Friday The 13th The Game gets shocking release date

Friday the 13th: The Game, which is being developed by IllFonic and published by Gun Media, has finally got a release date – but it’s not the one you’d expect. It’s been announced by Gun Media that the game will finally arrive on PC, PS4 and Xbox One on… the 26th May. Oh.

Camp Crystal Lake, home of the iconic hockey-mask-wearing killer Jason Voorhees.

Friday the 13th: The Game is a multiplayer-focussed game based on the cult movie series that will let one player take on the role of the murderous Jason Voorhees, with a further seven players playing camp counsellors. Said counsellers are desperately trying to escape the clutches of the iconic killer, and find a way out of the killing fields.

The original movie’s director Sean Cunningham, along with composer Harry Manfredini and actor/stuntman Kane Hodder, (who played Jason in four of the films) are all involved. Hodder once again picking up the machete of Jason in an all-new motion-captured performance.

As Jason, players have a variety of grisly ways to take out camp counsellors.

The game will initially release purely as a multiplayer game, but the developer has promised to add bots at a later date to give players a single player challenge as well. Friday The 13th: The Game was originally called Summer Camp, with no connection to the cult movie series until the original film’s director saw it, and thought it would fit the licence perfectly. Not long after that, a Kickstarter fundraiser was started, which raised nearly $1 million for the cost of development. Now Jason is once again primed to wreak havoc on Camp Crystal Lake.

I’ve been addicted to gaming since my parents bought an Atari console way back in the 70’s. I progressed to the iconic Speccy, Amiga, and all the Playstation platforms. Having seen games evolve from single pixel bat and ball, to HD constructed environments, gaming has changed much from my early years. Having defeated the rock hard R-Type on the Speccy, the biggest challenge I’ve faced so far is putting up with the hordes of American teens spouting abuse in the current generation of consoles, noob indeed!
