‘Friday the 13th: The Game’ with Kane Hodder and Tom Savini! (Trailer)

Pamela Voorhees is pissed in this reveal trailer for Friday the 13th: The Game!

That’s right. Gun Media has finally unmasked their next game, and it’s not called Summer Camp anymore. The studio is hard at work on bringing Jason Voorhees back to the virtual world of video games, and since I’m positive you’ve skipped my rambling, I’m just going to shut right up so you can enjoy this fantastic reveal trailer.

While working under the title Summer Camp, it was revealed that the teen slasher game was being made by Breach & Clear developer Gun Media, along with Kane Hodder — the most famous Jason Voorhees — and legendary special make-up effects creator Tom Savini (Dawn of the Dead, Friday the 13th). Oh, and Harry Manfredini will be composing the original score.

“Honestly, who else could we have chosen for the role of the killer?” Wes Keltner, co-creator of Friday the 13th: The Game told Bloody Disgusting earlier this year. “Several people have worn the mask, but in our eyes, there was only one. Kane has the body type, the presence and demeanor that personify the unrelenting, undying killing force we’re after for [Friday the 13th: The Game].”

“Everyone has their own skills. One of mine happens to be killing people on screen,” Hodder told us. “When Wes and the team behind [Friday the 13th: The Game] came to me, I jumped at the chance to bring my skills to gamers around the world. Combined with the fact that Savini is on board and Manfredini is doing the soundtrack? This is a no-brainer.”

Gun Media is looking to raise $700,000 via a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to help make this 7-on-1 asymmetrical multiplayer game a reality. It will end a month from now, on Friday, November 13th. Naturally.

Friday the 13th: The Game is slated to arrive next fall for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

    Ah yes, it seems really good!
    However, question is if the player will take role of a survivor or Jason himself. The main concern here for me is that it might become a tasteless killing-simulator if it’s not made properly.

    • Phil

      Agreed. It would be great if you could be either Jason or a victim a la the Jurassic Park game for Sega back in the day where you could play Dr. Grant or as a raptor.

    • Minatao

      the article mentions a 7 on 1 asymmetrical multiplayer. Assuming the 1 in that case is our good mr. voorhees?

  • Ryan Ryugamine

    Seems good. But the fact that it will most likely come out Next fall…

    • We’ve waited a couple decades already, what’s another year?

      • Ryan Ryugamine

        Sounds easier said then done

  • Vengeance1138

    I believe this was to be identical to Evolve, multiplayer only where you choose either to be Jason or the 4 survivors… I really hope this has been changed as Evolve gets old real fast.

    • Blade

      That’s what came to my mind too. I never played that game tho so idk what its like. Lol I don’t want to play as any counselors tho, I just want to hack some people up as my boy Jason 😀

    • James

      I love the idea of Jason multiplayer, but single player would be great in this set up.

  • Taboo

    Mama Vorhees is pissed! I’m quite sad we have to wait till’ next fall 🙁

  • Dave Copsey

    That looks really good… But with all that talent signed on, how come this needs to be a kickstarter? You’d think a gaming company would stump up the cash no problem for something that would DEFINITELY make them their money back?

    • Making a video game is expensive, and Gun Media doesn’t have the same resources that other major publishers (like EA, Activision or Ubisoft) do, so any additional funding they can get helps. Also, there’s no guarantee that any game will be a success, much less a multiplayer horror game based on a property that hasn’t had a presence in video games for nearly three decades.

  • Sov

    If we get to play as Jason, then I have a new favorite game. If we play as anyone other then Jason, then it will be just another generic horror game.

    • HappyHappyHalloween

      Agree. I wanna play as Jason. I’d love more horror games that let you control the villain.

      • You get to play as Jason, according to the devs!

        • HappyHappyHalloween

          That’s awesome. If this game is a success I’d love to see more like it made. So many other great horror characters they can build games around.

          • Josh

            the game is 7 people and only ONE gets to be jason,
            that means the other 6 will have to be counselors
            when everyone wants to be jason….. thats going to get ugly fast lol

          • J Jett

            Josh, EXACTLY! lol.

          • turk

            Actually, I think it’s Jason vs. 7 counselors. And I assume it will be a random selection at the beginning of rounds as to who gets to be Jason. That’d be my guess.

          • Josh

            still leaves 7 disappointed players

          • turk

            So you’re saying that you wouldn’t want to be in a F13 movie unless you got to be Jason? Maybe you should wait for a single player game, then. But it might be a long wait.

          • Josh

            is not me, most people on fb or other sites are all thinking they all get to play jason, most people assume they WILL be jason,
            not sure if they are not readning when donating but everyone is assuming they will be jason.
            like i said… 7 people that will get disappinted about it

          • turk

            Then what these people want is a deathmatch game where everyone is Jason. Hell, you could probably just reskin one of the millions of deathmatch games out there for that. This is clearly stated that it is a 7v1 MMO. And if you want a true F13 game, it almost has to be. I’m not sure how else you could do this game while staying true to the source material.

