Back at the 2019 Game Awards, we had a see Son of the forest, the sequel to the cult favorite survival horror game The forest. It’s been almost exactly a year since we’ve seen any new footage of the game, but this week developer Endnight Games shared a new trailer that offers another look at the game, its story, and its release window. .
The one-and-a-half-minute clip does a great job of juxtaposing mundane and edgy moments side by side. One moment, the player character chops wood to build a cabin in a clearing, only to come face to face with a grotesque mutant moments later. It also provides tantalizing story clues. So, if you want to enter the game blindly, we don’t recommend watching the trailer. “Everything you see is recorded in real time from our latest version,” according to Endnight Games.
