Illfonic’s recently released Friday the 13th themed third-person survival game just received a massive update which includes some nifty fixes and the long-awaited Spring Break 1984 DLC. The devs have also added a bunch of fancy emotes and updated the game’s clothing selection UI.
The outfit selection screen was not perfect, to say the least, but luckily the devs decided to add some handy functions and make it more user-friendly. Within this clothing selection screen, a swatch menu was added to customize outfit colors, which will now automatically save your picks.
New emotes were added in order to improve Friday the 13th: The Game’s in-game communication experience, or possibly to add a bit of room for trolling. An Emote Comm Wheel was implemented with 8 new Emotes that can be obtained free of charge. You can place emotes onto the slots that are available in the circular menu. The Emote Comm Wheel is opened by pressing the V button. You can then pick the emote by pressing A, or by clicking on it.
The Spring Break 1984 DLC is more of a cosmetic addition to Friday the 13th: The Game, as it brings new swimsuit costumes for all of the Counselors. The pack is now available in the store for roughly $2, which is a reasonable price to get Jason’s attention by wearing a bikini from the 80s.
The latest patch also strives to fix some minor (and major) bugs, such as Jason’s Sense ability failing to track Counselors. Jason will no longer be able to activate skills while throwing a knife and he will not drown us in shallow water anymore. Male Counselor voiceovers have also been corrected and you can now nudge each other “slightly”.
In case you want to take closer a look at the patch notes, head over to the official Steam post. Friday the 13th: The Game turned out to be quite an amazing survival horror title that rose from a successful Kickstarter campaign. Illfonic’s creation received mostly positive reviews on Steam, although many have complained about irritating bugs and balance issues.
