Friday the 13th Developers Show Appreciation with Generous Perks for Remaining Players

As the asymmetrical horror game Friday the 13th: The Game approaches its delisting at the end of the year due to the expiration of the license, developer Gun Media plans to express gratitude to its remaining players by providing them with significant perks.



Although the game will no longer be available for purchase after December 31, 2023, it will remain playable until the end of 2024, after which the servers will be taken offline. To bid farewell to the game on a positive note, Gun Media has announced a substantial update for July 6. This update will raise every player’s level to 150 and grant them 30 Legendary Perks, free from any negative effects and programmed to always provide the best possible outcome. Additionally, players will unlock all of Jason’s kills, except those obtained through DLC.

Gun Media conveyed this update through a tweet, explaining that the perks are aimed at reducing reliance on database servers. Game director Wes Keltner stated that providing players with these benefits was the team’s way of ensuring the best experience and expressing a heartfelt thank you as they approach the game’s inevitable farewell.

While fans will be bidding farewell to Friday the 13th: The Game, there is some good news for slasher enthusiasts. Composer Harry Manfredini recently revealed in an interview that he is working on a new Friday the 13th horror game, separate from the existing Friday the 13th: The Game. The upcoming title promises “more realistic looking” characters and is being developed by a different studio. Further details about the game are currently scarce, but it offers hope for filling the survival horror void left by the delisted game.
