Sons of the Forest Sells 2 Million Units Within First 24 Hours Despite Early Access

The new survival experience achieves yet another milestone.

Story Highlights

  • Sons of the Forest is a new survival experience that sold over 2 million units in its first 24 hours. This was despite its nature as an early access title.
  • The game has previously attained other milestones as well. Being not only the most wish-listed game on Steam but also crossing a player count of 300,000.
  • Sons of the Forest currently has a very positive rating on Steam. As it is in early access, it may or may not see substantial changes as time progresses.

Regardless of being in early access, Sons of the Forest has sold over 2 million units within the first 24 hours of its launch. Endnight Games tweeted about the milestone on their official Twitter page. 

Sons of the Forest saw its launch on February 23rd, 2023. It is a sequel to the 2014 title The Forest which launched to positive reception. While the first game currently sits at over 350,000 reviews on Steam with an overwhelmingly positive rating, the sequel has also left a grand impression.

Being a title in early access, Sons of the Forest is susceptible to further change. Early access titles often temper a player’s expectations for the game. They realize that it may or may not have some prominent issues and they go into the experience with an open mind.

Despite the label of being in early access, Sons of the Forest keeps climbing up. Not only was it the most wish-listed game on Steam earlier this week, but it has also received a massive influx of players. Furthermore, the game has been positively received by the Twitch Community as many content creators have been streaming the game.
