Don't Starve: Shipwrecked Coming to Early Access

By Rebecca Smith, 11 months ago
"Don’t Starve: Shipwrecked", the next expansion for Don't Starve, will enter Early Access on December 1st.


This version of the expansion will include new seasons, creatures, biomes and "many other exciting ways to die". Developer Klei Entertainment will be releasing regular updates while the expansion is in Early Access that will include bug fixes and gameplay improvements that will be based on player feedback during this time. For now, I'll just leave you with the official FAQ.

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.
