Update: Friday the 13th: The Game’s single-player content won’t feature a story. It’ll just be a series of challenges like Hitman. I’m positive the studio promised a proper campaign but I guess this is the video game industry and promises are meant to be broken…the same way the game shipped. I’m positive I received a press release from them a few months ago saying that they were working on a “single-player campaign”. Campaign by default means story in my opinion. Just seems that they’re disappointed with the fact that the game hasn’t gained a lot of traction and don’t want to put more time in it. Just put out the single-player challenges and call it a day, move onto the next project.
Friday the 13th: The Game is one of the most highly-anticipated horror titles of all time. You will finally be able to take on the roll as Jason Voorhees and Camp Crystal Lake’s counselors. This is the game you’ve been waiting for because it gives you the chance to kill or be killed on Friday the 13th! The title has been delayed numerous times in the past—it was originally scheduled to launch in 2016! However, we finally have a concrete release date today for May 26. We were secretly hoping it would launch on Friday the 13th but sooner is better than later, right?

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 6 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. The game has a lot of gore so it’s not for the weakhearted.
The entire focus of Friday the 13th: The Game is multiplayer. Survival is entirely up to you as you either stealthily hide from Jason or work together as a team to escape. Think you can take Jason on? You and the other counselors will have that chance as well. Be warned though, nothing is ever certain and no one is ever safe!
