It is an upcoming nonlinear survival horror video game by ScottGames and Steel Wood Studios. The initial release date of Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach for PS4, PS5, and Microsoft Windows is December 16, 2021. It is the thirteenth game in the Five Nights at Freddy’s series, and it takes place after the events of Five Nights at Freddy’s: Help Wanted. Unlike most earlier versions in the franchise, it takes place in a mall rather than a pizzeria and will include a single night of survival at the mall rather than the usual five.
The gameplay of Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach
In Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach, the player controls the boy, Gregory. He has to complete multiple tasks till 6 a.m. to survive. Gregory is trapped among brutal animated creatures in the big shopping center. Some animated characters are Montgomery Gator, Glamrock Freddy, Sunnydrop, and Giant music man. The player has to discover more characters who help the animated characters find Gregory, like Vanny, a rabbit, Vanessa, a security guard and robot, Staff Bots. By every night, these creatures become more powerful. Gregory can distract them by hiding or throwing stuff. Avoid running, as stamina becomes low, and if it happens, the player can’t even move fast. Gregory has a flashlight and wristwatch to see through the dark and access the mall systems. But it requires frequent charging. He can use two-weapon more: Faz-cam for knocking up all the enemies but in limited power and Fazblaster for a direct headshot with unlimited power but difficult to use.
Gregory is locked in a shopping mall, Freddy Fazbear’s Mega Pizzaplex, for the night among Glamrock animated character and Vanny, who is a true believer of Glitchtrap. On the other hand, Freddy is the only one that Vanny and Glitchtrap manipulate. Gregory should partner up with Freddy, Sunnydrop, and Vanessa to find clues and complete tasks. He will get help from them for escaping through the mall. Freddy’s stomach’s compartment is named “birthday-cake-hatch” and easily gets past other characters by seeing through Freddy’s eyes. Consequently, the power of Freddy’s battery is limited and has to recharge frequently. Gregory also receives recommendations, shortcut keys, enemies, and challenge signs by Freddy.
