Friday the 13th’s Gun Media Issues Apologies to Players With “Cool, Free Shit” – DLC Trailer Here (VIDEO)
The terrifying yet definitely campy horror franchise Friday the 13th made its way onto PCs and consoles everywhere and though there was a profound interest in this player vs. player title, the release was met with less than glowing reviews. With server issues and glitches that, though sometimes absolutely hilarious, often could make the game unplayable, the team behind the slasher game issued a formal apology alongside new (and free) DLC.
Publisher Gun Media recently announced that the upcoming DLC will be completely free for players to “make up” for the issues since launch. We like his style, he goes straight to the point saying that in order to make it up to players, they want to give away some “cool, free shit”. We’re listening…
Overall, Gun Media is very thankful to our fans, supporters, and those interested in the game,” it said in a press release. “We were completely overwhelmed by the amount of users that tried to play at launch, enough to break our servers and force us to upgrade. That process has evened out since then, however we are still working to smooth out the experience even more across all three platforms.”
In the trailer seen below, the upcoming DLC is a retro spin to our favourite campground killer. The chipper music, the modified Jason, alongside the promise fixes to the base game itself – this move is a smart one for the Jason team recognizing the pitfalls faced during launch and making the correct amends to their player base.
Friday the 13th is available now for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 with the DLC launching today, June 20th. Have you gotten a chance to play as our good ‘ol buddy Jason yet?
