Are you tired with the monotonous psychopathic traits that you so proudly uphold in games such as Grand Theft Auto and Dead Rising? If yes, then all you need is a healthy dose of Jason Voorhees into your system. That said, a 'Friday the 13th' video game has just been announced. Finally. After 26 long years.
Personally, most of us here are big fans of hack and slash stuff. And where most swear by the likes of Saw and Hostel, a Jason-inspired 'Friday the 13th' game comes as sweet music to the ears. However, it is still advised to keep away from Cannibal Holocaust.
With Friday the 13th set to make a grand return to video games in an October 2015 release, series creator Sean S. Cunningham has confirmed that an "experienced game studio" will be given the responsibility to charge of the game ahead. And from whatever that has been gathered from it, the game should successfully match all the gore and slash Jason Voorhees fans have always looked out for.
But the best is yet to come. This isn't one of those suspense titles that only let's you play from the point of view of a scared-to-death survivor on the run. In fact, you also get to play the worm-eaten clothes and a battered hockey mask wearing Jason Voorhees and lay some hate on your unsuspecting victims. Sound sweet, eh?
The Friday the 13th game, as reported by EGM, will "be an asymmetrical, co-operative and competitive multiplayer predator/prey horror experience that pits a small group of resourceful survivors against a single player in control of the immortal, relentless slasher icon." That should instantly remind you of the recently released Evolve.
The site also aptly reminds us that this will be the first official Friday the 13th licensed game to feature the "hockey mask–wearing, machete-wielding psychopath" since players' last faced off against quite the infamous Jason on the NES back in 1989.
"With a new television series on the horizon and plans announced for the thirteenth instalment of the film franchise, we felt the timing was right to finally explore Jason, Camp Crystal Lake, and the rest of the Friday the 13th story in interactive form," explained Sean S. Cunningham, creator of the original film.
"We have some exciting new ideas for a game that supplies plenty of replay value, while delivering the kinds of thrills and scares that fans of the franchise have come to expect," he added.
We are expecting the guts to spew and the blood to flow from the crested machete of Jason when he sneaks up one more time on a group on innocent campers once October hits. Jason lives in all of us!
