The genre-defining blockbuster horror franchise, is set to thrill and terrify a whole new generation of digital fans as the incomparable, unstoppable Jason Voorhees returns to videogames for his first solo outing in over 25 years, EGM has exclusively learned.

Currently in development, FRIDAY THE 13TH will reportedly be an asymmetrical, co-operative and competitive multiplayer predator/prey horror experience that pits a small group of resourceful survivors against a single player in control of the immortal, relentless slasher icon. This will be the first official FRIDAY THE 13TH licensed game to feature the hockey mask–wearing, machete-wielding psychopath since players last faced off against the infamous Jason on the NES back in 1989.

The new game, tentatively titled FRIDAY THE 13TH, is in development for multiple platforms for an October 2015 release. The game's lore will not only reference elements from the classic film franchise, but also incorporate content and themes from the upcoming Friday the 13th television series.

"With a new television series on the horizon and plans announced for the thirteenth installment of the film franchise, we felt the timing was right to finally explore Jason, Camp Crystal Lake, and the rest of the FRIDAY THE 13TH story in interactive form," explains Sean S. Cunningham, creator of the original film that is credited by many as the genesis of the slasher/horror genre. "We have some exciting new ideas for a game that supplies plenty of replay value, while delivering the kinds of thrills and scares that fans of the franchise have come to expect."

Cunningham hints that an experienced game studio has taken the reins of the title's development and will be announced in the coming weeks.

It sucked. The Commodore 64 version was way better.

I was actually just playing the NES version yesterday and I beat it for the first time ever! Knowing what to do now, it's actually not that hard.

I don't remember much about the C64 game. I know I played it a few times, but that was just so long ago. Will have to fire up the emulator and give it a look.

As for the NES version, I had kind of a love/hate relationship with it. I liked the gameplay, music, and atmosphere but I never had any luck beating it as a kid. Used to frustrate the shit out of me. Now that I know the strategy, it's even more enjoyable. Not a top 10 NES game for me, but definitely one to own.

Now, if my brother would just drop off his old NES he had buried in his spare/junk room, I can start playing the real deal again!

Yes it is a frustrating video game to play.

Looks pretty good, almost like an updated version of the NES game with the ability to play as Jason.

For a Pre-Alpha it looks very good. Love the 1980s vibe.
