Jason Voorhees is back as Gun Media and developer Illfonic have teamed up to create Friday the 13th: The Game. Headed by a Kickstarter campaign, the game is described to be a third-person, asymmetrical multiplayer. One player will control Jason while seven others will be camp counselors at Camp Crystal Lake trying to survive.
“Friday the 13th is the definition of horror to the millions of fans around the world,” writes Gun Media on their Kickstarter page. “A masked killer going after the young and vulnerable; it grabs our attention, it frightens us, and yet we all come back for more. Friday the 13th: The Game will give you the feeling of horror and dread that you expect from Jason Voorhees. This will be the ultimate asymmetrical horror experience unlike anything you’ve seen – a title we’re proud to introduce that is worthy of the name ‘Friday the 13th’.”
The campaign has a total goal of $700,000 as is currently slated for launch in October 2016 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. You can reserve yourself a copy of the game now by pledging at least $25. Be sure to check out their campaign page for the full synopsis.
