Sons of the Forest Patch 6 Delay Announcement Hints at New Building System

According to a recent Steam announcement from Endnight games, the upcoming Sons of the Forest Patch will now be dropping “early tomorrow”, rather than tonight. As usual, Endnight were exceedingly pithy:

Hey Everyone,

Due to some last-minute issues with our new stone building system, tonight’s planned patch will release early tomorrow instead.

This announcement does, however, tease what’s coming in the next patch: a new stone building system, which is very likely part of the free-form construction option new to the series. Currently, building is very wood-centric, with bases relying on logs for things like walls and structures.

However, patch 06, which is now set to release tomorrow, appears to include a new stone-based building system. It will be great to have more variety in terms of how players can construct their base; presumably, stone will also be significantly sturdier than wood, making it easier to build a wall or building that can keep out the island’s bloodthirsty denizens.

Endnight have been steadily adding new features, so this comes as no real surprise — the only question now is how much other fun new stuff will be included in tomorrow’s patch! With any luck, patch 6 will also include additions to the game’s story, and a fun new tool or two.
