Sons of the Forest is a new hardcore survival game that gets updates and patches regularly. The updates might sometimes mess up the saved games files, thus would force you to start a new game. However some players do not like the idea of a fresh start after a strenuous and tiring work they have put into the constructed bases, zipline routes, crafts and exploration.
