Friday the 13th: The Game was announced some time ago and the developers said then that the game will have a lot of brutal and unsettling scenes. They were right because a new trailer was released at PAX West this week and it shows a lot of these scenes, beware they are very graphic. For example is some scenes Jason pushes someone’s eyeballs into their face and lodges a pick-axe into an unfortunate soul’s neck.
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. Friday the 13th: The Game will strive to give every single player the tools to survive, escape or even try to take down the man who cannot be killed. Each and every gameplay session will give you an entirely new chance to prove if you have what it takes not only to survive, but to best the most prolific killer in cinema history, a slasher with more kills than any of his rivals!
Meanwhile, Jason will be given an array of abilities to track, hunt and kill his prey. Stalk from the shadows, scare your targets and kill them when the time is right in as brutal a fashion as you can imagine. Take control of the legendary killer that is Jason Voorhees and terrify those unfortunate enough to cross your path!
The survival horror game is developed by Gun Media and Illfonic and it’s scheduled for release on October 2016 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The game was originally to be developed as Slasher Vol. 1: Summer Camp, in which the story itself was different than so, by Illfonic in mid-2015. Gun Media acquired the rights and obtained a license to develop the game.The game evolved into Friday the 13th: The Game, and funding from both Kickstarter and BackerKit raised approximately $1.1M, becoming the 106th most successful crowdfunded project of all time.
