Friday the 13th: The Game’s Savini Jason skin will never be sold as DLC

We have a bad piece of news for Friday the 13th: The Game fans. The devs recently confirmed once again that the Savini Jason skin would never be sold as separate DLC, shattering many players’ hopes.

What you need to know about the Tom Savini designed skin

The Savini Jason is a skin designed by special make-up effects creator Tom Savini. This skin was created as a Kickstarter-only item as a means for the game’s devs to thank their earliest supporters. In this manner, Friday the 13th’s supporters would have something unique for gameplay.

However, not all the backers got that skin. Those who opted for the cheaper options, received only the base-game. In other words, simply backing the game did not automatically meant that you got the skin.

When Backerkit opened after the end of Kickstarter, Friday the 13th’s devs decided to use another method. They offered the skin as a standalone item for $6. The same applied for other exclusive items. Backers were given a menu to choose what they wanted and what they were to get for their level of backing.

We made that clear on Day 1 of the Backerkit that these two DLC were for backers; both Kickstarter and Backerkit. […]

So here we are and here is where we are always going to stand; that skin and those clothing items are not for sale. They are not for secondary sale. They are for those that backed us and have been with us from the beginning. They are the people that took a chance on a campaign that has produced a game that is overall fun. […]
This team stands firm that for those of you who missed out; sorry. You missed out. Our backers believed. They funded. They supported. This is our thanks to them with a skin that is in no way superior to the other versions of Jason present within the game. I am sorry for those that want it now, but you missed out. We did everything we could to ensure that the word got out through our channels, press and otherwise, but the answer remains the same; we will not sell them.

Also, the devs strongly advise you not to buy any second-hand DLC key for the Tom Savini Jason or the counselor clothing pack. The reason is simple: nobody can guarantee you that you won’t get scammed.

We’re sure that you will get the chance to buy a special Jason DLC with similar stats, just different appearance in the future.
