In case you haven’t noticed, it’s E3 2016, and there are video game trailers and footage galore being released left and right (hooray!) – including the very first gameplay footage from the crowdfunded Friday the 13th: The Game. And it’s a killer.

The third-person horror survival game will allow players to either take on the role of an unlucky teen counselor at Camp Crystal Lake or – for the first time ever – of Jason Voorhees. But be aware that it’s a multiplayer game, so players will have to rely on each other as a team to survive while one player will get to play as Jason.

The video below, which boasts the 1980s vibe of the early movies, is an early-alpha gameplay from the game, and it allows you to see how players will be able to control and use Jason, as well as see how you can escape the iconic killer from the counselor’s perspective.


Friday the 13th: The Game is a third-person horror, survival game where players take on the role of a teen counselor, or for the first time ever, Jason Voorhees. You and six other unlucky souls will do everything possible to escape and survive while the most well-known killer in the world tracks you down and brutally slaughters you.

For the first time ever, you will have the opportunity to play as Jason Voorhees, the most famous killer in horror. Stalk your prey and ambush them whenever you see fit. Friday the 13th: The Game will include a variety of kills, new and familiar. You’ll even get to unlock various Jason incarnations from the movies as well as two entirely new designs never before seen.

The team behind the game includes a who’s who of Friday the 13th vets, including Tom Savini, Kane Hodder and Friday the 13th composer Harry Manfredini. Friday the 13th: The Game is set to be released on Xbox One, PS4 and PC sometime in the fall 2016.
