Friday the 13th to get “Hitman” inspired single player Challenge mode

When launched, the Friday the 13th game achieved a cult following, as the multiplayer only horror game featured some gruesome ways for Jason to kill his opponents. But, there wasn’t much to do if you were a single player apart from practice against AI controlled campers. That’s all set to change as developer Illfonic have announced plans to introduce a “Hitman” inspired single player mode to the game, called Challenges. Warning, the video below shows some of those gruesome kills and is definitely not one for the squeamish.

In a recent blog post (which can be found here), the developer stated that “The challenges could be as simple as “Kill everyone”, but then you might find a challenge that asks you to locate a specific counselor and kill them first. Or perhaps kill someone a specific way or with a specific weapon.”

They also directly referenced the comparison with Hitman, “That’s the approach we took with challenges. There’s a certain, very popular game, with a bald protagonist in a suit with a barcode on his neck. Yeah, that one. If you played that game, you kinda see the direction we’re going with Challenges. Except you’re not an elite special agent…you’re Jason.”

Although I must admit that Friday the 13th has passed me by, this new mode looks perfect for me, and now is probably the time I will make that purchase.

 

Friday The 13th: The Game gets offline bots

Friday the 13th: The Game is getting offline bots added, which will add a single player experience to the multiplayer only game. The new update, out this week on PS4, Xbox One and PC, will also include an increase to the level cap, and limited time Holiday Events.

The offline mode will allow you to select how difficult the bots you play against, Easy, Normal, and Hard. The higher the difficulty you choose, the longer counselors will remember you being in the area, the more likely they are to fight you, the quicker they are to react to your presence, the quicker they are to exit hiding spaces when you leave, and the more likely they are to use Medical Sprays smartly. They’ll fix cars, boats, hide in closets, under beds, in sleeping bags, barricade doors, and more to keep you from making them into another victim. You’ll be able to select from 1 to 7 counselors in your offline game to ensure that you are playing against exactly how many counselors you want to stalk.

The increase in max player level will go from 101 to 150. This increase won’t just be a number that keeps getting higher as you play more and earn XP. The devs have promised that there will be some cool things that you will unlock along the way like new outfits for counselors and new grab kills for Jason.

The Holiday Events will start on December 18th and from then until the 23rd, your chances of rolling a Rare and Epic perk will be increased. From 23rd to 27th your chances of finding BOTH Pamela and Jarvis tapes will be increased. Finally, from December 23rd and running through to January 2nd, you will be earning DOUBLE CP. Please note that CP earned from leveling up is NOT doubled, but everything else is.
