Illfonic’s video game adaptation of the massive horror franchise, Friday the 13th: The Game, is getting a massive holiday update.
The new update is due around next Monday, on 18th of December. However, that’s only an estimate for PS4 and PC users to hold on to. Xbox One users will have to wait a little bit longer. The holiday update brings a much desired feature, offline bots. Players can now create lobbies with offline bots to practice before diving into online play. You can choose from three difficulty levels, and even decide how many counselors there are in your game session. Not only that, the update also increases the maximum level cap and brings with it a holiday-themed event, starting from December 18th and ending on January 2nd. The event has three sub-events in it, including increased chance of rolling a Rare or Epic perk and even double CP.
Finally, you will be able to select how difficult the bots you play against will be from the 3 difficulty levels included in the update – 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. Feel like honing your single prey hunting skills? 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.
Max Level Increase:
New for Counselors: More clothing coloring options for Mitch, Fox… and a couple more counselors that we aren’t ready to speak about, yet… allowing you to stand out from the other prey in the match.
New for Jason: get ready to murder pesky counselors in new ways. In the upcoming patch you will be able to unlock two brand-spankin’ new grab kills for Jason, absolutely for free. Well, except for the cost of CP. We’ll also have bloody variations of multiple Jasons allowing you to walk around splattered with blood like the slasher you are.
That’s not all, though. More level rewards will be added in the coming months, and we’ll have more information about them in the coming months.
Starting on December 18th and lasting through to the 23rd, your chances of rolling a Rare and Epic perk will be increased. My advice, hoard that CP you collect over the weekend and spend it next week instead.
Starting on December 23rd and running through to the 27th, your chances of finding BOTH Pamela and Jarvis tapes will be increased. If you’re rummaging through drawers and find one, maybe go ahead and be a Chad and keep it for yourself.
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.
