We’re a few weeks out from launch and our team wants to give an update to everyone about what we’re doing. The immediate news is that it’s time for some free content to all of you, our fans and supporters that have been with us through what was definitely not the smoothest of launches. We had a lot of good and we had some bad occur; but you guys have shown us some immense support and we’re thankful to all of you.
That being said; we are happy to announce that we’ll be doing our first content update for our fans as thanks for their patience while we’ve been improving matchmaking and stamping out exploits. We were completely blown away by the people that have been playing. We believed around 35K concurrent players would happen at launch, however we more than doubled that number and it completely shut down our game on all platforms for some time with Quick Play. That being said, you guys have been a great community from Day One of our Kickstarter and through our launch. We’ve been listening to a lot of feedback and using your emails, comments and posts to fix exploits for this patch. The understanding for these issues has been immense and we thank you all!
So, the big news: we’re happy to announce that every player is getting quite a few goodies as thanks for your support and patience. First off, everyone is getting an additional 13,000 Customization Points in their account to buy some perks and Jason kills due to the issues we’ve seen. On top of that, this weekend from June 23rd to June 25th will be a double XP weekend for all players! We’ve fixed exploit issues where users were getting into areas they shouldn’t be getting!
We’ve got one other big announcement though. We’re happy to announce that everyone is getting a new Jason for free! Retro Jason is being added to the game for all users — a nod to one of the more unique versions of Jason seen in the franchise. We’ve even included all-new music for when he makes an appearance around Camp Crystal Lake, courtesy of Mitch Murder! This Jason is available for everyone, and comes with his own unique kill as well.
Our team is working day-in and day-out to improve the experience and bring you more content, and we thank you all for your help and support as we continue to move forward with Friday the 13th: The Game! We hope this first update is enjoyable for everyone when it goes live tomorrow, June 20.
