Sons of the Forest, an open-world survival game, is available via early access. Endnight Games, the developer, has announced that players can download the game from 12 pm ET on February 23, 2023. Players will be able to get the early access pre-release version. Like its predecessor, Sons of the Forest occurs on an isolated and unexplored island after a crash landing. The second instalment in the series focuses on finding a missing billionaire. Players can play solo or with up to eight players, with an AI-controlled partner named Kelvin for solo players. Some players might wonder if Sons of the Forest is VR-compatible, so we will take you through what it entails.
In the game, players must gather resources to survive harsh environmental conditions and dangerous cannibals and mutants. Players will also be able to recruit friendly companions, such as Virginia, a three-legged female mutant. Sons of the Forest boasts stunning visuals and improved mechanics but may have technical issues and bugs during its Early Access period. Sons of the Forest is available exclusively via Steam Early Access. This means that it is only available on PC for the time being.
Is Sons of the Forest VR-compatible? Fans speculate on possible virtual reality release
As the highly anticipated release of Sons of the Forest’s early access breaks out, many fans are eager to know whether or not the game will be playable in VR. The Forest, the prequel to Sons of the Forest, was released in 2014 and swiftly became one of the most sought-after games, with a dedicated and devoted fanbase.
After eleven long years, the sequel is finally here, and the buzz around it is just as big as we expected. With its release just a day after the launch of the PSVR 2, the possibility of enjoying the game in VR is on everyone’s mind.
Unfortunately, the game is not currently playable on PS5, which also means it cannot be played on PSVR 2. On the Sons of the Forest Steam page, there is no mention of the game being playable in VR. This may be disappointing for some, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that the game will never be playable in VR. The Forest, the prequel to Sons of the Forest, is available in VR, so there is a possibility that the devs will add VR mode to the new game.
There is immense potential for a VR patch for Sons of the Forest, and we can only hope that the developers will release such a patch in the future. The original game already had a VR mode, which many fans loved. Adding VR to the sequel would only enhance the immersive experience that the game offers.
While there is no further news, we can speculate that the developers may add VR support, given the success of the VR mode in the first game. As soon as we have any official news on Sons of the Forest being VR-compatible, you will be the first to know.
