Here’s the Hellish New Jason Designed By Tom Savini for “Friday the 13th: The Game”

Not only will you be able to play as every version of Jason Voorhees in this year’s “Friday the 13th: The Game, but as we recently told you, makeup FX legend Tom Savini even designed a brand new Jason for you to slay horny teens with. Savini of course designed the original Jason, seen in Friday the 13th (1980), as well as The Final Chapter‘s Jason, so there’s no better man for the job of redesigning the horror icon than he. Not surprisingly, his new Jason is BADASS.

Shown off out of PAX East 2017, Savini’s Jason is the first new Jason to be created since the 2009 Friday the 13th remake, and the model reflects Savini’s interpretation of what might have happened to Jason after the epic finale of Jason Goes to Hell. He was of course drug into the depths of Hell at the end of the movie, and the design is nothing is not, well, hellish.

Check out the new Jason below and be sure to place your pre-order so that you can play as this version of Jason; it’s essentially DLC content, available as a special pre-order option.

Gun Media and developer Illfonic’s “Friday the 13th: The Game”, initially announced as “Slasher Vol. 1: Summer Camp”, was funded through Kickstarter back in 2015.

The game’s full multiplayer component will become available in early 2017 and include Tommy Jarvis as a playable character. Movie setting Packanack Lodge will also be included in this release as a third playable map. This initial release will be followed by the full Summer 2017 release of the single-player component, including AI Bots.

Players who pre-order the game in digital or physical form will receive the single player component at no additional charge.

    What I really want to know is are we actually going to be slaying horny teens in this game? I mean, are they really going to be getting high and fucking? Because I hope so.

  • nicholasmwalker

    not my favorite but still pretty cool. it might grow on me.

  • Such a brilliant fresh take on the the horror Icon. I absolutely love it.

  • Blade4693

    Looks good! Definitely a different and original look, but I dig it.

    • lion7718

      Ghost (Rider) Jason

      • jacobia

        Absolutely, exactly what I thought….in a good way!

  • Matt

    If they made a statue of that, I’d definitely buy it!

  • RiseCowthulhu

    Early 2017……or, you know, whenevs…….

    • Adam Paquette

      Basically. They’re fucking teasing us!

  • Dark Helmet

    I can’t wait until this comes out in 3 years 🙂

    • Blade4693

      Maybe by that time it will actually look like a PS4/XB1 game graphically lol

      Not hating btw im getting the game, but the graphics are look dated.

      • Andy

        All your graphics are belong to us – for the next 3 years

      • Adam Paquette

        yeah, looks more like PS3 era

  • The Drucifer

    EARLY 2017!

  • Ocelot006 .

    Early 2017….so it’s already out? Because it’s you know…..early 2017 right now.

    • Justin McGill

      according to the Pax panel ANY date before May 2017 would be early 2017… they are still aiming to release before then.

      • RiseCowthulhu

        Yea that’s weak. Because Randy actually posted “spring 2017” when the first delay was announced. Then Gun came out and says no, no, that was in error. “Early” 2017! Of course, these were the same guys who wouldn’t admit Fall 2016 was a bust when we were deep into October. And the thing that burned me was they KNEW they weren’t going to make it. They weren’t even Beta ready at that point. If the schedule is sliding, say it’s sliding. Don’t spout BS then proclaim how small and indie you are as justification. Being small might mean the work takes longer. But don’t maintain that you’re going to make dates you know you can’t.

        They just spout the same vague stuff over and over….until, if last year was any sign, the last minute when they will change direction. If they knew Spring, then say Spring.

        Jesus, you could point at anything before June and say “first half of 2017 is early 2017.” But it doesn’t change that the way they’ve communicated things has not been good at all.

      • RiseCowthulhu

        And if they plan for late April….good luck to ’em. Outlast 2 gets my money before F13. I’ll likely get both. But they’re smokin something strong if they think they’re distracting me from the next Outlast title. You know what Red Barrels did? They delayed…then said they were shooting to finish in Q1 2017…which they did …..so they could ship in April.

        They’re small, they’re indie. They described what they were doing…..and did it.

        • Munchie

          Outlast 2 looks fucking terrifying. The demo kicked my ass. Any idea if they’re making it for VR?

          • RiseCowthulhu

            Dunno. I couldn’t survive VR

  • Grimphantom

    Makes you wish that’s how he should’ve appeared on Jason goes to Hell.

    • zombie84_41

      A remake of that flick with this look of Jason will be much needed.

    • Rohan

      Why does everyone’s hate marshmallow Jason? He’s goofy but that would kinda be what he looked like after years of being beaten up and submerged under water multiple times. I like him.

    • Justin McGill

      technically no.. THIS is how he should have appeared in Jason X. although how he came back from HELL.. to end up in the super secret military compound is beyond me.. lol.. but this look would not have made sense in “goes to Hell” because? Well he hadn’t gone to hell yet.

