Endnight Games have released a trailer for their upcoming indie title The Forest which is a PC exclusive. You play as the lone survivor of a plane crash who's ended up on an island filled with cannibals.

We wanted to create a world where we could drop the player into and give them free range to do whatever they want, similar to something like Minecraft where a lot of the fun comes from decisions that you make. Players build up their skills and equipment in order to get to new parts of The Forest, but specific goals won't be spelled out. Instead, you'll be dropped in the world and will have to explore without any defined missions. If you want to uncover the story of The Forest, clues are hidden amongst the environment.

There will be an ending, but it's optional and the developers think that many gamers will get so caught up in surviving that they won't even realize there's a conclusion. As for the cannibals residing in The Forest, we are taking a unique approach. These cannibals aren't evil, just hungry. If you kill their friends they'll cry over their bodies or in some instances they'll even run away. Other times they'll watch you from a vantage point in the trees without moving in & slowly stalk you waiting for an opportunity.

Those who can survive in The Forest long enough will be able to earn a spot on the leader boards. For the hardcore survivalists out there, permadeath will also be an option.

The game will be in Beta in the next few months and the footage in the following trailer is merely early alpha footage and work in progress.

EndNight games have released a 3rd Trailer for their upcoming early access title The Forest and a little statement to go with it.

Hey everyone,

Here’s our third trailer, showing a more extended look at some of our survival systems and also what life is like in the forest a little further into the game.

Attached to this latest trailer is our new targeted release date – we’re a little behind with our ambitious early 2014 release but overall things are progressing really well. We’ve been adding lots of cool stuff and hope you guys like what we have been up to.

Thanks again for all your support, emails and comments both here and on steam Greenlight, Youtube and other sites. You guys have made this game possible and we really want it to be an amazing experience for everyone (which is why we keep delaying it!)

Ben and the team at Endnight Games

I really liked the look of this 5 years ago (came out of early access last year) and I never got around to purchasing it. It has now gone through a lot of updates AND a co-op mode and has decent rating of 92% on Steam so I have taken the plunge (33% off currently). I have been after a decent PvE survival game for a long time after so many promising looking ones evolved into PvP frag fests or Battle Royale style games and this has none of that and a bonus of co-op too and for a little over £10 I thought why not.

Still havent got around to playing this properly a year later but its now and on sale for £6.97 which is a steal for the amount of content it now has. This along with are 2 of the highest rated Survival Games on Steam which also have fantastic co-op modes.

Endnight Games are currently working on which we should be hearing more information about very soon.​
