After 25 years of being away from horror games, Jason Voorhees will return to frighten his long time fans in the latest ‘Friday the 13th’ game. Series creator Sean Cunningham has confirmed earlier this year that the game will be released in October on multiple platforms. But other than that, not much on the title is known at this time.

With more horror related video games being announced everyday this genre will only grow and continue to spread fear across the globe. This is one of the best times for horror fanatics not just because there are more and more horror games coming out – but they are actually starting to get really scary. Like the title says: horror is king.