      • RKSDooM

        JASON X is the final film in the original Friday run.
        He is dragged down to Hell in JASON GOES TO HELL: THE FINAL FRIDAY, resurrected by Freddy in FREDDY VS. JASON (or, more accurately, resurrects himself at Freddy’s behest, because he thinks Freddy is Pammy Voorhees). Then is captured by the government after defeating Freddy, just in time for JASON X, where he comes to an appropriately epic end by burning up in Earth 2’s atmosphere.
        At least, that’s how I see it :).

        • Justin McGill

          Haha.. makes sense I guess.. even though they were released backwards.. since Jason X was released before.. But makes sense. Jason returns to Crystal Lake at the end of F v. J. So that would line up with Jason X.

  • Angela M Campany

    Imagine if in Freddy Vs. Jason they would have had this very Jason being dragged to hell via Pinhead’s hooks !! I would have died with excitement !!!

    • Chris Destro Alexander

      Pretty sure Freddy would be more of interest to the Cenobites over Jason.

      • Angela M Campany

        This article was about Jason though that was my reason for the scenario .

  • zombie84_41

    Well damn.

  • chuckobscure .

    So now we have to pre-order just to play single player? wtf is that shit?

    • Justin McGill

      nope.. if you buy it later.. then you can pay for the single player addition as “additional DLC”.. so you don’t HAVE to.. to not have to pay for it later, yes.

  • HorrorMovieSoundtrack

    He’s fucking rad! I’d love to see an 8-bit Jason version in the game.

  • Justin McGill

    they were also showing off THIS render of Jason (with corrected eye socket) for his “Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday” skin, and it also includes a look at what Jason might have looked like under his mask.. with chunks rotted away and skull peeking through.. really really sick stuff. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/495796da3a0df5a7d675c26ea811168082ecd0be1dd7aef9e3f42e5fa5b0f94e.jpg

    • HorrorMovieSoundtrack

      Brilliant!

    • Ocelot006 .

      I’m curious if that is the ‘might have’ look or if that’s based on some JGTH concept art because they had to have at least had some under the mask sketches at the very least.

  • Ocelot006 .

    Quit teasing me. It’s been stressful being a Friday fan these past few years.

  • sblast13

    Hooooooly SHIT! I LOVE IT!

  • McGilli

    You need to be able to walk into a cabin – with a couple in bed screwing – and then kill them right there…..

    Haha how about if two players are low on health – they can take a chance on a ‘health restore’ by getting into bed to screw – but they are unable to stop it for 60 seconds – and if Jason finds you in that time – you’re screwed!

    • J. Ruiz

      Love it

    • Austin Renfroe

      Yes!!!

  • The Drucifer

    I hope they actually stick to their guns and keep this a preorder exclusive so I can lord
    Over everyone. EVERYONE!

  • J Jett

    that’s pretty damn cool!

  • Kaijudude

    Yeah i want this

  • Jeremiah L. Roads

    Freaking badass

  • Josh

    Thid looks like shit…. it is just jason from friday the 13th part 7 but painted yellow and dark brown. Whats so cool about this? It is basically a repaint of friday part 7.
    Is everyone here just savini fanboys ?
    This is terrible.

    • sblast13

      I can see where you are coming from and there are aspects of this design that feel like extensions of the New Blood Jason look, mainly the chain around his neck and the damage to the lower left part of the mask, but this feels like the next step of that design. Most people love the New Blood Jason look and consider it the best Jason design, so maybe Savini wanted to include elements from it.

      Plus the face to this much is much more human looking than New Blood’s “frog face” Jason and the others that came after.

      • Josh

        Theres nothing new about this design except for the fire and the paint. This looks like if a kid took a jason part 7 toy and melted part of the shoulder and then the kid painted the entire figure with brown marker.
        It is a very shitty design
        Not sure why everyone is so happy

    • nicholasmwalker

      i don’t think i have quite the same disdain for it as you do… but i agree that it’s nothing to write home about

    • RiseCowthulhu

      Thad (get it?) must be it. Savini fanboys flooding the net.

      Post reads like the pc elite types who can’t type anything but “graphics.”

      • Josh

        so definitely savini fans defending this ugly design. got it. your reply is more proof that I ever needed.

  • Bart Crowe

    I like the design with the mask but without it looks kinda bland.

  • Flu-Like Symptoms

    My only real issue with it is Jason’s head and face are too anatomically correct. His head is shaped normal and his face is proper. Eyes, ears, and mouth are all even with no natural deformities. It would be hard to imagine this particular Jason having gone through the same ridicule/bullying as a child as the real, mongoloid Voorhees did. But, since it’s just a standalone comical take on the character that bears no meaning in the grand scheme of things, no worries. I think I’ll call him Burning Jason, ala Burning Godzilla, which he reminds me of.

