Don't Starve: Shipwrecked will be marooned on Steam Early Access in December

It's time to survive an entirely different environment when Don't Starve: Shipwrecked hits Steam Early Access to kick off the final month of the year.


As if surviving in the wilderness wasn't enough, now it's time to survive the dangers of a deserted island. And by "deserted," of course, I mean "full of dangerous creatures that want to kill you." That's the premise of Don't Starve: Shipwrecked, an expansion to Klei's survival game that is being developed in conjunction with Below/Super Time Force developers Capybara Games, which is just about ready to set sail on Steam Early Access.

"The early access version of the game is fully playable, but there is still some work to be done. The initial version contains new seasons, creatures, biomes, and many other exciting ways to die," states the Klei website. (via Rock Paper Shotgun) "As always, during early access we will be releasing regular updates containing new content as well as tweaks and bug fixes based on your input."

There are still a few items that Klei will be working on over the course of the early access period. That includes world migration and potential (though unconfirmed) co-op play. It'll also be solely available on Steam, with standalone client, Mac, and Linux support coming later. Console versions will likewise receive this expansion later.

Don't Starve: Shipwrecked will hit Steam Early Access on December 1.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
