Exciting news broke today for horror fans as EGM Now has revealed that a brand new (and shockingly long overdue) ‘Friday the 13th’ video game is in development.
Currently in development, Friday the 13th will reportedly be an asymmetrical, co-operative and competitive multiplayer predator/prey horror experience that pits a small group of resourceful survivors against a single player in control of the immortal, relentless slasher icon.
This will be the first official Friday the 13th licensed game to feature the hockey mask–wearing, machete-wielding psychopath since players last faced off against the infamous Jason on the NES back in 1989.
The new game, tentatively titled Friday the 13th, is in development for multiple platforms for an October 2015 release.
More details to come as the story develops!
