Friday the 13th: The Game got its first taste of single-player content today, as the latest patch adds an explorable Virtual Cabin 2.0 and bots for offline play. Most importantly though, this update also reveals that a new Jason skin and map for the game both based on sci-fi outing Jason X are coming to Friday The 13th in 2018.
The new patch adds the following to Friday The 13th: The Game:
It's in the Virtual Cabin that players have discovered the tease of the Jason X content coming in 2018. After solving a puzzle, the upcoming Jason X futuristic 'Uber Jason' skin for Jason Voorhees can be unlocked, and the bio for it reveals that a corresponding 'Grendel' map will be coming in 2018.
Grendel is the ship that Jason X is set on. While Jason X is a terrible, terrible movie, arguably the worst in the franchise, having a Friday The 13th map set on a spaceship is a truly exciting prospect. It would completely turn the game on its head - there's no boats, water, cars, cops, or open areas. It's a brilliant idea and we're excited to see it happen.
And now a look at Shelly in the game...
