The latest Don’t Starve [official site] expansion, Shipwrecked, will crash headlong into Steam Early Access in December. If you are perhaps fond of not starving and are looking forward to not starving again maybe while drinking fruity cocktails on a desert island then you’d better mark your calendar for December 1st.

Announced back in August, the next major Don't Starve expansion will launch into Early Access on December 1. Dubbed Shipwrecked, the Early Access period will be fully playable, with "new seasons, creatures, biomes". New ways to die are also promised, which is just as well.

"As always, during early access we will be releasing regular updates containing new content as well as tweaks and bug fixes based on your input," a spokesperson for publisher Klei wrote on the game's forums. As the name suggests, Shipwrecked will have you spending a lot of time in boats, and hopefully not too much time drowning in the water outside of boats.

Don't Starve has seen a number of substantial additions since its initial release in 2013. The biggest one was Don't Starve Together, which is a multiplayer co-op version of the main game. Oh, and the Reign of Giants DLC was pretty decent too.

No word as yet on when the expansion will finish up in Early Access, and studio Capy Games is still working on world migration, which won't be available on December 1.

I know you all have been waiting for information on shipwrecked so I’ll get right to the point -
Don’t Starve: Shipwrecked will launch into Steam’s Early Access program on December 1st.

Phew. Ok, now that we’ve got that out of the way, here are some more words!

As with Don’t Starve and Reign of Giants, we’re going to be using early access up until the full release of Shipwrecked. Your feedback and suggestions were invaluable during the development of past Don’t Starve content and frankly, we’d be fools to not involve you again when it comes to the development of Shipwrecked.

The early access version of the game is fully playable, but there is still some work to be done. The initial version contains new seasons, creatures, biomes, and many other exciting ways to die. As always, during early access we will be releasing regular updates containing new content as well as tweaks and bug fixes based on your input. Remember, we’re listening, so join our forums and share your thoughts!


What platforms is early access available on?
Early access is available on Windows through Steam.

I use Mac/ Linux. Can I participate in early access?
Mac & Linux will not be supported for the initial December 1st launch.

I don’t use Steam. Can I still play during the early access period?
No. However, the final release of the game will be available for the standalone client.

Is world migration (traveling between worlds) working yet?
No. We’re still working on this - it will be done before the final release.

What is Don’t Starve: Shipwrecked?
Shipwrecked is an expansion for Don’t Starve. Wilson finds himself stranded in a tropical archipelago and must struggle to survive in this new world! Shipwrecked is being developed by CAPY and Klei Entertainment.

Do I need Reign of Giants?
No. Shipwrecked is compatible with and without Reign of Giants.

Will Shipwrecked work with DST?
An awesome idea, but right now Shipwrecked is single player only.

Is Shipwrecked coming to consoles/ mobile?
We’d love to, but right now we’re focused on making the PC version as good as it can be.

Cool image! Can I get a version without the logos?

If you haven’t been paying attention to Klei Entertainment’s creations for the past few years, you’re missing out on some of the best games in the world. This year’s Invisible, Inc. [official site], recently expanded in fine style, might be the best turn-based game I’ve discovered since I joined the Chess Club all those years ago, and Mark of the Ninja is a completely different but almost equally brilliant rewrite of the stealth genre. All of the studio’s games are free to play on Steam this weekend, starting right now>, with discounts should you wish to buy them after having a taste.

Isn’t it nice when two great developers come together to brutally murder you? Two groups whose work you admire and appreciate sit down with a bottle of bros and a notepad and ask themselves “How can we really screw you?” Boats, is the answer.

Don’t Starve [official site] developers Klei Entertainment have teamed up with Capy, the gang behind Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP and Super Time Force, for the next expansion to their sandbox survive ‘em up. It’s named Shipwrecked, and you can guess how that works out.
