Players Take to the Sea in Don't Starve's Shipwrecked Expansion
Time to go on a ship.
Don't Starve developer Klei announced the expansion today, which will take place partly on the ocean. This is the first time that players will be able to leave the game's landmass and journey onto the water. In the base game, the sea acts as a map boundary.
The expansion will also include new "characters, biomes, creatures, and seasonal effects." Klei hasn't said much else about Shipwrecked yet, although presumably it will involve some sort of disaster involving a ship, considering its name.
Capy Games, best known for Super Time Force and Superbrothers: Sword and Sorcery, is assisting in development on the game. Although the developer's exact role is unclear at this time, Klei told GameSpot that Capy will help on the design and development of the expansion. Capy is also currently working on Below for Xbox One and PC.
Don't Starve: Shipwrecked will be released on PC this fall. There's no word yet on a console version of Shipwrecked, but Don't Starve's last expansion, Reign of Giants, launched first on PC then came to consoles later. Recently, Don't Starve launched on Xbox One, marking the first time the game has been playable on an Xbox console. The game is also available on PC, Wii U, PlayStation 4, Vita, and iPad.
