Friday the 13th: The Game” is on its way and I for one can’t wait. Developer #Gun Media has released a new trailer of gameplay for the game and it’s just as gritty as previous games.

Hack and slash just got a whole new meaning.

For those unaware, “#Friday the 13th: The Game” is an attempt to truly capture the gory magic of the film franchise. Players will be able to play as the camp counselors, Jason, and a few surprise characters from the film series. One such character is Tommy Jarvis. Tommy has defeated Jason multiple times and having him as a playable character may add some hidden abilities players will be able to exploit.

According to the new trailer, Jason will be able to warp around the map, but he's not just limited to fast traveling from different mapping points.

Jason will be able to warp forward while in game.

During the closed beta, many already experienced this, but no one knew if this was going to be an actual feature in the game or if it was a “beta glitch.” Thankfully now we know, and we can start planning out more merciless executions.

In addition to this reveal/confirmation, we get our first look of Jason sporting his design from “Friday the 13th, Part 6: Jason Lives!” This isn’t much of a surprise, especially because we had already been told we would be able to play with multiple designs. We also know that legendary SFX king, Tom Savini, is designing a new look for Jason, specifically for this game.

You truly can't trust anyone in the horror genre.

In addition to this, the trailer reveals Jason won’t be the only one dolling out death to players.

The counselors will also need to be careful when they are trying to escape Jason. The trailer shows a group of the counselors get into a car, thusly escaping Jason (for now). Jason warps to a different map location and stalks another player and right before Jason is about to end their existence, boom, they get hit by the car the others escaped in. Talk about film accuracy.

Friday the 13th: The Game” is going to release in two phases. The first will be the multiplayer experience this spring, and the other will be the single player aspect sometime this summer.
