Just in time for Friday the 13th, Gun Media has announced that a new playable character will be coming very soon to their popular asymmetric horror game.
This newly added playable counsellor goes by the name of Victoria Sterling, though it’s clear that she’s based on one of the most annoying characters in the whole slasher series: Melissa Paur from Friday The 13th Part VII: A New Blood. As you probably remember, she’s the spoilt, rich girl who receives her nasty comeuppance from the iconic masked butcherer, Jason Voorhees.
Here’s the full rundown, courtesy of Gun Media’s Wes Keltner:
I would like to introduce Victoria Sterling, Camp Crystal Lake’s newest counselor. Similar to Chad, Victoria comes from money and she is used to getting her way. So much so that she often is perceived as “bitchy” and manipulative. She doesn’t mean any physical harm, but it’s safe to say that in a pinch, she’s looking out for herself first. Victoria has low repair and strength, so she will need to rely on her above average stamina pool and stealth skills.
It would be ill-advised for Victoria to square up to Jason without some additional help from another counselor. In a 1v1 situation you’ll find Victoria doing less fighting, and more yelling for her Dad…the Dean of an Ivy League junior college. Getting a better picture now of Victoria? She’s the worst, in the best possible way!
Victoria will be added at no additional cost in the next update. Note; Victoria will not have access to the premium DLC clothing packs (Spring Break and Halloween).
As always, it’s great to see Gun Media adding even more extra free content into their 7v1 multiplayer-centric hunt-’em-up. With recent updates to both Part VII Jason and the Offline Bots, too, Friday The 13th: The Game continues to feel like the blood-soaked gift that keeps on giving, and we can’t wait to see what else the developers have up their sleeves for us in the weeks and months to come.
