Final Patch Announced And Servers To Be Decommissioned For ‘Friday the 13th: The Game’

All good things must come to an end and unfortunately that includes Friday the 13th: The Game. On the official game forum, the lead community developer announced that dedicated servers for the game will be decommissioned in the upcoming patch which is set to roll out in a few weeks. That patch will unfortunately also serve as the final patch for the game with the official forums being locked for good. The game will, however though, still be available for sale.

Friday the 13th: The Game was released digitally on May 26, 2017 and on October 13, 2017 a physical release followed for Playstation 4 and Xbox One. In August of 2019 a Nintendo Switch version was released. The survival horror game was developed by IllFonic and Black Tower Studios with Gun Media publishing the title.

Nine different versions of Jason Voorhees are playable, based on his appearances from the second, third, fourth, sixth, seventh, eighth, and ninth films, and make-up artist Tom Savini’s own Jason created exclusively for backers of the game. As a tribute to the NES Friday the 13th game, a palette swap of the Jason from the third film shows him tinted purple. Each Jason has his own strengths and weaknesses and many also have different weapons.

In addition to genre fans falling in love with the content, the game went on to pick up several awards including “Best Indie Game” at the 35th Annual Golden Joystick Awards and “Best Multiplayer (People’s Choice)” at the IGN Best of 2017 Awards.
