If you haven’t yet experienced the wonderful world of Don’t Starve, then you may just be interested to hear that 505 Games and Klei Entertainment have announced the ultimate survival package – the Don’t Starve Mega Pack.
Arriving on Xbox One and PS4 in Q2 2017, the Mega Pack brings together the original Don’t Starve base game, the Don’t Starve Together multiplayer add-on and the game’s expansions. It’ll come priced at 24.99, giving those who wish to check out everything there is a fairly hefty 25% discount over individual purchases. Additionally, those over in PS4-land will be able to get a couple of dynamic themes – the Shipwrecked theme and Autumn theme – to enjoy.
But for those of us on Xbox One, we’ll find the following content all included when The Don’t Starve Mega Pack hits home:
- Don’t Starve Together – A standalone multiplayer expansion to Don’t Starve where players must team up with their friends to gather resources and craft survival items, or strike out against their own, to last the nights.
- Reign of Giants – An expansion pack that brings new characters, environments and beasts to the worlds of Don’t Starve and Don’t Starve Together! Reign of Giants brings new mysteries, scientific innovations, resources and massive creatures of the wilderness to either help you or kill Wilson and his companions;
- Shipwrecked — A brand new single player story expansion where players will find themselves stranded on a tropical archipelago and must learn to survive all over again with new biomes, seasons, creatures, resources and recipes to discover, craft and survive against.
- Console survivalists will get exclusive features such as split-screen local co-op where they can grab a controller with a friend and explore the depths of the wild together without connecting online.
“Watching Don’t Starve evolve from being the first ever Early Access title on Steam to what it is today, has been an exhilarating journey. It’s amazing to now have the original game and expansions packaged together in one awesome Mega Pack for consoles,” said Peter Andrews, from the Don’t Starve development team.
Don’t Starve is an uncompromising wilderness survival game where players take on the role of Wilson – a Gentleman Scientist who is trapped in a mysterious world by a demon – and must learn to exploit their environment and its inhabitants in order to return home. Players also contend against randomly generated worlds filled with dark and whimsical visuals and a full range of environmental hazards that only a full year of seasons can bring. To survive, players must explore the world to discover its’ mysteries, gather a variety of resources and craft items and structures that match their survival style – all without instructions, help or hand-holding.
Of course, we’ll bring you more as and when we have it.
