It seems you cannot keep Jason down as Friday the 13th: The Game has now sold 1.8 million copies.
Friday the 13th: The Game was first released back on May 26th of this year for PS4, Xbox One and Microsoft Windows. The game has seven players playing as Camp Counselors and one player stalking them as Jason Voorhees. The game is set in the 1980s with locations created to help capture the feel of the original series. The main objective for camp counselors is try and find a way to escape the camp or wait till time expires. As Jason, your goal is to kill off the counselors before the time runs out. The game was met with mixed reception and suffered from too many technical issues. Since release, it has constantly been updated to fix these issues and to create a better experience. A single player campaign has been announced to be added into the game in the future updates.
The head of Gun Media, Wes Keltner, talked about the game’s journey and future. He said “While things haven’t been completely smooth we definitely feel confident moving forward. The team has grown and we are committed as we work to add more content, more kills, more to do and of course the single player component to the game.” Other than the game’s sales so far, a physical edition of the game was also announced to release this fall. Friday the 13: The Game will be $40 and available for PS4 and Xbox one on October 13th. Before you ask, yes that means the game is releasing on Friday the 13th. You can buy the game digitally on your consoles or PC now for $40. For anything Friday the 13th: The Game or gaming related, stay tuned to us here at Gamer Professionals.
