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!
