Sons of the Forest Hotfix 2 Adds Hotkeys, Addresses Other Controls

Sons of the Forest Hotfix 2 is available for download for Early Access players. Here are the (small) patch notes.

Sons of the Forest Hotfix 2 is live now for those playing the survival-horror game in Early Access on PC. It’s a tad bit larger than the first Hotfix that was released the day after the game’s launch addressing a few more issues revolving around hotkeys and controls. It’s also a larger download size, coming in at 344.4MB.

The patch notes detail the addition of hotkeys and that the team at Endnight Games has tweaked the prompts for skipping cutscenes and exiting the Guide Book, among a few other things. 

Here is a small hotfix for a few issues that have come up over the weekend.

  • Added hotkey system for keyboard/mouse. Assign hotkeys in inventory by pressing numerical keys 0 through 9 on hovered items in inventor.
  • Improved cutscene skip prompt; will now appear briefly at start or show when common skip keys are pressed (esc, space, etc.)
  • Added heavy attack tutorial to loading hint
  • ‘Back’ (default Esc) will close Tutorial book, Construction book and Grab bag interactions

Players have been clamoring for the addition of a Hotkey system in the game, and to be frank, it’s a great quality-of-life addition that will go a long way. It’s also good to see another option added for closing the Guide Book because “B” wasn’t it. To learn how to assign quick-select bindings, we’ve got a quick Hotkey explainer here to help.

Sons of the Forest reached a peak of more than 400,000 players shortly after release, and it’s currently sitting just above Hogwarts Legacy as #4 on the Top Games by Concurrent Players on Steam Charts. Since the game is currently in Steam Early Access, there are bound to be plenty more patches and Hotfixes to come, like the most recent that eliminates accidental cannibalism. Stay tuned for more on GameSkinny.
