Friday the 13th’s Jason Vorhees is one of the most beloved horror movie monsters and after 12 films, this character has many fans who follow all of his grotesque exploits. The murderous momma’s boy who lurks in Camp Crystal Lake, prowling for unwitting teenage victims has already become a genre institution.
Friday the 13th: The Game to be released on May 26
Fans have been looking forward to Gun Media’s upcoming officially licensed title Friday the 13th: The Game for quite a while now. The game features both single and multiplayer modes and casts players as either Jason’s role or one of the teenage counselors from Camp Crystal Lake.
If you choose Jason, you’ll have to get rid of all the other player through a multitude of horrific killing animations designed by Tom Savini, the gore effect legend.
If you choose to play the counselor, you only have to survive Jason’s rampage.
Bloody Disgusting has revealed that after further delays, Friday the 13th: The Game finally received a release date of May 26, 2017. Friday the 13th: The Game was previously announced for launch back in October but those plans turned out to be quite premature.
In addition to Savini, the game will also feature actor Kane Hodder for the motion capture for the killings. Hodder played Jason in the Friday the 13th 7, 8, 9, and 10 and was replaced for the 2003 mash-up Freddy vs. Jason. Another important figure will be the composer Harry Manfredini who contributed to almost all the Friday the 13th entries.
Friday the 13th: The Game will be available for PS4, PC and Xbox One starting May 26, 2017.
