The Friday the 13th Videogame has been a popular multiplayer game for over a month now, but those who prefer to game alone have so far been left out. Well never fear single player aficionados, because Gun Media, the developers behind Friday the 13th, have a single player mode set to release later this summer, and we just got our first glimpse of what it will entail.
While no gameplay footage has yet emerged, Gun Media developers Wes Keltner gave a tease today on twitter.
“Think about the game like a film: Multi-player starts at reel 4. Eeveryone knows Jason is there. Single-player starts at reel 1. All victims have no idea.”
What this implies is that the single player mode of Friday the 13th will be a stealth game, or at least more heavily focused around stealth than the online free-for-all component. With 13 movies worth of material to pull, there are certainly plenty of missions Jason could partake in. Sure, most end with dead young people, but imagine killing of paintballers like in Part 6, or being swept away in the sewers of New York like Part 8.
There’s no release date beyond “Summer 2017” so far, but hopefully the wait will be worth it. After all, Old Hockey Mask isn’t the type of guy who wants to be kept waiting.
