“We have now huge plans to maintain including duties Kelvin can full,” says Endnight Video games. There are plans to probably have the AI companion assist construct defensive walls round our bases, whereas additionally repairing/fortifying bases when mandatory.

Proper now, Kelvin is nice for amassing constructing assets, and even meals, however he’s truthfully a tad ineffective past that. That stated, he’s nonetheless enjoyable to maintain round, in addition to Virginia.

“For Virgina, we plan so as to add extra to her AI, significantly giving her extra bravery if she has a weapon, and in addition relying on what number of mutants/cannibals she has killed,” shares Endnight when on the subject of Sons of the Forest’s beloved companions, which had been immediately successful with gamers, even if Kelvin does enjoy tearing treehouses down.

As well as, Endnight Video games has additionally shared a number of different issues it plans to work on. Firstly, new particulars and cutscenes might be added to reinforce Sons of the Forest’s story, in addition to new variations to cannibal camps, together with a brand new enemy.

When the sport launched, there was an instantaneous demand for log sleds to return in Sons of the Forest. This explicit merchandise, used for transferring a tonne of logs from level A to level B in The Forest, isn’t current in Sons of the Forest proper now. Endnight shares that, “this is among the actually cool issues about Early Entry. Internally, we didn’t realise how a lot individuals actually appreciated the log sled, and as a result of variety of bugs it had within the first recreation, we weren’t certain if it was value placing again in or not.”

Alas, these of us who dearly miss the beloved log sled could have some excellent news: “Within the final week since launch, it’s change into clear that it’s one thing gamers miss.” It’s by no means affirmation that the log sled will return, however the truth that Endnight has acknowledged how many people miss the contraption a lot offers me some hope that it’ll return.

A full run-down of the community Q&A with Endnight Games can be found on YouTube, and also you’ll little doubt discover that loads of questions have nonetheless been left unanswered. For instance, you may also be begging for a quicker approach round this huge island; getting from one facet to the opposite can take a stable half an hour of holding ‘W’ at one of the best of instances.

“We do have what we expect is a very cool concept for [faster forms of transportation] however don’t wish to go into particulars in case it isn’t as enjoyable as we expect it is likely to be, or doesn’t work properly with the surroundings,” says Endnight.

Most not too long ago, my pals and I arrange an limitless quantity of ziplines across the island, even turning the height of the snowy mountain into our personal sledding course. I’m fairly proud of this mode of transportation for now, but when Endnight might let me zip round in one of many many golf buggies dotted across the place, that might be cool too.
