We were told last May to expect Steel Wool Studios’ Five Nights at Freddy’s: Help Wanted 2 to arrive before the year is out, and that’s definitely the case with the developer announcing a December 14 launch on the PlayStation VR2. Not only that, but Steel Wool Studios’ executive producer Ray McCaffrey took to PlayStation Blog to dish out more details on the upcoming title.
“Our primary goal when designing Five Nights at Freddy’s: Help Wanted 2 was to make it dynamic enough that players would want to dive in repeatedly,” explains McCaffrey. To that end, the team has devised six categories of minigames for players to enjoy: Backstage, Fazcade, Staff Only, Food Prep, Ticket Booth, and what’s referred to as a “special category” containing the new virtual reality version of Five Nights at Freddy’s: Sister Location gameplay.
“Backstage” gives players VIP access with Roxanne Wolf in the Pizzaplex Salon, with the idea that you “glam her up” with a variety of makeup and accessories to choose from for a new style every time. “Fazcade”, on the other hand, allows you to enjoy classic games like Bonk-a-Bon and Fazerblast.
“Staff Only” sees players as a member of the safety and security team, who must perform “basic first aid” for guests who aren’t feeling quite like themselves. “Fazbear Entertainment doesn’t have the necessary license to stock any sedatives, so be delicate as possible when sawing off limbs because your patient’s screams will draw unwanted attention.”
“Food Prep” has you jumping behind the counter at El Chips and get the federally mandated amount of value preparing food in the Pizzaplex, which involves keeping up with the near-endless combinations of possible orders during the dinner rush.
Then there’s “Ticket Booth”, which sees you catching a ride on Captain Foxy’s Cowboy Adventure. “On this lighthearted log ride, you’ll float through the old West as a gunslinger in search of booty. In the event of a breakdown, please remain calm while the staff finds your location. You may have inadvertently drifted off course.”
Lastly there’s the new version of Five Nights at Freddy’s: Sister Location. “Between keeping Funtime Freddy busy while repairing electrical breakers or surviving a classic security office game until 6:00 a.m., this fan-favorite brought to life is as fun as it is terrifying.”
