Stat Screens Introduce the “Friday the 13th: The Game” Camp Counselors

I want to be best friends with A.J. Mason.

We already know that this year’s “Friday the 13th: The Game” is going to allow you to play as multiple versions of Jason Voorhees, including a brand new one designed by Tom Savini, but what about the camp counselors that will play the role of unlucky victims? You can either play as Jason or a counselor of your choosing, and we’ve just learned more about those counselors.

The game developers just shared bio cards for all the characters, which reveal names and stats like “strength,” “intelligence,” and “speed.” Needless to say, intelligence isn’t their strong suit.

Meet all the new counselors below!

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-mid 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.

  • They look like aliens.

      Yeah they look kinda shitty face-wise. But you don’t see much of their faces fortunately. All in all it’s a decent game. I wish it had more variety, or some kind of story mode. It’s really just 6 or 7 counselors trying to escape the campgrounds while being hunted by Jason (who can fucking teleport I guess) over and over. At least from what I’ve seen.

        I agree. I’ve been excited about this since day 1 but playing the beta knocked down that excitement quite a bit. It was rough. Very simplistic gameplay, bad game performance, and poor quality animations. Pretty underwhelmed.

        That and this game really needs a first person view. Third person takes most of the tension away

  • Munchie

    Jenny Myers is the spitting image of Chris from Part 3. Coincidence…?

    • Vesuvian Villain

      Good call. Was also getting a Violet (5) vibe from AJ, different hair color but same style.

    • Fuzz

      They have her wearing the exact outfit too in other pictures, love the homage.

  • venerablemonster

    The models look more lifeless than in a Zemeckis film

  • Vesuvian Villain

    I’ve had this theory in mind for years now, which is completely based on absent-minded writing of the series.

    Jason is basically supposed to have been this hulking retarded guy out in the woods murdering counselors in tribute to his mom.

    Here’s the thing. Almost every time Jason kills someone, he sets up that body to scare the shit out of his next victim. He very rarely will just leave the body where it fell. He might post it up on a door or set it up so it falls at just the right time. So if we’re excluding the obvious notion that the filmmakers are just trying to make kills creative and ramp up the tension by having counselors find bodies, we have to presume Jason is a pretty creative guy with a dark sense of humor, don’t we?

    This is why I prefer to think of Jason more as his 2 and 3 persona, and I think it would be an awesome thing to implement into a game. Like you get points for killing that may give you advantages, but you also get points for creativity if you set up the victim’s bodies and the leftover survivors find those bodies. Which could bring up the fear meter of the survivors, leading to disadvantages like tripping while running, or making more noise, breathing, anxiety attacks, etc.

    Just a thought.

    • Eldritch Love

      Great idea! And I believe they do have a fear mechanic in the game already where counselors become afraid if in the dark (maybe alone?). Allowing Jason to stage kills could probably use that existing mechanic. They could also implement a “custom victim display” trophy system similar to the custom kills.

      10/10

      Oh he very much has a sense of humor in some of the movies. Especially getting into the later films with Kane. He has a sort of mime humor, along with the films playing meta, like Jason going for the strike, and then the camera smash cuts to a dart hitting a wall. Or the time he launches one of the paint ballers into a tree, and his face peels off of a smiley face carved into the tree he’s impaled on.

    • Meirsch.

      in the various Beta feeds I watched, characters at least acknowledge the fallen corpses of their comrades through dialogue, though I have no clue if there’s any effect on their Fear meter when it happens. Plum idea, though.

  • Vincent Kane

    So Buggzy dies first then Tiffany?

  • Chris Genth

    I can’t wait, I’ve got mine already pre ordered plus got new jason look from savini. I’m so excited I feel like a Virgin on prom night! Lol

    • Necro

      Hahahaha!

      • Chris Genth

        Hey I would love to take the credit for that comment but do u remember who said it? Uncle red in silver bullet, he says that when he’s about to show Marty his wheelchair.

  • The Dark One

    This looks really good can’t wait for it to come out.

  • Adam Clifton

    Oh my… can’t wait to play as Jason

  • Lallen

    I guess they have different costumes too? The close ups shots have different clothes to the group shot.

    • Chip

      Probably, so that you can differentiate between people using the same characters at the same time. Ask the official twitter. They’re pretty responsive to fans. https://twitter.com/Friday13thGame I wonder which of these is the contest winner . They offered one winner to have a character modeled on them.

    • Meirsch.

      There’s a “Clothes” section in each of the profile pictures, so I’m guessing that Chip’s right about some customization in differentiating one version of the character from another.

  • Charles Cumella

    Can’t wait to kill all those counselors! 😀

  • Christian Chandia

    How to pre-order Friday the 13th?

  • Chris Genth

    Yeah it’s one of my favorite movies, they had a article on here awhile back about the movie. Some people were saying they didn’t like the look of the werewolf, said it looked like a bear. I love the movies, and like u said the score is awsome to. Hey did u buy change pre order the Friday game? I’ve dreamed of a game like this, he’ll I went out and got a ps4 just for this game. They’re close to launch, they took the money for the game off my debit so hopefully won’t be long

  • Chris Genth

    Man u sound like me, my wife tells me I’m a big Kid. She let me preorder the game and I got savini new jason look. My wife tells me I’m a big Kid, I’m like he’ll ya what’s wrong with that! Lol

  • Chris Genth

    Yeah my wife is good to me, she puts up with my shit. I make house payment, my truck Payment, and the phone bill. When I pay my part she let’s me buy my kid stuff. I just picked up doom for ps4 and some headphones so I can play with friends.

