The newest downloadable content for Klei Entertainment’s popular survival game, “Don’t Starve”, launched on Dec. 1, 2015. “Don’t Starve Shipwrecked” is available through Steam program for Windows. Mac and Linux are expected to follow. Players can purchase the expansion for under five dollars as part of Steam’s Early Access program.
Klei partnered up with Toronto’s Capybara Games to create the new world. Players now explore a tropical setting with new creatures like thieving monkeys and barking dogfish. For the first time, fans can build a raft and set sail in the open waters. If the raft isn’t sufficient, rowboats, sail boats and even cargo boats can be built with the right supplies. In addition, there are many new items ready to be crafted. A simple backpack is now unlocked at the start and a spyglass will reveal sections of the map yet to be explored.
Currently “Shipwrecked” is not playable alongside the previously released “Reign of Giants” DLC; however, Klei plans to combine the two worlds. As stated in an FAQ on their forum, more features will be added regularly promising to keep fans entertained.
“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.”
