While Endnight Games’ The Forest is still in Early Access on Steam, it’s received quite the praise since it was released back in 2014. PlayStation 4 fans, however, have been wondering just when the game was headed their way, since they were going to get it back in 2015.
Well, at this weekend’s PlayStation Experience, a new teaser for the game was released, showcasing the game’s multiplayer aspect. Sadly, there was no specific release date attached to the trailer other than a 2018 release, but at least that’s something.
In The Forest, you are the lone survivor of a passenger jet crash (unless you play with a friend). You find yourself in a mysterious forest battling to stay alive against a society of cannibalistic mutants. You must fight to survive not only the cannibals, but nature itself. That involves doing things like chopping wood for fire, building a campsite, setting traps and hunting for food. You’ll also have to make use of stealth tactics to avoid detection by the cannibals.
The Forest is slated to come out of Early Access in 2018. If you haven’t tried it, head over to its Steam page.
