The crowdfunded survival horror game Friday the 13th: The Game was released about a month ago, but it still hasn’t seen quite as much success as competitors like Dead by Daylight has. A lot of that has to do with the glitches that plagued the game when it first came out, especially those that affected server performance and kept people from playing it. While the developers at IllFonic continue to take steps to fix these issues, they haven’t been fully taken care of, and for that, they apologize… in the form of free content!
According to an article from PC Gamer, the DLC came out June 20th for all players who own the game. The update includes a retro Jason skin and chiptune music composed by Swedish electronic musician Mitch Murder. The rest of the content includes new outfits for each counselor, 13,000 free customization points, and a double XP event scheduled for this weekend, June 23-25. Publisher Gun Media said they wanted to “make up for [the issues] and thank you for your patience,” and also here’s some “cool free s**t.” So that was pretty rad of them.
Along with the new update, a patch was released for the game that improves and fixes a lot of the previous issues. Some of these include fixing several exploit locations on all of the maps, removing lock bugs found in multiple interactions and preventing Jason from flying off the map after getting hit. Because apparently, that’s something that happened multiple times. There were several more improvements made to the Steam version of the game, such as fixing the main menu voice from stuttering and giving the game a dedicated server tag space.
