Illfonic’s May 26th launch of Friday the 13th: The Game hasn’t exactly been a smooth one. Kotaku reports that the game has been plagued by glitches and connection issues since its release, and that fan dissatisfaction came to a head recently due to Illfonic’s open beta and impending release of their next game, entitled Dead Alliance. The official forum for Friday the 13th: The Game and other sites like Reddit quickly became filled with statements from fans asserting that the developer should fix Friday before moving on to another game. In response to all of this outrage on the internets, Illfonic’s CEO, Chuck Brungardt, posted an official statement on Reddit about the company’s commitment to both games.
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.
