Tuesday’s update to Friday the 13th: The Game brings a new map, a new killer, and changes to item spawns. Pinehurst Youth Development Center and Jason impostor Roy Burns both hail from the controversial Part V: A New Beginning. Beware Roy’s garden shears...and those damn enchiladas.
A patch for Friday the 13th rolled out earlier this week that fixes bugs and adds new content, including playable survivor Fox, the feisty biker from Part III. Changes have been made to Tommy Jarvis “to emphasize [his] hero attributes and goals” and encourage players returning as Tommy to help counselors in need.
The next patch for Friday the 13th will eliminate weapons-based teamkilling in public matches, Gun Media said. It’ll also include eight character emotes and smaller versions of the game’s current maps. No release date yet, but given how bad teamkilling has gotten, it can’t come soon enough.
With more than two days to go, Friday the 13th: The Game has reached its crowdfunding goal of $700,000. At $716,000 and counting, it’s possible they might hit some of the stretch goals, too. The single-player challenge mode at $1.6 million seems like it won’t happen, but who knows?
It’s a psycho killer try-before-you-buy this weekend in Mortal Kombat X. If you bought the game but not the DLC, head over to MKX’s Living Towers this weekend to play as Jason Vorhees in what should have been a 13 round battle but ended up only being 6 because that’s no fun at all.
