It has been long overdue, but finally Sons of the Forest is now available on Steam. The expectation of him rivaled Starfield and Silksong, which is not saying little. So much so, that it has managed to succeed both on the Valve platform and on Twitch as soon as it was available.
Where did Sons of the Forest come from? We are facing a survival and horror video game (survival horror) developed by Endnight Games, released on February 23 via Early Access and available on PC. If it doesn’t sound like you at first, it’s the sequel to The Forest.
What is the game about. We belong to a search and rescue team that has a helicopter accident. Remember that in The Forest it was a plane crash and we were accompanied by our son. After the accident, a strange figure hits us. Our goal is to survive through survival techniques (eating, drinking, shelter, etc.), unravel the mysteries that the island hides (the cannibals return) and fulfill our mission.
great expectation. The trailers and information promised an experience as immersive, fun and hard as The Forest, but with all the advantages of a sequel made with current technology. The graphic section, the animations and the improved inventory and manufacturing menu are some examples.
What happened with Sons of the Forest and Steam at launch. The anticipation for the game exploded at 7:00 p.m. on February 23. The Steam servers experienced issues even before the game went live for purchase. The MeinMMO medium points out that many users were not even able to buy the game for an hour or two. Only those who used money from the Steam wallet (faster payment) managed to access.
Most viewed on Twitch. At 8:00 p.m., it was already the most watched game on the platform with more than half a million viewers, surpassing true titans such as Valorant, League of Legends, Hogwarts Legacy and DOTA 2, among others.
As we write this news, Sons of the Forest has crept in as the sixth most played game on Steam, according to SteamDB. Outperforms the recent Hogwarts Legacy and the omnipresent GTA V. We remind you that the game is available on PC (Steam) for a price of 28.99 euros and can now be purchased without problems.
