The horror game Sons of the Forest has surpassed the role-playing game Starfield, developed by Bethesda Game Studios, as Steam’s most wanted game. Although Bethesda hasn’t announced a release date for Starfield, it’s easy to understand why it would be one of the most anticipated video game releases of 2023. To suggest that its eclipse by a lesser indie horror game is shocking would be an understatement. Maybe it shouldn’t come as such a shock, though, given Steam’s status as a hub for virally popular indie games.
For a good reason, Starfield is the most wanted game on Steam. Bethesda Game Studios is one of the most prominent video game companies due to the success of the Fallout and Elder Scrolls series. Starfield’s Steam wishlist is only anticipated to rise exponentially. That’s because Bethesda Softworks has decided to wait until Starfield is complete before releasing it to the public.
However, due to the game’s uncertain release schedule, other highly anticipated Steam releases have a chance to surpass Starfield on fans’ wish lists. Some may be startled to learn that Sons of the Forest, a game they have never heard of, has surpassed Starfield in popularity. In spite of this, none can deny the enthusiasm for the terrifying survival game.

Several factors have contributed to Sons of Forest’s meteoric rise to the top of Steam’s most-wished-for list. For starters, Sons of the Forest is a continuation of the critically acclaimed survival horror game The Forest. More than 390,000 people have reviewed the game on Steam, with a positive average rating of 85%. Fans of Endnight Games’ The Forest are eager to play it again to see the studio’s updates.
The impending release of Sons of the Forest, a survival horror game, is likely another factor in the game’s meteoric rise-up wish lists. It was revealed at the beginning of February that Sons of the Forest would be available for Early Access. On February 23, players will be able to give Sons of the Forest a try.
Sons of the Forest’s Early Access version will have both single-player and multiplayer modes for a maximum of eight players. There will be a terrifying narrative, a robust crafting system, the ability to construct, a cavernous underworld to explore, variable weather, and hordes of hostile creatures. If you’re in need of a game to tide you over until Starfield’s release later this year, consider picking up Sons of the Forest.
