NES Jason Being Added to ‘Friday the 13th: The Game’ FOR FREE!

As a thank you for being so patient during the troubled launch these last few weeks, the geniuses behind Friday the 13th: The Game have just announced a special celebration that will see the unveiling of new content that will be released free of charge tomorrow, June 20th!

Announced in the trailer that you’ll find below, the “we’re sorry” pack will include TWO new outfits for each counselor, free CP points to spend, a Double XP weekend from June 23rd through the 25th, and, coolest of all… a brand spankin’ new Jason Voorhees skin inspired by the Friday the 13th NES video game!

Yes, you’ll be able to play Friday the 13th: The Game as 8-bit Jason, and that piece of DLC content will include an original track that brings a retro aesthetic to the game.

Again, this is all FREE on June 20th!



  • Ocelot006 .

    Yay! Something!

  • Ocelot006 .

    And remember: he’s not NES Jason. He’s Retro Jason. 😛

  • Boxcar Racer

    I like how they are releasing this when Dead by Daylight comes out for consoles tomorrow. Well played hehe.

    Thanks for the free stuff though.

  • Yes, yes, yes, yes! I know it’s only Part 3 Jason with different colors, but the fact that the soundtrack is gonna be old school as well is pretty rad. I love this game despite all the hiccups they’ve had since launch!

  • Golic

    If you’re not blinded by nostalgia, you’d all see this for the poorly made crapfest of a game that it truly is.

    • Travis_Bickle

      If you weren’t a cynical millennial you would see the joy in playing hide-and-go seek with consequences!

      • Golic

        Millennial? I was born in 82. Also don’t warship the xeno.

        The concept of this game “hide and go seek with consequences” is awesome…the execution, however, is garbage.

        • Travis_Bickle

          *Repeat previous statement*

        • Ocelot006 .

          Aren’t millennials anyone born after 1979?

          • Golic

            Damn, I just looked it up; you’re right…I guess I am a millennial… *pukes in mouth a little*

        • The Drucifer

          The xeno reference was to your name.

          • Golic

            Yea…I warship the Dragon…Idk wtf a “xeno” is..

          • The Drucifer


    • Jeremy Scott

      If you’re not blinded by cynicism you’ll see that those who like this game don’t give a fuck about your birth and hope you die.

    • The Drucifer

      I like you Golic but you were wrong in worshiping the xeno and you’re wrong now.

  • Travis_Bickle

    So Stoked!! I have been playing this game until my eyes bleed. It makes life worth living.

    • Eastman420

      I gotta try it again played twice got super fucking pissed havent played since.

      • Travis_Bickle

        It takes way less time to get into a game now. It will drop you in a lobby alone sometimes but it’s MUCH better than launch. I live for the game. I am hoping for more maps, more skins, more weapons. Jason ALL DAY!

  • Darkknight2149

    Do you smell that? That’s the studio listening to the fans.

    • The Drucifer

      It smells…good.

    • Weresmurf

      Plus, apparently both Jason X Jasons coming soon AND Jason 4!!!

  • The Drucifer

    People are still bitching that they want Savini for free…you had a year and a half to spend 6 bucks shut the fuck up.

  • Should pack the NES game with this package.

  • Ocelot006 .

    Please stop with the term ‘free’. ‘Included with’ is more accurate.

  • Justin Robertson

    Still no Roy Burns or Pamela? …..about a week ago I asked the creators if we’d ever see them,…but I never got a response.

    • Tor from Yucca Flats

      i’d rather see ted white than roy, but roy could be easy to do, just recolor the part 3 one to have blu stripes and pants same color as shirt, wont be accurate body wise but would be better than nothing

    • Flu-Like Symptoms

      They’ve explained why adding Pamela would be a tedious endeavor. While they implied being interested in putting her into the mix at some point, I wouldn’t look for it to happen any time soon.


    Sure the launch was pretty rough, but come on, what game’s launch isn’t fucked for the first few weeks? “We’re sorry” jeez, with all the pissing and moaning I’ve been seeing on their subreddit and forums, apologizing to those twats is like apologizing to a spoiled little shit for buying him the wrong ninja turtle, get fucked. Man I hate calling myself a gamer.

    • 8-bit Jason

      Amen to that! Fuck I hate people! Always bitching and complaining. To me, they made a fantastic job with the limited resources they had and I’m sure they’re busting their assess to meet people’s expectations. They sure as hell don’t need to apologize to me!

      • Flu-Like Symptoms

        But we’ll gladly take 8-bit Jason!

        • 8-bit Jason

          Oh, we will, brother! 😉

  • Geno1987
  • I never felt so addicted in a online game until I played Friday the 13th. I hope the producers keep releasing new free DLC’s (new characters, more weapons, clothes, and mainly NEW MAPS AND GAME MODES). This game has a lot of potential to be something greater.

    • The Drucifer

      My bet would be free maps and modes but pay dlc for new Jason’s and counselors

  • Ocelot006 .

    If you buy the game, it’s free….so not free. Maybe ‘no additional charge’ but not free.

    • Jack Derwent

      That you have to purchase the game first is a given for any DLC. But given how most DLCs are paid extras, saying that one doesn’t cost anything is free is an accurate assessment.

    • BottomOfLeith

      If you don’t have the game, why would you give a shit whether extra content is free or costs money?
      Did you pay for the extra DLC? No. Then it’s free. Stop being that guy.

  • WOLF

    Yeah the average gamer doesn’t realize only a few people made this game. We are lucky this game exists at all.
    Like the movies, it has problems on a technical level. And like the movies, I love the game. I’m ready to throw money at all DLC.

    • Brandon MisterJuicy Alexander

      10 dudes put together the only video game to capture me in the last 5 years.

      thats saying something.

  • 8-bit Jason

    Are we to believe that Retro Jason will be able to throw his axe? For a one-shot kill, maybe, and like he has to retrieve it or else he won’t be able to perform weapon kills?

    • WOLF

      The ax throw is a JTM kill upragde. Maybe they added it to NES Jason.

  • Nathan O’Connor

    So would I need to buy the game before the dlc releases? Or is it free whenever you get the game regardless of the date?
