Friday The 13th: The Game Creators Are Looking To Add An Iconic Character To The Game
Friday the 13th: The Game has been a big hit with fans of the series, and for good reason – it's multiplayer fun, and it's only gotten better with the patches that have been added to it.
With that, you may notice that characters in the game aren't really based on ones from the films, but rather generic stereotypes (the jock, the hottie, etc.). But Gun Media wants to change that, as they're looking to include one of the better characters from the film franchise – Fox from Friday the 13th: Part 3.
Bloody Disgusting recently reported that the publisher was looking to include Fox in the game as a tribute to the actress that portrayed her, Gloria Charles, as she passed away this past December.
The only thing getting in the way of including Fox is getting in contact with Charles' family, and the team needs help with that. "We've had a soft spot for Fox since we first saw her in Part 3," said Gun Media's Wes Keltner. "She was tough, pretty, and seemed to take time to have fun (swinging on the rope in the barn; 'This feels gooooood!"). 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."
He continued, "We've tried locating agents or members of her estate, but can't seem to nail down the proper contact. That's where I'm hoping the fans will help out. The fans built the films and our game, so we're going back to them to ask another favor. Help us locate her estate and pay tribute to Gloria Charles. We realize this is a small gesture, perhaps trivial to some… but to us and all the F13 fans out there, it's more than that. Let's pay tribute to a wonderful actress and bring Fox back to Crystal Lake."
So if you have any information, feel free to get in touch with the team and let them know. Fox would be a great tribute character for the game!
Friday the 13th: The Game is available now for Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC.
