Scott Cawthon has released an update for the earlier versions of "Five Nights at Freddy's," though it is not what most may have been waiting for. Instead, the new update adds full screen functionality for older games, something players were unable to do before.

The minor update for earlier versions of the game improves on the previous screen issue, where players would see chunks of black background surrounding the view. Though not something big, folks still hooked on earlier versions of FNaF approve of the small update as seen on the Steam Community page.

And while the update should be interesting, there are still other parts of the games that need improvement. This would include replayability, which has been criticised by so many people.

While the history of "Five Nights at Freddy's" may pale in comparison to other heavily backed apps, it has risen to unexpected heights. Considering that the instalments hardly scratches a year when released, each version can easily be completed in three hours. 

The demand for major improvements may seem uncanny, considering that the youth are the ones who frequent taking on the challenges for all versions. Paired with the popularity it has gotten, Cawthon is likely aware that updates (as minor as they may be) are needed to keep players happy. 

The update for "Five Nights at Freddy's" is great, but Cawthon obviously has more ground to cover. As mentioned in a previous post, he is facing another dilemma. This has to do with the iOS version, where earlier versions may no longer be playable once iOS 11 is rolled out by Apple.

Once the OS is out in the open, only "Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location" will be playable, mainly because the game was already programmed using current advancement. Hence, tweaks may be needed to past versions, though there is no telling if Cawthon has that on his agenda. 

If so, folks will have to console themselves with "Sister Location" should iOS 11 roll out and render previous instalments unplayable. Cawthon is likely to look at the analytics first to see if the number of players support the need to make upgrades for earlier FNaF games.
