Friday the 13th Gets Delayed to Spring 2017; Gains a Single Player Mode

on October 13, 2016 5:43 PM

Publisher Gun Media announced today that their horror game Friday the 13th: The Game will be delayed into Spring 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. However, the game will include a single player mode that was previously not included.

The publisher states that the delay is “to expand development and inclusion of AI bots”. Additionally, Tommy Jarvis will be a playable character and Packanack Lodge will be a playable map.

Developer Illfonic started the game’s development under a different title, Slasher Vol. 1: Summer Camp, but acquired the Friday the 13th license and turned to Kickstarter for further funding. To fulfill backer rewards a closed beta will be distributed by the end of 2016.

The new single player mode will be available for free for anyone who pre-orders the game digitally or physically.
