Shark surfing is an option in Sons of the Forest

Shark surfing is an option in Sons of the Forest

Fans of Sons of the Forest have reported a few bugs since the game's early access release, including this one that renders boats unnecessary.

There will undoubtedly be some bugs because Sons of the Forest has been released in early access, and one player has found a bug that lets them surf on the back of a shark. The Forest 2, an independent game by Endnight, has so far been one of the most popular horror game releases of 2023. This eerie survival game demonstrates that there is a lot of support for the smaller studios, even though it is competing with Alan Wake 2 and the remake of Resident Evil 4.

Sons of the Forest fans have taken advantage of exploits to speed through the game's ending while the developer is still working on it. These methods will probably eventually be patched out. Almost all early access games are notable for their long list of bugs and incomplete content, but that just means that early adopters will have a lot of fun with them.

For instance, a recent article from The Gamer mentions Reddit user Repelation who demonstrates that you don't need a boat to go surfing on Sons of the Forest's waters. The ability to ride a shark to travel a short distance across the ocean is shown in a brief clip from their playthrough. It has been noted, though, that players are unable to control the predatory fish, so riding one is more for fun than for purposefully discovering new places. Nevertheless, it does appear to be amusing, even though it might not last long.

Endnight Games has sent out a few hotfixes for Sons of the Forest since its release, aiming to iron out a few kinks. With the game still in development, it's understandable that the studio would try to push out as many updates as possible to address the more visible flaws. This means that, at least for the time being, shark surfing may be possible, but it may not last.

Sons of the Forest is regarded as a great survival horror game, whether due to people's fondness for Kelvin or the fact that there are some amusing exploits. It will be interesting to see what happens once the full release is available. Who knows, maybe Endnight will decide to keep the ability to ride the backs of potentially dangerous sea creatures.

Sons of the Forest is out now in early access for PC.
