Friday the 13th: The Game is a survival horror video game formerly developed by IllFonic and published by Gun Media. It is based on the film franchise of the same name. It was released on May 26, 2017 as a digital release and later released on October 13, 2017, as a physical release for PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. A Nintendo Switch version was released on August 13, 2019.
Friday the 13th: The Game is a semi-open world third-person survival horror game set throughout the 1980s in a variety of locations in and around the fictional Camp Crystal Lake from the Friday the 13th franchise.
After IllFonic's polarized 2012 remake of Nexuiz and Gun Media's Breach & Clear: Deadline in 2015, IllFonic went to work on a game titled Slasher Vol. 1: Summer Camp, with little details on its release date with Gun, in which the story took place in Camp Forest Green. Friday the 13th director Sean S. Cunningham was in talks about an upcoming game based on Friday the 13th with Gun. It is also the first video game IllFonic has developed with Unreal Engine 4, departing from CryEngine after the announcement of Project Advena.
Sean [S. Cunningham] came to us in early 2015, but we quickly discovered these weren't the normal business conversations you would have when you try to secure a license as important as Friday the 13th. It was totally different. It was a conversation built on mutual admiration and respect for what each had created. Sean immediately noticed the passion we had for Friday the 13th, and after several incredible meetings over the next few months, we decided to upgrade our plans for Summer Camp and embrace the Friday the 13th video game license. After several incredible meetings over the next few months, Sean surprised us by offering the Friday the 13th video game license.
On October 13, 2015, it was announced that Slasher Vol. 1: Summer Camp had evolved into Friday the 13th: The Game, with an announcement trailer released by Gun on their YouTube channel the same day. On Halloween, Harry Manfredini uploaded a video to the Gun YouTube channel with files on his computer monitor being partially seen, implying that he was composing music for the game.
Several actors from the Friday the 13th films reprised their roles in the game. Motion capture for Jason Voorhees and Roy Burns was provided by Kane Hodder, who portrayed Jason in The New Blood, Jason Takes Manhattan, Jason Goes to Hell, and Jason X, and is the only actor to play the character more than once. Cast as Tommy Jarvis was Thom Mathews, who played Tommy in Jason Lives, and the character is modeled after Mathews' appearance in the film. Larry Zerner, who appeared in Part III as Shelly, reprised the role when the character was added to the game in December 2017. Also featured are the likenesses of Part III actress Gloria Charles as her character Fox and A New Beginning actor Dick Wieand as his character Roy Burns.
The song "Friday the 13th" by the punk rock band Misfits, from their 2016 EP of the same name, can be heard on any radio in the game and also in the car when escaping. Gun Media uploaded a trailer featuring the song during the game's development.
Friday the 13th: Ultimate Slasher Switch Edition for the Nintendo Switch was released on August 13, 2019. On November 10, 2020, the dedicated servers were reverted to peer-to-peer matchmaking, due to GunMedia not making any money from the game. However, Wes Keltner and GunMedia have teased that they will be making more horror-based games.
Caitlin Cooke of Destructoid gave the game 6.5/10, concluding "There aren't many games that can offer a camaraderie aspect to the survival horror genre, and Friday the 13th delivers in that regard. It could certainly use a lot more fine tuning and adjustments, but for now, it delivers on a solidly campy experience."
James Kozanitis of GameRevolution wrote: "Is it perfect? Not by a long shot. Indeed, you'll experience graphical bugs and other quirks that break your immersion. But, after getting into Friday the 13th: The Game, and I mean really getting into it, discovering all its intricacies and more technical aspects, these problems will seem so small as to evaporate, and balance issues you once perceived will be corrected. And what's left is a truly unique experience, unlike any other multiplayer game you've played (certainly a cut above other asymmetrical titles), where cooperation, wits, and sometimes ruthless murder are what it takes to survive."
Peter Brown of GameSpot gave the game a mostly negative review, writing: "As of now, a week after launch, it's short on content and performs poorly all around, especially on consoles. The story goes that the developers weren't prepared for the amount of people who wanted to jump on day one, but that does little to assuage players who were convinced that they were paying for a finished product. Despite showing potential that may one day be realized, Friday the 13th comes across as an unfinished game that shouldn't have been released in its current state."
IGN's Daemon Hatfield concluded: "Lopsided gameplay and egregious bugs almost kill the mood of Jason's murder spree in Friday the 13th: The Game." Tyler Wilde of PC Gamer wrote that it "needs more maps, but right now Friday the 13th is a gory game of hide-and-go-seek that's fun with funny people." Austen Goslin of Polygon wrote that "Friday the 13th: The Game mimics the surface level of the classic film series, but misses the spirit."
If you want a fun multiplayer experience, Friday the 13th The Game is for you. If you have even the slightest interest in this franchise, you will get a real kick out of this game. Even if you do not, Friday the 13th The Game is still a fun and exciting time and a game that you and your buddies will really love to play together.
As I write this there are five maps in the game. Each one of the maps is based on a particular Friday the 13th movie so if you are a fan of the series that is really awesome. Also, the councilors and Jason himself will differ which is cool. They actually went all out with Jason in this game and being able to play as him as he looks in different movies is really great.
Friday the 13th The Game is a game that I have spent many hours with (mainly on PS4) and I always have a great time. I will say that it is better if you are playing with people that you can talk to and hopefully that fully single-player mode will actually come out. Still, if multiplayer games are your thing this is well worth checking out.
Evil Dead: The Game takes a lot of cues from other survival multiplayer games like Dead by Daylight and Friday the 13th: The Game. Players will get to choose from a couple of iconic Evil Dead characters like Ash Williams and work together to find key items to survive the night.
Through a recent update on the official site of Friday the 13th: The Game, Gun Media announced that the single player mode will arrive soon but it will not have any type of actual story or narrative that guides the player within the game.
This decision is justified, according to the development team, because according to their idea the narrative and the story were not an important part of the films of Friday the 13th, something that was not modified for the game either. 2b1af7f3a8
