Upcoming Content Beta & Roadmap Update + Hotfix notes

Originally posted by Bigfoot on the official forums.

Hey folks!

With the Willow refresh newly launched, it’s time for the next phase: new game content! I’d like to update you all on our current plan.

Return of Them
Over the next several months, we’ll be releasing a series of game updates available to all players, under the single thematic focus entitled “Return of Them”.

Charlie’s machinations have come to a head as she turns her attention towards the skies - and the mysterious entity that awaits there. Our Survivors will be forced to contend with terrifying monstrosities beyond their comprehension, and yet, there may be a silver lining: their minds and horizons will be expanded under the sublime light of an ancient moon.

Here is an overview of what is available in our first update, Turn of Tides:

  • Added a new multiplayer-centric boat mechanic, where players can build and deck out a boat for multiple survivors to travel together on
  • Added a new boating craft menu
  • Added the Lunar Island
  • Added Enlightenment
  • Added 3 new Lunar Island biomes, along with new creatures, objects, and craftables
  • For this first update, we’ve focused primarily on building the fundamental tech and infrastructure for Return of Them. Please know that we expect this update to be a bit content light, and over the following months we will be adding more content to both the islands and the sea.

Turn of Tides is available to play in a beta branch today, and will officially launch on June 20th.

To access the beta see the instructions here.

In addition to new content, we are preparing for the arrival of the next new character. We’re happy to announce that Wormwood will soon enter the fray, fresh from his adventures in Don't Starve: Hamlet!

Wormwood is coming to Don’t Starve Together on June 6th, and will be priced similarly to Wortox. In addition, anyone who owns Don’t Starve: Hamlet will have access to Wormwood for free.

For the next character refresh, Warly will be sailing into the Constant from Shipwrecked on July 18th, and will be free to all players of Don’t Starve Together.

As with all character updates, Warly will be getting a design refresh and come with new abilities specific to Don’t Starve Together.

And that’s it! Onward and seaward!


What about console?
Since console does not have beta branch functionality, consoles will be getting Turn of Tides at the official launch in June.

When is my favorite character getting a refresh?
We will announce more characters refreshes as we get to them. If you have suggestions and feedback make sure to post them. We are watching and we do use that information to help us decide what we want to do next.

Will my existing worlds be affected if I switch to the beta branch?
No. Save data for the beta branch is kept separate from the live branch at: \\Documents\Klei\DoNotStarveTogetherReturnOfThemBeta

Will my existing worlds work in the beta branch if I copy them over?
Not at this time. For future updates, we will look into the possibility of retrofitting the new content into existing DST worlds, as we did for the A New Reign updates.

Willow Character Update and More!

Hey everyone!

Here we are with our second character update! We have a few things to share, from Willow’s character refresh, to new skin sales and Twitch campaign.

Here we go!

From the Ashes
Every character has their story, and with each refresh, we will be revealing a bit more of their past. See what memories Willow has to share with you in our latest short:

Willow Refresh
With the memories of her tragic past reignited, Willow has tapped into formidable powers for her childhood friend and protector, Bernie, as well as receiving full fire immunity and other bonuses.
  • Willow is now immune to fire damage.
  • Willow is now more easily frozen (e.g. by Ice Staves or Deerclops).
  • Willow no longer gets cold from low sanity.
  • Winter gear is slightly less effective at keeping Willow warm.
  • Willow takes more damage and loses sanity at freezing temperatures.
  • Willow takes longer to overheat and less damage when overheated.
  • Willow takes no burn damage while extinguishing smoldering fires and does it faster than others.
  • Adding fuel to fires is 50% more effective.
  • Bernie can now be equipped by Willow for sanity and warmth at the cost of durability.
  • Bernie grows big and will taunt and fight most hostile creatures when Willow is nearby and insane.
  • Bernie will still taunt Shadow Creatures when any other player is nearby and insane.
  • In addition, Willow still gains sanity near fire and can still cook with her Lighter.
Willow’s Guest of Honor, Triumphant, Survivor and Rose Skins can now be purchased and are all now available for purchase. All owners of these classic skins prior to today are now upgraded to an “Heirloom” rarity, with full unraveling value (that is, an Heirloom Elegant can be unraveled for 1350 spool).

Willow also has some new items that can be dropped, weaved or purchased.

The Ghastly Attic Chest can be purchased for $3.99 and contains Ashley, The Cursed Sterling Lighter and the Baleful Lace Parasol. The Willow Deluxe Wardrobe contains 5 of Willow's item sets, including the new "Forlorn Doll" set for $12.99

Drop Changes
We have removed icons, vignettes and profile backgrounds from the drop table. These items are still weaveable, however you will no longer receive them as drops. In addition, we have added about 100 color and slight variants of many existing common drops.

Originally we added the icons, vignettes and profile backgrounds so that we had more items to collect, but as many of these items were seasonal items, it gave the appearance that these were being dropped unintentionally.

New Twitch Campaign
We are getting ready for a new twitch campaign with an entirely new theme.

Check out this post for more details.

That's all we have for you this time. As always we will be watching your feedback and bug reports. Have fun out there!

For more details (and the full update notes) see the official forums at:

HOTFIX - 332125
  • Fixed random crashes that were happening on some servers.
  • Fixed some combat targeting bugs for BERNIE!
  • Fixed bug where Willow’s freeze resist changes after she dies and resurrects.
  • Fixed bug where Willow was not receiving the full sanity bonus from fires.
  • Fixed animation bug when Willow is electrocuted while using The Forlorn Doll skin.
HOTFIX - 332539
  • Fixed string names for Driving Gloves.
  • Fixed moonwalking Bernie.
  • There can only be one active BERNIE! per Willow player, but they can now activate near each other.
  • Willow’s fuel perk now applies to Night Lights.
  • Updated Willow’s perk strings in the character selection screen.
  • Using a Deconstruction Staff on a Gobbler, Varg, or Pig Shrine will now drop available offerings.
HOTFIX - 332910
  • Fixed bug where BERNIE!, Winona’s Catapult, and Houndius Shootius can end up targeting players who attacked with a Weather Pain or Fire Darts.
  • BERNIE! will no longer target any players that attack him on non-PvP servers.
  • BERNIE! will target non-Willow players that attack him on PvP servers.
