UPDATE: We’re giving away beta keys!
Yesterday we shared a whopping 17-minutes of footage from the forthcoming “Friday the 13th: The Game”. It looked awesome, forcing players to prepare for Jason Voorhees’ attack by grabbing weapons, locking doors, and hiding under beds.
And while they missed the Halloween date, horror fans are getting an early Christmas present: Gun Media has gone LIVE with the game’s BETA, which will allow those who pre-ordered to test out the ultimate Friday the 13th experience!
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.
