It has been reported by Bloody Disgusting that a new Friday the 13th video game is currently in development.
They went on to say it will be an "asymmetrical, co-operative and competitive multi-player predator/prey horror experience that pits a small group of resourceful survivors against a single player in control of the immortal, relentless slasher icon, Jason!"
You get to play as Jason himself now! How cool is that? I mean, there's nothing better than running around the woods as a serial killer trying to kill your friends right?
Another thing mentioned was how the game will not only make references to the classic films. But also to the upcoming Friday the 13th television show.
Here's what Sean Cunningham, the director of the original Friday the 13th has said about this exciting new video game:
“With a new television series on the horizon and plans announced for the thirteenth installment 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,” explains Sean S. Cunningham, creator of the original film that is credited by many as the genesis of the slasher/horror genre. “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.”
Hey, I don't know about you... but I can't wait to get my hands on this game. And on Jason himself.
The studio developing the game has already been picked and will be announced in the next few coming weeks.
Jason is also said to have a major chance of being in the brand new Mortal Kombat game along with Michael Myers as well.
The game will be available on multiple consoles and is set for a release this October.
