Hello everyone, It’s time for another update on Don’t Starve Together!

In our previous Roadmap Update we announced that we were focused on 4 major things; dedicated servers, controller support, Mac/Linux support and Reign of Giants. As of recently we have achieved each of these goals. While we have some more work to do to polish these things, they are currently looking good and we want to update you all on what’s next.

We can now confirm that Don’t Starve owners will be gifted Don’t Starve Together on June 3, 2015.

For everyone who has participated in Early-Access so far, we are extremely appreciative. Your playtesting has been amazingly helpful to help us scale our systems. Now that Reign of Giants content is in, we need a bit more time to make some adjustments and iron out the bugs on this massive update, which will take a few more weeks.

Initially, we had wanted to wait until the caves content (more info below) was in before opening the floodgates, but we believe that the game’s in great shape and players have waited long enough. So come June 3rd, all Don’t Starve owners in Steam who don’t already own Don’t Starve Together will get DST for free; and we will continue with Early-Access in order to complete the caves, fix up any leftover bugs and make some more general improvements and other goodies as we have throughout early-access.

On June 3rd, new Don’t Starve owners will no longer get Don’t Starve Together, and there will no longer be a loyalty discount. In other words, if you haven’t bought Don’t Starve yet, now would be a good time to do so!

The main packages available on June 3rd will be the following:
  • Don’t Starve will continue to be $14.99
  • Don’t Starve Together will be $14.99, and include an extra giftable copy of Don’t Starve Together for your friend
  • Don’t Starve + Don’t Starve Together + a giftable copy of Don’t Starve Together will be $19.99
Now that we’ve covered that, let’s discuss a bit about the future content updates.

Upcoming Updates
In the short term, we are continuing to make lots of improvements to the game. Some things include:
  • More collaborative tools to help players work with each other (writeable signs, anyone?)
  • A streamlined UI to help players find the servers they’re looking for, and more easily manage their servers.
  • Moddable vote-kick options.
  • And more!
Through the Ages
A few months ago, we also discussed our plans for Through the Ages, and our expected timeline. Our priorities have been to get the game ready for Don’t Starve owners first, and then work on Through the Ages -- because this took longer than expected, we’ve had to push out the date for Through the Ages content. I don’t have concrete dates for this right now, but I can say that we’re actively working on the content and will become our focus after Early-Access ends. As we discussed, this expansion is free for all players!

Caves
Because caves is implemented as a separate world in Don’t Starve (it is separately generated), it is a relatively significant technical hurdle for Don’t Starve Together. We’re currently working on some ideas, and when we have more information to give you we’ll update you as we have more information.

F.A.Q.

After June 3, will new purchases of Don’t Starve get Don’t Starve Together for free?
No, we will only be gifting a free copy of Don’t Starve Together on June 3rd;This means that June 2nd, will be the last day to qualify to receive Don’t Starve Together by purchasing Don’t Starve. After this date, there will no longer be a loyalty discount to upgrade to Don’t Starve Together as well.

When is the end of Early-Access?
We do not have a current date for the end of Early-Access. When we have a solid date, we will make sure we announce it here.

Hey everyone,

I’ve pushed a small patch today, with the bulk of the changes to making the mod experiences more similar between Don’t Starve and Don’t Starve Together. While I was at it, I grabbed some of the fixes for a couple of the nastier bugs that we patched up for DST, and brought them back to DS.

Changes
  • Added a mod function to query the game's id. TheSim:GetGameID will return “DS” for Don’t Starve and RoG, and will return “DST” on Don’t Starve Together. This can be used to allow modders to have a single code base for mods that they distribute to the DS and DST Workshops. DST will be getting a new optional variable in their modinfo file named api_version_dst, which will allow the same mod info file to be used in both Workshops.
  • Enabled /LARGEADDRESSAWARE for Windows builds to help address memory issues with large mods.
  • The Mods screen now does a version check before downloading Workshop mods and doesn’t download them if they haven’t been updated. This functionality was brought over from DST, and will help users on slow internet connections who are subscribed to numerous mods..
Bug Fixes
  • The crock-pot-insta-rot issue fixes that were implemented in DST have been brought over to DS. This affects both the stewer component and dryer component.
  • Herd size bugs. Bugs that caused beefalo and rock lobster herds to grow out of control were addressed in DST and those fixes have been brought over to DS.

Don’t Starve Together [official site] takes the elements of 2D survival game Don’t Starve and rebuilds them for co-operative purposes. The game has been in Early Access since late last year, and its most recent free update has just added all the extra monsters, items and features from the game’s original expansion, Reign of Giants.

Hey everybody.

While we don't normally post DST related announcements here, Seth posted a status update on the official forums that I thought many of you would want to know about. It's a huge post, so I am posting a brief rundown in the Steam forums. But if you would like to read the full post (hint, hint), head over on the official forums.

The post includes information on 3 main topics.
  1. Development/roadmap updates. We’ve crossed off most of the items on the January Roadmap, but there’s a bit left to do and more beyond that. (Including some words about recent Willow changes)
  2. Why we’re adding Reign of Giants this way (“this way” being “all at once”) and how it’ll be available to DST players.
  3. PAX East! It’s in a week and a half! We’ve been getting ready: a bit about what we’ve put together and will be showing.

Head on over to the Steam forums to read the brief rundown, or the official forums to read the whole thing.

Tim told me before we started that he had played a lot of Don't Starve, but the reality of that didn't hit me until we got into the game and he became a well-oiled, survival machine. Don't Starve Together is a standalone, multiplayer version of the original that just recently entered Steam early access. It will be made free to those who currently own the original when it leaves early access, but Tim and I couldn't wait to get our hands on it. While it seems like not much has changed yet, sharing survival with another person can be a very different experience. Watch the video above to see me and Tim fight for our lives.
