Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location

Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location is an indie point-and-click survival horror game developed by Scott Cawthon, and the fifth installment of the Five Nights at Freddy's series. The game is a sequel to Five Nights at Freddy's 4.

Unlike the first four games, the fifth game has a major change in gameplay - instead of the player being stuck in one room and fending off animatronics, the player can now free-roam and explore areas.


Welcome to Circus Baby's Pizza World, where family fun and interactivity go beyond anything you've seen at those *other* pizza places! With cutting-edge animatronic entertainers that will knock your kids' socks off, as well as customized pizza catering, no party is complete without Circus Baby and the gang!

Now hiring: Late night technician. Must enjoy cramped spaces and be comfortable around active machinery. Not responsible for death or dismemberment.


The game was first teased back in April 2016, with a single image of the title and the animatronic, Circus Baby, on Scott's site; several more teaser images would eventually follow. A later trailer revealed the release date of October 7, 2016.

As part of the ongoing hype, Scott developed several "hoaxes" that kept conversations going. The first was dropped in August on his site, suggesting the game had been canceled due to leaks. However, fans soon discovered that the cancellation image, once lightened, revealed a news article detailing the closing of the in-game location due to gas leaks.

The second "hoax" was much closer to the release date, in which Scott suggested he would have to work on the game for longer than anticipated due to its darker storyline, which would not be appropriate for younger players. Three days later, just as initially promised, the game released.


Unlike the previous games, Sister Location has some free roam, and has players complete a series of objectives depending on which night it is, the list of which can be found here.



A total of 8 stars can be unlocked in the fifth game's two modes.
