Friday The 13th: The Game (Ultimate Slasher Collector’s Edition)
Last year saw the release of Friday 13th: The Game, starring one of slasher movie history’s most iconic serial killer. Now, almost one year after its initial release, Gun Media release their Ultimate Slasher Collector’s Edition.
From the most storied franchise in slasher history comes Friday the 13th: The Game, a love-letter to a date synonymous with horror. Players will get to live out the movies as they take on the role of Jason Voorhees for the very first time in gaming history! Playing as either Jason or a Camp Counselor, gamers will witness the rampaging madness of a cold-blooded killer as he stalks his way through Camp Crystal Lake. The game is a faithful tribute to the franchise, all the way down to the tiniest detail. Whether it’s one of the many iconic film locations that have been chosen for the game, or the various Jason Voorhees models themselves, fans can rest assured that everything in Friday the 13th: The Game has been painstakingly recreated with accuracy in mind. This is truly the love letter Friday the 13th fans have waited more than 30 years for.
The Ultimate Slasher Collector’s Edition comes with a replica Jason mask including straps to either display it on a wall or wear it to scare your friends, and a 13×19″ game poster reminiscent of yesterday’s B-movie posters. On top of that it also includes all available DLC released for the game to date.
Both the PS4 and XB1 versions will be available from 25th September for $69.99 each. For now they only seem to be listed on Amazon US.
A word of caution, though – Gun Media have announced that future content updates for the game have been cancelled after it had found itself in a dispute between director Sean Cunningham and screenplay writer Victor Miller over rights and ownership of the original film, making it “unfeasible now or in the future” to release further content. The studio still plans to offer maintenance patches within the limits of the legal case according to their statement published on Polygon.
