Five Nights at Freddy’s quadrilogy scaring up a storm on consoles today

Ready, Senor Beaverotti?

If you fancy making Black Friday darker than ever, then publisher Clickteam has got the release for you. Today sees the infamous Five Nights at Freddy’s franchise finally creep its way onto console platforms.

The Five Nights series, created and developed by programmer Scott Cawthorn, has built a huge following since its inception with its tense gameplay, grim atmosphere and notorious jumpscares. The initial premise of the series sees the player in the role of a hapless security guard, who must survive the night shift in a beat-up children’s restaurant, populated by homicidal animatronic characters.

The first four mainline entries – Five Nights at Freddy’s, Five Nights at Freddy’s 2, Five Nights at Freddy’s 3, and Five Nights at Freddy’s 4 – are all available to download on PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch today. Not joining the party is the fifth mainline game Sister Location or any of the FNAF spin-off titles. Each entry is priced around $8.
