The highly-anticipated sequel to the hit survival horror game is finally on the horizon, and the developers are revealing more and more details about what players can expect.
Dubbed Sons of the Forest, the game is set to release on February 23, 2023, and promises to offer an even more thrilling and immersive experience than its predecessor.
One of the most exciting new features of Sons of the Forest is the massive, diverse game world that players will explore. While the first game featured a large map, it primarily consisted of forests, rivers, and shipwrecks.
However, in Sons of the Forest, players can expect to encounter a wide variety of environments, including new biomes, weather systems, and even seasonal changes.
In fact, the map is set to be four times larger than the original, offering a truly vast and immersive world for players to discover.
On scale alone, the world is about 4x bigger than in The Forest, but everything is more detailed this time around, with more variety of plants and trees, more types of logs and stumps, and visually when you craft items like a molotov cocktail, you actually see as the player takes some rag and stuffs it into a bottle of vodka. When you place a log on a wall or cut a floor, you see the player do it. We wanted the game to feel like a camping simulator mixed with terrifying horror.

But the game isn’t just about exploration and survival – the developers have also greatly improved the AI of the enemies players will encounter.
According to an interview with GamesRadar, the team behind Sons of the Forest has created “a whole new AI that causes some really intriguing and terrifying encounters.” This means that players will face off against smarter, more challenging opponents, making for an even more thrilling and intense gameplay experience.
Additionally, the game will also have companions straight from Fallout game, which will make the game even more interesting.
With all these new features and improvements, Sons of the Forest is shaping up to be a truly epic and unforgettable experience for horror fans everywhere.
