How to tame Virginia in Sons of the Forest

Your friendly neighborhood mutant!

Sons of the Forest captures the original feeling of survival that The Forest gave us, but it also brings some new features and upgrades to the table, taking it a step further. One of the latest additions is a companion system, where an NPC character can follow you and help you in your activities and combat. Players can occasionally notice a strange woman with extra appendages approaching you and your compound. Her name is Virginia, and yes, she's a mutant you can befriend!
