Friday the 13th


 

With many teases and promises of new content given to Friday the 13th: The Game‘s players for the past few months, Gun Media and Illfonic have now created a handy guide for what to expect and when—kind of.

The team behind the survival horror game revealed a content update chart on Friday the 13th: The Game‘s official forum. Cleverly, the roadmap is made to look like a camp guide, with various points of interest to give a general idea of when new content will arrive, as you can see below.

The first stretch of content will launch before Halloween, which is marked by a friendly pumpkin on the map. Most of the content was already known, such as the Spring Break 1984 clothing pack, free emotes, and new kills. The Jarvis house map and Part IV Jason skin were announced recently through a short teaser video, and, while there’s no specific date set, it’s likely they’ll launch simultaneously, as Tommy Jarvis and his family home first appeared in Friday the 13th Part IV: The Final Chapter.

The snowflake probably represents the December holidays and the end of the calendar year, which means fans could be getting a look at content into 2018. Apart from two new maps and Jason skins, the major updates are the new game mode and the mention of a single-player mode.

Illfonic’s Joshua Gertz directly addressed single-player mode missing its projected summer 2017 release window, and it seems the team had to take a new direction after the many server issues from launch proved difficult to remedy. Instead of waiting for an entire single-player campaign to be ready, Friday the 13th will receive mysteriously named “single-player challenges,” which sounds more like small missions rather than a full-blown story mode. No further details were given about what players can expect from them, but Gertz did say it made more sense for the team to introduce single-player through separate small updates.

Again, no specific dates are listed for any of the content, but the Spring Break 1984 pack, emotes, kills, counselors, Jarvis map, and new Jason will launch within the next few weeks leading into October 31st.

Friday the 13th: The Game is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
