Indie open-world survival-horror game The Forest will finally be made available on PS4 in 2018.

Originally slated for release on PlayStation 4 in 2015, the Endnight Games-developed title will head to PS4 next year.

A new trailer shown during PlayStation Experience 2017 this weekend provided a look the cooperative elements of the game, but it can also be played solo.

Last we heard, multiplayer will also feature the added benefit of using the DualShock 4 controller as a walkie-talkie of sorts.

In The Forest, players will craft weapons from sticks and stones; chop down trees to make a base; and fight to stay alive.

The Forest is available now through Steam Early Access, and will release on PC next year as well.
