Five Nights at Freddy’s 3 got a surprise release this week for PC, and if history is any indication, then gamers hoping to play it on mobile won’t have much longer to wait.
The game was released in Steam this week and is currently available for $7.99, but so far isn’t listed on the App Store or Google Play.
Given the popularity of the first two installations on mobile, it’s likely that Five Nights at Freddy’s 3 will show up on mobile sooner rather than later. Gamezebo noted that Five Nights at Freddy’s 2 launched on Android five days after the PC release, with the iOS version coming four days after that.
The latest version of the game takes place 30 years after Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza closed down, with owners of the new “Fazbear’s Fright: The Horror Attraction” reviving it to the original thrilling experience.
Before completing Five Nights at Freddy’s 3, developer Scott Cawthon tried to raise funds through a Kickstarter campaign. It ultimately failed (with just two backers) and ended up being canceled, but the site shared a bit of Cawthon’s inspiration for the game.
“I grew up in the golden age of animatronic pizza places, and while I LOVED those places, they still scared the hell out of me! I always knew that there were creepy robots underneath those giant costumes. I think that fear was shared by most of the other kids too.
Five Nights at Freddy’s embodies that fear, putting you in the role of a security guard working the night shift at a local pizza place which features three large robotic mascots, all of which tend to misbehave at night.
From your small office you must watch the security cameras carefully. You have a very limited amount of electricity that you’re allowed to use per night. That means when you run out, you can no longer secure the doors or use the lights. If something isn’t right- namely if Freddybear or his friends aren’t in their proper places, you must find them on the monitors and protect yourself if needed. You can only have one door secured at a time, and only view one camera at a time; or you will use too much power.”
