For Halloween 2019 Oculus and Steel Wool Studios announced that the jump scare filled Five Nights at Freddy’s VR: Help Wanted would be coming to Oculus Quest. It’s now been revealed the horror title will be a summer release, arriving in the middle of July.
Previously released for PC virtual reality (VR) headsets as well as PlayStation VR, Five Nights at Freddy’s VR: Help Wanted brings all those classic mini-game scares under one banner. With the Oculus Quest edition, you’ll be able to take all those mechanical horrors with you to frighten your friends.
It looks like the Oculus Quest version will have the same content as the other platforms, combining Five Nights at Freddy’s, Five Nights at Freddy’s 2, Five Nights at Freddy’s 3, Five Nights at Freddy’s 4, and Five Nights at Freddy’s: Sister Location.
If you’ve not braved the videogame before the story revolves around a theme park which has giant animatronics to entertain the guests. However, at night the once cuddly mechanical creations come to life and take a menacing turn for the worst, so it’s up to you to keep them at bay.
This means having to keep an eye on security cameras for any movement, crawling into claustrophobic ventilation systems to fix them or trying to mend broken animatronics. All the while making sure you’re not going to be their next victim. All these scenarios and more take place in short mini-game stints.
VRFocus gave the PC VR version of Five Nights at Freddy’s VR: Help Wanted a four-star review, saying: “Five Nights at Freddy’s VR: Help Wanted has great visual impact, and would definitely make for some funny YouTube videos with people trying it for the first time.” Adding that the title: “is definitely one for series fans or those that enjoy a good scare.”
Five Nights at Freddy’s VR: Help Wanted is coming to Oculus Quest on 16th July. For further updates on the videogame, keep reading VRFocus.
