Living up to its cinematic counterpart, as well as fan expectations, "Friday the 13th: The Game" will have the gore and brutality that is fitting for the title.
Game developer Gun Media released the latest trailer for the upcoming third-person horror-survival game during the PAX East 2017 event over the weekend, showing a number of ways the character Jason Voorhees executed campers. There were simple ones like lifting the victim up top and slamming the body to the ground, head first; and drowning another into a toilet bowl. There are, however, more gruesome scenes shown in the trailer, such as the one where Jason can be seen ramming an axe into the chest of a camper then finishing him off through decapitation.
Furthermore, a report from PC Gamer noted that the model used for Jason was a new one that was created by iconic makeup artist Tom Savini. It was the first Jason to be created since 2009, and it was based on "Jason Goes to Hell."
According to the official website of "Friday The 13th: The Game," fans will get the chance to play as Jason Voorhees for the very first time, using a skill set that is both new and nostalgic. "Every aspect of 'Friday the 13th: The Game' is drawn straight from movies you know and love," said the official game description. "We've carefully crafted this world to remind you of everything you remember about Friday the 13th, right down to the visual fidelity of the 80's. This is exactly how you remember it," it continued.
Moreover, players can also choose to be the campers who will fight for their lives, avoid, and escape the monstrous murderer. The game will be set on the Camp Crystal Lake, just like in the series, where players get to move around, run, and hide amid the lake and cabins.
Gun Media has yet to announce an official release date, although they earlier confirmed that the game will be launched in two separate parts, namely, the multiplayer and single-player campaign. The game is slated to be launched on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
