Friday the 13th: The Game’s final update is out this month and unfortunately, dedicated servers will be shut down. This means that the game will revert to peer-to-peer matchmaking for online. Here’s what the final update entails:

All things must come to an end, eventually. And while that statement might sound ominous, there is a lot to cover and a lot of news to highlight, so please read on.

Dedicated Servers for Friday the 13th: The Game will be decommissioned in the upcoming patch, set to roll out this month, November 2020. What this means is that the game will revert back to peer to peer matchmaking for Quick Play lobbies. The Database Servers, however, will stay active and continue to house all player progression and unlocks, so users can continue to play Friday the 13th: The Game via peer to peer Quick Play and Private Matches.

The patch that will go live in November will also be the final patch for Friday the 13th: The Game. The team has been hard at work completing 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 in the week prior to the patch going live.

The official forums will be archived in a locked state, so that players can still reference the information that lives on the various boards. As for the online presence of the game and official channels, we will be switching to a more minimal approach, keeping our social media channels active for any necessary announcements only.

The game will continue to be available for sale, and as such will continue to receive the full support of JasonKillsBugs.com as a resource for troubleshooting. Please do continue to use the support site for any assistance needed.

As for the Double XP, CP, and Tape Drop Rates that we set in the start of the pandemic, the team will opt to leave this active indefinitely.

The team at Gun wants to thank each and every player and fan that has made Friday the 13th: The Game what it is today. We know this news is hard to hear, despite being inevitable. We appreciate each and every one of you.

Stay tuned on what is next for Gun by following along on the Official Gun TwitterFacebook, and Instagram.

*Update* Friday the 13th final update 1.39 is out on November 10th! Here are patch notes:

Patch 1.39

This patch will deploy on Tuesday, November 10th.

Patch is scheduled to start rolling out at roughly 10AM Eastern US Time Tuesday morning on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

Switch will be delayed. As soon as we have definite timing for the Switch we will update here.

Combat Stance 

  • Commonly referred to as Sliding or Teleporting, the team has fixed an issue allowing players to manipulate combat stance changes.

  • Players may still see, when in spectator mode, counselors attempting to perform the exploit, however this is a visual artifact.

Pocket Knife Issues

  • Instant break free by using health spray or firecrackers when grabbed, resulting in not only an instant break free but also retention of the player’s pocket knife, has been fixed.

  • Loss of pocket knives in circumstances when firecrackers are used has also been fixed.

Jason – Game Play

  • Ability Unlock/Recharge Rate toggle in private matches has been fixed to include both parameters.

  • Lobby icon irregularities resulting in an inaccurate lobby icon have been fixed.

  • Abduction, when Jason is able to Morph while holding a counselor, has been fixed.

  • Mask HP loopholes where use of a flare gun or firecrackers could get the mask to come off too quickly have been fixed.

  • Jason Kill Sequence – Kneel: The issue where the kneeling animation during the Jason Kill process could be repeated has been fixed.

Counselor – Game Play

  • Hiding Under Bed: An issue where players could hide under beds and become stuck in a way where Jason could not kill them has been fixed. While it is still possible in some instances to cause the bug, the counselor will be able to be killed by Jason in that state.

  • Lobby icon irregularities resulting in an inaccurate lobby icon have been fixed.

  • Numerous safe spots around the maps have been fixed, including the Pinehurst Roof method by way of Tommy’s bed.

  • Players will now see an error if they roll and sell perks too quickly, but the game will stay functional and no longer lock up. Players can then continue to roll and sell perks, being cautious of not overloading the roll system.

  • An issue causing the Counselor clothing options to not save properly when altering color/items has been resolved. Feel free to go back to playing Pink Cop Kenny.

  • Tommy Jarvis voice lines have been restored, and this is between him and Jason.

General

  • Various Interaction Locks have been fixed, particularly those that occurred when players would input either multiple button presses or rapid button presses in short succession, rapid pick up and put down of items, and multiple inputs appearing with on screen prompts.

  • Fuse Box and Fuse spawn for the Cop call has been extended to ensure the fuse does not spawn inside the house with the fuse repair box.

  • With this patch, matchmaking will shift away from Dedicated Servers and onto Peer to Peer Matchmaking for all matches.

    • The game will still be playable online publicly with the Quick Play option and privately with the Private Match option.

    • For more on this change, as well as the status of the game going forward, please follow up with our statement here.
