The holidays are a time for everyone to curl up by the fireplace, eat lots of holiday food, and be merry. Or it can be a time to try and avoid starving... together. Klei would like to focus on the latter, announcing that Don't Starve Together will hit Steam Early Access on Monday.
The standalone multiplayer expansion will release as the Don't Starve Together 'Frontier Pack,' which will include a copy of the core Don't Starve game, along with two copies of Don't Starve Together.
"As part of the Beta signup process, we've found that there are a lot of people who really want into the Beta, and even while giving out a hundreds of keys every day, it became clear to us that we needed a release valve for the demand," reads the issued press release. "Specifically, people were starting to buy keys in back channels, with varying success. That's why we're now providing the Frontier Pack: a clear, official channel for access."
In preparation for Monday, the final beta keys will be sent out to those that registered for the beta this weekend. Those diving into Don't Starve for the first time can pick up the Frontier Pack for $19.99. Those that already own a copy of Don't Starve can pick it up for $4.99.

Klei does so much more for their community then some of the top tier developers/publishers do for their own communities of late. Also something else to note: The next Don't Starve::Together DLC “Through the Ages,” will be free of charge to any owner of Don't Starve. Which is going to be simultaneously worked on as DS:T is going through it's development cycle.
