Friday the 13th Video Game – New Trailer and Release Date!

It’s finally here, gore whores! Like us, we know that you fellow lovers of chaos and carnage have been eagerly awaiting the release (or at least the release date) of the video game featuring the world’s most famous slasher: Jason Voorhees. Game creators Gun Media and IllFonic announced the news on Twitter today that Friday the 13th: The Game would be available for Xbox One, PS4 and Steam on May 26th, 2017.

Friday the 13th: The Game is a third-person horror/survival game that takes place at the legendary Camp Crystal Lake. Everything you see in the game is straight from the movies you love. You can play as Jason Voorhees or as a camper trying to survive the onslaught. The single-player part of the game is still on track for this summer.

Along with the blood-thirsty maniacs at Gun Media and IllFonic, there are some other names involved in this game that should be mucho recognizable to fans of the series. Master of SFX Tom Savini served as executive producer and cinematographer on the project, the man behind the mask for four of the iconic films, Kane Hodder, was the motion capture actor for the game AND legendary film composer Harry Manfredini who composed nine of the films for the series was on board to score this huge game.

It’s certainly looking like after six years of not owning a gaming system, this guy will be shelling out some cash for one towards the end of May. Enjoy the new trailer below and keep it locked to Horror News Network for our review of the game itself…if we can pry ourselves away from it.
