Assuming you own the original PC game
With more people comes more mouths to feed, but I think I’ll take that responsibility over crushing loneliness in Don’t Starve. A paid, work-in-progress version of the standalone multiplayer expansion, Don’t Starve Together, has been available for a while now. It’s not finished yet — and, as such, is still listed on Steam Early Access — but Klei is ready to put it in front of a wider audience.
Folks who bought Don’t Starve before today, June 3, were given Don’t Starve Together for free. Check your Steam library! If you missed out, going forward, you have several purchasing options:
- Don’t Starve is $14.99
- Don’t Starve Together is $14.99, and includes an extra giftable copy of Don’t Starve Together
- Don’t Starve + Don’t Starve Together + a giftable copy of Don’t Starve Together is $19.99
- Wait for a sale
“Since our Early Access launch in December, we’ve added new creatures, integrated the Reign of Giants DLC for free, created new games modes, added significant improvements to modding, and in general made over 50 significant updates to the game,” said Klei. Looking ahead, the studio still needs to implement Caves in DST, which is proving to be “a huge technical challenge.”
I never got around to trying Reign of Giants, so this seems like a good excuse to do so.