          • Josh

            no, not a death match
            People are expecting to be Jason and all the counselors are AI game characters, like a single player game (I dont think friday fans realize this is multiplayer

          • turk

            I assumed people knew the difference between single and multiplayer. It’s pretty clear up front what this is.

          • Josh

            everyone thinks they are playing jason lol, proof:

        • J Jett

          Jonathan what is “devs”?

          • Developers. Sorry, I should’ve written that out, haha!

    • Looks like you’ll have a new favorite game then. You’ll have the chance to play as either one of seven Camp Crystal Lake councilors or as Jason Voorhees.

      • J Jett

        Adam, all i can see is all 7 people arguing over who gets to play Jason. lol.

    • Josh

      the game is 7 people and only ONE gets to be jason,
      that means the other 6 will have to be counselors
      when everyone wants to be jason….. thats going to get old fast

  • Thrash13

    First off, it’s great to see something on this! I was wondering when we’d get new info and/or confirmation. I don’t play online much at all, so I hope they include some kind of single player experience as well. Nonetheless, I’ll still be following the situation over the next year.

  • wehoaks

    “This is a no-brainer. 700K please.” is what the quote should really say.

  • Jarbloko

    So…it will be something like Alien Isolation?. im cool with that 😀

  • Breno

    Being a Friday the 13th franchise fan, I need this videogame. But no PS3?

    • MrTorrance

      I still love my PS3 but the system is almost 10 years old.

      • Breno

        PS3 is still useful and PS4 is expensive here.

    • We’re two years into the new console cycle, so expect less last-gen support from here on out. The PS3 and 360 aren’t “dead”, but it takes considerable resources porting a current gen game to those platforms and the PS4/XBO have amassed substantial enough install bases by now for it to not be worth it for many publishers.

      • J Jett

        Adam fuck ’em. i would have happily given money to the kickstarter gig IF they were also including PS3 but since they aren’t forget it.

      • Breno

        Really? It’s sad, PS4 is still very expensive here. I’m not going to buy it so soon and PS3 is still useful for me.

    • J Jett

      Breno, i’m with you. i only just became a gamer this past year (i haven’t played games since…..cough…forever (i’m old. lol) and i would have LOVED a F13 game on PS3.

      • Breno

        I’ve never been a gamer, I’m terrible at videogames lol. I only have three games (actually it’s my brother’s, but we play them together): Saw, Super Street Fighter IV and GTA V.

        • J Jett

          Beno, same here!! lol. i only have 3 games too! Dead Island, The Last of Us and the first Walking Dead game. i’m terrible at them but i would have freaking LOVED a F13 single player game!

    • ishtrpioajtrk

      Its a good thing, the game will look better if its not held back by old hardware.

      • Wes Draven

        But it’s not like Friday the 13th would have the funding to push PS3 beyond its limits though.

  • Josh

    Everyone will want to play jason…. no one will want to be the counselors….
    thats going to suck

    • J Jett

      Josh, i think it would be more exciting to be one of the counselors trying not to get killed! 🙂

      • Josh

        it sounds exciting but from the feedback I saw most people think they get to play jason

    • Wes Draven

      Honest to God, … and I know it’s hard to believe, … but I am more interesting in running away from him.

      • Josh

        lol, it does sound interesting but most people want to be him

  • Nathan Bradley

    Great! I wonder what the stretch goals are, it’s a shame the focus is on the multiplayer though.

  • Reanimated Charlie

    Wait. No single player? So it’ll be Jason vs Jason x 7 multiplayer? haha, that’ll be a riot!

    • H. Voorhees

      Yeah, that kinda sucks

      • Reanimated Charlie

        Don’t worry. I believe there will be a rotation system in place so no two people can be Jason at the same time. However, I would have liked a campaign mode. Some cinematic bits and classic F13 moments recreated in video game!

    • Thrash13

      After reading the kickstarter page, it seems they do have goals to include a single player experience if they raise enough money. That will definitely make it a must-buy for me. They’re going to raise a whole lot more than the $700,000 goal as it’s raised $30,000 since I first checked it an hour ago. I bet they get well over a million for this one, so hopefully the single player experience will be added before release.

      • Reanimated Charlie

        I hope so as well. I would love a single player campaign.

      • James

        Hopefully we get a single player campaign or even AI characters to fill in the multiplayer if you wanna play with friends but don’t have a full group.

  • J Jett

    it’s funny how Kane (who i do like and respect) is a part of this game but yet this Jason looks more like awesome Ted White’s (and even Richard Booker’s) Jason from F13 pt.4.

