Indie developer Endnight Games has today announced that the first major patch for their Steam Early Access title The Forest is now available, bringing a number of new features to the spooky sandbox game including frightening water-based shark creatures.
Other additions to the game vary from multiple performance and bug fixes through to new features and tweaks like birds being dispersed with fire and the rather overpowered turtle's reduced in health. Read up on the full patch notes through the Steam Discussion page
The Forest launched late last month in alpha form, meaning it is barebones and full of typical development bugs, however Endnight Games are planning on adding quite a chunk of content in the future. This will include Oculus Rift support to help immerse you in the scary atmosphere, more territory to cover, a female character, co-op multiplayer and a peaceful mode free of the island's mutated cannibals.
