The "Friday The 13th: The Game" release date move to next year was not a total disappointment for fans of the horror genre. In lieu of a launch this year, developer Gun Media opted for more time to fine tune the game, promising that that it will be loaded with more exciting features.

But Gun Media is not totally turning a blind eye on the hype and excitement it created among fans with its previous announcement of a 2016 "Friday The 13th: The Game" release. With the upcoming beta, gamers will still be getting a piece of the action with Gun Media having scheduled the "Friday the 13th" game beta to go live before 2016 ends.

In fact, Gun Media recently revealed some details about the "Friday The 13th: The Game" beta gameplay. In a recent post, Gun Media co-founder Wes Keltner revealed what is in store for gamers as far as leveling up, XP, spending points and how to unlock contents, reports FanSided.

Gun Media does not want players to unlock every content that will be offered when "Friday The 13th: The Game" release date eventually arrives. Since this phase is essentially a testing phase, the "Friday The 13th: The Game" beta does allow some contents to be unlocked as a way of testing the workings of the game mechanics and system.

As for the unlocking of those contents that may be accessed during the "Friday the 13th: The Game" beta, it will basically be paid for by the XP points earned by gamers during the beta phase. Keltner revealed that players will be earning points every time they do some action, such as putting vehicle parts for instance. Players will then get to see how much XP they have just gained at the end of every match.

However, there is just one aspect in the upcoming "Friday the 13th: The Game" beta that got fans divided. Apparently, whatever gamers do or progress they made during the beta phase of the game will not be carried over when the final game releases. It will be a clean slate for everyone by then.

Gun Media is yet to announce a definite "Friday The 13th: The Game" release date. However, recent posts in its official Facebook page confirm that the game is scheduled for an early 2017 launch. Be sure to follow GamenGuide for the latest news and update of the highly anticipated horror title.
