Friday The 13th Single Player Will Pay Homage To The Films In The Most Brutal Way
As revealed a few weeks ago, the teams at Gun Media and Illfonic unveiled loads of future DLC for Friday the 13th: The Game, including long-awaited Single Player content. Now, Illfonic’s Casey Holtz has recently posted on Reddit, providing new details about the mode and confirming the experience will be made up of three separate components. The Friday the 13th single player mode was also said to pay homage to the long-running franchise by recreating kills featured in the movies.
There have been several posts asking for a bit more detail regarding the upcoming single player mode. Challenges will have homages to the films. For example, you might kill someone in a location the way you might remember from one of the films.”
Holtz clarified by explaining that some of the game’s challenge goals will have players perform movie-inspired tasks as a particular incarnation of Jason. AI in the single-player mode will “go about doing things until they see Jason or a dead body,” and each counselor will react by trying to “survive and escape by hiding, attacking… based on their character archetype.” The update will also add new behavior animations and challenge-specific lines of dialogue for each counselor, as well as a new kill variety for Jason.
Before Friday the 13th single player arrives, virtual murderers can expect a revamped Virtual Cabin to arrive in the coming weeks, which will provide an AI-based way to play as Jason before heading into the multiplayer mode. Virtual Cabin 2.o will expand on the original by also making game maps fully explorable, allowing for a consequence-free look at all the hidden secrets and Easter eggs from various Friday the 13th films.
Friday the 13th: The Game is out now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One in digital and physical versions. Neither the single-player mode or Virtual Cabin 2.o has a release date as of yet.
