Indie horror game Five Nights at Freddy's 4 will be getting an update on October 31, developer Scott Cawthon has revealed. Titled the Halloween update, Cawthon detailed the announcement on the game's Steam page.

The Halloween update will bring the game to version 1.1 and will include "lots of goodies on the extras menu" for players who have beaten the sixth night in the game. These include a cheat menu, a challenge menu, and a "twist on a familiar minigame that provides a boost when playing challenge modes." The new content will be released as an automatic, free update.

The Halloween update will not be shedding any light on the mysterious box shown to players who survive the seventh night. Cawthon addressed the subject by saying, "I've decided that maybe some things are best left forgotten, forever."

Cawthon also expressed hopes to have "a small playable portion" of a new game ready by October 31. He confirmed that the game would not be Five Nights at Freddy's 5, although he did not specify if it would be related to the FNAF universe.

Five Nights at Freddy's 4 was first released in July this year. It is the fourth Five Nights at Freddy's game to be launched in the span of a year. The original Five Nights at Freddy's was well-received in GameSpot's review, earning an eight out of ten for its dark humor, ability to invoke "heart-pounding terror," and story delivery. A movie adaptation of the game is also being made with Roy Lee (The Departed, The LEGO Movie) and Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg of KatzSmith Productions (the upcoming Beetlejuice sequel) signed on as producers.
