It is our moral duty to look after our natural environment, which we considerately share with a whole host of electric wildlife, plant species, and cannibals. Wait, WHAT?!

You heard right. The sick and twisted minds at Endnight Games have been busy creating The Forest - a truly bone-chilling survival experience that tasks players with staying alive in a nightmarish landscape that's home to a bunch of maniacs with a taste for human flesh. You'll have to adapt to keep your skin, and strain your survival skills in order to see the light of dawn!

Sound like fun? Lucky for all you horror fans, the game is on its way to the Playstation 4 and will be out sometime this year! Co-founder of Endnight, Anna Terekhova, recently teased gamers about the terrifying ordeal they can expect:

Think back to your childhood days: playing outside, building a fort, skipping a stone on a lake… now add cannibals who want to tear you apart.

The game is said to be inspired by classic films like Cannibal Holocaust, and I can certainly see the gory influence coming through!

Here's a breakdown of the latest harrowing trailer!

Crash Landing

Just like in Lost, your traumatic journey begins with a devastating plane crash, leaving you stranded and alone...or perhaps not so alone.

Welcome to the Jungle!

These insidious beasts are rapid sprinters and nimble climbers. Escaping their violent clutches won't be walk in the park.

What the Heck is That?!

Whatever inhuman monstrosity is lurking at the end of that hallway, I don't want to know about it. The game looks like Deliverance meets The Descent - two of my favorite films!

The Hunted Becomes the Hunter

Luckily, you'll be able to build crafty traps to slow down the extremely agile and ferocious cannibals. Handy!

'Bring it Down Legolas!'

Taking a page out of Katniss Everdeen's survival book, a bow might just be the perfect weapon for slaying the relentless man-eating onslaught.

The trailer is available in all its gory glory below:

There's no announced release date for the PS4 version, but The Forest is currently available on Steam Greenlight HERE.

Download if you dare!
