A new Jason is out today.
Gun Media’s Friday the 13th: The Game has had its fair share of issues since launching, especially when it comes to server performance. Though these have yet to be fully fixed, the developer continues to improve the game and has announced free DLC as part of the first content update. This launches on June 20th for all players.
The DLC will include a retro Jason with chiptune music composed by Mitch Murder, new clothing for each counselor, 13,000 free customization points and a double XP event schedule for June 23rd to 25th. Gun Media noted that it wanted to “make up for [the issues] and thank you for your patience” via “cool free s**t”. We can dig it.
The developer also said in a statement that, “Overall, Gun Media is very thankful to our fans, supporters, and those interested in the game. We were completely overwhelmed by the amount of users that tried to play at launch, enough to break our servers and force us to upgrade.
“That process has evened out since then, however we are still working to smooth out the experience even more across all three platforms.”
