Friday the 13th game to be released October 2015


The first video game of the horror movie classic since 1989 has been announced.

Horror fans delight, as a Friday the 13th game is in development for an October release on multiple platforms.

In an exclusive from EGM, they report that the new Friday the 13th game will be an "asymmetrical, co-operative and competitive multiplayer predator/prey horror experience". Meaning some players will take on the roles of survivors, whilst one player will be Mr Jason Vorhees himself, hunting them down.

It kind of sounds like a role reversal of the new Evolve game, or Left 4 Dead's 4-player co-op when facing the tank in the game.

Sean S. Cunningham, creator of the original Friday the 13th movie, said in a statement: "With a new television series on the horizon and plans announced for the thirteenth installment of the film franchise, we felt the timing was right to finally explore Jason, Camp Crystal Lake, and the rest of the Friday the 13th story in interactive form.

"We have some exciting new ideas for a game that supplies plenty of replay value, while delivering the kinds of thrills and scares that fans of the franchise have come to expect.”

There is no word on which development studio are taking on the project, but Cunningham said that they will be revealed in the coming weeks.
