Fox from ‘Part 3’ is Coming Soon to ‘Friday the 13th: The Game’!

You may remember that we exclusively broke the news back in July that Gun Media was hoping to add the Friday the 13th franchise’s Fox as a playable counselor in Friday the 13th: The Game, the character played by the late Gloria Charles in Part 3.

At the time, the developers reached out to us in an effort to help track down Charles’ family so that they could get the green light to pay tribute to her in the game; they were hopeful that by us writing up an article about their intentions, we’d together be able to find the right contact.

What became of all that? Well, as teased by the team last night, we’re thrilled to report that Fox is going to be the next playable character added to Friday the 13th: The Game!

We’ve had a soft spot for Fox since we first saw her in Part 3,” Gun Media’s Wes Keltner told us over the summer. “She was tough, pretty, and seemed to take time to have fun. I never got the chance to meet Gloria Charles in real life, but something tells me that some of those same characteristics were a part of her real persona too. We wanted to pay tribute to that character, but more importantly, Gloria.It’s a shame that we lost her. My heart sank when I read the news of her passing. We gathered as a team and collectively agreed. If there’s something we can do, we should do it.”

In the meantime, the latest patch, which went live just last night, brings a Part 4 map, Part 4 Jason, rain weathering and Part 3‘s Chuck into the game!

And don’t forget, October 13 – 15 is a Double XP Weekend!

    Aw no Shelly.

  • Khy

    She looks fantastic

    I’m angry we won’t be able to play as counselors in single player. Ugh.

    • Rofair

      Wait, what? When was no counselor single player confirmed?

      • Khy

        A break down of single player confirmed you only play as Jason sadly

        • J Jett

          Khy is that true? that sucks! i was waiting on the single player gig and was looking forward to being one of the counselors trying to escape Jason. being Jason just going around killing people sounds fucking lame to me.

          • Khy

            Exactly. Now I’m not sure if I’m even going to get the game. How disappointing.

          • J Jett

            that’s a bummer. yeah, if it’s just only being able to be Jason (i totally believe you!) then yeah, i’m out. no thanks.

            Why… the whole game was built around the multiplayer experience from day one. Single player is basically just a thank you at this point.

            “the whole game was built around the multiplayer experience from day one”

            That’s the problem

    • Gun Media said something about the Jason A.I. being to difficult to do, with him potentially walking into walls while chasing you and everything. But yeah, it’s disappointing.

  • Necro

    This is so cool! I’m glad they are honoring her in this way! I hope down the road they put all these characters from every film eventually into this game.

    Gloria’s Fox character was awesome! she was more interesting than most of the main group of kids (especially Chris who was as bland as can be). IMO Fox & Vera were the standouts of part 3.
    i wish both Fox & Vera had ended up being duo final girls who despite being enemies (from their encounter at the store) came together to team up and defeat Jason.

    • J Jett, I would have LOVED that outcome. Although it might be considered cliche that sounds like a blast, and despite having a soft spot for Chris I would have rather have seen your theory lol

      • J Jett

        thanx Honey Pie! 🙂

  • They finally got the right? Good on them. It’s nice to have a familiar face added to the game, especially with all the playable counselors being original characters.

  • I want Crazy Ralph as playable character or even as NPC!
