Now, the special, special boy of Mrs. Voorhees and the guy in the hockey mask is coming to deliver his unique brand of horror. You can check out the new gameplay trailer for the game below, as Jason brings his brand of combat to the game:


Voorhees joins the roster as a playable character when the game will have its official launch on Tuesday, May 28. Voorhees will work as a Tank class character, towering over the other fighters, and a moveset that incorporates his axe and machete weapons.

Jason also has a teleporting ability to show up right behind his opponents and stuff them into a sleeping bag, fatally folding a bed in half to launch enemies off the map, and more. The trailer also revealed a glimpse of Uber Jason, a new character variant for Voorhees based on his appearance from Jason X. The inclusion of his Uber Jason look from the film is a lot of fun.

MultiVersus will be a free downloadable title that launches on Tuesday. The game will be available as a free download starting at 4:00 a.m. PDT /7:00 a.m. EDT on consoles and 10:00 a.m. PDT / 1:00 p.m. EDT on PC.

Also at launch, Multiversus will feature its new PvE Rifts mode. This will offer players a new way to experience the game outside of competitive PvP matches. With the Rifts mode, players will be able to learn mechanics, test characters, and sharpen their skills, whether it’s jumping in solo or cooperatively online with a friend.
