Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach


Connor Austin

     The newest installment of the Five Nights at Freddy’s game series releases on December 16th, and it is called “Security Breach”. Security Breach will be the start of a big chance for Five Nights at Freddy’s, for one, the original creator of the Five Nights at Freddy’s games have retired and this will be his last project game wise. It also has 3D models and will have a whole pizza plex you can move around in. It is a big chance from the first Five Nights at Freddy’s, where you sit in office checking cameras and turning on lights and closing doors. This game will feature older characters to an extent, like Chica and Freddy, but they are updated and are called “Glamrock” animatronics. But this game also features newer characters like Montgomery Gator, Roxanne Wolf, Vanny, etc.

     The mechanics of the game are still pretty unclear, but there are a few things we know about it. For one, Glamrock Freddy appears to be an ally throughout the game. In the second trailer, we see Gregory (the character you play as) go into Glamrock Freddy’s stomach to hide from another animatronic. We also see that you have some sort of watch, that shows the security cameras, and it also shows something about Freddy. It is theorized that throughout the game you have to sort of charge Freddy, and if he loses battery he could attack you or maybe deactivate and then you’re on your own. Again, not much is known about the mechanics and a lot of it is just mostly theories.

     The story for the game is pretty secret as well, but there are some important things we do know. For one, the main character’s name is Gregory. Second, there is a security guard that many people think is one of the enemies, Vanny, trying to pretend to be a good guy. There is a clip from the first trailer where we see Gregory hiding from her, so it seems likely. In the beginning of the first trailer, we hear a voice talking to Vanny, and everyone for sure knows that it is William Afton. William Afton is the main villain of the games, and he made his first appearance in Five Nights at Freddy’s 3, as Springtrap. After that he was in numerous games and he was even in the books. The books is actually how we know his name is William Afton.

     For the quality of the game, I think it can be expected to be phenomenal. The game has been worked on for a while now, and has been delayed a lot, which means they have more to time to make updates and make the game better. Even now they are still making it better, and it is 10 days away from the release date.

     This game also has means a lot for the Five Nights at Freddy’s franchise. As I said before, this the last project the original creator of the games, Scott Cawthon, will be making. When we were given more details of his retirement, it was said that he would be passing the mantle down to someone, but it is still unclear who. It could be to Steelwool, who helped Scott make Security Breach and Help Wanted. Then again, it could also be a creator of one of the Five Nights at Freddy’s fan games. Like Emil Ace Mako who made Five Nights at Candy’s, or Kane Carter, the creator of Popgoes. Another reason this game means a lot to Five Nights at Freddy’s is because it is the first Five Nights at Freddy’s game that isn’t just clicking things. There is gonna be a lot more things to do, the map will be more developed, there will be good graphics. None of those things have really existed in a Five Nights at Freddy’s game before, at least not in the way we dreamed of.

In conclusion, I think we can expect a lot from Security Breach and not be disappointed. If you want to get the game so you can see for yourself, get it on December 16th on the Playstation 4, Playstation 5, or Microsoft Windows. If you do not have any of those platforms, it is said that it would release to others like Xbox a few months after release.
