  • How Sons Of The Forest's magazine teases future updates

    A magazine in Sons Of The Forest might hint at an upcoming game update. If the magazine is to be taken seriously, a VR port could eventually show up in the game. It's not surprising to think that Sons Of The Forest will be available in VR closer to the game's official release at this point in the early-access game's development. Players can prepare enough Sons of the Forest Items in the game.

    Sons Of The Forest may not quite represent the full experience the development team is aiming for right now, but it's safe to say that the assets in the game so far have been a deliberate detail. The magazines scattered throughout the game each reveal something about the lore of Sons Of The Forest, somewhat reminiscent of help tips and advertisements for in-game items. While some players have speculated that VR references indicate the game's story, a specific magazine featuring a VR headset could be evidence of future plans for the game to release on other platforms.

    Sons Of The Forest Magazine
    Magazines in Sons Of The Forest can't be collected like printed emails or certain books in the game, but these magazines still serve more purposes than decorating floors and furniture throughout the game. For anyone progressing through the story or just exploring Sons Of The Forest's map, they're bound to show up at some point, as the magazine's repeated images appear in a number of places. For players who are keen to pay attention to the content of certain magazine covers, most of the illustrations in the magazines show pictures that are highly relevant to the game.

    All magazines in games usually contain images of assets in the game in one form or another. Reading the fine print on the cover of a particular magazine can explain the strange properties of some of the substances found around the cave walls, revealed to be a lucrative metal native to the island. Another magazine is an ad for an in-game energy bar, which helps maintain Sons Of The Forest's food and sleep levels. However, one of them shows a generic virtual reality headset, along with the text "Is this the future of gaming?" Given the content of the magazine cover's relationship to games, the VR magazine cover could have implications for Sons Of The Forest's future development.

    Potential VR port of Sons Of The Forest
    During Sons Of The Forest's latest and second round of developer Q&As, the community brought up VR and post-launch support, and the developers didn't completely dismiss those possibilities. Endnight Games is taking this opportunity to remind players that it intends to make the most of Sons Of The Forest in its early access state, leading to a full launch in the near future. Given that much of the game's upcoming content remains unannounced, and the developer is avoiding direct answers on the VR port, that's a possible theory. A specific VR magazine cover found in the game is likely proof that a VR port is or was in the works.

    The survival horror setting of Sons Of The Forest would be the perfect experience ported to the VR platform. Simplified controls for games, as well as realistic graphics, physics, and mechanics are features that can take full advantage of immersive VR consoles. VR fans should keep an eye out for updates from the Sons Of The Forest development team throughout the modern support period. For more game guides, please visit
