Earlier in the week we caught wind that Friday The 13th: The Game was getting some new single-player challenges mixed in and the hype for the future of the game spiked. Gun Media and IllFonic have been doing a great job in adding and changing things up to the game to keep us all engaged and making it more of the game we all want. It is something that has made Friday The 13th: The Game stay alive and keep a lot of us coming back for more instead of getting burnt out on it. That all said, now it looks like we are getting some new options for Jason in the game as the ability to change the core weapon Jason uses is getting added in with the next big update.
Fans of Friday The 13th: The Game will know that when you spawn in as Jason you are stuck with the iconic weapon used for the film that your selected Jason is from. It makes perfect sense to have it that way to make that Jason feel unique besides having the stats fit as well. But it did feel weird that he could not change things up as he does in the films and for the true mix up we needed to get some of the special kills in the game. Not the easiest of tasks sometimes, but it did kind of make Jason feel limited. Now we are going to be able to play Friday The 13th a bit more like Jason is in the films. After the update, you will be able to swap out the weapon for whichever one you wish and go to town killing all of those counselors.
There is no date on when this update for Friday The 13th: The Game is coming outside of "Soon," but it is coming. Obviously, it will be another one of those free updates for the game so you just need to have the game and keep it up to date to get it. While we wait though we have a new trailer for this feature to look at and see just how swapping up the weapon in the game can look and feel. It may seem minor, but it does look to give a new feel to it all. Have a look for yourself.
Friday The 13th: The Game — Jason Weapon Swapping
Hello, slashers! Today we wanted to show you something that will be important to our fans who prefer to play as Jason. In the next update, and when you reach a sufficient progression level, you will be able to switch Jason’s weapon. Jason Part VII with a machete? Sure. Roy with a pig splitter? Go for it.
Everyone on the Friday The 13th: The Game team is excited to see the community start experimenting with different Jason & Weapon combinations!
With Jason being able to switch up his arsenal, we’re happy to let players know that custom key-binding is on the way for our PC players. We know that this is something that you have wanted for a while now, and our left-handed players have certainly been asking us about, and we’re happy to implement this highly requested feature.
What do you think about Friday The 13th: The Game adding in this new feature? Does it make sense to give Jason these options or will it take away from the limitations of each of the versions of the character has had already and make things a little less balanced? What is your dream combination of weapon to Jason in the game or are you still waiting for something else? Let everyone out there know what is on your mind down in the comments and then discuss. As Friday The 13th: The Game gets further updates, we will have them all here for you. Just be sure to keep coming back to the site so you can keep up to date.