  • Francesco Falciani

    it looks better than many of the f13th movie…i would like to have the new movie like this game

  • Kenneth Tanner

    This game seems pretty badass, I’m actually looking forward to this game almost as much as the new movie that is going to come out next year.

  • Nathan Bradley

    I nearly went for the early bird but then I spotted that it’s only a discount code you get given and not a full copy.

  • J Jett

    they better work on those actor’s voices if they have them in the game. the “actors” who voiced this video (Mrs. V was pretty decently voiced) are god awful. lol.

    • Dimitri Theodosakis

      This is Very Low Budget compare to Until Dawn Budget liking 30 Million ish

  • John Connor

    Why does this have a kickstarter? Why isn’t it a properly funded game? This is freakin’ FRIDAY THE 13TH and they can’t get proper funding to make an actual game? WTF?

    • Yes, this game is based on a well-known brand, but it doesn’t have one of the “big” publishers behind it. Gun Media’s pockets aren’t deep enough for them to risk investing tens of millions into a project like this, even with the F13 name attached to it. Gun has funded its development for over a year now and they’ll continue to do so until it’s shipped, but they’re resources are extremely limited compared to the likes of EA and Activision, so crowdfunding is going to help make up that difference. Hopefully that makes sense.

    • James

      Honestly going through a major producer could lead to things like cutting out violence and nudity if they’re worried about profits. Funding independently or through Kickstarter help them keep control of what they want to make.

  • Khy

    Excited. I just hope they decide to do that single player mode as well. C’mon!

    • James

      Sounds like they will if they get enough money and they have already broken 100K.

  • Tom Miranda

    this idea was already successfully done on kickstarter. the game was called Last Year and is currently in development. The only real differences seems to be its 5 vs. 1 instead of 7 and you get to choose between an array of different “villains” rather then just having 1

    • Khy

      I hope Last Year is still on track to be made. I remembered they got slammed with a threat of a suit by Sean for having one of their killers resembling Jason too closely and now that Summer Camp has become Friday The 13th and both games are extremely similar…I suspect there might sadly be some hesitance with the Last Year team.

      • Tom Miranda

        They just sent out an update on the game to the backers a couple of day ago, they seem to still be going ahead with it

        • Khy

          Awesome!

          • Dimitri Theodosakis

            So Last Year still coming, When is Release Date for Last Year?

          • Mightygil

            it was always supposed to be 2016, but I’m sure it’s been delayed because of the issues with the f13th people. By how much is anybody’s guess, but as mentioned above they continue working on the game. It will take them longer though because they don’t have a pre-existing group of people to make the game

      • See, that’s what I thought too. Apparently, that’s not the case. I asked the F13 game’s publisher about that nasty situation with Last Year a couple weeks ago and they were surprisingly open about it.

        When Sean approached Kickstarter to get the makers of Last Year to make more of an effort to distinguish their masked baddie from Jason, KS’s strict copyright infringement policies forced the closure of the Last Year KS page. I’ve spoken with the teams behind both games, and there doesn’t seem to be any animosity between the two. Sean was never looking to shutter Last Year, he only wanted to protect the F13 brand.

        As for Last Year, they acquired funding not too long ago, so the project seems to have recovered just fine after that hiccup.

        • jasonsfury

          Project’s going forward, but still think there are some underlying issues there…..

          • Khy

            Eeek draaaama.

          • Halloween_Vic

            Dammm!!!! ^^^^^

          • I’m guessing that the Last Year account is fake.

    • James

      It’ll also have maps like a mall and a high school and suburbia which could be really cool. Hopefully we get both games without any issues.

  • Halloween_Vic

    This shit just made my damm day!!! YES YES YES AND FUCKKK YESSSS!!! The fact that it’s coming to the PS4 platform has me beyond excited!!!! I will definitely be in line buying my copy the day it comes out! Can’t wait for next year’s reveal at E3!!!! This will be bad ass! And the world will fucking deal! THANK YOU GUN MEDIA!!!! Now just give us the option of playing both Jason and the campers/victims and this shit will be endless!!!!!

    • Amber McClurg

      Fund the kickstarter. You get the game at $25.

      • Halloween_Vic

        Niceeeee, thanks I will be!!!!

    • Adam Clifton

      Apparently you will have the option of playing Jason or one of the campers. This game is going to be great if the campaign is a success. It’s currently at $222,012 with the goal to be $700,000

      • Halloween_Vic

        Yes this is amazing!!! I’m so excited that this happening!!! 🙂 thanks for the info!

        • Adam Clifton

          I can’t wait for this game either! Now I’m hoping this paves the way for a Halloween game and a NOES game. Surely Robert Englund can return to do Freddy’s voice if Kane Hodder can come back to play Jason in this new game

          • Halloween_Vic

            I would die if a Halloween game was made!!! Life would be complete if they did that!!! I hope Michael would be next that would be beyond amazing!!!

