Friday The 13th Update 1.14 Is Out Now, New Counsellor Revealed

It's always Friday in here

Work continues on the incredibly popular Friday the 13th game with the latest update squashing bugs, introducing a new counsellor Mitch Floyd, rain, and the ability to push counsellors out of the way. There is also a new map, and a new version of Jason to play.

It has also been revealed that Friday the 13th Part III’s villain, Fox, will be coming to the game as part of a future update. IN the meantime, here’s what you’re getting in 1.14:

New Features

Rain

  • The Rain feature is now available and players may have a chance to encounter this new weather in any of the current playable maps.

Counselors pushing

  • Counselors are now able to “push” other counselors
  • In order to prevent players from griefing via “bodyblocking”, we have introduced a new feature that allows Counselors to push each other. The player being pushed will slowly walk away in the direction opposite of the player pushing. This feature does not affect Jason.

Changes

  • Thick Skinned perk changes
    1. Thick Skinned now reduces ALL damage ——[Known Issue] Perks that had their values adjusted will have no in-game effect until re-equipped
    2. The tooltip for Thick Skinned has been changed from “Take less damage from all incoming attacks.” to “Take less damage.“
    3. “Originally, Thick Skinned was intended to reduce damage specifically from Jason’s’ attacks. However, there was a bug that was causing Thick Skinned to apply twice which in turn also caused the perk to incorrectly reduce all incoming damage. This issue was fixed in the last patch. After considering our internal testing and community feedback, we agreed that the previous iteration of Thick Skinned worked better for game balance when the inflated damage reduction values were no longer present.”
  • Stun Duration adjusted
    1. Jason’s Stun Duration timer has been adjusted
    2. “Jason’s Stun Duration has been adjusted across all counselors and items to better balance the changes made by the previous bug fix.”
  • Grease Monkey perk rebalanced
    1. Reduced the effectiveness of the Grease Monkey perk ——[Known Issue] Perks that had their values adjusted will have no in-game effect until re-equipped
    2. “Grease Monkey was individually causing too large of an impact. We have adjusted Grease Monkey to be more consistent with other perks.”
  • Trap Damage adjusted
    1. All counselors now take the same amount of damage from traps
    2. “Traps have been adjusted to inflict the same amount of damage across all counselors. Players that activate a trap will now always be wounded unless equipped with an adequate trap damage reduction perk.”
