In the world of gaming, it seems, even the dead can rise again. Friday the 13th: The Game has spectacularly clawed its way back up to the bestsellers list on the Xbox games chart, proving that even an axe-wielding villain like Jason Voorhees can be a real crowd-puller.

At its inception, this multiplayer horror had a vast community of dedicated players, relishing the opportunity to play the classic cat-and-mouse chase. One player donned the bloody hockey mask of Jason Voorhees, while the rest were cast as the hapless camp counselors. But disappointingly, the sun began to set on Camp Crystal Lake, as player interest dwindled, largely due to a lack of gripping content updates and a few other hurdles.

With the Friday the 13th brand embroiled in legal disputes, new content for the game became as elusive as the whereabouts of Jason’s mother’s head. With games like this, a regular infusion of fresh content is key to maintaining player engagement. And in the absence of this, the game, it seemed, had met a fate similar to Jason’s many victims.

But like Jason, Friday the 13th: The Game wasn’t ready for its end credits just yet. It managed to stay on its feet for a few more years, staring down the barrel of its impending demise. It is due to be delisted on December 31st, 2023, at which point it will become a ghost town, no longer playable. Gamers will no-doubt jump on the upcoming Texas Chainsaw Massacre game as it’s going to be very similar.

To honour its impending departure from the gaming world, the game is currently available at a slashing discount, with the Xbox version reduced to a mere £4.19. This fire sale has prompted a surge in sales, catapulting the game back into the top 10 best-selling Xbox games. At present, Friday the 13th: The Game proudly holds the position of the eighth best-selling digital Xbox game, showcasing its enduring popularity among gamers.

Best-Selling Xbox Games July 2023 are:

1. Diablo 4
2. Grand Theft Auto Online
3. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Cross-Gen Bundle
4. Grand Theft Auto 5: Premium Edition
5. Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint: Deluxe Edition
6. Hogwarts Legacy (Xbox One)
7. Minecraft
8. Friday the 13th: The Game
9. Hogwarts Legacy (Xbox Series X version)
10. Grand Theft Auto 4

The ghoulish delight of Friday the 13th: The Game is preceded by Hogwarts Legacy’s Xbox Series X version and is followed by the robust old-timer, Grand Theft Auto 4, currently enjoying its own price slash.

It should be noted that anyone who bags Friday the 13th: The Game during its £4.19/$4.99 discount period will enjoy a fully-loaded version of the game. As the game braces for shutdown, players are automatically bumped up to max level, gifted the best rolls for all 30 legendary perks, and other bonus unlockables.

Time is ticking, so anyone keen on a last-ditch sprint through Camp Crystal Lake before the curtain falls should snap it up for the low price while they can.

Friday the 13th: The Game is still available for PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.
