The Forest Is Getting Full VR Support This Month

by Jamie Feltham • May 1st, 2018

A few months back we reported that long-in-development survival game The Forest, would finally be getting some form of VR support after developer Endnight Games teased as much years ago. Now we also know when said support is coming, and what it will consist of.

Yesterday Endnight finally released the full version of the game after years of Early Access development. In a blog announcing the release, though, the team also confirmed that the VR support will be coming on May 22nd, though didn’t confirm which headsets will be supported. Better yet, Endnight explained that the entire game can be played in VR, complete with a full 3D interface to suit the medium and motion controls to realistic actions. Given that The Forest is visually stunning and a fully-featured survival game, that’s really good to hear.

You can sort of think of The Forest as a more mature version of Minecraft. In the game, you find yourself stranded in an expansive woodland environment and must gather resources to build and settlement and weapons to survive. Things get a bit more complicated, though, when terrifying enemies start attacking you. Fortunately, the game features online co-op support so a friend can help.

“We think it’s the most fun vr game we’ve ever played and can’t wait to share it with everyone,” Endnight noted in its blog. The game’s also on its way to PlayStation 4, but no word on PSVR support thus far.

We’ll be very excited to see how the VR support for The Forest works out. Check back later in the month for our impressions.

    I had never heard of this game before but the trailer looks really cool. Does this have multiplayer at all? I hope it does come to PSVR.

      says right in the article it has coop. Not sure if i could handle that game in VR lol, id need to get a box of Depends (I have the pancake version)

        Hah! Thanks. That’s what I get for heading right over to the Steam page rather than finishing the article…

      I played an early alpha, less than 2 years ago. Back then, building/crafting were already really polished, and coop worked well. This is a title you shouldn’t miss, albeit it is really scary at night or in dark caves. Even in non-VR.

        Not to mention the music / ambience / soundtrack… Once you overlook your blood covered katana after slaying multiple nude cannibals in an attempt to steal your son back from them, it’s a truly magic experience.

      It’s an amazing game in all honestly, but I’m pretty sure there’s no hope of it coming to PSVR.

    This game had better come to Psvr, if they expect my money.
