We’re only 3 1/2 months into 2017 but we’ve already seen some pretty awesome things happen here in the horror world. One of the coolest? Tom Savini designed a new version of Jason Voorhees for the upcoming Friday the 13th: The Game, inspired by Jason Goes to Hell. Savini’s new take on Jason imagines what the slasher maniac would look like if he spent some time deep in the bowels of Hell – his mask is a charred black with deep slashes in it from doing battle with Freddy, and he’s got flaming eyes and spikes seemingly growing out of his body.
Naturally, we all went crazy for the makeup master’s new design, and one fan has now taken it upon himself to recreate the mask for his own collection. Check out his tutorial vid 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.
