This game has received a PEGI 12 because it features moderate violence to fantasy characters and scenes of moderate horror that younger players may find disturbing. Not suitable for persons under 12 years of age.
As with previous instalments in the 'Five Night’s at Freddy’s' series, there is a constant sense of threat throughout as the player seeks to complete tasks while avoiding sinister characters closing in on them. If these characters reach the player, there is a sudden 'jump scare' in which the character lurches towards the screen and the screen fades to black. The sense of threat is underpinned by eerie sound effects, such as laughter and footsteps coming towards the player, as well as by the darkness and dim lighting. There are also sequences featuring violence towards the animatronic characters, including cinematic scenes in which they are crushed, broken apart or otherwise destroyed.
