“Relax babe, it’s probably just Steve trying to scare us.” No mate, it’s not Steve. It’s never Steve. Steve’s probably dead and you’re going to die shortly.
If you’ve never seen one of the 87 Friday the 13th films then you’ve really missed out. Well known for bad plots, worse gore and downright offensive acting, Gun Media and developer Illfonic have decided to release this camp monstrosity onto the world.
After making an appearance in Mortal Kombat X, keen hockey enthusiast Jason Voorhees has returned to his roots – disembowelling sexy teenagers.
The game mechanics actually sound quite interesting: As an asymmetrical multiplayer, one person controls the killer – Jason – while seven others play camp counsellors, who must avoid getting killed in the semi-open world of Camp Crystal Lake. Jinkies.
The game is currently backable on Kickstarter and hopes to revive the long dead classic horror slashers from the 80s and 90s in video game form. Friday the 13th will release on PS4, Xbox One and Windows PC some time after its Kickstarter target is reached.
