Friday the 13th Slasher Edition Includes Jason Mask Replica | Gaming
Friday the 13th: The Game had a rough start, with glitches galore and no shortage of server issues. However, the developers worked hard to alleviate many of its major problems, and the game managed to develop a dedicated fan base. Unfortunately, its bright future was cut short due to ongoing legal problems involving the rights to the Friday the 13th IP, and while this means that no new content will be produced, at least fans have the Ultimate Slasher Collector’s Edition to look forward to.
Friday the 13th: The Game‘s Ultimate Slasher Collector’s Edition will release on September 4 for PS4 and Xbox One. This version of the game will come with all previously released DLC, meaning fans can have their pick from post-launch counselors, Jason skins, and more.
The free DLC is nice, but the main reason why fans would want to pick up the Ultimate Slasher Collector’s Edition is to get their hands on some exclusive physical items. This includes a limited edition video game poster, along with a replica of Jason’s hockey mask as it appears in the Friday the 13th: Part 3 film.
Those thinking about picking up Friday the 13th: The Game‘s Ultimate Slasher Collector’s Edition may be wondering how much it will cost. According to its Amazon listing, it will retail for $69.99, so about $10 more than a full-priced new release. Fans who have already invested money and time in the original release will have to decide if the mask and poster are worth the asking price, though this could be a solid way for newcomers to see what all the fuss is about.
Even if this new version of the game manages to bring in a ton of new players, though, it still won’t result in any new content being developed. The developers have said that all work on future DLC has permanently ended, as it’s not practical for them to continue developing it when there is no guarantee it could ever actually release. However, they are still supporting the game through updates that will address lingering bugs and other issues.
Friday the 13th: The Game is out now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
