Five Nights At Freddy?s creator Scott Cawthon has confirmed that Funtime Foxy has a jump scare in the upcoming game. Cawthon promised to scare his fans once more with the upcoming Five Nights at Freddy?s Sister Location. Will he make Sister Location different for it to be effective? Or will it just be the same as older entries?
Jump Scares Confirmed in Sister Location
According to AngusBrokenRanger?s thread on the Steam Discussion, Cawthon confirmed that he got scared once by Funtime Foxy?s jump scare while developing the game. Fans awaiting the upcoming game are excited about Cawthon?s reveal. At the least, this confirms both Funtime Foxy and jump scares in the upcoming game.
Previously, Cawthon took up the challenge of ?scaring ?his fans once more. However, the topic starter mentioned that jump scares have no effect to his fans anymore due to its repeated use. Cawthon used jump scares in the previous Five Nights at Freddy?s entries. Unless he innovates on the delivery of his jump scares, Five Nights at Freddy?s Sister Location may easily become stale and a redundant entry for the series.
Sister Location?s Potential
Five Nights at Freddy?s Sister Location has also been confirmed to have new features. Cawthon has confirmed voice acting in the upcoming game. Fans also found snippets of potential animatronic quotes or dialogue on a voice acting site. These voices could potentially improve the upcoming game?s story as the characters interact with each other. So far, the Five Nights at Freddy?s series only had silent protagonists and single-minded killer animatronics.
Additionally, the speculated free roam feature could make the game fresh as it would let players explore and move around. Exploration adds more to the game?s horror as players will be cautious of their moves throughout a larger area. Save for FNaF World, the Five Nights at Freddy?s series had players confined to a booth or a room where they staved off the threats trying to kill them.
For now, we can only hope for Cawthon to use jump scares in a new way to not disappoint his fans. If he doesn?t innovate, Five Nights at Freddy?s new features and potential will be wasted. Five Nights at Freddy?s Sister Location will be released in October.
