Brutal trailer unleashed for Friday the 13th: The Game

03.13.2017

So it looks like while the FRIDAY THE 13TH film franchise is currently dead in the water, the series is going to continue in videogame form with FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE GAME. Now, this won't be the first FRIDAY THE 13TH videogame, but it's the first one where you get to play as Jason himself.

Anyway, here's a trailer that premiered at PAX East:

Well, that was more music video than trailer, but at least it was gameplay footage, which puts it a cut above the the usual videogame trailer. And while never really a fan of the franchise myself, I have to admit the idea of a multiplayer game where one person plays Jason (with the meta-ability to teleport wherever he wants on the map) while the rest of the players play (most likely horny) teen counselors just trying to survive seems like the right way to go. Also some of those kills were pretty fuckin' brutal (I'm partial to the toilet drowning and spear-through-the-ear m'self).

Either way, FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE GAME will kill horny teenagers sometime this year, with the multiplayer reportedly being released in summer, while a single player campaign will come out later in the fall.

Extra Tidbit: At least it's not like the NES game where you had to throw rocks at Jason for most of it.

I played it in November early. My friend sponsored the game for some ridiculous amount and is actually one of the councilor characters because of it. I can't wait for release though because it was fun as hell. Its not like an RPG you're not going to play it for like 6 or 8 hours straight daily. But man is it a great game to play for awhile. My only complaint was they needed to work on the animations as they were stiff. They shored up some of that, but they still need to tweak some of it. But

Boring

I'm a fan of the first four Friday the 13th movies, but this looks like crap. I got bored of the trailer sixty seconds in. Personally, I'd rather play as one or all of the campers, a la Until Dawn. I'd be down for another Friday the 13th movie as long as Michael Bay's stamp isn't on it.

You do play as councillors. One person is Jason on the hunt, the other seven play as councillors.

If that's so, it changes my perspective on this game. I'm still iffy on giving it a look, so I'll wait for good word-of-mouth. Thanks for the info.

There's plenty of footage from the beta that was released at Xmas floating around on YouTube.
Even in it's half finished state it gives you a good ideanof what to expect.

I played the BETA over Christmas break

Nothing but fun. Even with the bugs, it was a real fun game. I don't think single player will be fun after playing multiplayer. It's especially great if you get the right person playing Jason. For those that don't know, the game is complete for PC players, but they won't release it until console certification goes through.
