Friday the 13th is almost upon us, and the developers behind Friday the 13th: The Game are making sure to take full advantage, as the game will have a double XP weekend to celebrate the date.

The company announced that starting next Friday, the game would be partnering up with Stack-Up, a charity that supports military veterans. The campaign was started yesterday and fans can donate now through October 15.

While all that’s been announced for the game is the double XP weekend, it wouldn’t be surprising to see more content drop on Friday. The developers have been teasing the inclusion of a new map based on Jarvis House as well as the Jason from Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter for some time now, with Halloween right around the corner, it wouldn’t be a bad time to try and drop in some new scares.
When Friday the 13th: The Game launched, the reception was rocky, to say the least. However, things have turned around for the game, and it’s now one of the PS4’s most popular multiplayer experiences. For those who haven’t yet, make sure to check out our review of the game:
Friday the 13th: The Game shouldn’t have been released in the sad state it currently is in. From glitches that make players invincible to terrible matchmaking that had me waiting over 10 minutes to get into a room, it’s putting it nicely to call the end product a mess. It’s really heartbreaking to see since there are still positives that manage to shine through if one can look past the galling lack of polish. The core gameplay, when it works properly, can be fun when played with friends, and there are some refreshing ideas underneath the jank. Several months from now it may become the multiplayer hit it strives to be, but right now it’s an embarrassing release that can’t be recommended.
Friday the 13th: The Game is now available.
