PS4 and Xbox One's Don't Starve Getting DLC Where You Explore the Sea

Shipwrecked will bring boats, islands, and more to Don't Starve on consoles.

19 Comments

Don't Starve fans on consoles have something to look forward to as the Shipwrecked expansion will arrive on the PS4 and Xbox One this spring. It adds boats, traversable oceans, tropical islands, and more to the survival game.

Capybara Games lead writer and designer Dan Vader posted about the DLC coming to PS4 on the PlayStation Blog. It was later confirmed on Twitter that it would also make its way to Xbox One.

No Caption Provided

The game and its expansions are normally developed by Klei Entertainment, but Shipwrecked was created by Capybara. The new expansion adds new biomes, creatures, bosses, and weapons. It also makes it possible for players to leave the starting landmass via boat, as the ocean was previously used as an end to the map.

Don't Starve: Shipwrecked is available right now on Steam for Windows, Mac, and Linux users. The expansion costs $4.99.

The console versions were not given release dates. GameSpot will keep you up to date on when the Don't Starve expansion hits consoles.

The standalone multiplayer expansion, Don't Starve Together, is currently on Steam in Early Access. It's been revealed for PS4, but there's currently no word on the cooperative game heading to Xbox One.

The game is actually decent fun, but the bugs are CRIPPLING... I just want to use the Custom Preset features without the game crashing with a screenload of LUA Errors like some kind of Early Access project; kthx. (I.e., I'd be playing it on Steam-EA if I wanted that kind of behavior).

I enjoyed Don't Starve Together. Playing with friends with LAN is the best.

@hystavito: Local Area Network. Usually refers to playing with people within the same house, or closed off network which normally means no lag.

Idk. I tried getting into this game, but by the time winter comes my sanity is crumbling. IRL and in the game.

If there were just checkpoints so you don't have to start over from scratch.

@Boddicker: I know it's not the same as proper checkpoints, but the Touch Stones give you some ability to not simply start over from scratch.

@orbit79: Yeah, I forgot about those. Oh well, I doubt I'll ever play this game again. Loved the artstyle though.

Already played it on PC. Unfortunately it's feels way more like a re-skin of the base game rather than a whole new experience. It has some cool idea like sailing from island to island, but so much of it felt too similar to me.

I bought some Don't Starve DLC bundle thing on PS4 a while back. I was under the impression it included all DLC, so I hope I get this DLC for free as well.

@milk: It wasn't a season pass. It was just a bundle that included the Reign of Giants DLC that saved you like 2 bucks. Relax, it'll only be $5.
