Friday the 13th: The Game is a third-person survival horror game where players can take on the role of counselors or as Jason Voorhees. Seven players face off against the iconic and brutal killer as they try to escape from Camp Crystal Lake. Each counselor comes equipped with their own unique skills to take down their tormentor. Whether counselors band together to face off against Jason or choose a stealthier exit, no two games are the same. As Jason, players can utilize stalking, ambushing, and other abilities to track down or terrify the victims.

Friday the 13th: The Game is available on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and on Steam.
