Crystal Lake Entertainment, Gun Media and IllFonic have teamed up to announce Friday the 13th: The Game, an upcoming third-person horror, survival game.
“Jason is unleashed! Take part in the ultimate asymmetrical multiplayer horror game experience! 1 vs. 7 gameplay featuring Jason Voorhees against a group of teen counselors attempting to survive the night.”
“As you can imagine the conversion from Slasher Vol.1: Summer Camp to Friday the 13th: The Game was a dream come true for our entire team, explained Ronnie Hobbs, of Gun Media.
1v7 asymmetrical multiplayer is a perfect fit for this franchise, and we can’t wait to share our creation with fans across the world.”
A Kickstarter for the project is live, which will help the developers “expand the scope of the game and give backers the ability to be a part of the franchise forever”.
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!
- 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 is set to launch in autumn 2016 for PC, Xbox One and PS4.
