Fixing Sons of The Forest High Brightness Issue

Like many other players, if you are also experiencing a high brightness or too shiny issue in Sons of The Forest, then try the following troubleshooting steps.

1. Adjust the In-Game Settings

The very first and classic solution we recommend is to adjust the in-game settings in which you need to lower the brightness. To do this: Launch the game >> Options >> Video >> Adjust the brightness slider to a lower value. Most probably, the issue will get fixed after doing this method. If not, try the next workaround.

2. Updating Graphics Drivers

The next method we recommend is to update your graphics driver. Outdated drivers can cause all sorts of issues including brightness problems. Here is how you can update it to the latest version.

– Go to Device Manager by pressing Win + X keys

– Select your graphics card and right-click on it

– From the drop-down menu, select “Update driver”

– Follow the on-screen instructions and complete the process

– Once done, relaunch the game and you are good to go

3. Adjust Display Settings on Your Device

It is also possible that the brightness and contrast on your monitor may be too high which can cause the game to appear overlay shiny or too bright. You can do it on your PC by right-clicking on your desktop and then selecting “Display settings”. If you are playing the game on your console, then check the console’s display settings.

4. Disabling HDR

If you’ve HDR enabled, try disabling it and check if that makes any difference. Sometimes, High Dynamic Range (HDR) can cause problems with contrast and brightness levels in games. For this: Go to your display settings and check for the option to turn off HDR.

5. Make Sure to Update the Game

Sometimes, an outdated game can also cause excessive brightness issues and devs often release patches to fix bugs and issues like the current one. So make sure to get it updated to the latest version.  

6. Repair the Game Files

Some missing or corrupted game files can also cause brightness issues in Sons of The Forest. So, repairing the game files can resolve the issue. To do this: Go to Steam Library >> Right-click on the game >> Properties >> Local Files >> Verify the integrity of game files. Once the scanning is done, relaunch the game.

If none of these solutions work, you might want to contact the support team of Sons of The Forest for further assistance.
