Friday The 13th: The Game has long been anticipated by fans who love the horror franchise it was based on. Well, at long last, the wait is over. That's because the game has finally acquired an official release date.
According to Polygon, Friday The 13th: The Game is slated to hit the shelves come May 26. It will be made available across all platforms, namely PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC. The announcement was made official by the game's publisher, Gun Media.
It is worth noting that the aforementioned publisher along with the developer IllFonic initially planned in releasing Friday The 13th: The Game last fall. However, due to some unexpected changes, the game had to be postponed for early 2017. Among the reasons for doing so is that the developers' want to add more features, most of which have been requested by the fans.
One of the most highly requested feature for Friday The 13th: The Game is the single-player mission. Apparently though, it will not arrive with the game during its launch. However, the studio promises to deliver it sometime in summer. So, in a sense, players will still be getting this feature in one way or another.
PlayStationLifeStyle notes that Friday The 13th: The Game would rather be launched as a multiplayer-only game. This will allow players to take on the very role of the murdered Jason Voorhees. Players will also get to see the villain's different incarnations throughout its existence in the storied franchise (something that has existed for nearly three decades already).
The multiplayer feature of Friday The 13th: The Game will introduce the title places such as Camp Crystal Lake, Packanack Lodge and Higgins Haven. There are basically three maps all in all. Players will go against seven counselors as they try to survive in the aforesaid maps.
