Sons Of The Forest Release Time Countdown

The Forest was a game that took a lot of people by surprise. It was a survival horror game that was well ahead of its time and grew in popularity in the years after the game initially launched on Steam. Sons Of The Forest will be an evolution of an already revolutionary game according to the beta testers who already played it.

Why Will Sons Of The Forest Launch In Early Access?

Although we say that Sons Of The Forest will launch on February 23rd, this is technically not true. The only reason why this is not true is that Sons Of The Forest will be an early access game. This means that Sons Of The Forest will not be a completed game and players will have the chance to give the developers feedback on what needs to be improved.

Right now, the early access window is looking to be around 6-8 months according to the developers. This would make the actual release date somewhere between August and October. But this can change. If the developers feel like Sons Of The Forest is in a good enough state, the game will have a full launch right then and there. So player feedback is very important for the developers at this time.
