Sons of the Forest Now Lets Players Strum Their Guitars

Sons of the Forest Endnight Games

The latest update for the survival game Sons of the Forest is here. Patch 05 adds a bunch of new stuff that you can enjoy, including the ability to play the guitar.

Sons of the Forest is a survival game where you are assigned to find a missing billionaire on an island riddled with cannibals. While things may seem dire in such games, Patch 05 lets you enjoy the downtime by letting you play the guitar. Strum a few chords and sing some songs with your fellow survivors while sitting around a campfire.

Now for the serious stuff. This update added new content, such as new wearable clothing, new found footage, and a new cove area where you can find beached sailboats. Furthermore, the map has been expanded and now contains 79 new ponds and 34 new lakes that you can go to.

For improvements, you'll occasionally find some cannibals engage in a test of strength by fighting one another. Watch the show and see who comes out on top; just make sure to find a good hiding spot to avoid being seen by patrolling enemies.
