Gun Media and Illfonic announced that the official release date for Friday The 13th: The Game is set for May 26th next month for Steam, PS4 and Xbox One.

The news came via a tweet sent out by the official Twitter account for the game, where they announced the news and followed it up with a new release date trailer.

Friday The 13th: The Game was originally Kickstarted back in 2015, and the team at Illfonic have been working on the title ever since. Surprisingly, they managed to get the game finished within the span of just two years.

You can check out the new trailer below.

The trailer starts with a an old retro intro and then switches over to a 60fps, FHD look at the Crystal Lake killer stalking and hunting some camp counselors at a cabin.

The trailer doesn’t focus on the cinematics for long. It ends up showing actual gameplay where Jason stalks his prey, busts down lots of doors, destroys cars, impales teenagers, and even switches costumes in order to wear something fitting for the occasion.

The trailer is surprisingly well done, and unlike a lot of AAA titles they show you exactly what the game is about. They don’t say if the single-player portion will be available, but previous reports indicating that the single-player campaign would be added in at a later date.

This game is likely going to kill off a lot of the player base for Dead by Daylight and White Noise 2, so definitely get in your play time while the servers are still full in those games.

    Had my eye on this game ever since it was first announced, but I can’t help but feel it that both the advertising and testing was mismanaged.

    That first beta test seemed like it came too early, and everyone used the same 2 characters and utilized the same 2 strats. As it stood at that time, that Dead by Daylight game was superior in most ways.

    Hopefully they’ve improved on the gameplay enough to rectify the issues completely. The game really does have loads of potential.

    Looks like an early Xbox 360 game of a bargain bin variety.

    • Hopefully that’s how it’ll be priced.
