Friday The 13th: The Game is an asymmetrical multiplayer, survival game, that is played from a third-person perspective. It is based on the movie Friday The 13th, You get to play as either the Jason Voorhees or the survivors. The game was released three years back in May 2017 as a digital release. And, later, in October 2017, we got a physical release too. .
Now, three years later on November 3, 2020, we get to know that the dedicated servers for Friday The 13th: The Game will soon be closed. Click here to read the official announcement. So, you must be thinking that you won’t be able to play this game any longer. However, that is not the case. It is only the dedicated servers that are getting decommissioned. Players would still be able to play the game using Quick Play lobbies which use a peer to peer matchmaking. Not just Quick Play, but you can play using Private Matches too. And, the database servers would still stay active. So, there is nothing to worry about in terms of player progression and unlocks.
The biggest question that most of you would be having is that when will this happen. Well, we have received no specific date. However, it is for sure that the servers would be closed along with an upcoming patch that will release in November 2020. The team has worked hard to complete fixes for a long list of player issues to include in that final patch, and the community can expect finalized patch notes to be released the week before the patch is released. As for the forums, they will be in a locked state now. This means that you can view the content of the forums, however, are not able to post anything new on it. Now, social media channels would be the only medium for the game’s online presence. It would be minimal and only used for necessary announcements. The game will remain on sale, and keep receiving the support of JasonKillsBugs.com for troubleshooting. At the start of the COVID 19 pandemic, the developers set Double XP, CP, and Tape Drop Rates. This would be kept as it is indefinitely now.
