Endnight Games have been working tirelessly to keep bringing updates to The Forest and the improvements are very noticeable. I haven’t played the game since title update 0.03 so I easily noticed some major improvements. Let us know in the comments if you’re still playing The Forest or if you’re waiting for the final release to jump back into the cannibal infested world.

Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook and Twitter  for the latest updates.
