Endnight Games, the Sons Of The Forest developers, are finally ready to share the sequel. However, the game is not yet ripe for full release. Rather, it will hit Steam on February 23rd as an early-access game. This means we will play an unfinished product, with more features and content to be added in the following months until the full release. What does this mean for Sons Of The Forest dedicated servers? Will they be in the early access build?

In The Forest, the original game, these servers were added in update v0.59. They were added as a separate tool which you can find under “Tools” in your Steam library. This feature allows players to create multiplayer games that constantly run at their homes or through Server providers. Naturally, it is a very useful feature, especially for a larger group of friends who want to play co-op or PvP multiplayer. The developers haven’t yet confirmed or denied if Sons Of The Forest will have Dedicated Servers at the early access launch. Hence, once the early access kicks off, you must check it manually. To check it, do as follows:

  • Open your Steam library.
  • Open the drop-down menu under “Home” (the menu says “Games” by default).
  • Check “Tools”.
  • Type “Forest” in your library’s search bar.
  • Finally, check if it shows “Sons Of The Forest Dedicated Server”.

If it is not there, it means that the developer is yet to add this feature in Sons Of The Forest early access. We will endeavour to update the article once we have more information. For now, that’s all you need to know about Sons Of The Forest Dedicated Servers.
