The Forest has been made available on Steam for those willing to have early access to the Alpha version of the game. There are obviously quite a good number of bugs and glitches but it should give you an idea as to what to expect anyway. You play the role of a man whose plane has just crashed and whose kid (?) has been kidnapped by the locals. The odd thing is that before the crash, he and the child were the only passengers in the plane, which seems to indicate there's some kind of mystery going on. Once on the island, he will have to organize himself in order to survive the deadly conditions, which means feed himself, stay dry and avoid the locals at all costs. Note: The frame drops you can see are due to the capture.
@Tiz: Agree. People want to punish others well implement methods because of EA stupidity. (33 minutes ago)
EA lost their minds and went full greed. $60 buy-in with P2W microtransactions, and an unholy grind? I'm not surprised by the pushback but it's impossible to tar everything with the same brush. (38 minutes ago)
If you don't have the time but want the stuff, then you pay. If you do have the time and want the stuff, then you grind. (41 minutes ago)
I think this whole thing is being blown out of proportion. EA over-stepped with BF2, but the method to unlocking stuff in most games is fine based on a time vs money scenario. (42 minutes ago)
This is a stupid move by ESA. They are now distancing themselves more and more from their customers. They are spitting in their faces. Apparently the signal to EA wasn't clear enough. (1 Hour ago)
And now Australia sees lootboxes as gambling. You know who doesn't? ESA, the entertainment software association which is EA, Activision, Ubisoft, Sony, Nintendo, MS... (1 Hour ago)
@crookedmind: what? How did you come to that conclusion? (3 Hours ago)
