Sons of the Forest is a huge hit on Steam. The popularity of the game may have caused problems with Valve’s servers
On February 23, the game debuted in early access on Steam Sons of the Forest. It is a combination of survival and horror in the open world, and at the same time a continuation of the warmly received The Forest from 2018. In the production, players find themselves on a desolate island in search of a missing billionaire and start a brutal fight for survival in extremely dangerous and unfavorable circumstances. This title quickly gained immense popularity and at its peak was played by over 440,000 people at the same time. The interest in it was so great that around its premiere, Steam servers went down for some time, and users received an error message.
Sales are also a good indicator of a game’s popularity Sons of the Forest. On the Twitter profile of the creators from Endnight Games, it was announced that their latest work has sold over 2 million copies in just 24 hours since its release.
