Friday The 13th gets a new Jaaasoon
Friday The 13th: The Game has had its fair share of tweaks and bugs, but developer IllFonic’s latest update should go some way to smoothing things out by giving Jason a much needed – if modest – buff. A new map and a new Jason have also been added.
This week’s patch notes cover the new content, that includes Jason Part 5 from the fifth movie, and the Pinehurst map. Jason Part 5 doesn’t have any level requirements, and both he and the new map will be available in multiplayer and offline with bots.
Jason Part 5 will also have access to three grab kills: Hedge Trimmer, Last Breath, and You’re So Vein. A new grab kill called Rugby Player has been added to the mix too, and you can unlock it at level 108 for 2500 CP.
Jason himself has been given a little buff, which should spice up gameplay somewhat when coupled with the reduced amount of Pocket Knives and Medical Sprays that will spawn per match.
Jason will now start each match with two additional throwing knives, and has had his movement speed and and grab range “slightly increased”.
The new and improved Jason should guarantee you sleepless nights in the days to come.
