Gun Media’s Friday the 13th Game Trailer Sets Launch Date (VIDEO)
Fans of the iconic 80’s horror slasher film have something to get excited about next month. Gun Media’s Friday the 13th: The Game trailer has finally set a launch date after delays pushing the release of the game to some time this year. The wait, dear readers, is almost over.
For those unfamiliar with the game, Gun Media’s Friday the 13th sets players in an asymmetric multiplayer survival horror game. Gameplay is multiplayer for now, with a single player mode set for sometime this summer. Up to seven players can act as camp counselors in the iconic Camp Crystal Lake, Packanack Lodge, and Higgins Haven, while an eighth player acting as Jason Voorhees attempts to hunt down and kill the other players.
As seen in the trailer above, Gun Media’s Friday the 13th Game features some pretty rad options on both sides of the spectrum. Character customization and multiple skins for Voorhees will help set the tone for all of the creative ways players can attack and defend. The brutal Voorhees is shown breaking down doors, walls, cutting power to buildings, and even stopping cars. This suggests that the semi-open world game will also feature mostly interactive environments for players to use to their advantage.
Gun Media’s survival horror game also features a unique Voorhees ability that enables the hulking monstrosity to locate nearby players and essentially stalk them to their hiding place. Overall, the Friday the 13th game looks to be about as much fun as it is intense. Gun Media and Illfonic are developing this title set to release May 26th for Xbox One, PC, and PS4 to the tune of $40 for a digital copy.
Will the structure of Gun Media’s multiplayer help it survive the influx of survival horror games? Join in on the conversation in the comment section below! Don’t forget to follow the official Twitter for live gaming and entertainment news 24/7!
