October is arguably the biggest month for Friday the 13th: The Game since it initially launched this past May. The asymmetric multiplayer horror title is receiving a number of free and paid content updates this month, as revealed by the game’s DLC road map. Next Friday the 13th will see the addition of the Jarvis House map and Jason skin from Friday the 13th Part 4: The Final Chapter, as well as a brand new camp counselor.
Mitch Floyd will be joining the unlucky souls that are terrorized by Jason Voorhees when he is added to Friday the 13th: The Game on Friday, October 13th. Mitch is a hippie leftover from the 60s, with the headband, tie-dye clothes, and penchant for smoking pot to match. Anyone that would like the chance to play as Mitch will be able to do so free of charge. As Illfonic itself put it, “this bud’s on us.”
Some Friday the 13th buffs may be wondering which film Mitch Floyd is from. Since the October 13th update is so heavy on Part 4 content, one would imagine he was from that well-received entry in the franchise. On the contrary, Mitch is not a character from any of the Friday the 13th movies. That being said, he does seem to be based on the character “Chuck” from Friday the 13th Part 3, who partook in similar recreational activities as Mitch.
While he may not be a counselor pulled directly from the movies, Mitch should still be a welcome addition to the game. Even so, some fans are likely tired of being given new camp counselors and Jason skins, and are ready for the single player challenges to be added. Unfortunately, there is still no solid release date for when single player will come to Friday the 13th: The Game, and if the recently released DLC road map is any indication, it won’t be until 2018 at the earliest.
Besides single player challenges, there’s some other interesting content on the horizon for Friday the 13th: The Game players. Fans can look forward to offline bots and Virtual Cabin 2.0 to be added to the game later this year, and a mysterious new game mode will be introduced at some point next year.
Despite its rocky launch and lukewarm critical reception, Friday the 13th: The Game has proven to be one of the more popular asymmetric multiplayer games on the market. So, as long as Illfonic continues to support it with paid and free content updates like the addition of camp counselor Mitch Floyd, then fans should expect Friday the 13th: The Game‘s online community to remain active for some time.
Friday the 13th: The Game is out now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
