Created by developer Endnight Games, Sons Of The Forest is a sequel to The Forest, a horror game which launched in 2018.
While details on Sons Of The Forest have been kept under wraps, yesterday (May 4) Endnight Games launched a Steam page for the game, which reveals what fans can expect.
The game’s story will follow a character who has been “sent to find a missing billionaire on a remote island” but finds themselves “in a cannibal-infested hellscape.”
The Steam page also reveals that Sons Of The Forest will include an in-game seasons feature.
“Pluck fresh salmon directly from streams in spring and summer. Collect and store meat for the cold winter months. You’re not alone on this island, so as winter rolls in and food and resources become scarce you won’t be the only one looking for a meal,” reads the page.
Besides having to feed themselves, players will have to contend with “a range of mutated creatures, some who are almost human like, and others who are like nothing you have ever seen before.”
The Steam page also has some new screenshots that show players fending off cannibals, hunting for food, and exploring the mysterious island.
Sons Of The Forest is currently set to launch in October 2022, after catching a delay in March 2022. Announcing the setback, Endnight Games admitted it had been “overly-ambitious” in thinking the game could launch by the original release date of May 2022.
