Beta Extending, Server Issues Have Delayed Launch


Friends & Family Beta Update

Hello Backers...

We’re sorting through some backend server stuff to make sure you guys have the best experience possible. We’re very sorry for the Friends & Family Beta delay. The crew at Illfonic & Gun have been, and are working around the clock to fix the issue. 

We're very sorry & have extended the beta for everyone...
We're very sorry & have extended the beta for everyone...

We thought it was only fair that we extend the beta an extra day to make sure each of you have enough time stalking/dying at Crystal Lake.

If you haven't seen the gameplay video of a full match we released Friday with IGN, please watch it now.

Thank you for your understanding. You'll be running from Jason and mangling counselors very soon! Stay tuned to our Twitter and Facebook feeds for more info as it develops.

      I got the email for Beta access, but I had/have no idea what to do with them, so I didn't use them.
      This was for PC only wasn't it? No Console Beta? Because all I have is a crappy laptop and a tablet, so I figured I couldn't really make use of a PC beta. Too bad, although I'm only interested in the Single Player campaign. Game looks great, but I absolutely abhor Online Multiplayer games.

      @Jeremiah Kidd same here i think its why i didnt get it a si changed email address month or so ago

    3. Jeremiah Kidd on December 22, 2016

      I can't access my email account I used for the Backerkit since I switched Internet providers, is there any way it could be sent to the email address I am using for Kickstarter?

    4. Shane Rushent on December 22, 2016

      didnt receive email either for the beta

    5. Nathaniel Homen on December 21, 2016

      Gary's comment helped me retrieve my beta codes. Thanks!!

    6. Pii Smith on December 21, 2016

      So I changed my E-Mail after backing this project. I guess that is the reason I got no mail. How do I change the E-Mail address, where you sent me the key? How do I resend it?
      Someone help me on here!

    7. Gary Mahon on December 21, 2016

      Those who haven't got an email (junked or otherwise), can go to and should be able to view their keys there :)

    8. Sam Savage Cash on December 21, 2016

      You couldn't stream for the F&F part of the Beta, which has now finished, so people are allowed to stream.

      The F&F part was the first 2 days, was limited to people who specifically backed a tier that stated it had Beta access. Everyone else is getting access to the rest of the Beta, though it seems like lots of codes are either going missing or not being sent.

    9. Stefano Cinghialotto on December 21, 2016

      I have not received the BETA key yet and since I pledget to be part of the BETA I would like to receive before the BETA session ends.

      Some confusion here. I pledged at the Ultra BFF 2-pack tier, does that mean I get access to the whole Beta? Or is there a difference between the friends and family Beta vs the Pre-order Closed Beta?

      Also, in the Terms & Conditions, it says that you may not stream, share, video etc... But at the bottom it says 'If you are a streamer you may stream etc'... What gives?

    11. drakkor on December 21, 2016

      Can't play the beta game :( Server seems down for me and wont connect, and also keyboard mapping isn't working, so can't reconfigure my keys to play correctly

      Are keys still being sent out? I've not received one yet. (kickstarter backer)

    13. Pii Smith on December 20, 2016

      It could have been that you have an old e-mail of me. I am a backer, but I did not receive the key. How do I get it?

    14. Tim Suetens on December 20, 2016

      I want to leave feedback to the team, is there a place where we can do this? A forum? Some way other than here?

    15. Amy Kim on December 20, 2016

      I'm excited to try the beta tonight, but disappointed that I missed the friends and family beta as backerkit never informed me about my keys until today.

    16. Christopher Tubb on December 20, 2016

      Been playing the BETA with my friends today and we all love it! Jason has won every time but that is hardly surprising with just a couple of councillors new to the game.

      I became a backer during the 1st days that this was posted on Kickstarter and here it is, Tuesday morning and I FINALLY get beta keys...

      Sad thing is, this is just the PC beta. This game will NOT be released until Friday October 13th, 2017 because it will take that long for this fiasco to go through Microsoft & Sony to get certified. The EASIEST certification process is on the PC, and these people ( I want to use a harsh word here, but I am not ) can't even get the server up and running and beta keys out in a timely fashion...

