What is the Sons of the Forest release date?

According to Endnight Games, Sons of the Forest is set to be released on February 23rd, 2023 as confirmed in a Tweet:

How much will Sons of the Forest cost?

As mentioned in a Tweet, Endnight Games confirmed the cost of Sons of the Forest to be $29.99 USD on its Twitter account. It is unclear how much the game will cost in different currencies such as EUR, GBP, etc.

However, since the original The Forest game only costs 16.79 EUR on EU Markets vs. 18.38 EUR on the US Market (at the time of writing, adjusting for currency exchange fees), it would be reasonable to expect it to be even cheaper in EUR/other currencies.

Is Sons of the Forest on Steam?

Absolutely, yes, it was published to the Steam store on May 2022 according to SteamDB. You may add it to your wishlist by clicking on the Steam Page.

Will Sons of the Forest be on consoles?

At the time of writing, Endnight Games have not announced any Console release, so it is safe to say that Sons of the Forest will not be on Consoles for the time being. It sounds like the developers are focused on bringing the best experience for PC players.

However, it is important to highlight that The Forest got a PlayStation 4 port so perhaps this is something that could be implemented in the future if Sons of the Forest is successful enough.

Will Sons of the Forest have crossplay?

Consindering that it isn’t currently available for Consoles, crossplay will not be supported right now because it is only on one platform (PC). Additionally, The Forest, its predecessor, did not support cross-play either despite being available for Consoles. Therefore, this is something to consider too.


In conclusion, Sons of the Forest, the highly-anticipated sequel to the popular survival horror game, The Forest, is set to be released on February 23rd, 2023. The game will be priced at $29.99 USD and will be available on the Steam store.

At this time, there are no plans for a console release and crossplay will not be supported. Fans are eagerly awaiting the game’s release and look forward to experiencing the new cannibal-infested heliscape.
