So, a while back a Friday the 13th game was happening called Summer Camp. Only it was Friday the 13th game seemingly without Jason Voorhees.

The game, Summer Camp, had horror legends Kane Hodder, Tom Savini, and Harry Manfredini on board then there was an official Friday the 13th game announced which would let you play as Jason – didn’t they do this in the latest Mortal Kombat?


It now seems that the two games are, in fact, the same game… and we have the press release below, as well as the trailer below that and more images below that still. Go, have fun…

Lexington, KY — Oct. 13th,2015 — For the first time in more than twenty-five years, Friday the 13th is returning to the video game world. Gun Media and IllFonic, in partnership with Crystal Lake Entertainment, are proud to announce that Friday the 13th: The Game is set to launch next Fall, 2016.
Friday the 13th: The Game is an online, asymmetric multiplayer experience where one player will assume the role of Jason Voorhees against seven other players assuming the roles of camp counselors trying to survive the night.

Developed by Gun Media and IllFonic, Friday the 13th: The Game will deliver a terrifying combination of features designed to satisfy gamers and fans of the Friday the 13th franchise alike. In addition to bringing the tension and horror of the movies to life, the game will also let players don the mask of Jason Voorhees for the first time and control all new levels of brutal action! The development team had earlier collaborated on the unreleased survival horror-themed game Slasher Vol. 1: Summer Camp and plans to integrate much of that design into the new Friday the 13th game.

“As you can imagine the conversion from Slasher Vol.1: Summer Camp to Friday the 13th: The Game was a dream come true for our entire team” explained Ronnie Hobbs, of Gun Media. “1v7 asymmetrical multiplayer is a perfect fit for this franchise, and we can’t wait to share our creation with fans across the world.”

“It’s been nearly 30 years since fans have had the opportunity to experience a Fridaythe 13th video game.” explained Sean S. Cunningham, creator of the Friday the 13th franchise. “Technology has finally reached a level that allows us to produce an experience fans of the franchise deserve. It’s always been a dream of mine to let players fully BECOME Jason, and stalk camp counselors across a virtual Crystal Lake. I’m delighted we’re able to bring this fantasy to life!”

The development team is also excited to announce a Kickstarter for the upcoming game, designed to expand the scope of the game and give backers the ability to be a part of the franchise forever – by claiming special rewards ranging from early access to the game and unlocking various Jason’s from the films to once-in-a-lifetime access to horror legends and even claiming a role within the game as one of the counselors!

Friday the 13th: The Game is being developed for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation®4, for release in Fall, 2016.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
