Last April, on the eve of IllFonic and Gun Media’s hotly anticipated release of Friday the 13th: The Game, we brought you stats for all 7 versions of Jason Voorhees gamers could opt to play as. The most exciting new “skin” was the Tom Savini designed Hellfire Jason, a game exclusive that quickly became a fan favorite for imagining what the iconic slasher would look like after a stint in the underworld.
Today, Gun Media announced via YouTube that a new Jason “skin” will be available tomorrow, and it will especially appeal to fans of 1980s era retro gaming. Now introducing Retro Jason, designed after the baby-blue and purple color combo featured in the original Friday the 13th Game for Nintendo. Have a look at the videos below for everything you need to know about this latest Voorhees manifestation!
Just announced in the trailer below, our readers will be able to gain two new outfits for each counselor, free CP points to spend, a Double XP weekend from June 23rd through the 25th, and the chance to now play as Friday The 13th Nintendo Jason Voorhees!
Official Synopsis: 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!
