When the new Friday the 13th game was announced, its developers said they didn’t plan to hold back on the blood and gore. That definitely appears to be the case, as a new trailer for the game released at PAX West is incredibly brutal and unsettling.
Maybe don’t watch if you’re squeamish; some of the death sequences are horrific, like when Jason pushes someone’s eyeballs into their face and lodges a pick-axe into an unfortunate soul’s neck. If you’re up for it, the video is above.
Friday the 13th: The Game began its life as a game called Slasher Vol 1: Summer Camp before the Friday the 13th franchise’s rights-holders, including Sean Cunningham, contacted developer Gun Media. The rights were given to Gun Media for free, and the game eventually morphed into a full-blown Friday the 13th title.
It’s a multiplayer game where one person plays as Jason, while the others take on the role of campers. Some of the archetypes for characters include “the girl next door” and “the jock,” among others.
Friday the 13th: The Game is tentatively scheduled to launch in October 2016 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. For more on the game, which was successfully funded on Kickstarter, read GameSpot’s previous coverage.
