Pinehurst & an Imposter: What to Expect From the New ‘Friday the 13th’ Game Update

Since it’s release in May of 2017, Friday the 13th: The Game has become one of the most popular multiplayer games available, and since it’s original release, the addition of new maps and counselors including both Fox and Shelly from Friday the 13th Part III as well as the addition of Jason from Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter have kept the game interesting. It has been a while since a new addition has been made in the form of a new map or a new Jason, but that changes later today (January 27th).

The new free DLC that will be live will include the imposter Jason as well as a new map, the Pinehurst Youth Development Center from Friday the 13th: A New Beginning.

A few complaints have also arisen as to how kitten-like Jason has become. It has been increasingly easier for counselors to slip away from Jason and for a lack of better terms, troll him, by continuously beating him with various objects and escaping much easier. To remedy this situation and make it once more enjoyable to play as Jason, the following changes will also be included in the newest update:

  • Each Jason will see a slight speed increase: he won’t be competing in any marathons anytime soon, but he will move a bit faster.
  • Jason’s reach has been reevaluated and improved: this adjustment will make it harder for counselors to slip through Jason’s grab, but will still maintain fairness for players acting as counselors.
  • Each Jason will now start with two additional throwing knives: Chad is a dick and likes to dodge in and out of windows, with the addition of more throwing knives, Jason will be able to damage counselors inside of cabins near windows as well as counselors running through the woods.

Spoiler Alert!

The next big DLC update will include Uber Jason, the frozen head kill and playable map of the Grendel from Jason X.

‘Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile’: First Look at Zac Efron as Ted Bundy

It’s safe to say that Zac Efron has left his Disney days behind him in a big way. In the last two years he has been in films such as Dirty Grandpa, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates and the film adaptation of Baywatch, but he has moved on to much more sinister pastures with his role as notorious serial killer Ted Bundy in the upcoming film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.

They began filming last year and the project is headed by Oscar-nominated director, Joe Berlinger (Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2), and was written by Michael Werwie (A Rose Reborn).

The film will be told from the perspective of Bundy’s longtime girlfriend, Elizabeth Kloepfer (played by Lily Collins), who lived in denial of his atrocities for years before ultimately turning him over to police.

Yesterday, Efron took to Twitter to give the world a sneak peak of himself as Ted Bundy with this post:

A slightly closer look at the two side by side:

closer compare.jpg

After his arrest, Bundy confessed to 30 murders in seven states between 1974 and 1978. He took the real number of victims he claimed to the grave with him, but the number is believed to be much higher.

Visually, it appears Efron has what it takes to portray Bundy; only time will tell if he can truly channel one of America’s most notorious madmen.
