'Friday the 13th: The Game' release date, latest news




An extended gameplay footage of "Friday the 13th: The Game" was recently released by Gun Media. The new footage features the game's asymmetric multiplayer gameplay and shows camp counselors trying to survive against Jason.

According to Game Rant, the new gameplay footage shows players working together in their attempt to survive against iconic horror character Jason Voorhees from the "Friday the 13th" slasher film franchise. As demonstrated in the footage, communication is key in ensuring the players' survival in the game as each of them will be left to their own devices in Higgins Haven. They would have to find each other, form groups, and scavenge for supplies.

In the game, players are given somewhat vague objectives which they can complete mostly by locating important items which can be used for their escape. Players are also allowed to gather a variety of weapons which they can use to temporarily stop Jason from coming after them.

Based on the extended gameplay video, it is also possible for players to abandon other survivors and let them be killed by Jason. Should one of the players get captured by Jason, other players have the power to decide whether to help the captured survivor or leave him to save themselves. This option for betrayal adds a complicated but interesting twist to the asymmetric multiplayer gaming style of "Friday the 13th."

Although not much creativity has been displayed yet with regards to how Jason executes the players, the footage reportedly shows just enough to prove how formidable of an opponent and a villain Jason is. Similar to his strengths in the films, Jason is impervious to whatever is thrown at him, and he is so strong that he kills the camp counselors very easily once he catches them.

Originally slated for release this October, "Friday the 13th: The Game" will instead be made available for PC, PS4, and Xbox One in the first quarter of 2017 in order for its developers to explore the implementation of a singleplayer mode.
