Changes to existing content

Gift Icon Content from other DLCs

Since Hamlet is the third DLC released for Don't Starve, it relies on several mechanics that were originally featured in the Reign of Giants and Don't Starve: Shipwrecked DLCs. Therefore these mechanics (and items/structures that are needed to deal with them) had to be included in Hamlet and are now also available to players who do not actually own Reign of Giants or Shipwrecked.

Hamlet Character Update Promo

Rev. 307715

The Character Update is now live! This update focuses on making our new Hamlet characters more interesting for you to play, particularly when playing outside of the Hamlet world.

Wilba has inherited one of her father's more colourful characteristics, namely, she now carries the same curse that inflicts all of her father's family with dreaded werepigism. Also, all of pigkind from Hamlet's town pigs to those of ROG will now recognize her as the king's daughter, and pay her tribute in the form of gifts.

We weren't very happy with how Warbucks was working out. While trying to find ways to make him work, we decided that he just wasn't as interesting as we would like, and so we've made the decision to start from scratch. You can still continue your Warbucks saves as his files will not be removed from the game, but he will no longer be in the official lineup of starting characters.

Instead, we would like to introduce to you our new character, Wormwood! Who knows where this creature of nature came from, but he'll likely grow on you.

Thank you for playing, and we look forward to hearing your feedback!

Placeholder Trivia

Don't Starve Hamlet Announcement Trailer

Don't Starve Hamlet Announcement Trailer

  • The title of the DLC, Hamlet, has three meanings. It can refer to a village, be a pun on pigs (Hamlet), or be a reference to Shakespeare's play.
  • The Hamlet DLC's release date was originally slated for Q1/Q2 2018.
  • When Steam implemented the new wishlist feature in February 2018, they accidentally added the private estimated release date for Hamlet, March 20, 2018, instead of the public date of Q1/Q2 2018[4]. This was soon corrected.
  • In the trailer, Wilson is seen riding a hot air balloon. This is reminiscent of a piece of concept art from the Forbidden Knowledge Trailer Puzzle.
  • The setting is inspired by Monteverde, Costa Rica. [5]
  • The first Hamlet exclusive character was Warbucks, who was added during the DLC's beta. He was later removed from the DLC in update Rev. 307715 of the Early Access. His files were kept in the game, and pre-existing saves with him would not change. In the update post on the forums, Klei gave their reasoning for removing him: "We weren't very happy with how Warbucks was working out. While trying to find ways to make him work, we decided that he just wasn't as interesting as we would like, and so we've made the decision to start from scratch with a new character." [6]
