Sons of the Forest seems to be growing into a great hit, with its Early Access grabbing the attention of hundreds of thousands of players worldwide. It also seems that it’s a worthy successor of the critically acclaimed “The Forest” title.

Naturally, the unwritten rule for single player PC games is that if it exists, it must be modded to hell and back. And of course, another meme law is that the longer the game exists, the odds that a CJ from GTA: San Andreas mod will be made is moving closer to 100%. I mean if they added CJ into Stray, what’s stopping them to bring him into SotF?

In this article, Prima Games will tell you how to install and use mods in Sons of the Forest and where to find them in the first place.
