New Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach Trailer Reveals Mall Location
The Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach trailer shown during Sony’s State of Play event on February 25 offers fans of the series a closer look at the location they’ll be able to explore in the game.
The location is called the Mega Pizza Plex and has a diverse collection of areas to explore with dark, underground areas and a bright, cheerful play area featuring a massive ball pit.
The vibe that the Mega Pizza Plex gives off is retro, 80s neon nostalgia and in terms of graphics, Security Breach takes things to an entirely different level.
On the PS Blog, there’s a note stating:
“Security Breach is by far the most ambitious Five Nights at Freddy’s game yet!”
Going through the rest of the PS Blog, a brief overview of the Mega Pizza Plex is provided along with teases that there’s a lot more to come.
It’s hard to be patient, but at the very least, we know that Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach is still aiming for a 2021 release date.
“We know that you have all been waiting patiently (mostly) for more news on the upcoming Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach! So today we’re incredibly excited to unveil the first gameplay trailer in Sony’s State of Play,” the PS Blog begins.
“Since its launch in 2014, Five Nights at Freddy’s has grown at an exponential rate, gaining a unique following as a “horrific” cult-classic. Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza is no longer limited to small pizzerias, as they have now opened the Mega Pizza Plex in Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach. Security Breach is by far the most ambitious Five Nights at Freddy’s game yet!
Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach has been a massive undertaking. The Mega Pizza Plex is enormous. What you are about to see barely scratches the surface of the horror you will experience when you step out of the security office and explore the darkened hallways, arcades and Fazbear attractions.
Don’t worry, this won’t be the last you’ll hear from us as we still have a few more tricks up our sleeves, but you’ll just have to wait and see what we have in store! In the meantime, sit back, relax, and grab a slice of pizza.”
As I watch, and re-watch the trailer I can’t help but be in awe of the music, cinematics, and story narration that are presented. The series has come a long way indeed, as supported by its devoted fans who’ve fallen in love with the games and their complex, intricate lore. Myself included.
With the mention of the game’s lore, the trailer seems to offer additional clues as to how Security Breach will connect to and expand upon the existing Five Nights at Freddy’s story.
In the comments section of the trailer, speculation runs rampant, with a few solid ideas presenting themselves. Of course, until the actual game is released though, it’s hard to say for sure what all of the ties and connections are.
Back in 2020, I wrote about the trailer shown during the PS5 showcase in September and pointed out a few things that are worth pointing out here as well.
First, the fact that Vanny is shown in Security Breach who we got to know better in Five Nights at Freddy’s VR: Help Wanted.
Assisting with that game was Steel Wool Studios who are also involved in Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach, suggesting that Security Breach will develop story elements introduced in Help Wanted even further.
Back in 2019, there was a clue on the FNaF World website (while it was still up) that referenced the number 58.
In the September 2020 trailer for Security Breach, artwork for Freddy in Space 2 is shown which was a sequel to FNaF 57: Freddy in Space, technically making it FNaF 58.
References to Glitchtrap are also made in the September 2020 trailer and in the Security Breach trailer shown today, a lot more of Glitchtrap is shown, confirming they are a piece of the overall Security Breach puzzle.
Other clues include the text:
“When fear takes hold, and reality fails, the stage is set, and insanity prevails.”
Then there’s the interesting narration:
“Gregory, we can get you out of here. You and me together. They won’t stop hunting you. None of them will stop hunting you. We have to get you out by morning.”
Other things of note that are less connected to the story include the introduction of human models into FNaF for the first time with the security guard.
It seems you’ll have to avoid quite a few enemies as they hunt and chase you through the Pizza Plex, adding to the key horror elements of FNaF that people know and love.
And the music accompanying the trailer is cool as heck, not necessarily important, but worth pointing out nevertheless.
Everything comes together perfectly, though I kind of wish they’d provided an exact release date for me to mark on my calendar.
The wait for the game’s release is going to be challenging indeed, but until then, I (like many others) will busy myself by trying to figure out where the story is going based on what’s been shown in the trailers thus far.
With that in mind, I’m curious to hear your thoughts on the trailer and your theories. Feel free to share them on the Prima Games social media channels including Facebook and Twitter, and stay tuned for more FNaF: Security Breach coverage here at Prima Games!
