Klei announces Don't Starve: Hamlet and Don't Starve Together events


New single-player DLC about the Pigmen

The harsh world of Don’t Starve is calling us back once more. Klei Entertainment’s next excursion is Hamlet, single-player DLC in which Wilson “discovers a lost town of aristocratic Pigmen.”

A lovely little animation, as always. Don’t Starve: Hamlet will have “pig shops, houses, new items, biomes and more,” and there’s even treasure to be found by those who venture out into the ruins.

Klei is also adding to Don’t Starve: Shipwrecked with a new content update, playable now in beta.

Don’t Starve Together players also have something to look forward to this year. The studio is creating a series of events, the first of which is a six-person co-op challenge against the Grand Forge Boarrior.

DST events are limited-time play modes that create a new way to play with the cast of Don’t Starve. They serve as a way to mix up the experience, allowing us to try crazy new things without breaking the core game. Events are free for everyone who owns DST to play and will be coming in November.”

Folks who take part in these events can earn new character skins (and a trader will set up shop in town to take duplicates off your hands, enabling you to scrap and craft new event items). “This is just the first of many experiments we intend to run,” notes Klei, “and we would love your feedback! We have many ideas for events, and we would love to know what you would like to see.”
