1. Sons Of The Forest
Release date: October 2022
Sons Of The Forest is developed by End Night Games. This game is supposed to act as a sequel to 2014’s “The Forest”. It promises a seriously terrifying looking open world, survival, horror experience. In this game you’re sent to a remote island in order to find a missing billionaire. The island you land on is infested with cannibals and it’s your job to survive by doing anything possible, crafting, building, alone or with friends. It is a terrifyingly immersive game because of the superb graphics. You can build many kinds of buildings and weapons. Unlike The Forest, there are guns in this game. This game also has different weather conditions like summer, spring, snow, etc. The horror element kicks in when you have to explore caves filled with cannibals to find resources or progress the story, thus, not a game for the light-hearted.