          • Adam Clifton

            I don’t see why not really. If they thought about it, they could set in any time of the series. Naturally I’m not talking about Halloween 3 or the Rob Zombie movies

          • Halloween_Vic

            Right like set it can completely take place between the original 8 or more so like the original the first half takes place in haddonfield and the neighborhood at night and the myers house, then second half of the game continue to the hospital like Halloween II. It can work!!!

  • Dimitri Theodosakis

    Is everyone here going give 5.00 to Kickstarter?

  • Vader the White

    Okay, I need to get a PS4 or a Xbox One by next fall. Just include a single player mode and I’m good.

    • Coy G Sills

      It’s also being released for PC.

      • Vader the White

        1) I prefer consoles.
        2) I personally own a Mac (don’t go on a rant. Just accept my choice of computer).

  • Mightygil

    I have mixed feelings. I’m a backer of Last Year and look forward to it. This just seems to be copying it, but maybe it would end up being better. Support both or one…decisions decisions…

    • Khy

      They both were originally announced around the same time. Support both

      • Mightygil

        well they were announced together, but there really wasn’t a f13th game until much later. I’ll think about it

  • EmPleH

    Now if they can just make a Nightmare on Elm Street game with Robert Englund doing the voice-over of Freddy, I would be a very happy camper.

  • Johnny

    Cool !!

  • Taboo

    I was going to back this game, but then I found out it would be 3rd person. Why not first person? It’s much better for immersion. I mean not knowing if Jason is behind you adds to the scary factor of it.. Ah well…

    • James

      But 3rd person will give us a better view of the grisly kills

    • Kyle Andrew James Bacon

      Depending what system you get it for, good chance someone could/would make a mod for it to be both. Maybe it does have the option already?

  • KENT YOUNG

    This has potential. I would enjoy a single player experience for times I don’t want to get online.

  • Phendranah

    So keen for this! I would really like to see how hard it is for the 7 counselors to take down Jason.

  • ThunderDragoon

    I’d actually be excited for this if it weren’t solely a multiplayer game.

    • Khy

      With the sheer demand people have for a solo mode and the fact that the developers stated they have possible plans for a solo mode(where you can select a counselor or Jason)- I’m sure they’ll go ahead with that.

    • Seal Clubber

      Yeah I agree …. I would only purchase and play this is a solo mode.

  • Flu-Like Symptoms

    This news completely made my day. A new Jason game has been loooooooooooooong overdue. They’ve definitely got the right people involved.

    • GrammarGuy

      *long

    • Drewskee122

      Do any of you remember the original Friday the 13th on the Nintendo?!! Every time you walk in a house you never knew which room he was in. and the day to night transition was quite suspenseful for a 6 year old version of myself. Awesome news!!

      • Joe V

        Fucking love that game. And you always moved the opposite way around the map while you were walking for ultimate disorientation

  • Db

    I was all excited for an immersive, cut-the-tension-with-a-machete solo player game, ala Alien Isolation. A 7v1 asymmetrical multiplayer game? What the heck? Sounds like a big mistake.

    • Wes Draven

      I think it could lead to bigger, more ambitious things…

    • Joe V

      yeah i’d much rather play games solo

    • Chris Destro Alexander

      Hopefully theres a solo option with bots. Only thing they would have to do would be the AI.

  • TheSlitheryDee

    This and the latest Batman game means I’m going to have to upgrade my PS3. I dig this so so much.

  • Oliver

    Why not just make it like Until Dawn but with Jason instead? Will obviously work and then there’s no need for multiplayer

  • Jason’s disciple

    I want to congratulate Gun Media,Mr.Sean S.Cunningham,Mr.Tom Savini,Mr.Harry Manfredini and last but not least the one and only the king of Friday the13th Mr.Kane Hodder himself for the success of this video game in advance because I know it is going to sell faster than a pare of air jordan sneakers!

  • misskreuger

    I’m pretty excited about this. Will be even more excited if they end up making it playable solo as well. Definitely gonna make a donation to the kickstarter next pay day.

  • Holden

    I will sell my children…..wait…I don’t have any kids…..I’ll sell my friends kids!

  • turk

    Where are these people?

  • Jeff Loomis

    I much prefer paying homage by dressing up like Jason and hacking apart local teens at the nearby camp site.

    Excellent cardio.

  • turk

    No accounting for reading comprehension, I suppose. The term “multiplayer” is pretty front and center in all of the discussions I’ve seen of this game. I’m not sure what kind of multiplayer game would allow for everyone to be Jason except some kind of deathmatch. Anyway, I’m looking forward to playing this as Jason or a camper.
