Camp Crystal Lake is going to get spattered in new blood next fall when the folks at Gun Media release Friday the 13th: The Game on PC, Xbox One, and PS4. While fans still have a while to wait before they can play Jason Voorhees and his prey, a new prototype video explains how each match will begin.

"Friday the 13th: The Game is a third-person, asymmetrical multiplayer title where one player controls Jason Voorhees while the remaining seven control camp counselors trying to survive the night.That's right...1v7 multiplayer set in the semi-open world of Camp Crystal Lake! It's a classic horror fan's dream, no shaky cam, no found footage. We want you to know we're revitalizing the golden era of slashers, and putting you at the controls of each horrific, blood-splattered moment.

Friday the 13th is the definition of horror to the millions of fans around the world. A masked killer going after the young and vulnerable; it grabs our attention, it frightens us, and yet we all come back for more. Friday the 13th: The Game will give you the feeling of horror and dread that you expect from Jason Voorhees. This will be the ultimate asymmetrical horror experience unlike anything you’ve seen - a title we’re proud to introduce that is worthy of the name ‘Friday the 13th’.

Friday the 13th: The Game is being developed for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, for release in Fall, 2016.
