‘The Forest’ to Bring its Cannibal Holocaust to PS4

I just realized I missed a pretty sizable announcement from last month, so here’s me making that up to you. Also, sorry. December was a crazy month for me — and most of you, I’m sure — and in all that insanity I seemed to have overlooked the announcement that the the open-world survival horror game The Forest is headed to the PS4 later this year.

Endnight Games co-founder Anna Terekhova broke the news on the PlayStation Blog, where she also detailed some of the things we can expect from its console debut.

The Forest has already benefited from the seven months it’s spent on Steam Early Access, and it’ll only get better on PS4. The game will make use of the PS4’s share functionality, giving players the ability to “show off the bases they have built, the places they’ve encountered or just how many trees they’ve cut down,” writes Terekhova. “In multiplayer, hearing the crackling walkie-talkie out of the dual shock controller adds an extra layer of realism, and brings players deeper into the experience.”

No word on a release date yet, but I wouldn’t be surprised to hear that it’s at least a couple months out. Endnight Games is continuing to use community feedback to help guide its development on PS4, so if you have an idea you think they need to hear, now is the time to share it.

    Of all the ways to display your average female decapitated head I have never thought about it in the way presented.

    Any human female willing to part with their processor?

    Yes. This can only be good. Wife has been playing it on steam and loves it. Only thing stopping me playing is Im not a pc gamer. Would Also like to see rust and life is feudal announced

      Rust is getting there but is still a long way from being playable as a multiplayer game, due to there being fuck all way of navigating a map effectively. It needs a road system of some sort, a compass or something, and more landmarks to give these (ugh) procedurally generated maps actual identity. Honestly I’m no fan of procedurally generated maps. Not one of the new ‘maps’ has a tenth the identity of old Rustmap. I was ecstatic to find out they’re remaking the old map for the new game though. Give it six months and navigation won’t be an issue at all. Consoles honestly, would be a great home for Rust, as well as PC, it definitely lends itself in its structure, graphics and gameplay to both formats. I’ve enjoyed both old rust and new rust and have to say I’d love to see new players embrace it on all formats.

      Tell me more about Life is Feudal, the name is interesting???

      *Edit* Just checked it out on youtube. Wow. Looks awesome!

    To be honest I dont think the wife has been playing rust much at the mo, she enjoys the co op side of the games over solo so thats probally why. She Seems to sway towards life is feudal (and the forest) but as I said im not a pc gamer and havnt researched the titles so cant tell you much except its another open world survival, sorry. She was into another called stomping ground (same sort of open world survival but with dinosaurs roaming the map) Have you played it? I think the last thing she said about that was it looked as if the game had been abandoned by the devs and she hasnt played since so probally best not to buy early access if you havnt and its still available. I like the idea of these games on consoles and I think your right saing they would hav a great home. Looking forward to sony’s H1Z1. Would also like to see more cross platform play between the PC and the PS4

    I love The Forest for it’s visuals and sounds. It’s FANTASTIC! Gameplay is great too. But playing game that have no objectives (i’m sorry, stay alive is the game objective) is boring me after while. I hope this will change someday…
