Friday the 13th: The Game has experienced a few delays following its successful Kickstarter campaign. For the most part, the delays were due to the implementation of a highly requested single-player mode, and the console authentication process. Plus, the devs at Gun Media have been working tirelessly to deliver the very best experience for fans of the classic slasher film.
Now the wait is finally coming to an end, as the official release date for Friday the 13th: The Game was recently announced. On Friday, May 26th, players will be able to purchase the digital download of Friday the 13th: The Game for $40 USD on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Steam.
At launch, the game will feature the 1 vs. 7 frantic multiplayer that Kickstarter backers were able to experience during the closed beta. A singleplayer mode will reportedly release later in the summer, so be sure to check back for more information and updates as they’re released.
If you’ve yet to experience the frights in Friday the 13th: The Game, the main premise is that you and six other players need to work together to escape Camp Crystal Lake. Meanwhile, one player will assume the role of Jason Voorhees, who (if you’ve seen the films) is quite capable of slaughtering you and your friends. “All your friends are dead!”
We had a blast trying it out during the closed beta, and if you’re a fan of the film like we are, you’ll love just how authentic the scenery in Camp Crystal Lake feels. Don’t take in the sights for too long, though, as Jason can sneak up behind you at any moment!
