If you wanted to give Five Nights at Freddy’s VR: Help Wanted a whirl but don’t own a virtual reality headset, don’t run to the store just yet. Steel Wool Studios are releasing a free update for the game that adds a “Flat” mode—meaning you won’t need the gear to play.
“We have been working really hard to create a version of Help Wanted for everyone who doesn’t have access to a VR headset,” the studio said in the description of the teaser video (below). “It’s been really important for us that the Non-VR (Flat) version feels great and 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 also noted: “If you have Help Wanted already on Steam or PS4, 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 PSVR) your game will work with that as well.”
The free update will be released today, December 17th.
