Jason Voorhees’ greatest nemesis is back for more in the forthcoming “Friday the 13th: The Game”.
New gameplay footage has been released that shows a grown up Tommy Jarvis hunting down Jason once again.
Jarvis was the first person to defeat Jason, having kicked his ass in Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (Corey Feldman). He was also in Friday the 13th: A New Beginning and Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives, ironically being the one to resurrect Jason by sticking a metal fence post into his corpse.
He’ll go toe-to-toe once again when the video game releases some time in 2017.
Here’s the footage.
The game was recently delayed until summer of 2017.
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 i 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. Prices for pre-orders after as of October 13 will be set at $40 USD digital, $60 USD retail.
