Jason Voorhees is back in the first Friday the 13th game since the 1989 survival horror title developed for NES.

EGM reports this outing will be an asymmetrical, co-op and competitive multiplayer title.

The game is in development for multiple platforms and set for an October release.

Friday the 13th will feature both movie lore and content culled from the upcoming TV series.

“We felt the timing was right to finally explore Jason, Camp Crystal Lake, and the rest of the Friday the 13th story in interactive form,” said the original film’s creator Sean S. Cunningham.“We have some exciting new ideas for a game that supplies plenty of replay value, while delivering the kinds of thrills and scares that fans of the franchise have come to expect.”

The studio handling development will be announced in the weeks to come.
