An Announcement, a Song and Some Head Smash MoCap from Friday the 13th: The Game

By Kelly Packard, 1 year ago
In honor of Friday the 13th (of May, that is), over the weekend developer Gun Media released three new tidbits for the upcoming Friday the 13th: The Game.

First up, we've got an announcement from Tom McLoughlin, writer and director of Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives. The 1986 film will celebrate its 30th anniversary on August 1st. McLoughlin announced he will be "taking a little time off to return to Camp Crystal Lake" in Friday the 13th: The Game, though he doesn't say specifically what his involvement will be.

Next, another soundtrack tune from composer Harry Manfredini is available for fans' listening pleasure (well, for the ones who like listening to eerie, atmospheric music, anyway). There doesn't appear to be a title for the track yet, right now it's just labeled "Full Track 02." You can have a listen here:

Last but not least, the devs have released behind the scenes footage of their motion capture process for head smashing, and also show us what the finished product looks like in-game. If you've been keeping up with Friday the 13th's progress, you'll recognize the scene from the latest alpha footage. A Friday the 13th game probably needs no disclaimer, but here's a quick warning that it is pretty graphic.

There's no release date yet, but last we heard Gun Media was shooting for a fitting October 2016 release.
