I’m Ray McCaffrey, Executive Producer at Steel Wool Studios, and I speak for all of our time when I say that we’re thrilled to finally give everyone a sneak peek of what to expect in Five Nights at Freddy’s: Help Wanted 2. We’ll cover general details of the game, addressing what makes this game different from its predecessor and the unique features of PS VR2 that we’re taking advantage of to immerse players in the world of FNAF in a whole new way.
Our main goal when designing Help Wanted 2 was to make it dynamic enough that players would want to immerse themselves repeatedly. For more than a few minigames, we’ve maintained the spirit of the original to take players through the curated experiences we love to create. However, our main goal was to ensure that the vast majority of games were different every time you played.
There are six categories of mini-games: Backstage, Fazcade, Staff Only, Food Prep, Ticket Booth and a special category containing the new VR versions of the game Five Nights at Freddy’s: Sister Location.
Go backstage as a VIP with Roxanne Wolf at the Pizzaplex Lounge. She loves being up close and personal with those who adore her almost as much as she terrifies those who ruin her good looks. Being at the forefront of fashion, she has a menacing collection of makeup and accessories to choose from for a new look every time. However, she’s not the most patient of the gang, so while you’re beautifying her, you’ll want her to look perfect at all times.
Head to Fazcade and enjoy classic games like Bonk-a-Bon and Fazerblast. You’ll need some precision and quick reflexes to get high scores. If you’re a great shooter with lightning-fast reflexes, you might live long enough to see them.
Staff from our safety and security team to provide basic first aid to guests who are not feeling like themselves. Whether it’s a small patch or curing rabies, you need to have it covered. Fazbear Entertainment does not have the necessary license to stock sedatives, so be as gentle as possible when cutting off limbs because your patient’s screams will attract unwanted attention.
Hop on over to the El Chips counter and earn the federally mandated amount of value when preparing food at Pizzaplex. While it’s hard not to wonder what nacho cheese is made of, it’s even harder to keep up with the nearly endless combinations of possible orders during the dinner rush hour.
Remember, STAFF robots that fulfill orders never need to sleep, eat, or stop; Don’t get distracted wondering why you’re the only human employee left…
Head to the ticket office and enjoy a ride on Captain Foxy’s Cowboy Adventure. On this joyous log ride, you’ll float through the Old West like a gunslinger in search of loot. In the event of a breakdown, remain calm while personnel find your location. It is possible that without realizing it you have strayed off course.
If you lack fear, immerse yourself in the world of Five Nights at Freddy’s: Sister Location. Between keeping Funtime Freddy busy while fixing electrical circuit breakers or surviving a classic security office game until 6am, this fan favorite brought to life is as fun as it is terrifying. It is an experience full of personalized virtual reality games.
Thanks to the unique features of the PS VR 2 headset, we’ve also created a more engaging horror experience through controller haptics, 3D audio, and more. The roar inside headphones has been connected to our scariest moments, adding a level of physicality to scares that wasn’t possible before.
Finally, thanks to PS VR2’s eye tracking system, the fortune teller Mystic Hippo will read players’ minds. A mini-game has been created exclusively for PlayStation 5, where players can challenge their ancient powers of perception. She picks a card, any card, and she’ll look at you to see what it is. If you’re also attuned to the supernatural, you can try blocking your view of her, but she’ll also guide you through everything Help Wanted 2 has to offer.
And that’s that. Thank you very much for taking the time to read all of this. You’ll be able to get your hands on dozens of mini-games in Help Wanted 2 on December 14, 2023.
