Surprise! Five Night's At Freddy's 3 Just Came Out

Surprise! Five Night's At Freddy's 3 Just Came Out

Well, this is unexpected.

Right now you can buy Five Nights at Freddy's 3 on Steam for 7.99. Unlike the second game, 3 is a sequel set in the future:

Thirty years after Freddy Fazbear's Pizza closed it's doors, the events that took place there have become nothing more than a rumour and a childhood memory, but the owners of "Fazbear's Fright: The Horror Attraction" are determined to revive the legend and make the experience as authentic as possible for patrons, going to great lengths to find anything that might have survived decades of neglect and ruin.

At first there were only empty shells, a hand, a hook, an old paper-plate doll, but then a remarkable discovery was made...

The attraction now has one animatronic.

Now brace yourself: every YouTuber alive is about to make a few Five Night's videos.

If you don't mind spoiling yourself on the experience, you can already watch Markiplier go through some of the game here:

    The reason this game is out so soon after the 2nd is because this series is literally shovelware in the worst sense of the word.

      this. the first one was interesting but didn't hold my attention but the game went viral and so I guess it's a smart move for the developer to cash in with games as quick as possible while people are still interested.

    It's not really unexpected at all. As soon as they announced the third game it was obvious they're shamelessly milking the franchise. This is three games in six months, there are very few changes between them. They're great for the story but for me they're not worth the price. They should have been released as chapters of one game, Telltale style, not three separate releases at close to full indie game pricing each.

    It's alright to release sequels. It's NOT alright to release the same game and call it a sequel.

    Big deal. At 8 dollars or cheaper its really chapters. Stop acting like its premium price.

      Thats the thing really, these are still highly popular games and the cost less than $10 to buy in. Not really sure why this gets a lot of hate.

        My kid devours these games and he loves the lore. He's using them as gateways into more involved games and I love it. He's asking about other scary games like Alien Isolation now, which I think is fantastic. For 8 bucks, it's the equivalent of an episode of The Walking Dead (yes I know, 25 bucks the whole thing), but the point is, 8 bucks per 'chapter', big whoop. It's not like you're getting 'The Order 1886' situation here, with limited gameplay at maximum price. You're getting a bit of lore, sure, repetitive slightly tweaked gameplay and a few jumpscares at less than you'd spend on a McDonalds meal. Whoop de doo. Keep making them Cawthorn.

      For what you get, $8 a chapter feels too expensive to me. FTL, Besiege, One Finger Death Punch, Thomas Was Alone, Binding of Isaac all have more content than the three Five Nights games put together and they're all around the same undiscounted price range.

        And for the amount of content you get in Wasteland 2 at 29 dollars, some of those games then go and feel unjustified in their pricing? Not really. It's not really actually comparable. Especially when you're talking single digit dollars. In this case, people are being humongously overly critical. How many people have we seen buy the same cut and paste COD year after year justifying the tiny tweaks and changes (and in some cases like MW3 they really WERE just tiny tiny tweaks) as 'all it needed'. Yet a game for 8 bucks should get hammered to shit? I guess it doesn't have the same fervent fanboy base. But, I can see the game for what it is, sure it's quickly made, I mean it obviously doesn't NEED a lengthy dev cycle and it's a short term genre fascination, but good on the guy for cashing in on it.

        Sucks to be the next person who drops 70 - 80 on the next COD or Order game hypocritically after they bash the shit out of this game though...

          I wouldn't spend even $20 on COD, I don't think it's worth it for me either =)

    Had a day off recently where I decided to buy and go through a series of short indie games on steam. Bought 1 and 2, played the first one for 5 minutes, never played the second.

    I don't know. Scott Cawthorn is just a one man development team. He has shown more love and commitment to this game than I see AAA studios put into theirs.

    Yes they basic concept of gameplay doesn't change but it's not copy+paste every time. In the first game you had the security of doors and lights but limited power.

    In the second you lose the power constraints but you also lose the safety of the doors and gain a partial sense of security with the Freddy mask. But then you have that damned marionette to keep wound up

    The third does quite a bit more. There's now only static animatronics when looking at the cameras. That fucking thing walks around outside and into your office. You have no door, and that thing is fucking creepy. Not to mention the hallucinations put take you out of your rhythm and the big issue which I like is that you can't even trust your maintenance monitor because sometimes you are already hallucinating that everything is alright. Until you see a decrepit Freddy or aged balloon boy out of the corner of your eye and into your face

    I wouldn't call it shovelware- since if he doesn't announce a sequel, fans make their own anyway. Scott is successful and congratulations to him for reinventing the gameplay style after it had been abandoned for so long

      Gotta admit after playing 3 for an hour this arvo that is not cut and paste gameplay. Hes done well.

        Yeah, there's too much new here, and not explained in enough detail before you have to play Tom & Jerry with a deranged screaming robot

          Indeed, we had to look up 'lets plays' to figure out wtf was going on...

            I still have no idea on the proper patterns. Half the time I'm resetting the ventilation but I'm hallucinating anyway

    Given the progression that many horror movie series follow, I predict the next one will be in space. Or possibly the Icon vs. Icon mashup, then space.

      You have 2-3 more sequels before we go that far. Then afterwards will be a reboot
