Friday the 13th: The Game is hacking and slashing its way to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC tomorrow, and the game is looking absolutely brutal. Friday the 13th features a unique asymmetric multiplayer setup that has one person playing as the legendary killer Jason Voorhees, and seven other players playing as camp counselors who have to escape what is very likely certain death. In the video compilation above, MKFireAndIce has put together every single execution in the game, and they're... imaginative.
As stated, you'll be able to pick up Friday the 13th: The Game tomorrow. It's been a long time coming, and fans were quick to help Gun Media smash through its initial crowd-funding goal. This game was made with love, and no shortage of blood, sweat, and tears (and more blood).
“It’s been nearly 30 years since fans have had the opportunity to experience a Friday the 13th video game.” explains Sean S. Cunningham, creator of the Friday the 13th franchise. “Technology has finally reached a level that allows us to produce an experience fans of the franchise deserve. It’s always been a dream of mine to let players fully BECOME Jason, and stalk camp counselors across a virtual Crystal Lake. I’m delighted we’re able to bring this fantasy to life!“
“As you can imagine the conversion from Slasher Vol.1: Summer Camp to Friday the 13th: The Game was a dream come true for our entire team” explained Ronnie Hobbs, of Gun Media. “1v7 asymmetrical multiplayer is a perfect fit for this franchise, and we can’t wait to share our creation with fans across the world.“
You better believe that this is a game that will dominate Twitch streams and LAN parties. Imagine getting together with seven of your friends and rotating who plays as Jason, and seeing who can survive the longest (or slay the most). If you guys dive into Friday the 13th this weekend, check back and let us know what kinds of experiences you had on Facebook or on Twitter. We'd love to hear all about it!
