How can I revive Kelvin or Virginia in Sons of the Forest?

Kelvin and Virginia are without a doubt the absolute heroes in Sons of the Forest. Everyone loves them for their support and clumsiness. But what happens if one of them dies due to an attack, a bug in the game or some other situation?

Nobody wants to start a new savegame, but fortunately you don’t have to. There’s a trick you can use to bring them both back after they die.

Reviving Kelvin

In order for the revival to work, you must edit your save file (i.e. your savegame) with your Windows text editor.

Important We strongly recommend that you always make a backup copy of your save files BEFORE you make any changes to them.

Proceed as follows:

  • First search for your save files under the following path: C:\Users\YourName\AppData\LocalLow\Endnight\SonsOfTheForest\Saves
  • As just described, make a copy of it
  • Now open the file with your text editor:
  • Now search for the entry in the file:
  • If it really says “true”, then change it to “false” so that it looks like this:
  • Save your changes to the file and close it
  • Now search for the file and open it (using the text editor):
  • Search for the entry in this file:
  • Right behind it you should find the following:
  • \”State\”:6
  • Change the 6 to a 2 here so that it looks like this:
  • A little further down, Kelvin’s health points are displayed, which you must also adjust, as they will initially be displayed there:
  • So change this to:
  • Save your changes

And that’s all there is to it. If you boot the game now and load your savegame, Kelvin should be near you again as usual.

Reviving Virginia

Essentially, the procedure is identical to Kelvin’s steps. You just have to look for other entries when searching through the files. Below we compare the entries you need to search for for both characters. All other steps are identical.



So go through the above steps again for the trigger-happy Virginia, but look for the entries for Virginia instead.
