Description
As the lone survivor of a passenger jet crash, you find yourself in a mysterious forest battling to stay alive against a society of cannibalistic mutants.

Build, explore, survive in this terrifying first person survival horror simulator.

In The Forest, the player must survive on a forested peninsula after a plane crash, after which a "cannibal" is seen taking the player's son away. The player survives by creating shelter, weapons, and other survival tools. Inhabiting the island, along with various woodland creatures, are a tribe of nocturnal, cannibalistic mutants who dwell in villages on the surface and in deep caves beneath the peninsula. While they are not necessarily always hostile to the player, their usual behavior is aggressive, especially during the night.

Key features
  • Enter a living, breathing world, where every tree and plant can be chopped down. Below ground explore a vast network of caves and underground lakes.
  • Chop down trees to build a camp, or start a fire to keep warm. Scavenge food to keep yourself from starving.
  • Build a small shelter or a large ocean side fortress. Lay traps and defences to keep a safe perimeter.
  • Explore and build during the day. Defend your base at night. Craft weapons and tools. Bunker down during the evening or bring the fight directly to the enemy.
  • Defend yourself against a clan of genetic mutant enemies that have beliefs, families, morals and that appear almost human.
  • Use stealth to evade enemies, or engage them directly with crude weapons built from sticks and stones.

More Details
  • 1 player
  • Network Players 2-4 - Full game requires PlayStation®Plus membership to access online multiplayer
  • 4GB minimum save size
  • DUALSHOCK®4 Vibration Function
  • HD Video Output 720p,1080p

Good deal bought it when it came out. The release price of £13.99 was also very reasonable!

Looks nice and runs good. No complaints. Gets regular updates and bug fixes too.

Meh, you win some, you lose some and I do alright with sales generally. Plus as mentioned £14 was reaosnable from the get go and the game gets great reviews so I am sure it will be worth it
Good price, I paid £14 3 weeks ago on PSN. Its fun but definitely better with friends, gets a bit boring solo especially when you are building a palace and have to chop down trees and lug lumber allover the place. Also if you want an end to your game, this isn't for you. It does have some kind of ending (can be done in a few hours I believe) but its pretty much just survival and building. Heat from me.
A prime example of a game that is updated regularly and the developers care.

Had a great experience exploring this game with a friend, many laughs too. Especially with the chainsaw.

strange as i hears the opposite from others and reviews as they say playing with others takes away the tension etc of playing solo

Great game and well worth the price. Runs great on a normal PS4 to answer the question. Only played solo so not sure about performance in multiplayer. These are the developers that people should support as they care about their game and it's a steal at this price.

Exactly, apart Soma on release day everything I buy digitally has been in a sale and I've had some insane deals with PSN credit, you simply can't win everytime
