Survival Horror Sequel Sons of the Forest Revealed at The Game Awards
The title is a follow-up to 2014’s The Forest from Endnight Games.

During last night’s Game Awards event, Endnight Games premiered the first trailer for its next title, Sons of the Forest. While the details are still slim for the time being, the “fight demons” tattoo and creepy imagery are telling, as is the premise of the game’s predecessor, 2014’s The Forest.
The trailer is displayed in first person and opens up with a character riding across an unknown location in a helicopter. Soon, the chopper crashes and we see some extremely creepy demonic dancing of sorts before the footage shifts over to gameplay of a couple military types traversing a forest, axes in hand. They reach a cave and inside lies a great many eyeless creatures crawling around. These monsters seem less-than-friendly about the unexpected visitors, so we imagine things get pretty bloody from here. However, the trailer ends on this note and leaves viewers hungry for more.
Much like The Forest, we imagine Sons of the Forest will have a similar open world survival horror premise of staying alive in a forest occupied by demonic mutants. The previous game’s tagline touts the concepts of building, exploring, and surviving. It stands to reason that the sequel will follow a similar style and even expand on it. No other details are known at this time.
The trailer premiere did not include a release date, but you can bet we will follow along with this project here on Dead Entertainment. Stay tuned for updates ahead!
