Fans were rather upset when Friday the 13th: The Game missed its original “Early 2017” launch date. But don’t worry, the first video game starring Jason Voorhees in nearly 30 years will be available just in time for Summer Camp season… Gun Media and Illfonic have announced it’ll be available to download for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on May 26.
Unlike the earlier Friday the 13th games, Friday the 13th: The Game is a multiplayer contest pitting four counselors against one player who takes control of Jason. If this seems a little unfair, well, that’s the point.
With the base game on its way to completion, Gun Media and Illfonic have begun work on the boxed retail release and a free single-player expansion, both of which are scheduled to be released later this Summer.
Though we haven’t received a new Friday the 13th film since the 2009 reboot, Jason Voorhees has kept himself busy with video game work. In addition to Friday the 13th: The Game, the slasher also appeared as a downloadable character in 2015’s Mortal Kombat X.
