‘Friday the 13th: The Game’ Launches New Website; New Jason & New Map Coming Soon!

In addition to Friday the 13th: The Game getting a Playstation 4 and Xbox One release on Friday, October 13, we also know that a new patch is in the works that’ll bring smaller, deadlier maps into the game. But what else is coming soon?

Over on the just launched official website for Friday the 13th: The Game, the game’s developers are offering up a whole bunch of upcoming content teases. For starters, a “Spring Break ’84” clothing pack will soon be available, which will allow all of the counselors to rock bathing suits and bikinis.

More importantly, a new playable Jason with unique kills is coming soon!

Oh and what about maps? Well, you’ll be happy to know that a brand new map, based on a film in the Friday the 13th franchise, is in the works… and it’s “coming sooner than you might think.” Additionally, new counselors are soon going to be added, and the site teases that they may be based on movie characters.

As previously announced, new character emotes and kills are also on the way.

We still don’t yet know what that whole “seven black dots, one blue dot” teaser is all about, but keep your eyes locked on the new website for more info!

  • Very excited! This team gets a bad rep for the bugs F13 has, but I’ll always look over that because 1, Ive been wanting a slasher game since i was a child and this could not have fulfilled that more and 2, there are worse bugs out there for different games that I have come across, this is far from unplayable.

    Really glad were still getting content, the only thing that would turn me off from the game is if the developers actually did abandon the game

    • Jeff

      I agree a million percent! Bugs and all, I’ve been waiting for a game like this my whole life!

    • Madstand

      Yes exactly. Gun Media is a small studio. They don’t have the people power or resources to work around the clock to quickly fix things. Yes the game had a rough start, especially on the X Box One. But the game was playable. Anybody remember the Assassins Creed Brotherhood (I think it was that one) debacle where the authentication server didn’t work for over a month? Everyone who purchased the game could not play it. At all. Funny enough the whole idea behind that server was to prevent game piracy….and it ended up only people who pirated the game could play it. All of this from Ubisoft, a huge gaming company. Friday The 13th launched quite well in comparison.

      A good slasher game is “Until Dawn”. No bugs and fun, creative story that changes.

      • JackJonston24

        Except in that game you can’t be the killer,also it’s a QTE fest,not that i mind but it’s not real gameplay,more like an interactive movie .

        And also SPOILER ALERT

        It turns from a slasher game into a supernatural horror when they bring out the wendigo stuff

  • Josh Blitzenbrox Myers

    Aaaaand…that single player mode? Still coming any time soon?

    • Darkknight2149

      For now, I’m assuming that it will either coincide with the physical game or will be released slightly before. One can only hope…

      • Jake

        Or they’ll be dicks and just cancel it, fooling us all that have been waiting.

        • Darkknight2149

          I doubt it. It’s a small indie team, so this sort of thing takes time. If they could have released it by now, I’m sure they would have.

    • Flu-Like Symptoms

      It’ll be out soon.

    • Joe Abernathy

      Considering single player was a stretch goal that wasn’t met and these guys are still doing it, I wouldn’t complain too damn much.

      • Josh Blitzenbrox Myers

        Yeah, I backed it on kickstart so I did my part. Considering they’ve been promising it for ages, and then suddenly dropped the subject around the time that it was supposed to come out I think I’ll complain as much as I’d like, thanks.

  • Travis

    Where. The. Fuck. Is. Single. Player. Mode….

  • Darkknight2149

    My guess is that the new Jason is either Roy Burns, Final Chapter Jason, or Jason X Jason (not to be confused with Uber-Jason, who is probably too over-powered for inclusion in the base game).

    I would imagine that single player will coincide with the physical copy release. Also, we need 1980 skins for the counselors.

    • Darkknight2149

      And before anyone says anything, yes I am aware of the Jason X rights issues that kept him from being in the game before. I am also aware that any number of negotiations could have taken place behind the scenes that we simply don’t know about yet.

  • dukeblues1

    I think the “A new beginning” is kind of a big hint….

    • Darkknight2149

      Yep. It’s probably Roy Burns. I can’t imagine them adding Part V hallucination Jason.

  • Matthew Hutchinson

    “… allow all of the counselors to rock bathing suits and bikinis.”

    Birthday suits, too, or I’m not interested. Some of the best deaths in the franchise happened when the coeds were naked.

    • Brandon MisterJuicy Alexander

      do you have any idea how hard it would be to render realistic floppy boobs?
      lots of running in that game 😀

      • Merc

        You have clearly never played a Dead or Alive game lol

        • Brandon MisterJuicy Alexander

          touche 😀

        • Sky Ferreira

          He said “realistic”

          • Merc

            Also said “floppy”… I’ll take what DoA can do over some tennis balls in tube socks physics

  • AdamX

    Jason X…uber Jason getting to cryogenically kill some folks would be swell.

  • Very well!
    I hope the producers keep working in new content, I’m enjoying this game a lot.

  • drew


    Need Ethel!

  • Update: The content is paid!!!!!

    That’s ridiculous because the game is good but is so incomplete.

  • Jake

    Pissed I spent money on a game I can’t even play. This company is ridiculous with not releasing a single player version yet does all these “updates”. They don’t give a crap about the fans or people buying their product. Had the game been more then just the same game every single time, maybe it would be different. However, it’s the same plot every single time. This company is obviously very overwhelmed with how to make a game…. 3 months and no single player… get with it people.

    • JackJonston24

      Uhm,the fact that it’s an online game is the exact opposite of being the exact game all the time since different type of people play the game in different ways,also how exactly will adding a single player compotent change your complaint ? It would be the same thing,you are either Jason or the campers only this time you would fight against AI . Also to your other complain about the plot being the same,it’s not like the original movies were that much different,all in all your logic is very lacking .

    • Casey Williams

      Did they ever promise a single player campaign? Looked over the kickstarter and it is specifically described as a multiplayer game. Did this change at any point?

  • THEY SPEAK ENGLISH IN WHAT!?!

    It literally says “a new beginning” it’s obviously Roy burns

  • Casey Williams

    If it’s Roy Burns I’ll buy the game.

  • ReaperMike83

    Unless they are releasing the single player, I don’t give a fuck.

    • Derek Parker

      right..they are! I was pissed bought it and then couldn’t fucking play because I didn’t have PSplus!! now thats some BS so I bought that as well and have barely played!! Now I hear they are comming out with a hard copy………..uhh are they gonna send us dummies that bought the digital copy 1….doubt it …..ass out $100 bucks and can’t even play the damned game!!

    • Gjk2012

      Its funny they promised single player and we are still not getting it before or on Friday the 13th of October. They are scumbags. No one should support kickstarter games after this.
