Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
Fans of Jason Voorhees have been very eager to experience the upcoming FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE GAME from Gun Media and IllFonic in partnership with Crystal Lake Entertainment. Continuing to move forward with great progress, it will not be much longer now until the new game is released.
"When is it coming out? It seems that this is the most asked question about the game. We have been told early 2017 for a while, and the curiosity and wonder continues to build and grow. With fans wanting a much more specific answer, the team behind the scenes of the game are just as eager to release the game.
Here is what a leading team member had to say on the matter:
"The only reason you haven’t seen a release date is because we have to pass console certification.
So here’s my promise to you. Once we pass certification we are considered “Gold”. The very second that happens, we can release a date."
FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE GAME is a third-person, asymmetrical multiplayer title where one player controls Jason Voorhees while the remaining seven control camp counselors trying to survive the night.That’s right…1v7 multiplayer set in the semi-open world of Camp Crystal Lake! It’s a classic horror fan’s dream, no shaky cam, no found footage. We want you to know we’re revitalizing the golden era of slashers, and putting you at the controls of each horrific, blood-splattered moment.
Kane Hodder reprises his role as Jason Voorhees via motion capture. Also on board with the project are FRIDAY THE 13TH Alumni Tom Savini, Harry Manfredini, and Sean S. Cunningham.
FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE GAME is being developed for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and is due out very soon for multiplayer with single player being added in for all versions of the game by Summer 2017.
