We never got to see what is was like for Jason Voorhees when he was dragged to Hell, but as we previously reported, Tom Savini dreamed up what he might have looked like after escaping the clutches of Satan.
Gun Media, who is gearing up to release “Friday the 13th: The Game”, just shared the full reveal of Savini’s new design that lights a fire behind Jason’s eyes, and arms him with the Devil’s pitchfork. You can see unmasked images here.
This version of Jason was offered as a pre-order only item on Backerkit, and as a reward for Kickstarter backers (at appropriately listed tier).
Savini, of course, designed the original Jason, seen in Friday the 13th (1980), as well as The Final Chapter‘s Jason.
Check out a fan’s recreation of the design right here.
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 and was set for release this month. Lucky for those who took part in the campaign at they’ll have early access to beta before the year’s end that will include a code for keys to make it sharable with 4 additional friends.
In addition, according to IGN, 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, adds the site.
