Since its launch, Friday the 13th: The Game, has been making the headlines with disconnecting troubles, glitches, and most of all, the lack of an Xbox One patch that deters console players from making the most out of their gameplay. Against all odds, the survival horror title is incredibly popular among gamers.
IllFonic promised to solve all the above issues, but fans have discovered that the developer has focused its efforts in another direction. IllFonic is currently working on the Dead Alliance instead of fixing the Friday the 13th: The Game bugs. That is what displeased fans brought up on the agenda in Friday the 13th: The Game forums.
The Dead Alliance, which recently got an announcement trailer, is a team-based first person shooter, slated to launch in late August. The game was officially introduced at the E3 event, so its launch is not new information. What caused the anger outrage among Friday the 13th: The Game communities was the fact that the game has some major technical and gameplay issues that need to be fixed. Fans in discussion forums said the IllFonic team should be working on Friday the 13th: The Game improvements instead or readying a zombie survival shooter for a release.
Some players even put forward the idea that the game has been befallen by glitches and server issues because IllFonic was trying to balance between the Dead Alliance and Friday the 13th: The Game. As a result, the latter felt like a beta game, riddled with issues.
Friday the 13th: The Game players have all rights to demand some more efforts on IllFonic’s end and remain hopeful that all issues will be adequately addressed in near future.
As for the Dead Alliance, it was first called Moving Hazard, but its name has been changed. The game will have a single-player horde mode as well as several multiplayer modes – King of the Hill, Team Deathmatch, and a MOBA- inspired Attrition.
What makes the game different from all zombie-themed shooters are the zMods that enable players to control zombies around them and turn the game in their favor. The Dead Alliance Open Beta will be running from July 27th through July 31st. It will be fully released on August 27th for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
