A Great Game to Keep the Halloween Spirit(s) Going!

With Halloween right around the corner It would be interesting what gamers on campus have on their to-play list to raise goosebumps, and have a night full of jumps and terror filled shocks. However, I'd like to take a different approach this Halloween. Rather than playing your favorite survivor horror game where you're running around trying to avoid everything that goes bump in the night, why not be that horror and have some fun while doing it. 


Check out the gameplay

There haven't been many memorable stand alone titles for the Friday the 13th franchise, as matter of fact I can only recall  Friday the 13th on the NES as a title that sticks out most over the 2 fairly good PC titles that were released after it. However with Friday the 13th: the Game - which was released in 2017, you get a much bloodier and close to the movie franchise feel. You still have the option to play as either a camp counselor (good luck with that 😂), or as Jason himself, with a wide array of abilities to track, hunt and kill your prey. Stalk from the shadows, scare your targets and kill them when the time is right in as brutal a fashion as you can imagine. And if you've never had the opportunity to play, but love all things Jason this current Friday the 13th title gives you not only quick but fun action, but also the opportunity to change Jason's appearance from the all the canon movie sequels. 

and now for the (slightly) bad news...

Unfortunately for those of us that have played the game for a reasonable length of time and enjoyed teaming up with friends and family in multiplayer, that will come to and end as Gun Media, publishers of the game; will no longer offer it for sale physically or digitally after December 31, 2024, which includes stopping there will future updates to the game. But there's still time to get in on all the gory action before you lose the chance to play this gem of game. 

Yes, it seems like I had you all excited for nothing. Why buy a game that will soon be discontinued. The price of the game itself, of course! Up until the close date the game will Friday the 13th: The Game will be $5.00, including current in game add ons. So, yes; it will no longer be updated and cease to be on the market after the deadline, but those already possessing the game can still enjoy the base game offline which is still a fun way to enjoy the game stemming from a horror genre that will always be a halloween classic at any time of the year... even Christmas. 🤪😂
