Five Nights at Freddy's is an iconic franchise because it's an absolutely terrifying set of games. A few months ago, the developer announced that it was porting the games to Xbox One. Since then, it seemed like the project was delayed, but today, four Five Nights at Freddy's titles landed on the console. You can see them when you open the Microsoft Store in your browser or console.

Five Nights at Freddy's, Five Nights at Freddy's 2, Five Nights at Freddy's 3, and Five Nights at Freddy's 4 are available for $8 a piece. You can read about and purchase the individual games below.

Five Nights at Freddy's

Welcome to your new summer job at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, where kids and parents alike come for entertainment and food as far as the eye can see! The main attraction is Freddy Fazbear and his two friends. They are animatronic robots, programmed to please the crowd. The robots' behavior has become somewhat unpredictable at night, and it was much cheaper to hire you as a security guard than to find a repairman. If Freddy bear or his friends aren't in their proper places, you must find them on the monitors and protect yourself if needed.

Five Nights at Freddy's 2

Welcome back to the new and improved Freddy Fazbear's Pizza. In Five Nights at Freddy's 2, the old and aging animatronics are joined by a new cast of characters. They are kid-friendly, updated with the latest in facial-recognition technology, tied into local criminal databases, and promise to put on a safe and entertaining show for kids and grown-ups alike. The previous guard has complained about the characters trying to get into the office. To make your job easier, you've been provided with your very own empty Freddy Fazbear head, which should fool the animatronic characters into leaving you alone.

Five Nights at Freddy's 3

Thirty years after Freddy Fazbear's Pizza closed its doors, the events that took place there have become nothing more than a rumor and a childhood memory, but the owners of Fazbear's Fright: The Horror Attraction are determined to revive the legend and make the experience as authentic as possible for patrons, going to great lengths to find anything that might have survived decades of neglect and ruin.

Five Nights at Freddy's 4

In the last chapter of the Five Nights at Freddy's story, you must once again defend yourself against Freddy Fazbear, Chica, Bonnie, Foxy, and even worse creatures that lurk in the shadows. Playing as a child whose role is yet unknown, you must safeguard yourself until the morning by watching the doors, as well as warding off unwanted creatures that may venture into your closet.

While the Five Nights at Freddy's games may not be that technically sophisticated, they're a lot of fun to play. When I played them for the first time all those years ago, I actually had nightmares. This simple horror experience is quite powerful and if you love such games, these four titles are a must-buy. Plus, at $8 a pop, they're a great deal and offer a lot of replayability.
