Sons of the Forest is the much-anticipated sequel to the horror survival game The Forest. Despite being announced a few years ago, Endnight Games has been as silent as a spooky forest at night, with very little marketing or reveals for the game.

Despite the lack of information, fans have extrapolated some details about the game, including the return of the survival and building gameplay, with a mix of cave and land exploration. The creepy enemies and foes also make a return, although not much is known about them in this iteration of the survival game.

But, enough about what fans of the series have discovered about the sequel, let’s get into the trailers and gameplay for the game and also some of the platform details, including the Sons of the Forest release date.

Sons Of The Forest Release date

The Sons of the Forest release date is set for May 20, 2022, as revealed in the developer’s latest trailer.

The game was originally expected to release sometime this year, but alas that isn’t the case, with some extra work needed. You can watch the latest trailer for the game below:

As of right now, Sons of the Forest will only release on PC. We don’t know if a console release is planned down the line.

Sons Of The Forest Gameplay

We haven’t seen an extended gameplay demo for Sons of the Forest. However, the second trailer for the game, released in December 2020 and did show some more in-depth gameplay, including combat, exploration, and even some environments set inside modern buildings, which will presumably relate to the game’s story somehow.
