Five Nights at Freddy's: Security Breach: Ruin is a free expansion to Security Breach that acts as a standalone game where you play Cassie as she solves puzzles and attempts to find her missing friend. Rather than the main game's branching structure, this is a linear experience where you switch between two versions of reality to progress. It stands out for this unique world-switching mechanic and an unusual and unsettling story about artificial intelligence and manipulation.

Our accessibility examiner, Ben Kendall, first checked Five Nights at Freddy's: Security Breach: Ruin accessibility 7 months ago.

NotesAccessibility Notes

You can remap all buttons and can have up to two inputs per action. You can choose between toggles and holds for sprinting and sneaking, but there is still one moment where you need to hold down a button for a prolonged period that is required for the story, and several other non-essential holds are also present. You can invert the Y-axis, but not the X. Vibration intensity can be adjusted and can be very useful at times, as the controller will vibrate with each robot footstep with increasing intensity as the animatronic gets closer.

There are no difficulty settings, although in general, the game is quite easy (much easier than Security Breach itself), with no need for quick reactions, as the challenge instead comes from figuring out how to progress. One section at the end of the game sees you running away from a robot while following guidance about which direction to take, which is quite high-pressure, but if you fail you can start that section over immediately, as checkpoints are very frequent and the game saves after each bit of progress you make.

Some of the text in menus and on the UI can be somewhat small and low in contrast. Subtitles can be enabled and their size changed; at the maximum size, they are 1/20th of screen height and are high in contrast. Tutorial text can be made to stay on the screen for a maximum of 10 seconds, after which you cannot review it.

While there are no in-game maps, the layout is extremely linear, and once you've entered a new area it's often impossible to accidentally go back, so navigation in general is always fairly straightforward. Much of the time, there are additional visual cues that show you where to go in the AR world, such as glowing beams of light in the air or coloured cables on the floor, although the latter of these can be hard to see due to low contrast at times. Contrast in general is often quite low, and the game is in general extremely dark, although you have a flashlight that you can use indefinitely.

You can lower the volume of jumpscares independently of everything else in the game, although there will still be a sudden (occasionally flashing) visual popping up on the screen.
