What are the latest updates for the Son Of The Forest game, the sequel to the horror game, The Forest? Click here to learn about the latest news.
The Forest was a hit horror-survival game that was developed and published by Endnight Games in 2014. And in 2019, during the Game Awards, the developer teased a sequel to its cult-classic horror game in the form of a short trailer. They’re naming the sequel, Son Of The Forest, and it’s going to be another horror survival game.
But since that teaser in 2019, what’s the latest update for this sequel game? What will be its gameplay and is there already a date for its release? Let’s discuss the latest updates for Sons Of The Forest below.
A New Trailer For Sons Of The Forest
A new trailer for the game was released last December 2020. It was a bit longer, which revealed more of the kind of gameplay you would expect when you play Sons Of The Forest. From the trailer, you can see that there will be a lot of things to do in the game, including chopping wood, hunting, and building your shelter. You will also see that you’ll still deal with cannibalistic mutants that are also inhabiting the forest.
It also looks like that there will be a lot of exploring in the game. Players can journey deeper into the forest. You will even explore what seems like an abandoned facility. Inside it, you will see a lounge with its TV still open. You will also find a mask that the trailer will later show you wearing while dealing with cannibalistic mutants.
You can also see from the trailer how realistic the game would be. The graphics are life-like, making you feel like you are really in the forest, especially since it’s played on a first-person view. The actions are also realistic, you will even see wood chips flying by as you chop wood.
Why This Game Will Be Better
The Forest was a hit game because the developers were able to successfully combine the elements of horror with survival gameplay. The game also doesn’t have a set quest or mission, and it’s really up to the players to play however they want. The only goal is to keep surviving in the forest. And it seems like Sons Of The Forest will be continuing this kind of gameplay.
But the trailer also revealed some improvements. For one, the game’s overall graphics is way better than its predecessor. It also seems that the sequel will be more action-packed, making it more exciting to play. But to truly determine how great this game is, we’ll have to wait until it launches.
Expected Release Date
The end of the trailer revealed the year 2021, which hints that the game will become available sometime in 2021. The exact date is still unknown. However, Sons Of The Forest may become available through early access, just like its predecessor. The game spent 4 years in early access before officially becoming available to the PlayStation 4 and PC in 2018.
There’s a possibility that this is also the route that the sequel game will take. Of course, the developer could go a different route and release the game fully this year. We will just have to wait and see what happens.
