Five Nights At Freddy’s 4 finally has a trailer. Scott Cawthon, series creator, uploaded the trailer to his Youtube channel earlier today. The Five Nights At Freddy’s 4 trailer shows a house setting with the animatronics fans know and love from the first three games moving around in the shadows.
Warning: Video contains jump-scares. Duh.
The house setting is a dramatic departure from the series’ previous three games, which all took place within a pizzeria. But the change isn’t exactly a surprise, with the previous Five Nights At Freddy’s 4 teaser showing what appeared to be a window in a home.
Other than the change in setting, if you’ve played previous Five Nights At Freddy’s games, you’ll know what to expect. The Five Nights At Freddy’s 4 trailer appears to show similar mechanics to previous games, with the screen moving from side to side with a flashlight shining on the various entrances.
Five Nights At Freddy’s 4 was originally going to be released on Halloween this year, but Cawthon recently bumped the release date up to August 8, which will commemorate the 1-year anniversary of the first game.
Fans are already going wild over the trailer. The change of setting in particular opens the game up to so many possibilities, chief among them is the question of whose home this is and how the animatronics got there. The trailer also seemed to indicate that players might be able to move around in this game, or at least change locations in some manner. That’s not been confirmed, but it’s got fans excited.
We can catch glimpses of Nightmare Bonnie and Foxy in the trailer, both of which were shown in the teaser images leading up to the trailer. There is also the text that says “what have you brought home?” The text has led some fans to speculate that the protagonist of this game will be a child who visited the pizzeria.
The teaser images leading up to this trailer have all strongly hinted that Five Nights At Freddy’s 4 will focus on the Bite Of 87, the event in which one of the animatronics bit a child. The question of which animatronic was responsible for the bite was posed in the teasers.
With less than a month to go before the game’s new release date, fans are getting hyped for the “final chapter” of the Five Nights At Freddy’s series.
