v1.11

The Forest - January 23, 2019

This patch fixes some small issues that have come up since the last patch release.

The Forest VR is terrifying, atmospheric and clumsy all at once

The Forest - December 19, 2018

The Forest VR somehow manages to be both a clumsy VR port and a brilliant example of how virtual reality can improve a game. It does some things much better than the non-VR version: I want its clever watch-based HUD in every VR game, and playing with a headset is far scarier and more atmospheric. But it also feels like Endnight Games couldn’t break free of the constraints of the base game, and lots of its VR elements end up feeling like afterthoughts. The parts that do work—and even the ones that don't—exemplify just how much changes when you make a game for virtual reality.

Hotfix-v1.10d

The Forest - December 12, 2018

Here’s a small fix for the update released yesterday, fixing an issue where the end boss could become invisible, and adding another fix for radeon series cards.

The Forest's free update adds hang gliders, crossbows and more monsters

The Forest - December 11, 2018

I haven’t finished The Forest yet because, frankly, I’m too damn scared. I’m not particularly comfortable in regular forests at night, let alone ones containing mutated cannibals and labyrinthine cave networks full of mutilated corpses. And now, thanks to the 1.10 update, there are two new horrifying monsters presumably waiting to snack on me. 

V1.10

The Forest - December 10, 2018

This Update adds new buildables, some new caves to find those buildables in, a new weapon type, two new late game creatures, and a ton more. If you’ve completed the alternate ending you’ll also find some new decorative buildables available in your survival book.

The Forest s mutant cannibal island gets even weirder in its next update

The Forest - December 5, 2018

Weird new mutants, hang-gliders and twisted effigies of a comfortable suburban life lost – The Forest is getting a bit stranger in a big update next week. After four years in early access, the sandbox survival-horror game launched in full back in April, but Endnight Games never stopped work on it. Since launch, the game has seen a full VR mode added, a lot of tweaks and tuning and continued bug-hunting. The next update will be expanding its vaguely lovecraftian world a bit, with new things to build and fight and I think the player character may be cracking up a bit in the trailer below.

New update details

v1.09

The Forest - August 16, 2018

This patch focuses on performance and bug fixing. We’ve also been working on a much larger content focused update and should have news we can reveal about that soon.

VR beta patch 3

The Forest - June 15, 2018

This patch adds multiplayer support to the VR version of The Forest and also adds some fixes and improvements to the regular 2d version of the game.

Patch 1.08

The Forest - June 8, 2018

This patch fixes an issue where some PC’s could hang for a long time on starting a new game. We also fixed an issue where some dedicated servers wouldn’t be visible to all players, as well as a bug with hard survival in multiplayer save games that would set clients to normal instead of hard, and a fix for an issue with stashing burning weapons.

VR beta patch 2

The Forest - May 29, 2018

This patch implements some of the suggestions and ideas we’ve received since releasing the VR beta version last week. We also fixed an issue where the resolution was being applied incorrectly in VR making the game look like it was rendering lower res than it was.

Wot I Think: The Forest

The Forest - May 23, 2018

I’ve loved The Forest when I’ve played it in the past. I first took a look in 2014, finding it limited but a lot of fun. I then went back in 2015 to discover it was hugely improved and far more involved. I even videoed half an hour of my inept ambling. I have been back since then, but not written any more, but it’s probably close to two years since I really dug into it. Now it’s out in a final version, I’m surprised how little has changed in the last three years, but also pleased to find the same mix of survivor and terror. Not quite so pleased to discover so many of the classic bugs are still there. (more…)

The Forest - May 22, 2018

Here is a patch for some of the issues that have come up in today’s VR beta release. We also saw people asking for smooth rotation and so added that option in, and changed how to drop logs/bodies.
