Latest Friday the 13th Patch Slashes Some Annoying Exploits

The latest update for IllFonic’s asymmetrical slasher title, Friday the 13th: The Game, has been released alongside the entire list of patch notes. The game’s new patch focuses primarily on fixing some still existing bugs in the game, including a couple of exploits that gave players an unfair advantage, and should improve the overall experience for players.

Some of the more notable bug fixes in this update include fixes to several locations where Counselors could exploit the game, preventing Jason from attacking or grabbing them and giving them an unfair advantage in matches. Another resolved exploit involved the game’s interaction areas and their unintended ability to allow players to teleport outside of the playable area. Other bug fixes include the removal of floating objects on many of the game’s maps, a fix to a bug that would make the game’s emote wheel remain on screen when entering a car, a resolution to an issue where certain Counselors would not react to dead bodies, and more.

The full list of patch notes is as follows:
