Friday the 13th: The Game‘s long-awaited single-player challenge mode finally has a release date.
Illfonic and Gun Media have revealed the new feature will arrive on May 24th in a free update on all platforms. As seen in the announcement trailer below, players will be able to take on short missions offline as Jason to unlock bonus content, including 30 new emotes.
Apart from the implementation of the recently teased game engine and graphical update, the update will also introduce several additional features to the survival horror game. Players will have access to a new counselor character, Victoria Sterling, apparently inspired by Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood‘s Melissa Paur. Similar to her film counterpart, Victoria will need the help of other counselors to take on Jason in combat, but she’s quiet enough to keep Jason from easily tracking her. Also, Part VII‘s iteration of the killer will get an update, making his weapons hit harder.
A few previously announced features will arrive in the update, too. The Salt Mines, which is a matchmaking lobby where match quitters are sent, should finally keep perpetual cheaters out of normal play. Jason will also be able to freely swap weapons in a match and perform new grab techniques.
Friday the 13th: The Game is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