    18. Cato Færøy AoUA BoSB on December 20, 2016

      Wow!!! This is awesome, and scary as h***

    19. Craig Jaundrell on December 20, 2016

      I just got my friends and family beta keys now.
      It's the 20th in Australia, did I miss it?

      I ordered 3 copies of the game and have yet to get any beta codes

    21. Missing avatar

      Michael on December 19, 2016

      So have codes actually been sent? I am asking because looking at times of other comments codes where sent 12-ish hours ago but I have not received a code. IF codes have not been sent yet that would be something to clarify to avoid confusion and annoyed backers. IF the codes have been sent that needs to be said and completely done as well for the same reason.

      Haven't received beta keys and I've been a backer since they first started on Kickstarter, do I not receive one if I did the Early Bird 4 Pack?

    23. Jay Bond on December 19, 2016

      My email had changed and I did not receive my beta key.

    24. Mark Gray on December 19, 2016

      Where can we provide feedback on the beta?

      Wow, I know I am probably late for the "what the fuck is going on" session, but really?? The "Friends & Family" beta was for the early supporters of the game. Damn, if I remember correctly, I remember being a supporter of the game during the initial week that the game was placed on Kickstarter. And I don't get an email, text, update, or anything until 12/18 @ 7pm EST?? I am glad I took the weekend off from work so that I could play this... Now that I am back to work, there's the email for the beta codes!! Wonderful timing Randy!! Seriously!!

    27. BinkSayres on December 19, 2016

      Update. @ 0420, checked again on a lark. There is now a code in place. If you received an email from Randy Greenback - Gun Media, there should be a code there now. Happy Downloading and I'll see you in game.

    28. Ethan on December 19, 2016

      Didn't expect to get a friend/family key. Much thanks!

    29. BinkSayres on December 19, 2016

      Received the email @ 0318 EST saying here is your key...gave a link to a location to pick up the key...went to location and saw the heading where there should be a key...but no key. Something happen?

      Crap, nevermind, I only got the one beta, not the 4, my mistake I apologize..guess I need to head to a friends to play heh

      Damon Didcott on December 19, 2016

      @Trinidad and @Marcus - you get the Beta codes anyway.

      I'm in the same boat (got an Xbox One) but did get the codes.

    32. Will Nyteshade
      on December 19, 2016

      Just got my key, so do I send this same key to my other friends? There's only one when I was supposed to get 4

    33. Daniel WIlliams on December 19, 2016

      still waiting for beta keys for PC

      Trinidad Sandoval on December 19, 2016

      If I preordered for xbox, do I not get Beta codes even though I own a PC?

    35. Charles Nickerson on December 18, 2016

      I can just imagine the issues that will come up in the untested console versions of this game.

    36. David Phillips on December 18, 2016

      Cant wait to finialy try this game out! Been looking forward to this

    37. Marcus Rideout on December 18, 2016

      Thanks for the update guys!
      PS: The early footage from IGN looks SICK!!! Can't WAIT to play :D
      If we backed the project under "FIRST TO DIE PACK" and chose the PS4 version, are we still able to play the PC beta this week?

      I'm disappointed the Beta is only 4 days long, especially since the price difference was 15 bucks

      Looks amazing, love all the love being put into this game! *HIGH FIVE*!

    40. Lee F Huftalen on December 18, 2016

      I still haven't received my beta key. When are you going to send them out?

    41. Jaedison on December 18, 2016

      Christmas Eve? Make sure you're not... I don't know, no one's going to miss the day with their family. We only get the day once a year despite how you celebrate it, or other seasons within it as well that there are.

      My gosh, I know you have to get the game out and stuff, but I'm sure people will be with their families for the most part, aside basement dwellers like me lol. Think of yourselves, too. Don't forget you're people as well. Makes me feel damn guilty to be honest. Again please think of yourselves too.

      I won't say that I'm not dissapointed, the 19th and 20th would have been the only days I could have participated.

      Take your time, I am so happy with what I have seen thus far that waiting a little longer to scream is so worth it. Thank you for the update!!

      Thanks for your hard work folks, all part of beta :)

      Thanks for the extension.

      Keys have not been sent out, but we're working hard to get the servers and build ready for everyone to enjoy. Soon...
