Hello

I just came across this game on Steam and just wondered if anyone here is playing it ?

I am thinking of buying it later today so if anyone has played it would be nice to know what the gameplay is like.

I will put a link to the game for anyone who doesn't know about it but might be interested.

Thanks Anna

    I havent played, but have seen some long videos on the game.  4 players are councilors and one plays Jason.  The councilors are supposed to find several pieces of an objective to clear tge level.  For example, 3 different parts are required to start a car and flee.  Councilors usually split up to find them.  They have little defense against Jason. They can hide and if he catches them there's a chance to evade.  

    Jason can teleport and use other supernatural abilities to catch the councilors.  When he gets close to them the player can hear the voice chat of the players occupying the Councilors.  He can also see heart beats from a certain distance indicating which direction they are coming from.  

    That's what I gathered from the videos I saw.  Hope that helps.  Let us know what you think of the game. :smiley:

    I found someone on Twitch who was streaming the game who was helpful enough to answer some questions.

    The game is a multiplayer game each match has 8 players with 1 person playing Jason and the other 7 playing Counsellors.

    The only thing which put me a bit off the game and might put other people off is that the only way to communicate to the other people playing is through Mic.

    Apparently there is no ingame chat system but i am going to try the game it looks fun i just need to get a headset with mic.

    This is the link to the Friday The 13th Twitch list if anyone is interested in checking the gameplay out.

    Thanks for the reply i am just watching someone play it on Twitch because she was the only one who answered my question and she's been really nice.

    They must have increased the amount of players you need for each match because the person i am watching has 1 person playing Jason and 7 Counsellors.

    Maybe Jason was killing the counsellors to quick so they needed to add more so they had a chance at surviving.

    I'm going to buy the game it looks fun.

    I have been hoping for a new MMORPG to play but i like themeparks and all i see are sandbox ones being released.

    Ya, they might of changed it or I was just plain wrong. I suppose I remembered it wrong as far as the amount of players.  It does look fun, I just have way too big of a backlog atm to add another game lol. Hope you have fun :smile: .

    My son likes it. It's simple and somewhat limited but he played it like crazy until he unlocked all the Jason skins and finishing moves. As you complete more of the game and accomplish things I guess you unlock different Jason looks from the various movies and different signature kills from each movie.

    He ha some great stories. Players do some crazy stuff in these 1vX survival that you don't see in regular FPS. He caught this one counselor who bargained with him and led him to the other counselors in exchange for his freedom and letting him go when all the others were dead. Needless to say it didn't work out so well for that counselor in the end either. The betrayer was betrayed.

    edit: He did say it could be a bit buggy at times but that didn't stop him from playing.

    I do own this game. I've had it since it came out. Unfortunately, I wouldn't recommend it. :s  They did just release a new patch, but I tried playing again last night and still the same cheesy, buggy, and disappointing game. I hope this helps.

    It’s ok for a few rounds... nothing memorable or that you would play long term
