fifth game in 2016, a sixth game in 2017 and a seventh game last year. The series has played with non-linear and non-traditional storytelling throughout its continuity with the fourth game actually being the first in the timeline, the first game arriving in the middle of the continuity, and the most recent, Freddy Fazbear’s Pizzeria Simulator, being the final chapter (for now).
The underlying story of the franchise is very cryptic and hidden throughout the games, giving the upcoming film the opportunity to expand on and confirm the story details. Mini-games throughout the series have offered clues to the underlying story of what caused the animatronics of Freddy Fazbear and his friends to haunt the location, pointing toward a decade-spanning child murderer and the return of his victims from beyond the grave.
For the first time in the franchise, Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach will be a PlayStation console exclusive though no release window has currently been set for the mysterious title.
