Friday the 13th: The Game is a survival horror video game formerly developed by IllFonic and published by Gun Media. It is based on the film franchise of the same name. It was released on May 26, 2017 as a digital release[3] and later released on October 13, 2017, as a physical release[1] for PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. A Nintendo Switch version was released on August 13, 2019.[2]

ABOUT Friday the 13th: The Game


Friday the 13th: The Game is a semi-open world[4] third-person survival horror game set throughout the 1980s in a variety of locations in and around the fictional Camp Crystal Lake from the Friday the 13th franchise.

After IllFonic's polarized 2012 remake of Nexuiz and Gun Media's Breach & Clear: Deadline in 2015, IllFonic went to work on a game titled Slasher Vol. 1: Summer Camp, with little details on its release date with Gun,[19] in which the story took place in Camp Forest Green.[20] Friday the 13th director Sean S. Cunningham was in talks about an upcoming game based on Friday the 13th with Gun.[21][22] It is also the first video game IllFonic has developed with Unreal Engine 4, departing from CryEngine after the announcement of Project Advena.[23]

Executive director and producer Randy Greenback organized both a Kickstarter campaign and a Backerkit campaign to fund the game's development. Overall, US$422,866 was raised by 18,068 backers in BackerKit and about US$823,704.20 from 12,128 backers in Kickstarter, collecting about US$1,246,570.20 from both platforms, becoming the 179th most crowdfunded project of all time.[3][24][25]

On October 13, 2015, it was announced that Slasher Vol. 1: Summer Camp had evolved into Friday the 13th: The Game,[26][27] with an announcement trailer released by Gun on their YouTube channel the same day.[28] On Halloween, Harry Manfredini uploaded a video to the Gun YouTube channel with files on his computer monitor being partially seen, implying that he was composing music for the game.[29]

Friday the 13th: Ultimate Slasher Switch Edition for the Nintendo Switch was released on August 13, 2019.[2] On November 10, 2020, the dedicated servers were reverted to peer-to-peer matchmaking, due to GunMedia not making any money from the game. However, Wes Keltner and GunMedia have teased that they will be making more horror-based games.

James Kozanitis of GameRevolution wrote: "Is it perfect? Not by a long shot. Indeed, you'll experience graphical bugs and other quirks that break your immersion. But, after getting into Friday the 13th: The Game, and I mean really getting into it, discovering all its intricacies and more technical aspects, these problems will seem so small as to evaporate, and balance issues you once perceived will be corrected. And what's left is a truly unique experience, unlike any other multiplayer game you've played (certainly a cut above other asymmetrical titles), where cooperation, wits, and sometimes ruthless murder are what it takes to survive."[56]

IGN's Daemon Hatfield concluded: "Lopsided gameplay and egregious bugs almost kill the mood of Jason's murder spree in Friday the 13th: The Game."[58] Tyler Wilde of PC Gamer wrote that it "needs more maps, but right now Friday the 13th is a gory game of hide-and-go-seek that's fun with funny people."[59] Austen Goslin of Polygon wrote that "Friday the 13th: The Game mimics the surface level of the classic film series, but misses the spirit."[60]

Friday the 13th: The Game is a survival horror game released on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. It was released on May 26th, 2017 for digital stores and the physical copies were released on October 13th, 2017. The game was released on Nintendo Switch on August 13, 2019.

Friday the 13th: The Game is a semi-open world third-person survival horror game set in the fictional camp of Crystal Lake in the Friday the 13th franchise. The time period in which the game is set is the mid-1980s in order to better capture the feel.

Parents need to know that Friday the 13th: The Game, is a downloadable multiplayer based action game. Like the similarly named movies it's based on, it's definitely not intended for younger audiences. Rooted deeply in the general mythology and lore of those old slasher flicks, the survival-action game pits one person (who plays as Jason) against seven hopeful survivors (who play as camp counselors). There's very little story or nuance to the action here, as the game hinges and is centered on providing a cat-and-mouse, hunt-or-be-he-hunted dynamic in an online multiplayer game. The game's best aspects come to life largely by virtue of the spirit of collaboration and communication it indirectly encourages, which isn't to be discounted, but is clouded by the extreme amounts of violence and gore seen when characters are killed in grisly ways.

