Five Nights at Freddy’s VR: Help Wanted non-VR mode update launches December 17

Play without a virtual reality headset in the new Flat mode.

Five Nights at Freddy's: Help Wanted

Steel Wool Studios will release a free update for Five Nights at Freddy’s VR: Help Wanted on December 17 that adds “Flat” mode that does not require a virtual reality headset, the company announced. The game is currently available for PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam, with “more platforms to be announced soon.”

“We have been working really hard to create a version of Help Wanted for everyone who doesn’t have access to a VR headset,” Steel Wool Studios said. “It’s been really important for us that the non-VR (Flat) version feels great and is not just a cheap ported 2D version of the VR version. We’ve worked hard on making the cameras and controls feel great!”

The studio continued, “If you have Help Wanted already on Steam or PlayStation 4, you can play in Flat mode. If you don’t have VR you can buy and play the game in Flat mode and if you upgrade with a VR headset later (PC VR or PlayStation VR) your game will work with that as well.”
