You didn’t think your pals at Gun Media would miss this day to update you on their upcoming Friday the 13th game, would you? The Beta for the game recently closed, so Kickstarter backers and friends got their taste of what the game will become, but also as a way to give feedback to the developer. Well, they listened and they are working on it and they have a few new surprises for you as well!
For starters, how about a few new Jason designs? Jason as he appears in Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan and Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives will now be playable AND Jason will have the ability to throw knives and other weapons! Just when you thought running away was a safe option.
Oh, and they were even kind enough to add a song from The Misfits to solidify its ’80s feel. Who doesn’t love The Misfits? Kind of a perfect fit.
Jason, revived from his underwater grave in Crystal Lake, climbs aboard the SS Lazarus and slashes his way through almost everyone on the ship in Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (released originally in 1989).
Do you all remember the final showdown against final girl Rennie Wickham? If not, maybe it’s time to re-watch it? Or if you’ve never seen it, then see it for the first time. DO IT! Tonight is the night!
Hey hey… Look at what we have here. Inspired by Friday the 13th Part 6: Jason Lives, and suggested by many fans who played in the Beta. We’re proud to premier the first taste of throwing knives in the game. We’re also announcing a new song being included in the game! Friday the 13th by The Misfits!!!
Friday the 13th: The Game is set to release in early 2017.
