Friday the 13th: The Game facing problems with servers, bugs and crashes

Friday the 13th: The Game was released last Friday, but the launch did not appear to have been particularly positive. In the past few hours, many users have complained about problems with servers, serious bugs and crashes which continues in the game.

Friday the 13th: The Game, the title based on the popular horror franchise, made its debut this week. Unfortunately for Gun Media, not everything came out as well as expected as users have reported several issues at launch.

Specifically, users report the inability to connect to servers and the reduced stability of the game, particularly prone to unexpected crashes even on configurations that exceeds the recommended requirements. There were also bugs and technical graphics issue, the gameplay also also appears to have mechanics and skills that are definitely unbalanced.

Also, the studio is developing a patch to fix a problem that causes 2 downloadable content of Friday the 13th: The Game – Savini Jason Skin and Counselor Clothing Pack – not to appear in the game even though players have redeemed their code. This error has only been reported in the version for Steam.

On the other hand, several players of PlayStation 4 have indicated that their codes of DLC appear like “inactive”. If this happened to you, you should not worry, as they are only waiting for the content to be accepted by Sony. Once that happens, all codes will work.

The problems are not exclusive to the PlayStation 4 version, as some users have not received their codes to download it on Xbox One. According to Gun Media, what happened is that Microsoft did not give them enough codes, so they already working to correct this and send the codes as soon as possible.

Surely you remember that these are not the only problems Gun Media has faced in the last few hours. What we mean is that several of its sponsors at Kickstarter were upset as media and content creators received early access to Friday the 13th: The Game.

According to early reports, there would be many players who would have demanded a refund, the developers for their part, said they were aware of the situation and are working to resolve the main issues reported by the community. It is unclear whether this will affect the work on the single player campaign, which is currently scheduled for summer.

Friday the 13th: The Game is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

    Shi**y company that doesn’t deserve a dime. Steam tried stealing my money when I asked for a refund so I had to call up my credit card company and tell them about the bugs, crashes, and worst of all the servers never connecting. This game is trash and so are the Developers at Gun Media. They don’t deserve to ever work on any video game again. Go find another job. What an embarrassment this is.

      Agreed 100% with u. 🙂

      Gun Media is c*ap and need a closed down.

      Rubbish. You’re a child throwing a tan*rum. It’s a good game. Have patience.

    • Aaron blanchard

      Agreed. The game is of PS3 quality and is full if bugs. Another rushed game sold unfinished.

    Ffs I paid £31 for this but you don’t see me throwing tan*rums. They’re a relatively small outfit, so cut them some slack. I for one am grateful that the game got made. I’ve managed to play 6 games and I love it. Just be patient. It’s only been 3 days. Stop being spoiled brats, people.

    It’s just a shame that the connection issues will see review scores being lowered unfairly because people are too petulant to wait until these issues are fixed. It happened with Driveclub too.

    As for bugs, I haven’t experienced any yet. And criticism of the graphics is so overblown. It’s not Horizon but it looks good enough.

    • Aaron blanchard

      Yeah, people need to shut up when buying a game that’s barely playable. Thirty quid is nothing and wouldn’t even expect it to work for that price. Choo choo choo…. ahh ahh ahh ahh!!

    Character movement is stiff, texture popping everywhere and just a feeling of incomplete all around. Jason’s mom would be disgraced.
