An update for Friday the 13th: The Game couldn’t have come at a more opportune time.

The update today adds a free new Jason based on his appearance in the fourth Friday the 13th movie, The Final Chapter. The Jason unlocks at level 44 and comes with the Pig Splitter weapon along with three new weapon kills. The trailer above demonstrates one such weapon kill which may make people with male anatomy especially squeamish. According to the official blog, Part IV Jason will have the strengths of a running ability, extra weapon strength, and extra destruction strength. However, he also has slower speed in the water, slower shift speed, and extra vulnerability to traps.

The update also adds a new map to the game containing the house of Tommy Jarvis, which served as the location of The Final Chapter. The map containing the Jarvis Residence also includes the vacation house across the street.
