“This is, by far, the largest technical update to release for Friday the 13th: The Game.”
Various additions/changes have been promised in recent months by the Gun Media team, developers of Friday the 13th: The Game, with the next round of updates originally *hoped* for release sometime this month. Today, the team has announced that an April release for the next update is now out of the question… but it’s coming soon.
“As many of you are aware, we have been targeting an April release for the next major update to Friday the 13th: The Game since our announcement that the game would be moving to an updated version of the Unreal game engine. Today we have been forced to accept that the update will not be able to be released in April. The update is shaping up nicely, but there are still a few issues that we need to iron out to ensure the best gameplay experience for our players, and we still need to pass the patch through console certification. Our goal is to make sure the work is done right, and that meant we needed some extra time with it.”
They added, “All of our major reworks and new features – updated game engine, Single Player Challenges, Victoria, Bot AI Improvements, Weapon Switching, Legendary Perks, etc. – are in place in our development builds. However, we are at least weeks away from release, and if major issues are found we will work to solve them before release.”
Every planned update that’s been announced since February 9th will be part of this new update, perhaps most notably the hotly-anticipated Single Player Challenges.
While we wait for more, preview the engine update below.
