Gamers' enthusiasm for Friday the 13th: The Game was high enough to overload some of the servers upon the game's initial launch, but Gun Media and IllFonic are rewarding the patience of their fans with a free wave of content updates, including the NES version of Jason Voorhees!

"You guys broke our expectations and our severs, and we are very thankful for your support and love. Here's some free stuff to apologize for our rocky launch, and so that you might give us a slight reprieve as we continue to improve and fix!

Please enjoy this free Retro Jason and music courtesy of Mitch Murder as well as new clothing for counselors, 13,000 Customization Points for everyone and of course a Double XP Weekend starting June 23rd-June 25th!

To thank our fans for their patience, we're offering the first content update for free which includes the following:

  • 'Retro' Jason complete with chip tune music inspired by classic '80s games as written and performed by Mitch Murder
  • New clothing for all counselors
  • A Double XP weekend lasting June 23rd to June 25th
  • 13,000 Customization Points to every account
