Sons of the Forest is a direct sequel to The Forest, a 2014 survival horror that follows the story of Eric LeBlanc, a plane crash survivor who is forced to fight cannibal monsters while searching for his son Timmy. It promises unsettling gameplay.
Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time a sequel has been postponed.
Sons of the Forest has already been delayed three months from its original release date. It’s a shame because the recent trailer paints a very horrifying picture. With obvious inspiration from the likes of The Descent and Cannibal Holocaust, it’s a definite choice for horror fans around the world.
But we’ll have to wait a little longer before we can confirm that.
IGN’s review of The Forest gave it an 8.4/10, stating: It’s a harrowing survival ordeal that knows how to manipulate tension and create a sense of the real world with its complex inner workings and the mysteries I longed to discover. It’s I Am Legend and has meaningful story progression that isn’t too welcome. Ignore the warnings on the walls and the hazards hidden among the trees. If you want a unique and memorable survival horror experience, you absolutely must. “
