Friday the 13th: The Game has been a huge success with fans of the movies and video game enthusiasts, alike. Structured as an online playing field of killers and their helpless victims, F13: The Game takes an approach similar to games like Overwatch, in that the entire experience is online and inherently involves participation from a group of players. While there is a single player mode on the way, much of the fun comes from getting grouped together with strangers and fighting for your lives as a motley crew of victims.
However, before the game was released, a Virtual Cabin was offered to Kickstarter backers, to show them what they might expect from the game upon its release. Now, the game’s creators are revamping the entire experience as a kind of Virtual Cabin 2.0, which will expand upon much of what those Kickstarter backers saw in the original cabin. The VC is part of the game’s single-player mode and will feature a lot more puzzles and hidden easter eggs for fans to dig through on their own time.
According to a statement from Gun Media, the game’s developer:
“We redid the entire layout of the VC, made it bigger, with more puzzles, easter eggs and props from both the films and the game. VC 2.0 still has an F13 museum aspect to it, but there’s something deeper, beneath the surface if you wish to dig around. We liken this experience to a certain crazy good/fun horror demo that got canceled. However we’re doing our own thing, wrapped in Friday the 13th, and we think it’s pretty cool. The whole experience is in 1st person and has some jump scares that you twisted people love so much.
If you purchased the original VC, you will still have access to that via steam. But VC 2.0 will be accessible by all three platforms (PC, XB1 and PS4) from the main menu of the game. It will be within the Singleplayer section of the menu.”
It’s definitely a good time to be a horror fan right now. IT was a massive success, earning itself the highest opening weekend for a horror film in history. Additionally, David Gordon Green is hard at work on his new Halloween movie, and this Friday the 13th game is one of the most popular online multiplayer games right now alongside Overwatch and PlayerUnknown’s BATTLEGROUNDS.
