If you have been wondering whether or not Sons of the Forest is on Xbox Game Pass, then you're in the right place. Much like its predecessor, The Forest, Sons of the Forest (which currently has a 'Very Positive' rating on Steam) focuses on survival and crafting out on an island inhabited by menacing cannibals. 

What's more, Sons of the Forest has multiplayer co-op features, allowing you to explore the horror island with a friend as you both battle to survive the night.

While the sequel went into early access on February 23, 2023, if you're an Xbox Game Pass subscriber, you may be wondering whether it's available on (or has plans to come to) the service. So, keep reading for what you want to know.

As of writing, Sons of the Forest is only available to play on Steam in early access. As the name suggests, this provides players with early access to a game that is yet to be completed.

Instead of pushing the game release further back again, Endnight Games have instead opted to launch the game in this manner, which typically allows for regular updates until the game reaches completion.

As of writing, developer Endnight Games has not discussed plans to move the game onto any other platform other than PC via Steam.

It is likely that developers will look to complete the game and get it out of Early Access before any major plans to port it onto other platforms. This follows the same pattern as its predecessor The Forest, which launched on Early Access in 2018 and moved onto PS4 once it had finished.

However, The Forest never made it to Xbox or Xbox Game Pass once it was released onto consoles, but it very well could change for the sequel. We will be sure to keep this updated as we learn more. 

So that's everything there currently is to know about whether Sons of The Forest will come to Xbox Game Pass. While you're here, check out our guide to getting the pistol and all pistol attachments to help you survive longer on the island.
