FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE GAME Gets Serious Update Packed With New Character And Gifts
A new update at the weekend comes out for Friday the 13th: The Game and in the forums mentioning offline bots, level cap increase, and some holiday specials, but what it didn’t mention is that there will also be a brand new counselor that we can play as! When you update your game on PS4 or Steam today, and it will coming soon on Xbox One, you will be meeting Shelly.
New characters are always a good thing in a game, Offline bots are pretty much the closest thing we are going to get from the single-player mode that we were promised a while back. Now you can play against NPC’s, instead of trolling players, and practice your stalking, murderous ways against counselors of your difficulty choice. You can also have any number of counselors in the offline mode.
The new level cap is going to take the number from 101 all the way to 150, with rewards coming in this update and more guaranteed for future updates. The secondary gift here is some new clothing colors for a few counselors, but the big change I can’t wait for is two new grab kills that can be bought with CP, not cash!
Now the details of the holiday gifts: From December 18th to the 23rd, your chances of rolling a Rare and Epic perk will be increased. Then, from the 23rd until the 27th, your chances of finding both Pamela and Jarvis tapes will be increased. Also starting on the 23rd, but lasting until January 2nd, you will earn double CP. Excluding when you level up, this is going to help you reach new levels and might even help some of you unlock the level 44 Jason that many still have yet to reach.
