Play as Tommy Jarvis in “Friday the 13th: The Game”!

Corey Feldman in Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter

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.

    Hell yeah! I know who I’m playing as!

  • Flyingguillotine

    Now we need playable Kevin Bacon and Crispin Glover.

    • Saturn

      Or “Crispy Bacon”.

    • McGilli

      And if you could pull off Glover’s dance moves that would be awesome…

  • Erik The Red

    I want to get excited for this but I’ll for player’s reviews first before I think about buying this. I think A Nightmare on Elm St game would kick ass.

    • Sweet Reaper

      A Nightmare Game would be amazing with all the technology now if they really put the time and money into it. I’d love it so that when you are in a “dream state” no dream is ever the same and never plays out the same way like you actions and choices provide different outcomes. Also I need the dreams to be big scoped and epic and obviously if you play as a character you create (also should have downloadable characters from the franchise) have a special power of your choice like in Dream Warriors and if you gain enough experience you can purchase upgrades all the way up to Dream Master ability which is you can absorb powers of you fallen friends like Kristen could. Also you MUST be able to play as Freddy voiced by Robert Englund himself!. If they combine all the elements of the whole franchise up until Part 4 cause then they and make this almost like an sequel that takes place between part 4 and 5 for story mode would be interesting to see the outcome and the multiplayer mode is a secondary thing. An even greater thing would be a Freddy Story mode where we go through his backstory playing as Freddy all leading up to the trial and then the subsequent vigilante parents burning him alive and the last shot is him burned and melted on the boiler room floor and he says “see you in your dreams”. Then we begin our single player create a character but it takes place in the late 80’s. I’m sure there is a cool story and game in there somewhere and I could ramble on for a long time but have no actual writing skills but if anyone wants to has writing skills and love the Nightmare Universe as much as I do lets work some ideas out or at least come up with a cohesive timeline and story. Sorry for my rambling lol. I have a strong passion for the Nightmare movies and I could go on all day if I don’t stop here, if anyone is interested in sharing ideas, hit me up on Facebook and we can Private Message.

        A Nightmare on Elm St has a lot more potential than Friday the 13th as a game. Friday the 13th the game looks like it could get boring quickly.

        If they used the first three movies as a template for the game(s). Have two worlds: Reality and Dreamworld. A sleep meter that requires a player to rest at certain times during the game that would require the potential of facing Freddy. Players can only be saved in the real world. In the dreamworld players can only run and defend against Freddy. They cannot beat or hurt Freddy in the dreamworld. Freddy has to be brought into reality to be hurt and beaten. Online could have multiple players in multiple dreams at the same time. You can see other player’s nightmares in real time, you just can’t affect or alter their nightmares unless you’re asked to come in. You can be requested to appear in someone else’s nightmare if asked for help. Just a couple ideas. 🙂

    • Bobby Jones

      i want a Cabin in the Woods game

      • Erik The Red

        That would work well. I believe Hellraiser, Phantasm, and The Hills Have Eyes would make great games.

        The Thing is begging for a game. Always guessing who the alien is has serious potential.

        • Bobby Jones

          there was a game for the ps2 called Extermination that was very close to the Thing. hopefully Friday the 13th opens a lot of doors for different franchises

        • Jimmy McGill

          The Thing had a game. It was on PS2, Xbox, and Windows. It was a sequel to the movie.

  • That game needs a story mode to be a success!

    • Sweet Reaper

      “This initial release will be followed by the full Summer 2017 release of the single-player component, including AI Bots.”

  • Tony Harley

    I wanna play as the first final girl, the final girl with telekinesis and the robot in jason x lol

    • Saturn

      I want to play as Nancy Thompson and see how it goes……

    • J Jett

      Tom, i’d love to play this game as Ginny (part 2), Trish (part 4) or Tina Shepard as long as she could use her telekinesis on Jason!

  • Justin McGill

    I wonder is Thom Matthews voicing Tommy?? The render is clearly modeled after him in Jason Lives.

    • Adam Paquette

      It sounds like him, especially when he says “maggot head”

      • I was wondering that when he said “maggot head”. It’s either him or they just sampled audio from Jason Lives.

        • Jesse Sikora

          Sampled for sure. Same with the “This is between me and Jason”

      • Justin McGill

        I was thinking that too.. world be kind of cool if they got some new vocals.

    • Flu-Like Symptoms

      Yep, he is. I talked about this a couple months ago when Gun announced the game had been delayed. It’s him. http://bloody-disgusting.com/news/3410292/friday-13th-video-game-delayed/#comment-2951553785

  • Adam Paquette

    Ok I was already excited for this game, but I think I might have just came in my pants watching that video of Tommy Jarvis hunting Jason…. God DAMN this game is going to kick so much ass!

  • Rohan Sorensen

    I’m so excited for this and the Texas Chainsaw Mass… i mean, Resident Evil 7!

    • Adam Paquette

      Haha I see what you did there! Yeah I agree, it doesn’t feel like Resident Evil at all.

  • McGilli

    Can you imagine if they made a game like Alien Isolation – Instead of a space station it’s Camp Crystal Lake, Instead of Xeno it’s Jason, and instead of Ripley it’s…

    A story mode would be so awesome….

  • Andrew Lyall

    No offline single player no sale for this old caveman I’m afraid. Which is a shame.

    • Max Schreck

      The reason it was pushed back to 2017 is because they heard the demand for offline single player. So you’ll be able to play offline with bots. “This initial release will be followed by the full Summer 2017 release of the single-player component, including AI Bots.”

      • Flu-Like Symptoms

        The reason it was pushed back is because it was no where near ready in October. They’ve been planning to add single player all along. Mentioning it as a reason for the delay was just smoke and mirrors. Truth is, development fell way behind and they knew they weren’t gonna hit their target probably as early as spring.

  • ShadowInc

    They should add Corey Feldman in his kooky TODAY SHOW outfit to this game. Jason massacring Feldman, and his Angels while they performed ASCENSION MILLENIUM would rule.

  • Jesse Sikora

    Fucking awesome!! But why show Feldman’s pic instead of Mathews ?

    • Adam Paquette

      That’s a good question.

  • J Jett

    i’d rather play as Ginny or Trish.

  • Evan3

    That voice actor does a reasonably good impersonation of adult Corey Feldman. Well done.

  • Shehzad Burney

    I would like to play as Tommy Jarvis in a single player mode. and i have also make a petition for that. those who think the same way please sign this petition.
