Sons Of The Forest: How To Play Online With Friends

If you’re curious about how you can play online with friends in Sons Of Forest, don’t worry, we got your back.

Sons Of The Forest is one of the most brutal survival and horror games, no matter how experienced you’re in gaming. You will bathe in a sweat if you’re going to play this. The game became so famous even though it is only in the early access stage that it sold more than 2 million copies in just 24 hours.

There’s so much more to come, Devs said. After the launch of early access, there’s no doubt that steam was temporarily down because too many users were trying to access the game simultaneously. There was too much graph in the down detector showing how steam goes down after the launch of The Forest’s sequel.

In case you don’t know, if you’re playing solo, you will have the help of two AI companions. The first one is Kelvin, and later in the game, you will find out Virginia.
