Here’s Everything You Need to Know About This Week’s New Patch for ‘Friday the 13th: The Game’

Published

on

Last year, the insanely complicated legal issues plaguing the entire Friday the 13th franchise claimed Gun Media’s Friday the 13th: The Game as a victim, ensuring that new content will probably never again be added to the game. But while the developers cannot currently add *anything* new into it, they can at least still fix bugs and maintain the game.

Just detailed today, a new patch will be going live tomorrow (January 30th), and it includes the following fixes and changes…

INTERACTION LOCK – The team has fixed various interaction lock issues, including:

  • Stumbling while dropping an item
  • Entering Combat Stance while swinging weapon

CONNECTIVITY AND CRASHES – Multiple connectivity/crash fixes including:

  • Network Error after joining lobby in Quick Play
  • “Need Updated Client” error

ENVIRONMENT AND COLLISION

  • Falling Animation Loop – Fixed various areas where players enter a falling animation and cannot continue, including:
  • Firewood Logs on Pinehurst Map
  • Cardboard Box on Packanack Map
  • Coffee Table in Jarvis House
  • Counselor Catch – Fixed various spots that could snag the counselors and make them unable to move, including:
  • Cemetery fence on the Crystal Lake map.
  • Safe Spots – Fixed various safe spots where the counselors are unreachable once entered, including:
  • The cemetery in Higgin’s Haven
  • Parking the car inside the barn on Pinehurst
  • Fixed an issue where an invisible collision would occur at the barn fence on Pinehurst, causing the car to shift vertically after restarting the car.
  • Fixed an exploit where counselors could use the car as a barricade at Jason’s shack, affecting several maps.
  • Fixed an issue where the counselors could control their directional axis while climbing through windows, allowing them to reach unplayable areas of the maps.
  • Fixed an issue where counselors are able to reach the rooftop of the Pinehurst Halfway House by escaping Jason’s grab with a pocket knife.

USER INTERFACE

  • Fixed an issue disabling the “More Emotes” button.
  • Fixed the Morph Cursor not showing on Xbox One.

BALANCING AND TUNING
Jason – Buffing Mother’s Special, Special Boy.

  • Weapon Swing – Jason can now swing his equipped weapon to hit multiple targets at once. This will help Jason defend himself against bullies.
  • Stun – It is no longer possible to Stun Jason while he is in Rage Mode unless using a shotgun or Pamela’s sweater.
  • Rage Indicator will show on the minimap when Jason enters Rage Mode.

Counselors – They should have been watching him.

  • Tommy Jarvis – Players who kill themselves cannot come back as Tommy Jarvis.

The patch goes live tomorrow, along with Double XP and Tapes.
