Friday the 13th's free update adds new content, including a new map, counselor, Jason Part IV and a whole bunch of bug fixes. Gun Media and Illfonic also announced that a double XP weekend event begins on Friday the 13th of October 2017 and will run through until the 15th of October. Physical editions of the Friday the 13th: The Game are now available to purchase for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.



Mitch Floyd is the latest counselor to join and will be available at no additional charge to all players!

Here's the full list of patch notes for October's update:

Rain

The Rain feature is now available and players may have a chance to encounter this new weather in any of the current playable maps.
Counselors pushing

Counselors are now able to "push" other counselors.
In order to prevent players from griefing via "bodyblocking", we have introduced a new feature that allows Counselors to push each other. The player being pushed will slowly walk away in the direction opposite of the player pushing. This feature does not affect Jason.
Changes

Thick Skinned now reduces all damage. Perks that had their values adjusted will have no in-game effect until re-equipped.
The tooltip for Thick Skinned has been changed from "Take less damage from all incoming attacks." to "Take less damage."
"Originally, Thick Skinned was intended to reduce damage specifically from Jason's' attacks. However, there was a bug that was causing Thick Skinned to apply twice which in turn also caused the perk to incorrectly reduce all incoming damage. This issue was fixed in the last patch. After considering our internal testing and community feedback, we agreed that the previous iteration of Thick Skinned worked better for game balance when the inflated damage reduction values were no longer present."
Jason's Stun Duration timer has been adjusted.
"Jason's Stun Duration has been adjusted across all counselors and items to better balance the changes made by the previous bug fix."
Reduced the effectiveness of the Grease Monkey perk. Perks that had their values adjusted will have no in-game effect until re-equipped.
"Grease Monkey was individually causing too large of an impact. We have adjusted Grease Monkey to be more consistent with other perks."
All counselors now take the same amount of damage from traps.
"Traps have been adjusted to inflict the same amount of damage across all counselors. Players that activate a trap will now always be wounded unless equipped with an adequate trap damage reduction perk."

I read that a Single Player mode for Friday the 13th was on the way, but I guess not.
