There's a big Friday the 13th Game update today which raises the level cap to 150 on PS4, Xbox One and Steam.
On top of that, players can a host of changes, including the ability to play with bots rather than players online. To enjoy the new feature, you simply have to select Offline Play and Offline Bots from the main menu.
The offline bots will also have three difficulty levels you can choose from: Easy, Normal and Hard.
On the Friday the 13th forums, community member ShiftySamurai, explains:
The higher the difficulty you choose, the longer counselors will remember you being in the area, the more likely they are to fight you, the quicker they are to react to your presence, the quicker they are to exit hiding spaces when you leave, and the more likely they are to use Medical Sprays smartly. They'll fix cars, boats, hide in closets, under beds, in sleeping bags, barricade doors, and more to keep you from making them into another victim. Feel like honing your single prey hunting skills? You'll be able to select from 1 to 7 counselors in your offline game to ensure that you are playing against exactly how many counselors you want to stalk.
Players will be happy to know that the level cap has jumped up to 150 and as you earn XP you'll be able to unlock a variety of items, including:
- Clothing color options for the counselors
- New grab kills for Jason
- Additional rewards added in the coming week
