Sons of the Forest Release Date: How Much Does It Cost?
Sons of the Forest is the follow-up to the well-liked survival game The Forest from publisher and developer Endnight Games.
Due in large part to the lack of information provided by the team responsible since it was announced in late 2019, speculation about its release date and other details has abounded.
However, even though there may not be many official details, the game’s two trailers at least give us a general idea of what to anticipate. The Sons of the Forest release date is listed here along with information on gameplay, the plot, and other topics.
Sons of the Forest Story
Sons of the Forest’s story may or may not have a significant role, but the trailers that have been released so far indicate that it begins (surprise, surprise) with your character being stranded in a forest after their helicopter crashes.
However, it’s equally likely that we’ll be dealing with a thinner story that depends on the environment to contextualise the player’s actions as opposed to the eerie lady who may or may not be a hallucination. We can only assume until the developer provides more information.
Sons of the Forest Release Date
Sons of the Forest’s developer Endnight Games later confirmed that more time is needed to complete the game after initially being given a broad 2021 release window. The new release window was announced as “early to mid 2022” in a tweet, with a promise of an exact release date following the publication of the third trailer for the game. It was later revealed that Sons of the Forest’s release date had been set to May 20, 2022 on November 30, 2021.
The game was postponed until October 2022 after the developer acknowledged that a May launch was “overly ambitious” on March 25, 2022. Sons of the Forest’s release date was once again delayed, this time to February 23, 2023, according to a developer announcement made on August 31, 2022. It read: “Since it has been difficult to determine an exact release date for our new game Sons Of The Forest, we must postpone it one last time today.
We will release on February 23, 2023, with a suggested retail price of $29.99 USD, giving us time to complete the polish we feel is necessary.
Actual Release Date: February 23, 2023
Sons of the Forest Gameplay
Sons of the Forest appears to draw from every classic game in the genre in terms of gameplay. There is a lot of exploration, with some added horror from encounters with mutants, cannibals, or other humanoids that appear to be out to get you. When you’re not fighting, you’ll probably interact with some sort of crafting system or, at the very least, indulge your fantasy of becoming a lumberjack. You can fight them off with guns, sticks, a taser, and a crossbow.
The vastly improved visuals that add extra detail to wood-cutting, shovelling dirt, and assembling your makeshift tools are one thing to take note of. The third trailer for the game, which is included below, also showed off some action-packed battle scenes against various monstrosities while emphasising the use of a shotgun, an axe, and a stun baton.
Sons of the Forest System Requirements
Sons of the Forest’s system requirements have not yet been disclosed, but given how much better the trailers that have been released so far look, we’re going to venture a guess that we’ll need more powerful PCs than those required to run The Forest.
Where Can You Buy Sons of the Forest and How Much Does It Cost?
Sons of the Forest will be accessible via Steam on the PC. It’s possible, based on its predecessor, that it will also be released on PlayStation, but we’ll have to wait for official confirmation before making that assumption.
