FNAF Security Breach Ruin DLC Release

On Wednesday, July 25th, 2023, Five Nights at Freddy’s Security Breach: Ruin DLC Released for players on PS4, PS5, and PC. This release 2 years after the 2021 release of FNAF Security Breach has been anticipated by the FNAF community and fans for months now as teasers and fan theories on what the new DLC could be about, especially given its title “Ruin”.



Security Breach Controversy

The release of FNAF Security Breach on December 16th, 2021 was an unexpected and very obviously rushed release of the new open world game of the FNAF franchise. There were many mixed reviews of the game as many loved the game despite lots of glitches and game bugs that often made some parts of the game nearly impossible to complete, frustrating many other fans. The connection between this game and the FNAF story line was also a founding point of criticism for this game as it seemed disconnected from what has been known about the FNAF franchise so far as unnecessary plot lines and unfamiliarity of the open world PizzaPlex seemed like a different universe than the classic office security night shift FNAF games.



DLC Hype

However, with the release of the DLC being referenced from late May of 2022 until its release this Wednesday, there has been a lot of excitement for the possible comeback of the game despite the original game’s heavy criticism with the new DLC perhaps reviving the story and original intent of the first game. However, many were doubtful that it would be able to help recover the game’s issues as it would not be long as it is only a DLC, which is often a shorter, faster paced after ending to a game. Nonetheless, FNAF fans were still ecstatic to see updates and teasers for the Ruin DLC for Security Breach.



Will it Save Security Breach?

The Ruin DLC for Security Breach being in the works for 2 years definitely had FNAF players speculating the possibility of the game’s reputation being revived with the addition of the DLC as well as improvements on bugs and issues within the game that were often called out by the FNAF community and players online. So far, many online content creators and streamers have made videos on the new Ruin DLC and seem to like the change of direction from what the original game lacked with connecting to the FNAF story line as well as less bugs and issues, especially compared to the state Security Breach was in when it first released.



Conclusion

Overall, the release of the new Ruin DLC has created a lot of new theories, videos, and commentary on Security Breach as players discover it’s additional game play and secrets to uncover in context of the original game. The DLC is free to play for anyone who already owns FNAF Security Breach, which is about $40-60. References to FNAF: Help Wanted are also made within the new DLC, so if you are not familiar with or haven’t played FNAF: Help Wanted it would not only be a fun experience to play all the FNAF games in VR, but also to further understand the story behind what is happening in the new Ruin DLC.
