Sons of the Forest is a first-person video game developed by Endnight Games and published by Newnight. It is the sequel to the 2014 video game The Forest and is set to be released on February 23, 2023 for Microsoft Windows


On a forested island inhabited by cannibals and mutated creatures, the player searches for a missing billionaire. This time around the map will be around 4 times bigger then the previous title, and will have much more variety of foliage and trees. Much like The Forest, this sequel will focus heavily on crafting, cooking, and combat – the latter of which has been massively expanded to encompass more weapon types. Guns will be more prevalent, although ammunition will be limited, so Sons of the Forest will have a melee-focus. Given that Endpoint is also massively expanding the size and variety of the mutants here, having a shotgun on hand to help you out of a sticky situation is never a bad thing.

Sons of the Forest is the long-awaited and much-anticipated sequel to 2014’s The Forest. Among the new games for 2023 on our radar, Endnight Games’ next venture is essentially The Forest 2 and expands on just about everything its forerunner gave us – in narrative terms, the size of its world, and the myriad weapons, tools and gadgets that we’ll need to survive on a cannibal-ridden island. 

The Forest sits among some of the best survival games we’ve ever played, and Sons of the Forest is shaping up to follow suit. Below we’ve gathered all the latest Sons of the Forest news for the horror survival game, including story beats, release date information and platform details. To the latter end, Sons of the Forest will launch exclusively on PC, but given the fact its predecessor made its way to PS4 in the end, we reckon a console port down the line is more than possible. Read on for everything you need to know about Sons of the Forest.  


The Forest featured two endings, and Sons of the Forest effectively makes the first canon – where an older Timmy is seen struggling to suppress his mutation and investigating an island labeled ‘Site 2.’ That’s where the Sons of the Forest story unfolds – you’re sent to the remote island to locate a missing billionaire, and quickly find yourself trapped in a cannibal-infested nightmare. Like The Forest before it, this sequel will focus on visual storytelling more so than scripted encounters or lengthy cutscenes, with the core focus being on survival against the horrors of the island.
