Following the poor server performance during the release month for the new Friday The 13th game, the developers have apologized by offering the first upcoming DLC release to all players for free.

Gun Media wanted to thank their player base for the patience they have had with the server issues, and have mentioned that a previously planned paid DLC pack will now be pushed out to all players for free.

The new DLC pack includes a retro style Jason and a new soundtrack created by Swedish electronic artist Mitch Murder to fit the retro style. Each of the counselors has new clothing items in the upcoming DLC pack too, and every player will be rewarded with 13,000 customization points.

On top of the new content, Gun Media has revealed that they will be running a double XP event from June 23 to June 25.

Gun Media revealed in their press release that they were surprised by the huge following Friday the 13th the game received during its launch month. "Overall, Gun Media is very thankful to our fans, supporters, and those interested in the game. We were completely overwhelmed by the amount of users that tried to play at launch, enough to break our servers and force us to upgrade. That process has evened out since then, however, we are still working to smooth out the experience even more across all three platforms."

Have you played Friday the 13th yet? The new DLC lands on June 20 and the double XP event will follow next weekend, starting on June 23, so there's never been a better time to pick the game up
