Does not require having played The Forest
Sons of the Forest is a sequel. The original game, The Forest, also hit quite hard in the community and has its own plot.

It’s a nasty game

That is, it will always be the same map and the points of interest they will be in the same locations. If you want, you have at your disposal an interactive map that you can use to plan your trips.
It has multiplayer mode
Like so many other survival games, is it possible to play online with friends. Although this requires better resource management as it is possible to make games of up to 8 players simultaneous, logically makes it easier to face the dangerous cannibalistic mutants.
You can recruit NPCs
One of the main differences with respect to the first installment is that there are two recruitable NPCs. If they die they will disappear for the whole game, so you have to be careful with them.
It is possible that more will be added in the future, as development progresses until the exit of the phase early access. You can find that information as part of our game guide.