Families can talk about violence in games. While the game tries to recreate the nature of violent slasher films, is there any way the game could've been made without the same amount of gore? Does the violence have less of an impact because there's no storyline, so you don't have a connection with the characters you're playing?

This is where I find myself with Friday the 13th: The Game. My experience with it has been terrible, plagued by server issues where bits of the game didn't work properly and sometimes it stopped working entirely. But when it did work, it worked superbly, a thrilling game of cat and mouse where being the mouse is fraught with tension and being the cat is fucking awesome.

I think Friday the 13th will be a fantastic game in about three months' time. Right now it's capable of brilliance, but is a touch thin and not without its flaws. Still, the fact that I've had a good time with it even on half-melted servers demonstrates the strength of its emergent horror. Like the towering killer himself, Friday the 13th has come out of nowhere, and while it isn't invulnerable, it's more than capable of stealing your heart.

There are so many things I love about Friday the 13th: The Game, which all of us here on Bloody have been raving about since its digital release back in May. One of the coolest things about the game is the attention developers Gun Media and Illfonic paid to detail, particularly when it came to recreating the iconic locales from the first, second and third films.

Not only is Kane Hodder the actor most synonymous with playing Jason (he holds the record, appearing in four Friday the 13th films), but he also reprised his most iconic role for Friday the 13th: The Game. Yes, Hodder provided the motion-capture for every single Jason in the game, which really helps take it to a whole new level of fan service.

Friday the 13th: The Game was supposed to get new content well past its initial development, and there is currently a lot of unreleased content that the developers have to sit on until the licensing issues are resolved. With how slow the American legal system can be, it could take months or years before the case sees any resolution, and that's bad news for fans. There have been rumors that the lawsuit will see some decision soon, but there have been no movements in the case as of writing. Until there is progress, fans of the game will have to wait and enjoy what already exists for Jason Voorhees.

In order for a game developer to make an adaptation of a famous character or series, they have to get licensing from whoever owns the rights to that intellectual property. In this case, it was Sean Cunningham who would have been given the rights to projects like Friday the 13th: The Game and the 2009 reboot of the Friday the 13th franchise. He's also the individual who would receive residuals from Friday the 13th: The Game and its updates, and would have greenlit any new Jason or survivor content that was in the works.

Being an online-only multiplayer game, I wanted to wait until after release to review this, in order to make sure that there were more than the handful of journalists who got review copies playing this game, and how that might affect the online experience. To my surprise, there actually are a number of people playing the Switch version of Friday the 13th: The Game. Getting into a game was fast and there was little to no lag during games.

But one of the greatest things about Friday the 13th: The Game is the feeling that you are, literally, playing the film franchise. This is accomplished by how detailed the game is in reference to the Friday the 13th films. So, franchise nerd that I am, I broke down all of the film references in Friday the 13th: The Game.

Friday the 13th: The Game is a third-person horror, survival game where players take on the role of a teen counselor, or for the first time ever, Jason Voorhees. You and six other unlucky souls will do everything possible to escape and survive while the most well-known killer in the world tracks you down and brutally slaughters you. Friday the 13th: The Game will strive to give every single player the tools to survive, escape or even try to take down the man who cannot be killed. Each and every gameplay session will give you an entirely new chance to prove if you have what it takes not only to survive, but to best the most prolific killer in cinema history, a slasher with more kills than any of his rivals!

The entire focus of Friday the 13th: The Game is multiplayer. Survival is entirely up to you, the player, as you either stealthily hide from Jason or work together as a team to escape or bring the fight to Jason. Playing as a counselor is all about risk and reward, giving players multiple means of triumph over Jason! Want to hide in the woods as you wait for the police? Perhaps you want to band together and try to take on Jason as a group? Maybe you and a friend decide to fix the boat on the lake and escape while leaving everyone else to their fate? There are endless opportunities to survive the night, but every choice has a consequence. 041b061a72