    • Chris Genth

      Hey man what’s up? Thanks for the information u gave me about the game. I totally agree with u on the jason look, but I just had to pre order it because savini did it

      • Flu-Like Symptoms

        Hey Brother, glad I could help. Haha, yea. It’s starting to grow on me.

        • Chris Genth

          I know some people don’t care for it, but it’s like Frankenstein monster when Itcomes to savini. I think the look is bad ass. I can’t wait for this game, I’ve heard people are starting to loose their patience waiting for the game. Some are wanting a refund not me, I’ve been waiting for a game like this since the atari days.

          • Flu-Like Symptoms

            Oh yea. There are snowflakes literally melting down into vapor over the game’s delay. Some of the stuff you’ll see on the game’s Twitter and Facebook pages is just bizarre. I wonder if Rockstar had to deal with this kind of stuff when they delayed GTA5 for six months back in 2013. Some of these people are legit convinced Gun Media created a fake Kickstarter campaign just to steal everyone’s money and no game is being made at all, despite tons of coverage of the development and hundreds of hours of beta play captured from original backers. But, I’m right there with you. Been waiting for a proper Friday game for so long. Feels like an eternity. A couple more months to ensure a working game is fine by me.

          • Chris Genth

            I so agree, my wife pre ordered the game for my birthday pulse got me the jason skin. I’ve been watching all the updates gun media has put out and I’m very impressed. I’ve haven’t seen this much transparency on a game. There’s just no way possible this is fake. I’m with u man

          • Flu-Like Symptoms

            I was fortunate enough to be in the beta. I can confirm 100% it’s real. Honestly, even in beta mode with glitches, freezing, and server crashes… it was still the most fun I’ve had with a game in a long time. It’s literally all I did Christmas week and I was super-bummed when it was over. Getting used to not having it after spending a whole week with it sucked. You’re gonna love it when it comes out.

          • Chris Genth

            Oh man your so lucky, they are really doing this right with all the people involved. When I heard that Shawn Cunningham, kane, and Harry doing the scores I was blown away. I feel like a 8 year old a month before Christmas. My wife says I’m a big Kid, I’m like he’ll yeah. Truthfully the only reason I went out and bought a ps4 was for this game. I’m 44 and been a horror fan since 1979, I’ve dreamed about a game like this.

          • Flu-Like Symptoms

            I feel that. And if alcoholism/drug addiction, adultery, child custody battles, credit card debt, political absurdities, etc are grown up activities….. I’ll take being a big kid any day. Nothing wrong at all with indulging in something that makes you happy.

          • Chris Genth

            I heard that, sometimes I feel my age. Just ordered headphones so I can play online, trying to figure out how to connect headphones to ps4.lol

          • Flu-Like Symptoms

            Are they wired or wireless?

          • Chris Genth

            Wireless, I figured it out just had to read the instructions. Wanna start playing online with some people, when Friday the 13th game comes out that would be fun

          • Flu-Like Symptoms

            No doubt. You’ll be ready to get it on.

          • Chris Genth

            Hey brother? Do u have a ps4, would love to do some gaming with u!

          • Flu-Like Symptoms

            Sure do, Man. Add me: gnrdeth13

          • Chris Genth

            Awsome I will, mine is my name Chris genth

  • EvilHead1981

    Holy shit, that’s Metal! Looks like he could’ve been off the cover of some 80s metal album, which, given the throwback setting, fits.

    Unmasked face looks a lot like a slasher I created in high school called Harold “Hellface” Dutton. The mouth had melted flesh “bars” on it, but the difference was that he also had that shit on his eyes and his nose was melted away (more skeletal).

  • Redsam6

    Not really interested in the game but that looks cool, good to see Savini still doing good work.

  • THGrimm

    Seeing this guy stalk kids at Camp Crystal Lake would be pretty terrifying.

  • Chris Genth

    Fucking awsome, I’m so glad I pre ordered the new jason skin and the game. I’m 44 years old been a jason fan since I was 9. I can’t wait for this game, it’s a horror fan dream come true. All of the trailers look amazing, plus they are making tommy a playable character. My wife says I’m just a big Kid but hey, what’s wrong with that?

  • Colin Christian

    I love that design! A bit surprising,but it kicks ass!

  • THE God

    I dont like it

  • Orc

    they need to work on the unmasked face, looks too normal. I think it is cool Savini is working on the game, but why couldn’t he have just done Ted White’s design? it is not as similar to Richard Brooker’s as many state, well the true fans can see the differences. This looks like a weird VS / 7 and JGTH mash up.

  • dduuurrrr dddduuuurrrr

    Silly looking.

  • John Rocco Squicciarini

    looks dope!

  • Bianca Luedeker

    I made a movie with Tom Savini.
    We had a pushup contest.

  • Chris Genth

    Bad ass

  • Alex Hayes

    This design feels out of place for this game. Don’t get me wrong it looks badass as hell, but the design seems more fitting for the game Dead by Daylight
