My god was that quick or what? Five Nights at Freddy’s 2 Greenlight page is up as of the 21st of October. The original was released only two months ago, and hot on it’s heels comes the sequel once more developed by solo-act, Scott Cawthon. With the Greenlight page comes a brand new trailer to help amp up the horror.
What’s rather eerie and worth noting is that The Phone Guy seems to be leaving messages once again for the new hiree. The trailer opens up with children singing “London Bridge”. The Phone guy then says “If you’re hearing this, then chances are you’ve made a poor career choice.”
In Five Nights at Freddy’s 2, time seems to have passed within the realm of Freddy Fazbear’s pizzeria. The animatronic horrors from the original have fallen into disrepair, become neglected and are literally falling to pieces. They have been replaced by newer versions of them and deactivated. I’m sure you fans like myself, know that in the world of Five Nights at Freddy’s 2 that nothing stays deactivated for long. This time around though there are no doors to protect you from being attacked. Only a goddamn mask!
The steam Greenlight contains some interesting information on Five Nights at Freddy’s 2, further shedding light on what little is known of it. There is apparently new characters this time round, mingling with the old weathered characters from the first title in the Five Nights at Freddy’s 2 series. They have been updated with the latest in facial recognition software, are linked into local criminal databases and are guaranteed to put on a safe and entertaining show for kids and adults alike.
In Five Nights at Freddy’s 2 you will play as a new night shift guard, once more monitoring cameras and making sure nothing goes wrong. Mike Schmidt, the protagonist from the first game has complained about the robots trying to get at him from outside the office and so has been moved to the day shift, allowing the new guy to take over his hellish position. To help with your job you have been provided with a chassis-less Freddy Fazbear face. It can be used as a mask to fool the characters into leaving you alone, if they enter the office uninvited. It isn’t explained why there are no doors in Five Nights at Freddy’s 2 or what you can apparently do in your capacity as night guard, considering you can’t prevent entrance into the office. It begs the question why they would need a guard at all. We know very little about Five Nights at Freddy’s 2 currently. The wikipedia page states that Five Nights at Freddy’s 2 is actually not a working title, just a placeholder. We don’t know how many nights we will have to survive once more, not to mention how the hell is The Phone Guy able to leave the new hire another message? It is unknown whether the mask will protect you from Freddy himself. I tend to doubt it will personally, as Freddy should be able to spot an imposter, especially with that brand new facial recognition upgrade. Regardless, as I’m sure most readers here are aware, I’ve had a tenuous past relationship with Five Nights at Freddy’s, as evidence abounds. Five Nights at Freddy’s 2 is aiming to scare your pants off around some time in the next year. We’ll keep you posted as the story progresses. In the meantime I urge everyone reading this to go Greenlight Five Nights at Freddy’s 2 on steam if they are hungry for more stale, cold pizza and electric shock jump scares.More About This Game
