What is Sons of the Forest about?
At the heart of Sons of the Forest is a survival horror crafting game that will test your wits and ability to survive. A billionaire is missing on a remote island, and you are and your team are sent in to find him. The only problem: there are cannibals on the island who are more than eager to eat you alive…or dead.
You can play alone or with friends, but you don’t need to worry about missions or side-quests from NPCs. Using your crafting skills, you’ll set up camp to protect your base while you head into the forest to search for signs of the billionaire. With humanlike mutated monsters, you’ll need your best weapons to take down these demons.
When it comes to crafting, you decide where you want to build a camp. You can choose an open area to see if any enemies are coming toward you, or a secluded spot near a river with plenty of resources. The building system is quite realistic, but you’ll need to learn what you need to design specific structures and items.
There are also various seasons in the game. During spring and summer, you can catch fresh fish from streams or the ocean or head into the forest to find wild game. You’ll need to practise doing so in Sons of the Forest so that you have ample supplies and food for the coming winter.
