Friday the 13th: The Game's Jason screenshot

Friday the 13th: The Game, besides having quite possibly the most boring name ever conceived by man, is an asymmetrical multiplayer game where one player controls Jason Voorhees and attempts to introduce the rest of the players to the sharp end of his machete. But most interestingly of all, due to Jason's penchant for drama he's only ever capable of walking at a brisk pace, which means that Friday the 13th plays a lot differently than most other games in the genre. Jason does get the ability to teleport around in order to compensate for this weakness, but its still a rather interesting concept, and one that has a lot of potential for exciting gameplay on both sides!

If you're wondering what all of this might look like in gameplay terms, allow me to show you the most recent trailer. For those of you that don't feel like watching the overly long intro, simply skip to 20 seconds in the video and you'll be straight in the action. Have a look:

The multiplayer component of Friday the 13th: The Game will arrive at some point this spring, while the singleplayer will most likely come in summer, though there is currently no concrete date available. If you would like to learn more, or just check out some of the previous gameplay trailers, I would recommend you head over to Steam. Enjoy!
