Is Sons of the Forest crossplay?
As of the early access launch, Sons of the Forest does not have crossplay. The reason for this is it is only launching on Steam right now.
This being said, we can go off things we know about the previous game to come to some conclusions. Though The Forest launched into early access in 2014, we didn't see a PlayStation 4 launch until four years later in November 2018 when it was considered feature complete and ready for its 1.0 push.
With this launch, we did not see crossplay between PlayStation and PC at all. The games industry was in a very different place back then, however. We've since then an explosion of huge multiplayer games like Fortnite, Rocket League, Destiny, Overwatch, and Apex Legends prove how valuable crossplay can be when the big platforms decide to work together to allow it.
If Sons of the Forest does eventually come to console and other PC markets, we could imagine some form of crossplay being included. As it doesn't have a competitive scene, the issue of balancing things to accommodate both keyboard/mouse and controllers should be a non-issue. If we receive any more information on this, we'll update you right here.
