As much as we’re personally loving Gun Media and Illfonic’s Friday the 13th: The Game, we understand that many players just aren’t digging the fact that it’s exclusively multi-player at the moment. The game can only be played with others (either friends in private matches or strangers in public matches), which is a turn off for gamers who prefer single-player action.
But have no fear, because a single-player mode is coming soon.
Last we heard, Friday the 13th: The Game’s single-player option will be slashing its way into our lives at some point this summer, and Gun Media’s Wes Keltner just previewed the hotly-anticipated mode over on Twitter. What can you expect from it and how will it differ from the multi-player gaming available now?
@weskeltner tweeted today…
Think about the game like a film:
Multi-player starts at reel 4. Eeveryone knows Jason is there.
Single-player starts at reel 1. All victims have no idea.
Those who have been playing the game know that the current multi-player mode begins with a cut-scene of Jason attacking the chosen location and killing off a counselor; from there, players are immediately thrust into a situation where they have to try and survive the night. What Keltner is saying here is that the single-player mode will be different in that the gameplay will start BEFORE Jason has made his presence known.
Keltner also noted on Twitter that more maps are in the works!
