Don’t Starve: Reign of Giants Gameplay

Posted by on April 18th, 2014 | 1 Comment | Tags:

Last weekend, we stopped by the Klei booth at PAX East and rapped about Don’t Starve’s upcoming Reign of Giants content. The update will hit Steam first, then come to PS4 in a short while (think a couple of months). In addition to new playable characters and slaughterable enemy types, the content will introduce two new seasons: spring and summer.

In the spring, rain will cause a whole bevy of misery, including water-logging items and extinguishing your fires. The summer has somewhat opposite effects, causing flammable objects to combust and, I’m guessing, spoiling non-refrigerated meats. Instead of starting in the same season, players will spawn in a random season, changing preparation strategies. Finally, each season has its own giant – passive if you leave it alone; abominable if you pique its interest.

Check out some B-roll footage above or listen to the PAX East C Side episode for more information on Reign of Giants.
