Do you like this video?
Don't Starve: Reign of Giants is downloadable content for Don't Starve. The Reign of Giants DLC was announced on January 15, 2014 and released on April 30, 2014 on PC (Windows/Linux/Mac) and on July 22, 2014 on PlayStation 4.
The Reign of Giants content is also bundled with the base Don't Starve game under the name Don't Starve: Giant Edition (Don't Starve: Pocket Edition for iOS) for other platforms, including PlayStation Vita, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 Wii U, Xbox One, and iOS.
A simplified Early Beta version was released to forum users playing through Steam on February 27, 2014 and, after two updates, an official Beta was released to all Steam users on April 2, 2014.
Don’t Starve: Reign of Giants is an expansion pack that adds new characters, seasons, creatures, biomes, and other challenges to Don’t Starve.
The entire world of Don’t Starve has been expanded and is now even more uncompromising! New mysteries, challenges and scientific innovations await your discovery. Manage your resources well, because the wilderness of Don’t Starve has learned some new tricks.
New playable characters: Reign of Giants adds two characters for players to discover and survive with. Play as Wigfrid, a stage actress who went a bit too far with method acting on her latest role, an ancient Valkyrie, or Webber, a young boy who lives inside the spider who tried to eat him long ago.
Year-round starvation: Struggle through a full year of seasons as you experience the torrential rain falls of spring and the blistering heat of summer.
A bigger, badder world: New biomes have been filled to the brim with new creatures and gatherables that will either help you survive - or kill you.
An extra save slot: You asked, we delivered.
Giants: They’re in the name for crying out loud!
Reign of Giants is an expansion focused on bringing content to the surface world. Its features include:
The Reign of Giants content may be turned on or off as a single unit when starting a new game. In the 'New Game' menu is a checkbox labeled "R of G"; when checked, the character selection, world customizations, and new game start-up will include all of the features of Reign of Giants (including unlocked characters). Players can still play vanilla worlds by checking the checkbox labeled "DS", even in versions where Reign of Giants is bundled with the base game.
If the Shipwrecked and/or Hamlet content is also downloaded, activation of this content is also done by checkbox in the 'New Game' menu, and only one of the checkboxes, Reign of Giants, Shipwrecked or Hamlet, may be checked for a new game.
