Endnight Games has shared new gameplay details on its survival horror sequel, Sons Of The Forest.

A Steam page for the game has just gone live, allowing PC fans to keep tabs as we approach launch day. Speaking of a release date, it appears Sons Of The Forest is still targeting October 2022, as we previously reported.


The page doesn’t drop a ton of new information, though there are some intriguing highlights from the game’s description. Most notably, Sons Of The Forest will sport seasons, dynamically altering your environment as time passes.

About Sons Of The Forest

Sent to find a missing billionaire on a remote island, you find yourself in a cannibal-infested hellscape. Craft, build, and struggle to survive, alone or with friends, in this terrifying new open-world survival horror simulator.

A Survival Horror Simulator

Experience complete freedom to tackle the world how you want. You decide what you do, where to go and how best to survive. There are no NPC’s barking orders at you or giving you missions you don’t want to do. You give the orders, you choose what happens next.

Fight Demons

Enter a world where nowhere is safe and fight against a range of mutated creatures, some who are almost human like, and others who are like nothing you have ever seen before. Armed with pistols, axes, stun batons and more, protect yourself and those you care for.

Build and Craft

Feel every interaction; Break sticks to make fires. Use an axe to cut out windows and floors. Build a small cabin, or a sea-side compound, the choice is yours.

Changing Seasons

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.

Co-op Gameplay

Survive alone, or with friends. Share items and work together to build defenses. Bring back-up to explore above and below ground.

So far, the sequel has only been confirmed for PC though the original game did make its way to consoles. Hopefully we’re not far away from seeing a huge gameplay reveal.
