It's been a great couple of months for fans of asymmetric multiplayer survival horror games based on classic eighties slasher films.

Quite. When I first saw Friday 13th I thought 'Haven't we just had that?'

To be fair, I've heard really good things about Laser League, particularly in terms of same-room multiplayer.

Laser League is a roll7 jam (OlliOlli, Not A Hero) so there might be something there. I think I got in on a PC beta a while ago but I didn't spend much time with it.

 

Maybe I'll just spend this month catching up on September's free games. ;)

At least the last one will still receive patches. This one is never going to see an update again because of licensing issues.

To elaborate a bit on my last post.

 

https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2018-06-11-lawsuit-will-block-friday-13th-getting-any-new-content-ever-it-sounds-like

 

Quote

There won't be - can't be - any new content made for Friday the 13th: The Game because of the messy Hollywood battle over ownership of the franchise.

 Last summer Victor Miller, scriptwriter of the the original Friday the 13th film, decided the rights were his and set out to reclaim them, triggering a ongoing legal battle with those who believed otherwise.

 The outcome still isn't decided but something has happened to convince Gun Media, publisher of Friday the 13th: The Game, developing new content for the game is "unfeasible now or in the future".

 Gun Media's statement read:

 "As many in our community may be aware, a legal claim has been made which could affect all future Friday the 13th intellectual property. Although in the past the game has not been subject to any such claim, new content and material going forward will be affected. An initial decision in this case was expected in October 2017, but no decision has yet been issued. The court review of the legal rights is in process, but final resolution may take some time. Until the claim rights can be dismissed or resolved, no new content can be released.

 "When we originally learned that the game fell within the crosshairs of this legal dispute, we tried to balance the creation of new content requested by our fans against the maintenance and bug fixing that our community expects and deserves. We attempted to do both within the limits of the legal case.

 "We've now been forced to accept that the lawsuit makes future content for the game, including alternate play modes, new playable Jasons and Counselors, and new maps, unfeasible now or in the future. Although the listed content types will be affected, we remain committed to launching dedicated servers on our console platforms and providing the continued maintenance and bug fixing important to supporting our fan base.

 "So what does this mean exactly? There will be no additional content added to Friday the 13th: The Game. This includes Uber Jason, The Grendel Map, Jason Kill Packs, Clothing, Emotes and new Counselors."

 

 

Cheers for giving us a dead MP game Sony. emot-thumbsup.gif

Looking back at this year, I think the only game I've got a lot out of with this is Rayman Legends, although I may give Destiny 2 more time at some point.

 

It's partly bad luck, I guess - quite a few of the big games I already had or never interested me in the first place. But then the lack of any decent Vita/cross platform games has made it seem worse, and certain genres are still being over-represented (especially narrative-based stuff).

 

And then this month - it makes sense to have MP based games given it's an online subscription, but two together?

Friday 13th is an excellent janky little horror game. It’s a pure slasher simulator compared to Dead by Daylight. With a good party it’s hilarious.

 

You’d be foolish to turn your noses up at it.

Hey, what bastard got me all excited for Nioh for no reason?!

 

Looks like a crap month, maybe even worse than the David Cage shite they gave away before. Hope there's at least some decent store discounts next month.
