Jason Vorhees comes smashing to our game screens this week in Friday The 13th: The Game and with it comes some big promises. Can the game deliver on those? Or are we going to see it sink to the bottom of Camp Crystal Lake?
So what do we know about this game? Well from the videos that have been doing the rounds for a while, we know that the game is going to be brutal! Im not messing about there when I say its brutal. Just check out this video and see for yourself.
So you made it back after that? See, brutal! In fact brutal doesn’t cover it, we need something far more accurate of a description. GRUESOME!
If you haven’t seen any information about The Game, let me lay you down some of the details.
Friday the 13th: The Game is a third-person horror, survival game where players take on the role of a teen counselor, or for the first time ever, Jason Voorhees. You and six other unlucky souls will do everything possible to escape and survive while the most well-known killer in the world tracks you down and brutally slaughters you.
How Will You Survive?
The entire focus of Friday the 13th: The Game is multiplayer. Survival is entirely up to you as you either stealthily hide from Jason or work together as a team to escape. Think you can take Jason on? You and the other counselors will have that chance as well. Be warned though, nothing is ever certain and no one is ever safe!
Play as Jason Voorhees!
For the first time ever, you will have the opportunity to play as Jason Voorhees, the most famous killer in horror. Stalk your prey and ambush them whenever you see fit. Friday the 13th: The Game will include a variety of kills, new and familiar. You’ll even get to unlock various Jason incarnations from the movies as well as two entirely new designs never before seen.
Camp Crystal Lake in All Its Glory.
Mirroring Camp Crystal Lake from the Friday the 13th series, players will try to survive in a camp ground setting. Complete with a lake, cabins, and crazed killer who won’t stop until you die a gruesome death.
Be Kind. Rewind.
Every aspect of Friday the 13th: The Game is drawn straight from movies you know and love. We’ve carefully crafted this world to remind you of everything you remember about Friday the 13th, right down to the visual fidelity of the 80’s. This is exactly how you remember it.
Friday the 13th:The Game has a huge amount of promise, and we at Thumb Culture are getting more and more excited the closer we get to the launch of the game. The potential for gruesome gameplay is just too much to control and as such you can rest assured that there will be plenty of content coming to the YouTube channel soon.
The Game is due to release on the 26th May on the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, both digitally and physically.
Friday the 13th has already smashed its Kickstarter goal, but if you wanted to find out more regarding the stretch goals, then head over here. Some of these goals are epic, once they reach $1,075,000 they are adding the ability to knock off a counsellors head with a single punch. There are so many stretch goals on their list, and hopefully once the game gets released we will see it constantly updated with new and even more delightful kills.
So will you be picking up the game when it gets released? Let us know down in the comments, perhaps we can chase you around Camp Crystal Lake and who knows…perhaps you will survive?
Been playing games since I can remember, from spectrum all the to current consoles. Always been interested in video game news and recently got the opportunity to head up a great team of eager people. I’m generally a man of many words but I try and be succinct and to the point in everything I write.
