Project Updates!

Ok, we've hit a huge milestone and as promised, we're starting the Friday the 13th: The Game Beta very soon. 

How soon you ask? Well keep reading...

Beta Dates and Rules

OK. The boring, but important stuff first.

For the Friends & Family Beta, those participating agree not to stream footage, or share any sort of media, screenshots, news or information about that game. 

Cool? Alright. Now...

The Friends & Family Beta will start on 12/18/16 and run through 12/19/16. Keep in mind; this is a work in progress. This is a beta, as raw as they come. We’re constantly tweaking kills, working on character models, making sure mechanics are working as intended...and sometimes they don’t. You will see some work in early stages, you will see bugs and issues may in fact pop up that affect your experience. This is what a real Beta is all about and it is to be expected. 

We want you to kick the tires, break stuff, find bugs and help us stress test our servers. We also want to hear from you directly. Our goal is to take your feedback from this beta and ensure that we’re on the right path for the best overall Friday the 13th experience in gaming. You'll be able to dive into our forums, tweet at us, hit us up on facebook, or post in the Steam community for the game. If you have something to say, we want to hear it.

The Friends & Family beta is for our earliest supporters, our dearest fans, our friends and our families. This is the first look at all of the work that Gun, IllFonic and so many others have spent over a year making a reality. The immense amount of love and support from everyone has been immeasurably gratifying, and has helped our team work through these late nights over the past year and a half.

We want the Friends & Family beta to be intimate; a chance to have the earliest supporters interact with one another, play with the team and get the first shot at a game that couldn’t have been made without you. We’re giving you access to a portion of game development that few teams would ever allow to be shown; so we hope you enjoy access and we look forward to playing with you for the duration of this friends and family beta!

For the Pre-Order Closed Beta, all those that have pre-ordered the game on KS or BackerKit will then get a code for themselves and 4 more to share with others. We'll be taking Pre-Orders for the game at BackerKit throughout the Beta, and anyone Pre-Ordering the game will get 5 Beta codes as well. By redeeming the code/s you'll be locked in on the purchase and cannot cancel your order, so keep that in mind.

Pre-Order Here - https://friday-the-13th-the-game.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders 

We'll allow streaming of the Pre-Order Closed Beta, so you'll get to watch the dev team play on our Twitch channel, and many of your favorite streamers as well.

This... All of this... Is because of you backers!
This... All of this... Is because of you backers!

 Please spread the word and let everyone know that JASON LIVES! 

Reminder: BackerKit Pre-orders Will Be Charged On Dec. 17th, & Every Day After Until The Beta Ends

We'll be charging pre-orders and running cards on Dec. 17th. If you've pre-ordered anything from BackerKit recently (since the the end of Nov. 25th) you'll be getting charged and having your order locked in. If you were charged during Kickstarter, or any time before the last Friday of Nov. then you will NOT be charged again. I repeat, if you were already charged, you will not be charged again. This reminder is only for those that have pre-ordered after Nov. 25th.

** IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT (PLEASE READ) **

Get your orders in for any add-ons you may be looking to pick up, like the Official Physical Art Book or the CD Soundtrack. You can order them now, or wait till the Beta ends. As always, you can still update addresses yourselves as well at the BackerKit site, and will be able to do so up until we begin to ship the games and other merchandise out in 2017.

Tommy Jarvis Returns to Camp Crystal Lake (Thom Matthews Joins The Team)

You heard it right! Tommy Jarvis returns to take on his arch-nemesis Jason Voorhees in Friday the 13th: The Game! Tommy is played by Thom Matthews who originally played the role in Part VI. Watch the video and see why everyone is getting excited!

If that doesn't get you hyped up, I don't know what will... 

New Counselor (Eric J.R. LaChappa/Class Clown)

We have our next counselor concept for you to check out... Eric J.R. LaChappa!

Eric has become a fan-favorite since we first revealed him and we know he'll be a favorite of players when the game is released. 

A little nerdy, but can ham it up for a laugh...

Playing on the Alien Skull Throne...
Playing on the Alien Skull Throne...

Last week Randy got his ass handed to him in Bloodborne. This Friday he'll be playing Kholat on PS4. The following week on the 23rd we'll be doing something special and streaming Friday the 13th: The Game. Perhaps we'll play with some Twitch chat friends and definitely will include some unsuspecting strangers online.

Here is the link to the stream for safe keeping - http://www.twitch.tv/fridaythe13thgame

Take a moment to follow us on Twitch now, that way you can get a notification whenever we go live. You really really should.

Wrap-Up! 

That was an incredible update! All of us working on this game are excited to finally share it with you. Please remember... We want your feedback, we will continue to work on the game post-beta and will be taking account of bugs, balancing tweaks and suggestions.

Keep up with more regular updates by following us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Twitch, and of course joining the Friday the 13th: The Game forums!

Ready to stalk some counselors? We'll be out on the campgrounds with you soon, so watch your back!!

      Is there a way for me to still pre-order on my backerkit the councilor and Jason DLC? I wanted to add them to my order before the cut off but never got around to it.

    7. Jordan Peterson on December 17, 2016

      I also would like to know about the console betas. I pre-ordered the early bird special for Xbox One. How/when will we be getting beta codes for that?

      Very excited to see this happen. As a "Digital Camper" I am wondering how I can expect to receive a game key. I have been watching to try and make sure I don't miss out

      I'm very excited to see the game. With all the game play being put under wraps for the sake of surprise, I'm a little nervous that the game might not be what I expect at all. But from what little I have seen through Gun Media's YouTube channel and Twitter feed, I'm impressed so far in terms of looks.

      For the actual game we'll just have to see, but I'm not too worried. I'll just be sure to make notes of any bugs I find and possible suggestions.

    11. Rob Marotti on December 15, 2016

      I'd also like to know about a console beta. I haven't gamed on a PC in 10 years

      A) Knowing what the minimum specs to run the beta would be nice to know... my Dell laptop is an I5 and the cabin is all janky and not worth a damn in my opinion...

      B) I am leery as hell cuz I see all these wonderful images that say BETA, yet in my opinion, they appear to be rendered. I say this because Randy's wording in the email says "...keep in mind; this is a work in progress. This is a beta, as raw as they come. We’re constantly tweaking kills, working on character models, making sure mechanics are working as intended...and sometimes they don’t. You will see some work in early stages, you will see bugs and issues may in fact pop up that affect your experience. This is what a real Beta is all about and it is to be expected."

      Finding what can be broken is what a beta test is for, to stress the servers, find the programming errors, bugs, etc. ALL games have them, even after their release date. That is what a patch is for. But Randy saying "as raw as it comes" and "see some work in early stages"... those are phrases that I don't want to hear when the game has been in production for this long and we are this close to a release date.

      If I remember correctly, Summer Camp was damn complete when Gun Media got the licensing for F13. Add a million bucks and some new skins later seems that F13 was build completely from the ground up.

      Poor choice of words Randy...

    13. Josh Dusel on December 15, 2016

      I think i am in the same boat as most people when i say, i don't have the minimum specs to run this game. Kind of a bummer.

    14. Mark Hebert on December 15, 2016

      Will there be a console beta? I don't have a pc that can run games.

    15. Alex Findlay on December 15, 2016

      Also is there a minimum requirements/specs list somewhere so I don't waste a code by giving it to someone who can't run the game?

    16. Teaghan Arabsky on December 15, 2016

      I'm confused. I did early-bird friend till the end pack. Do I get the pre-order? I have no idea what I'm receiving or what this backer-kit stuff is. All I remember is filling out that I'm on Steam and my email address I think.
