Gun Media and IllFonic have shared new details about Friday the 13th: The Game‘s upcoming single-player content known as Challenges.
According to a post on the game’s official website, the single-player will not be story-driven due to the films not really being known for their narrative.
“We’ve received some messages from fans thinking that some aspect of our singleplayer was story driven,” the post explains. “Sorry to let you down, but it is not. The F13 films weren’t really known for their narrative. Sure, there’s a story in the films, but again, not the focal point per se. It was about Jason, victims, awesome kills and the occasional boob, right? That’s the approach we took with challenges.
“There’s a certain, very popular game, with a bald protagonist in a suit with a barcode on his neck. Yeah, that one. If you played that game, you kinda see the direction we’re going with Challenges. Except you’re not an elite special agent…you’re Jason.”
The upcoming Challenges include killing select Counselors, using specific weapons, and killing Counselors in certain ways.
A demo version of the Challenges system is scheduled to go live later this year, with a full release to follow in 2018.
Friday the 13th: The Game is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
