Now's the perfect time for veteran and new players alike to return to Camp Crystal Lake in Friday the 13th: The Game. Even though today is only Friday the 10th, developer Illfonic has just announced an impromptu double XP weekend! The event will run from today, Febuary 9th, to Monday, Febuary 12th. This is a great oppertunity for hardcore players to continue the long road to the new level cap of 150 and unlock some new and exclusive high-level Jason grab kills along the way at levels 108, 118, and 125! However, it should be noted that counselors will still have to spend 2,500 CP points to unlock each kill once they hit the proper level. New players, on the other hand, will be able to jump right in and catch up to their friends to quickly unlock some of the playable Jasons.


For those of you on the fence about playing this game, I highly recommend giving it a shot, based on my experience. It has become an almost daily ritual for me and the social aspect of Friday the 13th: The Game alone has been well worth it. I have met so many new friends over the last several months and honestly just had a blast working with them to try to escape from Jason. Sure, it's not a perfect game by any means but the developers do care and have made vast improvements consistently since the launch last May.

Will you be joining us in the fight against Jason Voorhees this weekend? See you at camp!
