Sons of the Forest – Patch 08: Add Spice to Your Survival Game with Electrifying Fences, The ‘Hokey Pokey’ Trap, and More!
Hello, survivors! Have you caught wind of the most recent update from Sons of the Forest? The developers have truly outshone themselves with Patch 08, incorporating a host of new features and enhancements. They’ve seemingly sprinkled some video game enchantment into the mix, taking the game to the next level!
Electrify Your Defenses and Dance with Danger with the ‘Hokey Pokey’ Trap
Let’s delve into some of these exciting additions. First off, we now have the much-anticipated electric fences. You can now fortify your base with these electrified barricades that will deter relentless enemies. And if that’s not enough, there’s the all-new trap named ‘Hokey Pokey’. Its playful name belies its lethal nature, proving that it’s more dangerous than merely shaking it all about!
Unsettling Found Footage and Versatile Electric Wire Placement
But that’s not all! Patch 08 also unveils a chilling found footage video, ratcheting up the game’s ominous atmosphere. And if customization is your thing, you’ll relish the freeform electric wire placement option. This is your chance to play a high-stakes game of connect-the-dots with an electrifying payoff!
Enhanced Golf Carts and Handy GPS Locators
Remember those trusty golf carts? They’ve received a much-needed upgrade in this patch. Now equipped with headlights for safer night-time navigation and spacious enough to accommodate four players simultaneously, they’ve become the party bus of the post-apocalyptic world. And to assist in the chaos, you can now craft and 3D print GPS locators for efficient navigation. How innovative!
Trap Additions, Return of a Spooky Enemy, and Cryptic Vocal Announcements
That’s just the tip of the iceberg. The developers have brought in even more incredible features. There’s a new large trap that will make your foes wish they’d never crossed your path. A familiar, terrifying enemy makes a comeback, adding to the challenge in the endgame. And listen closely for new vocal announcements in select bunkers. They might save your skin!
Game Balancing and Performance Improvements
Not forgetting the need for balance, the frequency of enemy raids will now decrease depending on your kill count. However, don’t rest on your laurels, as they’ll ramp up if you slack off. On the defense front, walls have been strengthened to withstand quadruple damage, turning your base into a veritable fortress!
The gameplay performance hasn’t been neglected, either. Smooth transitions for boarding and exiting golf carts have been optimized, making your ride feel seamless. Animal behaviors, particularly moose and turtles, have also seen improvements. No more erratic wildlife to ruin your immersion!
Visual Improvements and Server Upgrades
There are plenty of visual enhancements to appreciate as well. Berries now deform along with their bushes, creating a more realistic and immersive environment. And cave explorers will appreciate the optimized moss and basalt rocks, a visual treat!
On the technical side, the game servers have undergone significant improvements. The server browser filtering has been enhanced, allowing for easy multiplayer matchmaking. They’ve also incorporated IP address search support, making connections with friends more streamlined. And the server now prioritizes refreshing your recently played dedicated servers, ensuring faster response times for an uninterrupted gaming experience!
Bug Squashes and Audio Upgrades
The developers understand that perfection is an ongoing journey. They’ve addressed several gameplay issues, such as the bug that allowed players to add items to the cooking pot during water purification and the Crossbow’s reload and idle animation glitch. They’ve also resolved the issue with storage LODs not activating at a distance. Your items will no longer magically vanish!
Last but certainly not least, the audio enhancements add an immersive layer to your gaming experience. From satisfying sound effects when installing electric wires and solar panels to the fine-tuned audio distances for rifles and flares, the improved audio is a treat for your senses. And the optimized cave entrance audio further enriches your exploration experience!
We Want to Hear from You!
That’s quite a rundown of the exciting updates in Patch 08. The developers are eager to hear your feedback and experiences with these changes. So, don’t hesitate to visit the Discussions section of the Community Hub and share your tales. They are especially interested in hearing your thoughts about the enemy balance changes.
