Just like PAX East 2016, Gun Media had a panel for its asymmetrical multiplayer game about everyone's favorite masked killer at PAX East 2017. We've been following the progress of Jason Voorhees' latest adventure with a rather large amount of excitement, and those in attendance this year were treated to a marvellous new trailer.
The trailer shows just how much progress the team has made with the game as we get closer to launch. The environments look so much more detailed and fascinating, and everything down to lighting and animation just looks so much better. Particularly striking is the way Jason himself moves. It's a 1:1 recreation of how the crazed killer moves in the films. This should come as no surprise to anyone keeping up with the games news, as Kane Hodder, who was Jason in four of the franchise's films did the mo-cap work for the hulking horror.
The developer's fondness for this franchise was on full display for the franchise at last year's panel, and this year was no different, as the environments and even some of the characters – such as Cory Feldman's Tommy Jarvis – have been lovingly recreated for this game. It's great to see just how much the dev cares about the property, and makes this product that much more promising.
One word of warning, though: if you're even the slightest bit squeamish, this trailer is something you might want to skip, as it is incredibly brutal and violent. Otherwise, enjoy!
