Watch 17 Minutes of Intense “Friday the 13th” Gameplay!

IGN just scored 17 minutes of footage from the forthcoming “Friday the 13th: The Game” that will let players experience life as a terrified camp counselor trying to survive the night in a full match of gameplay.

I’m one of the few people who didn’t like Alien: Isolation, mostly because I’m impatient and just wanna shoot shit, but this footage is awesome. What you’ll see and hear are a group of players attempting to survive (and find a car for escape) for 5 minutes while the police are on their way. The players grab weapons, lock doors, and even hide under the bed. One of the coolest aspects was a “VHS glitch” when one user jumps out of a window in a frenzy! Outside he witnesses a girl being chased down by Jason (played by Kane Hodder) before he’s lifted up by his own throat. The game looks seriously fun, super stressful, and ultra violent. (If only the players got more into character and added panic to their voices, my heart probably would have exploded.)

Here’s the footage with details on the game 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 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.

The game was recently delayed until summer of 2017.

    Saw this the other day and it only made me even more excited for this. I can’t wait.

  • Deadcalm

    Jason isn’t lethal enough.

    • chuck

      Pretty sure he ended up killing more than half of them there. Also there needs to be a fighting chance or why even play.

      But besides that the game looks and feels like I was hoping for.

  • Hockey Machete

    Loved the atmosphere of the game and though I never thought I’d see Kane Hodder running as Jason, I guess that goes to show this game will be packed with surprises for the people playing it.

  • Jason Scarpelli

    Looks like a definite buy

  • Daniel Anderson

    This is looking really good. Just purchased dead by daylight and even though it definitely shows that it cost $20, this is showing more polish by far.

  • Travis_Bickle

    FUCK this looks amazing!! I can’t wait!! Drunken LAN parties!!

  • Flu-Like Symptoms

    I’ve been in the beta mostly all weekend. The game is a hoot! Playing cat and mouse as a counselor is a lot of fun. But, nothing beats that moment when the session begins and you realize you’re Jason. Dog will hunt! I love stalking them. Only regret as Jason is if you’re in a session with more than five people and one respawns as Tommy Jarvis, it can be difficult to get everyone in the allotted 20 mins. But again, this is beta. Lots of bugs to correct and adjustments to be made before release. But, that said, this game is exactly what I hoped it’d be. F-U-N.

  • Charles Cumella

    That looks absolutely amazing!! I do hope they do a single player though, and I know I’ll always be Jason! haha

    • lgb

      They will, it’s been announced and there will be a single player mode and one with AI bots, though that’s coming a little later in the year (Cos it’s adding an entire mode and they want to get out the game close to the promised date as they can.)

    • Scott Brummundt

      You don’t have a choice in being Jason. When everyone queues up for a match it randomly picks one person out of the group to be Jason. The few matches I played I only got to be Jason once.

      • Charles Cumella

        Oh no!! I hope they fix that , so at least you can take turns being Jason, I think that would make it better.

  • PsychoMantis18

    Looks like shit.

    • Scott Brummundt

      Well it isn’t. though it is a beta. as in not a finished product.

      • PsychoMantis18

        Yup, it’s at beta-stage…. and looks like shit.

  • Scott Brummundt

    How about you turn the damn flashlight off man. Jesus.
