Friday the 13th: The Game Going Physical After Brisk Sales

Friday the 13th: The Game has sold an impressive 1.8 million copies across the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC platforms, Illfonic has revealed. That success inspired publisher Gun Media to announce a physical release in North America.

Due to arrive this October on Friday the 13th, the game is already available for preorder on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with an MSRP of $39.99.

In Friday the 13th, one person becomes Jason Vorhees and the other players in the match try to kill him so they can survive their camp experience and grow up to become soccer moms and ad executives. Their life expectancy isn’t all that great, though, because Jason is every bit the fearsome killer you remember from the popular films.

The multiplayer survival game was popular almost the moment it launched, though there were a lot of twists and turns on the way to reaching that point. Friday the 13th: The Game actually began development as a project called Summer Camp, until Illfonic secured the license and launched a Kickstarter campaign to secure the funding necessary to complete its development.

If you’re not interested in a physical version of the title, or you just can’t wait to visit Camp Crystal Lake and show Jason who’s boss, you can currently download Friday the 13th: The Game on Steam, PlayStation Network, or Xbox Live, also for $39.99. Maybe you’ll even make it through the night.
