Sons of the Forest: Does it Have VR?

Sons of the Forest is already freaking players out, but now many are wondering if they can get up close and personal with the terrifying mutants in VR.

Sons of the Forest is the sequel to Endnight Games’ The Forest, which sees players contend with nature and horrific monsters. While the game is currently only on PC, many want to see it move to other platforms, namely VR. Getting up close and personal with the deadly mutants doesn’t sound like an ideal way to spend an afternoon to some, but for Sons of the Forest fans, there couldn’t be a greater experience. Below, we explain whether Sons of the Forest supports VR.

Does Sons of the Forest Have VR Support?

Sons of the Forest currently does not have VR support. You cannot currently play the game in VR at all. The confirmation comes from the game’s official Steam page, where the option for VR functionality is not listed. This is not the first time VR was unavailable in the series, as its predecessor, The Forest, did not get VR feature support until after its release. As VR is still growing in popularity, there is still the possibility that Sons of the Forest will feature support for virtual reality.

Will Sons of the Forest Receive VR Support?

Yes, Sons of the Forest will most likely receive VR support as the game gets more updates in the future. The original game received VR functionality in May 2018, just one month after it launched its full 1.0 version. As Endnight Games just released the 1.0 version of the game, it will likely receive support for VR headsets soon. However, as the developer has announced nothing official about it, the best we can do is wait to hear what future updates are in store for the game.