  • Chris Genth

    Boy brother isn’t that the truth, if momma happy everyone is. Just curious how long have u been married? I’ve been married since 08, my wife is 6 years older than me. I refer to her as my sexy milf, she just rolls her eyes at me.

  • Chris Genth

    Man that’s crazy, u got married in 07, me on 08 and your wife is 7 years older and mine is 6. Ok I think we’re in the Twilight Zone, now if u proceed to tell me your name is Chris I’m gonna shit! Lol

  • Chris Genth

    Oh yes I can relate, I’m 44 and been a horror junkie since 1979. I made sure before I married that my wife loved horror too. That’s all I watch is horror and news, and like u I’m a huge jason fan. I couldn’t image my life without horror. I also made sure my daughter grew up on horror, I’m watching her play resident evil on the ps4

  • Chris Genth

    Yeah I was born in 73, I’ve been a horror fan my whole life. I get pissed off when the public judge us horror fans like we’re monsters. I’ve never been in jail and never hurt someone unless they messed with me or my family. Now I’ve gotta be honest Cordell, I had shudder and wasn’t very happy. Now don’t get me wrong a channel of nothing but horror is a dream come true but I thought is was all b rated horror that had mostly bad acting. This was a year ago so they might have put better movies on

  • Luther Ham Jr

    OH my fucking God.!. THE advertisements in this fucked up site are killing the internet!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Chris Genth

    No I haven’t yet, I’ve heard it’s kinda like my favorite movie of all time ” the thing”. Funny u mention this movie, my wife and me almost rented it on vod. But after we Googled it the reviews were awful. now I know what your thinking, a real horror fan never take into account reviews, we watch it ourselves. It’s 7.99 on demand so I’m afraid to spend the money then it sucks. But that’s awsome to bring that up cause I almost rented it the other day.

  • Chris Genth

    You’ve sold me brother, I’m gonna tell my wife your review and rent it. It’s always nice to get a review from a fellow horror fan. The thing is my favorite movie of all time followed by John carpenters Halloween. I hope I don’t offend u my brother but I don’t care for rob zombies version. I guess I’m old school and the original is my favorite. In my opinion zombie took the shape and turned him into trailer white trash, and I’m white so if that tells u something. People I talk to about robs version get pissed off when I say I didn’t like it. Thank u for the review, my wife and I will definitely rent the void

  • Chris Genth

    That sounds like a kick ass way to enjoy easter. No I haven’t seen voodoo but I heard it was good. My wife just got home from work, she’s prepping the steaks for tomorrow. When she is done were gonna rent the void. When I told my daughter about your good review we put up the trailer on her Xbox. So I’m in northern indiana it’s 8:54 so in a few were gonna rent it. Once again thanks brother, I enjoy talking with people who have the same passion as I do. If I don’t return your email it’s cause I’m watching it.

  • Chris Genth

    Thanks brother just download it on that app on ps4, I’ll contact u tomorrow. By the time it’s over my but will be in bed. Now your on eastern time like me, I’ll get ahold of u tomorrow. Once again thanks Cordell

  • Chris Genth

    Oh man I loved the practical effects, reminded me of the thing. Good movie, now my wife got lost mid way into the movie and then started playing on her phone. But my daughter and me had no problem and liked it. My wife is not a big fan of gore, even though I didn’t think it was gory. Good movie man, I really haven’t been watching any new horror. As u know when it comes to horror it’s a hit or miss. An unfortunately I miss and we rent suck ass movies. The last one we rented was a newer version of Amityville, came out 2015. It sacked major ass, and I’m a huge fan of the old Amityville

  • Chris Genth

    I think it was Amityville terror, but oh yeah I can’t wait for the awaking. They’ve put that movie off long enough. Have u seen the trailer it looks awsome. Yeah I’m a big fan of any kind of haunted house movie. I’ve always wanted to go there and check it out. I saw a while back it was for sale for over one million. Yeah the void ended where there could be a sequel, u know how it is if it makes money they will do a sequel

  • Chris Genth

    I’ve seen apt 143 but I haven’t seen the other. I’ll have to check that out. Oh man do u get Netflix, there’s a movie on there called windmill it’s a good movie. Yes I hope Amityville gets a R rating instead of PG 13, us horror fans always want R for that wonderful graphic violence. Hey man did u have a good easter, music daughter and step daughter came over and I did steaks on the grill. Then was playing resident evil 7 with my daughter, 7 is a little different from the others but it’s fun to play

  • Chris Genth

    Yep just windmill in the horror section. I hate it when people talk shit and are dick heads on here. I had a guy call me a dumb ass so, I told him I bet he lived in his parents basement unemployed and Jerk off to women in the jcpenney catalog. He didn’t have anything to say after that. Which forum is it, I’ll get him we can tag team his ass

  • Chris Genth

    Yeah I told him to stop being a fuckin queef! Lol

  • Chris Genth

    Yeah he’s now told me when u use slander, the debate is over. He’s just a little cock knocker, lol

  • John Palermo

    Can’t wait to play as AJ Mason
