Now that the new Friday the 13th got crowd funded on kickstarter, it is aiming for a October 2016 release window. At PAX South, the game creator revealed some nice screenshots of the character models and revealed some awesome sounding Killer Jason moves.
- Jason rips off your leg and walks away with it.
- Jason slits your throat and drowns you in a toilet.
- Jason folds you in half in a beach chair.
- Jason crushes your head in a TBA metal object.
- Jason curbstomps your spine.
- Jason rips the top of your skull off.
- Jason smashes you against a tree in your sleeping bag a la Friday the 13th Part VII
“There’s a lot of brutal kills,” the game’s co-creator and designer Ronnie Hobbs said. “If we get away with half of this stuff it’ll be a miracle.”
“We’re not interested in compromising what made the film franchise so popular. We’re interested in building precisely what we, as fans, want: The ultimate Friday the 13th experience,” they said at the time. Blood, guts, gore, brutal kills, and more. You want an experience true to the films, and so do we. It’s about creative control and delivering the best game we can. We want to share that control, with you, not a publisher.”
Its not just the cool character models that get us excited but more so how the game is to be played. It is a multiplayer game that features 1 player playing as Jason, and 7 others that play as camp counselors that each have different abilities. From a Jock to a Nerd, each have different skill sets and need each other to work together, however you have to be able to trust your teamates!
“The nerd can fix the truck quickly, for example, but can’t run fast. So the jock might want to help him gather heavy parts and tools and then, when Jason shows up, leave the slow, unlucky nerd behind,”.
The game is set to release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC this October!
