The developers of the highly anticipated Friday the 13th: The Game announced today that the horror title will miss its Fall 2016 release window, and a new launch window has been scheduled for Spring 2017. Gun Media and IllFonic will use the extra time to develop a single player campaign and add offline bots for practice purposes.
The game’s price has been adjusted to reflect this change, and players will now have to pay US$ 40 in order to access the game, instead of the original US$ 30 (physical copies won’t be affected by this price increase, as they already cost US$ 60)
The release schedule is roughly as follows:
- Fall 2016: Beta Release including 4 additional beta keys for friends when pre-ordered (KS Backers will get an additional 4 beta keys for their friends as well)
- Spring 2017: Multiplayer Release with Tommy Jarvis and Packanack Lodge as the third playable map
- Summer 2017: Single Player Release and Offline AI Bots
