Five Nights at Freddy's: Help Wanted 2

Developer Steel Wool Studios has announced Five Nights at Freddy’s: Help Wanted 2 is getting a non-virtual reality release after its VR-only debut.

Five Nights at Freddy’s: Help Wanted 2 is getting a non-VR release for PlayStation 5 on June 20th.

The survival horror game was originally released for PlayStation VR2 back in December 2023. Owners of the original release will get the non-VR version entirely free.

Here’s a rundown on the new release:

Have you been feeling some FOMO at Freddy’s recently? Has your lack of a PlayStation VR2 left you unable to play Five Nights at Freddy’s: Help Wanted 2? Well, I come (Faz)bearing great news: Freddy and the Gang heard you loud and clear, and they’re coming to your PlayStation 5 on June 20. Welcome to the team, superstars.

This adaptation of Help Wanted 2 seamlessly transitions the terrifying gameplay experienced in the PS VR2 game onto the flat screen utilized by the power of the PlayStation 5. No matter how you prefer to play, be it from your couch or wandering around your living room with a headset, Fazbear Entertainment is happy to welcome you to the Pizzaplex.

As a new hire, your job comes down to a series of tasks, the most important of which is clocking out of your shift alive. Stave off thirsty bots with a refreshing Fizzy Faz, now made using point-and-click controls for speedier service, happier customers, and less danger.

You know what they say though, all work and no play makes for an awfully dull shift. When you’re not trying to avoid the nearest animatronic, you’re encouraged to explore your new job and see all it has to offer. Cool off on Captain Foxy’s Log Ride, which now operates with first-person shooter-style controls that allow gamers to aim and fire with the swivel of a joystick and pull of a trigger. The game contains all the joy of Freddy’s VR dark ride, but with more opportunities to impress your boss with that high score you’ve been shooting for (pun intended).

The fun doesn’t stop there. All of the games in Help Wanted 2 have been carefully adapted to accommodate the PlayStation 5, allowing a wider range of new hires to come join the fun. If you’re already an employee via the PS VR2, the standard PS5 version is included at no extra cost to you. Our team has taken great care to ensure that every step you take is filled with the chills and thrills only Freddy’s can provide.
