Kane Hodder is Back in the Studio for New ‘Friday the 13th: The Game’ Kills

As we just learned this morning via an announcement trailer, Gun Media and Illfonic are bringing Friday the 13th: The Game to Playstation 4 and Xbox One on Friday, October 13th. Of course, the digital release has been available for a couple months now.

One of the coolest things about the game is that the developers are continually making it better, fixing various gameplay issues and adding new content like the recent NES Jason skin – the aforementioned physical release will include brand new “bloody Jason” skins for every single playable Jason.

What else is coming soon? In an in-depth, must-read interview with Games Industry this week, Gun Media’s Wes Keltner noted that players can expect new maps, characters, Easter eggs and other great updates in the near future.

Additionally, Kane Hodder is currently doing the motion capture work for brand new kills!

Various tweets from the developers today confirmed the forthcoming additions.

Check out a video from last year that shows how the game’s kills are brought to life.

    Still waiting for that single player mode they promised…

    • Buk Lau

      They still have a few months to go. I’m expecting it’s going to get pushed back though.

  • Darkknight2149

    I hope the game gets some DLC expansion packs. This was my idea for a “Jason Goes to Hell” DLC from a while back.

      That’s a really interesting idea for a mode. You would need to give players an incredibly strong incentive to split up, otherwise they would band together and there’s no way for Jason to win. A strict time limit that would kill them if they don’t fulfill certain objectives in time. Mic speak would have to be disabled for obvious reasons, perhaps players can only communicate through preset messages / gestures programmed for the mode? Could be a fun one.

    “One of the coolest things about the game is that the developers are continually making it better”. You must be new here…..these developers are sloppy at best.

  • Ocelot006 .

    They need to get some new content out there ASAP to get people back in. Only squeakers are playing the game now.

    Strange that he is considered the best Jason when all his movies sucked ass.

    • Ken Huber

      He is the best Jason, but you are correct the series went completely down hill once he took over as Jason. I still say The New blood, “part 7” where Kane initially came on, would have been one of the best in the series had the MPAA not murdered the murders so badly. There was some seriously gruesome stuff edited out.

      • drew

        I think the best Jason is Part 2

      • drew

        I mean it didn’t make any sense to me why he would look like a bodybuilder. Is he lifting weights in his shack during the off season?

        • boxcar182

          I thought part 6 was the best Jason. CJ Graham I think it was?

      • Justin McGill

        it might have been one of the goriest.. but best? I mean.. even with all the original gore intact.. it still would have some had some pretty awful acting.. and it just looked so dang cheap.. I don’t know what it was but 7 and 8 just looked awful in comparison to 6 and even the earlier entries… even if you HATE 9 with a passion? It still definitely looked like it had a decent budget.

        • boxcar182

          I don’t know, 7 and 8 look like masterpieces compared to 9 haha.

          • Justin McGill

            I am referring to the looks.. To me 9 looks well financed and shot in comparison. I won’t argue the merits of the film itself. Just the aesthetics.

  • Ken Huber

    I feel like this is just a knee jerk reaction to the rumors they were abandoning the game, it does pretty much prove that they are still hard at work on the game, all these things mocap, Kane, cost money. However, that still doesn’t change the fact they need to stop worrying about other projects and get what is without a doubt a serious bread winner for them up to speed. The games been out for awhile now with no new content, the Xbox one version just got updated to that of the PC and PS4 versions like last week, after dragging behind for over a month…And even the latest update still has tons of issues. They are lucky that the core game play of the game is actually fun when it works the way it’s supposed to, but the community is quickly becoming toxic as well. Played a match the other day where the host was running around with a friend in party chat trying to find gas for the boat after they found the propeller. Saw that I had the gas and both of them tried attacking me, when I ran off the host quit the match.

      People have been making up shit about this game since the moment it was announced. Everything from it doesn’t exist, Gun is stealing everyone’s money and not making the game, it’ll never get released after the date was delayed, and now…. they are abandoning it just two months after it’s release. All of this stuff has been proven to be total B.S. as Gun continues to make the game better. Everything takes time.

      I agree though that the community is going to shit in a hurry. I don’t care to play it at all unless I’m in a private match with cool people. Changes definitely need to be made to the engine, starting with player positions disappearing from other player’s map screens. That would cut down a lot of the Jason-teaming we incessantly see.

    Is it just me or is it almost impossible to post and or read comments here anymore? Content just keeps loading, especially when accessing via mobile. Oh how the mighty have fallen…

    • Tony Harley

      Not just you. Scrolling down to get to the comments section is absolute hell and it’s always glitching. Tf is wrong with this site.

    • Saturn

      I dunno what BD have done, but this new format is horrible.

  • Маразм Клинический

    Nobody care.
