Five Nights at Freddy’s World is back and it’s free for everyone

FNAF creator Scott Cawthon has re-released Five Nights at Freddy’s Worlds after removing it from sale due to negative feedback. The best part is, it’s now completely free.

Following a controversial launch period earlier this year, Five Nights at Freddy’s World is now available to download for free on Gamejolt, creator Scott Cawthon has announced.

The overhauled release has a “remodeled overworld” and a “many other new features.” Cawthon didn’t elaborate on what these are, but assures the game will continue to be supported with future updates.

Five Night’s at Freddy’s World originally launched in January to negative feedback, with fans accusing Cawthon of rushing the game to release.

This isn’t the first time the creator has been accused of rushing games in franchise, which has seen several games release in the same year.

Thankfully, Cawthon has taken such in comments in his stride and aims to do all he can to repay the fans.

“This isn’t exactly an announcement that I’m enjoying writing, but it’s one that I feel I owe to the community,” Cawthon said last month.

“You know, I’ve been accused of rushing my games ever since FNaF 1, but I’ve never felt that I’d released a game too early… until now.”

The fact Cawthon is willing to give the game away for free is enough of an apology, but the developer plans to update the game with more new features and fixes as time goes on.

“I got too eager to show the things that were finished, that I neglected to pay attention to the things that weren’t. I’m going to fix this, and I’ll be updating] the game with these features in the coming weeks.

“So I say this to a community that I’ve enjoyed and respected for over a year and a half now–I’m sorry. I will continue to add features to the game and make it right.”

Five Nights at Freddy’s is available for download on Gamejolt. As far as we know, it isn’t spooky like the all the other games.
