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.
The upcoming game will feature something that the developers are calling “Jason Traps” and the concept sounds very cool indeed.
Here is an image of one of the Jason Traps.
FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE GAME developer Wes recently answered some questions on the F13Game forum about the Jason Traps:
Q: Are Jason's traps the same asset as the counselors trap?
A: No. Jason spent a long time in the woods, alone. Honing his skills as a hunter and killer. This is a trap that he has created,I'm told, using found items in the woods. Old pieces of wood, rusty nails and spikes and perhaps old bed springs from an old mattress to slam the trap shut.
Q: How do Jason traps work?
A: Jason has traps in his inventory (hud icon). Once selected (button press) Jason kneels and places trap on ground, and then covers the trap with leaves.
Q: How many traps does Jason have?
A: Each Jason will have different amounts of traps. For example, J2 might have 5, whereas J8 only 3.
Q: Can Jason set traps anywhere on the map?
A: Jason can only set traps within exterior areas only. He can not set them inside a cabin/building/underwater/docks. Only on ground textures.
Q: Can Jason set traps near doors, windows and the car?
A: Yes. And it's awesome. You might think, at first blush, that this is too OP and could be used to troll. But Jason only has a limited amount of these.
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, for release sometime in 2017.
