Horror awaits in open-world game The Forest

Been a while since a trailer has made me that uneasy

With this trailer, The Forest has gone from one of a handful of survival horror titles I’m anticipating to become my most-wanted. Horror in a relatively open world may sound like a challenge to pull off, but if the video is any indication, Endnight Games Limited has it figured out.

The game is out later this year on PC and it’ll support Oculus Rift, though I can only imagine how tense that’d be. Forget virtual reality — obscuring your vision and hearing from what’s going on in the real world would be unsettling in and of itself.

As a fan of The Descent, I can’t not love the promise of this.
