Next ‘Friday the 13th: The Game’ Patch Will Include Deadlier Variant Maps

The latest patch is currently in progress.

Gun Media and Illfonic are constantly updating Friday the 13th: The Game in an attempt to make it cooler and also fix gameplay issues, and they’ve just announced over on Facebook that they’ve got a brand new patch in the works that’s going to include some pretty exciting things.

For starters, the free patch will bring eight brand new character emotes into the game, teased with a fun GIF. But that’s not the exciting part…

Also coming are three free variant maps of Camp Crystal Lake, Packanack Lodge and Higgins Haven. Faster, smaller, deadlier.

The new fast-paced maps will be 40% smaller, which should increase gameplay intensity.

We’ll let you know when the patch hits. Meantime, follow the game on Facebook.

    So I’m assuming when single player is released all of this is going to be available?

  • Cali-Chainsaw

    Why don’t they just make more maps?

  • We requested more maps, not the same maps but smaller.

    • The Drucifer

      I want to say they are coming and will probably show up in October. The wait is killing me though.

  • Zairera Washington

    And they are also restricting team killing to private matches only, and you won’t get the betrayal penalty for someone stepping into your traps anymore.

    • The Drucifer

      I play with a solid line up but when I do play public Team Killing is everywhere. First the glitchers, then the squeakers, now the team killers. DOIN IT FOR THE LOLZ, BRO! Fucking turds.

  • Flu-Like Symptoms

    The idea of smaller maps isn’t very appealing to me. I’ll try it of course, but I like the size of the maps the way they are. Ready for new maps like Forest Green, etc.

    • The Drucifer

      Give me some ocean liner or ny sewer levels. As much as I hate Jason X as a movie a spaceship level would be a lot of fun. Really get into the claustrophobic nature of the environment where players can clog hallways and doors.

      • Travis_Bickle

        It took them a year to build the maps already in the game. You think they can come up with a Space map? They just changed the color of another CM and called it a New Skin….I love the game, don’t get me wrong, but have real expectations.

        • The Drucifer

          Haha! So salty…

          • Travis_Bickle

            Not really bro, im a level 78

          • The Drucifer

            99 myself. What do you play on?

          • Travis_Bickle

            PS4

          • The Drucifer

            Heeeeeyyyyyyooooooooo! Dark_Crowe, hit me up some time.

          • Travis_Bickle

            Will Do!

      • Sam

        They can’t without making a whole new game. Think about it. No cars, boats, phone or radio in a sewer or spaceship. The game has to revolve around all the mechanics created otherwise they have to start from scratch. And this took them 3+ years.

  • The Drucifer

    my hope is that the influx from the admittedly crazy amount of copies sold in such a short time will be spent wisely.

    I feel money was a huge issue near release and you can feel it all over what the game released as. It’s better now but not where it exactly should be. Still feels earl access and I hope with the physical release single player and some new maps will be released.

    I do fucking love this game and look forward to its future.

    Any new word on the single-player mode being developed for this game?

  • jasonlives1986

    Christ bo one gives a Fuck about this.

    I want new maps. Not smaller maps that make it easier for the player playing Jason

  • David.

    I hope the team killing in public lobbies thing happens and they take note of greifers standing in doorways or by cars or fuse boxes blocking players. It’s a bummer when none of your friends are online so you wait 10 minutes for a decent set up and someone kills you or blocks you in a bathroom for a few youtube views.

  • Ocelot006 .

    Glad team killing is gone but….I still can’t find a solid crew to play with anymore. It’s all children.

    I feel like now I’m gonna miss team killing. Nothing better than a twelve-year-old calling me an ugly bitch and swing at me with a wrench.

  • Ciaran Woods

    SlasherFilm71 whoever is not a child and would like to get a team together. Love the game but the brats ruin it and the ones who do not where headsets!

    • Brandon MisterJuicy Alexander

      i often mute everybody because of the toxic assholes in the lobbies.

      you play on pc?

      • Eastman420

        Thats what i do just mute the little fucks.

      • Korahn

        I do similar, but also always have a headset, just not constantly talking and yapping in lobby. ie, i speak if I have something game relevant (found keys, phone, etc) and mute myself if trying to stay quiet while hiding from Jason

        • Brandon MisterJuicy Alexander

          i use speakers and a rode mic… and my kids sleep next door to my office, so i often have to use headphones as well 😀

      • Mark B

        I do the same thing. It sucks because this should be a team based game, but the shitheads that get killed want to ruin it for everyone.

        • Brandon MisterJuicy Alexander

          i do like that the dead cant speak to the living, but yeah pretty much.

  • Brandon MisterJuicy Alexander

    i loved this game.
    i hated the community.

    i havent played in nearly 3 weeks because of how absurd some of has become (on pc of course).

    anybody wanting to put together a private game group for it can hit me up with your steam nickname and ill add you.

  • Eastman420

    If its not the little bitches acting like there toughest shit on earth, its the frickin hosts that always quit. You died so what it happens.

    • Korahn

      the only time I’ve ever quit as a host is when there were obvious team killers or jason helpers. Otherwise, even if I die within 60 seconds, I won’t quit the game.

  • Christopher Nickerson

    Let me know when a patch actually fixes issues like all the matchmaking problems, especially on consoles, and adds host migration. Until the this game is dead to me
