Don't Starve Shipwrecked Early-Access Available Now

Klei Entertainment  has partnered with their friends at CAPY, creators of Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery, Super Time Force and Below; to bring fans of Don’t Starve the latest single-player expansion: Don’t Starve Shipwrecked!

In Don’t Starve Shipwrecked, Wilson finds himself stranded in a tropical archipelago. He must learn to survive all over again in this new environment filled with new biomes, seasons, and creatures.

Don’t let the tropical breeze lull you into a false sense of security – the world might be different, but it is still equal parts unforgiving and uncompromising. You will quickly find these islands are full to the brim with things that want to kill you.

Key Don’t Starve Shipwrecked Features:

  • Navigate the Open Ocean: Craft a boat and set sail for adventure!
  • Explore an Entirely New World: The entire world is different. Explore new biomes filled with new resources. Scavenge for new sources of food. Run for your life from a host of new creatures.
  • Brave New Seasons: A set of tropically inspired seasons will try their hardest to kill you.
  • Craft New Recipes: Build an array of new gadgets to help yourself survive these harsh islands.

Early-Access Details:

Shipwrecked is in Early-Access: It will be receiving more content, features and regular updates just like the original Don’t Starve and Reign of Giants.

Currently it only runs on Windows: Mac and Linux support is being worked on and will be coming in the Early-Access as soon as possible.

Shipwrecked is an Expansion to Don’t Starve: You will need the base copy of Don’t Starve to play the new content (similar to Reign of Giants expansion).

Integration with the base game will come later: Shipwrecked was originally being designed as a new mode of play separate from Don’t Starve. By popular community demand the developer now has plans to tie in / integrate elements with the classic Don’t Starve world. This functionality does not exist yet, but more updates on this as they truck along in early-access.
