Way back at the end of 2021, Warner Bros. announced that they were teaming up with Player First Games to develop a free-to-play platform fighter game called MultiVersus. The game will finally be making its way out into the world on May 28th as “a free download for PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 consoles, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One consoles, and PC (Steam and Epic Games Store), with full cross-play and cross-progression support”… and a newly unveiled trailer for Season 1: Puns & Villainy reveals that Jason Voorhees from the Friday the 13th horror movie franchise and Agent Smith from The Matrix film series will be included as playable characters alongside a long list of characters based on Warner Bros. Discovery franchises. The announced characters are Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, Black Adam, and The Joker of DC Comics; Shaggy and Velma of Scooby-Doo; Bugs Bunny, Tasmanian Devil a.k.a. Taz, and Marvin the Martian of Looney Tunes; Arya Stark from Game of Thrones; Tom and Jerry; Finn the Human, Jake the Dog, and Banana Guard of Adventure Time; Steven Universe and Garnet of Steven Universe; The Iron Giant, LeBron James from Space Jam: A New Legacy; Rick and Morty; Gizmo and Stripe from Gremlins; and “an extraordinary original creature named Reindog.”

The inclusion of Jason Voorhees in MultiVersus marks the character’s return to the gaming world years after a copyright lawsuit between original Friday the 13th director / producer Sean S. Cunningham and screenwriter Victor Miller caused the likes of Friday the 13th: The Game and Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle to go dormant. Judging by a recent Jason Universe announcement, it sounds like there’s even more gaming action on the way.
