Five Nights At Freddy's 4 on Steam

Update: The teasers are for an upcoming spin-off game based on Five Nights At Freddy’s called FNAF World.

Five Nights At Freddy’s creator Scott Cawthon has begun releasing a new series of teaser images on his website. The teasers are revealing a new set of animatronic characters that appear similar to the toy animatronics from Five Nights At Freddy’s 2. The new characters are all updated, cartoonish versions of the characters from the second game.

The new teaser series began after the release of Five Nights At Freddy’s 4, which Cawthon has said will be the final game in the series. However, he’s indicated that there will be DLC coming out sometime around October 31. Since the game’s release, the image featured on Cawthon’s website (which has traditionally been used for teaser images) showed all of the characters from the series saying “Thank you.”

As of September 9, however, Cawthon has begun making subtle tweaks to some of the characters in the image above, with one new character appearing each day. First, the endoskeletons from the first two games were replaced with more cartoonish, cute versions (if an endoskeleton can be called “cute”). Those changes happened over 2 days.

Next, the animatronics themselves began to be replaced with what the fan community is calling their “toon” versions. First, a toon version of Freddy was added. The next day, Withered Chica (the version of Chica from an earlier location in the game’s lore) was replaced with its toon version.

The day after we got Toon Chica, Toon JJ was added. JJ is a bit of an elusive character – she’s the female version of Balloon Boy (or BB) and only ever appeared very rarely in the second game.

Then, yesterday, Balloon Boy was replaced with his toon version.

Presumably, these toon teasers are in preparation for the upcoming DLC for Five Nights At Freddy’s 4. Most fans expect the DLC to address the mysterious locked box that appears at the end of the game, though Scott Cawthon himself has said he won’t reveal anything about that until he feels the community finally arrives at an accurate theory. It will be interesting to see what new character appears in the image tomorrow.

Fear not; for those worried about potential censorship issues with the PS5-exclusive Stellar Blade, set to release on April 26th, Sony has got you covered. ShiftUp, the developer, proudly assures players that the game will maintain its uncensored content across all regions, including Japan.

We have to admit, we didn’t anticipate this as a potential issue or a potential selling point. The main character, Eve, and her revealing costumes have been heavily showcased in the game’s pre-release marketing. Nevertheless, it is pleasing to witness ShiftUp’s evident enthusiasm as their vision prepares to reach the hands of a vast number of players.

Regarding Stellar Blade, Yoko Taro believes it surpasses NieR: Automata, and we were pleased to learn that the game will be considerate of your PS5 storage capacity. The demo is now available for you to try, and it has nearly doubled the daily active users of Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth. This is quite impressive, especially considering it is the game’s first console showing.

Will you be there to experience Stellar Blade on its release day? It’s certainly a relief to witness the game remaining uncensored until the last moment. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.

There hasn’t been much buzz lately about any new acquisitions in the world of video game intellectual property. According to a recent report, Sony is currently engaged in discussions with a well-funded partner to potentially acquire the renowned film studio Paramount, along with all the exciting possibilities that come with such a merger.

As reported in the New York Times (thanks, ResetEra), Sony Picture Entertainment is reportedly in discussions with Apollo Global Management, an investment firm, as per two sources familiar with the matter. In the past, Apollo had made an offer to acquire Paramount for a minimum of $26 billion, but their bid was ultimately turned down.

The terms of the joint bid are currently under discussion, and there is a chance that the two parties may decide against making a formal offer. Unnamed sources have revealed that Paramount is currently in exclusive discussions with Skydance, preventing any official offer from being made at this time. Investor opposition to the recent deal that Skydance brought seems to have been significant.

The potential impact of such an acquisition is immense. First and foremost, it would introduce adaptations of Sonic and Halo into the expanding media empire of the PlayStation platform holder. Following the announcement, Paramount’s stock experienced a significant 11% surge in after-hours trading.

What are your thoughts on the news? Is there a possibility of Sony acquiring Paramount? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.

In the ongoing conflict against the Automaton invasion fleet, the Helldivers 2 players have successfully halted their advance. However, the situation has now reached a tiresome stalemate. Yet again, the machines refuse to take a break from their relentless pursuit of progress, with reports emerging of the Factory Striders being deployed in record-breaking quantities.

There have been reports of alleged machines that were supposedly encountered during Operation Swift Disassembly, which was just the beginning of a larger campaign. However, these accounts should be taken with a grain of salt, as they are unverified and seem to be more on the imaginative side. Factory Striders have gained a reputation as formidable weapons platforms that can produce more Automatons while enduring significant damage. If the machines are able to withstand such a relentless assault, it will be necessary to develop innovative strategies.

Have you come across groups of Factory Striders in Helldivers 2? Which strategies are proving to be the most effective in taking down these armored brutes? The Orbital Railcannon Strike will prove to be a valuable asset in the comments section below.
