The developers behind “Friday the 13th: The Game”, coming soon for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One consoles, have been gradually releasing areas of its “Virtual Cabin” to explore ahead of the official release date. The latest landscape to become available virtually is The Conservatory, the game’s first outdoor environment. This branch of the Virtual Cabin, a PC-exclusive standalone game with a $15 price tag, follows earlier virtual releases for The Counselors, Jason’s Chambers, and others.
Gun Media and Ilfonic, the makers of the upcoming game, are hoping to create buzz around their version of Friday the 13th. This game will mark the first video game foray for the iconic franchise since the well-received Nintendo edition debuted in 1989. And of course, who can forget the awesome game music score, with the repetitive sound that will keep you up at night even if the slightly-terrifying graphics wouldn’t. A successful Kickstarter campaign raised close to $1 million, ensuring that diehard fans of Jason Voorhees and Camp Crystal Lake would be able to play as the teen-slaying slasher on their home gaming consoles once more.
For the latest Virtual Cabin update, players are able to explore a campsite, picking up on clues and references to the various films making up the entire Friday the 13th franchise. In a post on the game’s Steam page, developers exclaimed that “We’ve unlocked the Conservatory!”
“You can now check out props and assets outside of the virtual cabin and get a peek at some of the content you’ll be seeing in-game! The space is rather large, so be sure to find all of the little hidden things we’ve added!”
Friday the 13th: The Game ($60) is due to be released for the PC, Playstation and Xbox gaming consoles this October. The Virtual Cabin is available to download now at https://friday-the-13th-the-game.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders/37461.
