The Steam page for Five Nights at Freddy?s Sister Location has officially confirmed the game?s release, which is October this year. Aside from the release date, the Steam page also revealed some official info that may confirm the game?s lore. The game?s protagonist may be a technician instead of a night guard like those in the previous Five Nights at Freddy?s games.
As seen on the Five Nights at Freddy?s Sister Location Steam page, the game is slated for an October 2016 release. After FNaF World, Scott Cawthon promised that he won?t release the game early and focus instead on making it better for launch. So far, only character reveals and not much of the gameplay have been seen in the game?s teases.
However, the Steam page description of the game somehow reveals the Five Nights at Freddy?s Sister Location?s gameplay and its main character. The Steam page features a job listing for a technician who enjoys ?cramped spaces,? which may mean a similar ?sit and survive? gameplay in which the player has limited tools and energy for his survival. However, the game features many screenshots of different locations which hints a chance for a free-roaming gameplay.
In addition to the ?technician? specialization of the protagonist, the player character may be able to disable the animatronics rather than just resorting to survive the nights. In the previous Five Nights at Freddy?s games, players would control a character that?ll just do safety measures to protect himself for the night instead of solving the problem for good. However, one of the endings of FNaF World suggests that the ?Baby? Animatronic is unstoppable even for its creator, so controlling the Five Nights at Freddy?s Sister Location animatronics may not be possible.
As expected from the Five Nights at Freddy?s series, the phrase ?Not responsible for death or dismemberment? may just be a cheeky reference to the game?s implied punishment when the player loses and the game is over. Previously, player characters were implied to have been stuffed into an animatronic, not losing limbs because of them.
