We still don’t have a release date for Friday the 13th: The Game from IllFonic and Gun Media, currently languishing in beta-testing, but new details are still emerging that have gamers and Horror Freaks excited. In the game’s online forum this weekend, developers revealed a series of “Jason Traps” that will be included. No, these aren’t traps Counselor’s use to catch Jason, these are traps Jason uses to catch your ass!
Q: Are Jason’s traps the same asset as the counselors trap?
A: No. Jason spent a long time in the woods, alone. Honing his skills as a hunter and killer. This is a trap that he has created, I’m told, using found items in the woods. Old pieces of wood, rusty nails and spikes and perhaps old bed springs from an old mattress to slam the trap shut.
Q: How do Jason traps work?
A: Jason has traps in his inventory (hud icon). Once selected (button press) Jason kneels and places trap on ground, and then covers the trap with leaves.
Q: How many traps does Jason have?
A: Each Jason will have different amounts of traps. For example, J2 might have 5, whereas J8 only 3.
Q: Can Jason set traps anywhere on the map?
A: Jason can only set traps within exterior areas only. He can not set them inside a cabin/building/underwater/docks. Only on ground textures.
Q: Can Jason set traps near doors, windows and the car?
A: Yes. And it’s awesome. You might think, at first blush, that this is too OP and could be used to troll. But Jason only has a limited amount of these.
Sounds killer (yes, pun intended)! We’ll bring you additional Friday the 13th: The Game news as additional details emerge. In the meantime, check out some demo trailers below for a taste of the terror that awaits us. And don’t forget to let us know what you think about the new “Jason Traps” in the Comments section!
