Don’t Starve Together arrives on PS4 on 13th September

Plus, Don’t Starve Mega Pack also incoming from Klei Entertainment

Hello, PlayStation Blog! Corey here from Klei Entertainment with some exciting news. We are extremely happy to announce that Don’t Starve Together is coming to PS4 on 13th September along with a brand new bundle, the Don’t Starve Mega Pack, which will be 60% off for players who already own the original Don’t Starve!

Don't Starve Together

Since the launch of the classic single-player Don’t Starve on PS4, we’ve gone on to release two expansions, various themes, and now the multiplayer focused Don’t Starve Together. The Mega Pack will include the entire current Don’t Starve PS4 catalogue in one snazzy bundle full of survival and savings.

The Mega Pack includes:

  • Don’t Starve Together: Console Edition
  • Don’t Starve: Console Edition
  • Don’t Starve: Shipwrecked
  • Don’t Starve: Reign of Giants
  • Don’t Starve: Console Edition: Shipwrecked Theme
  • Don’t Starve: Console Edition: Autumn Theme

On 13th September, PS4 fans will be able to get everything shown in the list above via the Don’t Starve: Mega Pack.

As a special thank you to PS4 Players who already own the original Don’t Starve, you’ll be able to get the Don’t Starve Mega Pack for 60% off its normal price. This way you can save on the brand new multiplayer expansion and get any themes or single-player expansions you may not have yet. Thank you!

One of the most exciting parts of this bundle is undoubtedly the release of Don’t Starve Together. This new entry in the Don’t Starve collection will support up to six players online and for the first time ever, support split-screen couch co-op both locally and online!

We loved hearing stories about friends and families finding creative ways to share the controller while playing the original single-player Don’t Starve. From passing the controller every in-game day, every death, or simply at random, it was clear this was a game many people wanted to enjoy “Together” (See what we did there?), on a couch. Now players will be able to survive together on the same couch, and even take their split-screen game online if they want and create or join an existing game to play with others.

Thank you to all the Don’t Starve players who have been patiently waiting for an official release date on Don’t Starve Together. We’re really excited for everyone to jump in on 13th September, and hopefully not starve.

  • Don’t suppose there’s any possibility/comment on Don’t Starve Shipwrecked for Vita?

    • Nobody buys games on Vita, the system is slower than most smartphones! Really stop asking its a dead system, even the Nintendo 2DS gets more games because people love it!

    • But for some reason they just keep making games for it! – https://www.reddit.com/r/vita/wiki/games/releases/dates/fullna

      It’s almost like game developers are making games with the intent that people will buy them or something..

    • “Nobody buys games on Vita, it’s slower than most smartphones”. Based on that theory why does the 2DS do well? As you said it’s because people love it you said! And I love my Vita.

      And the Vita is significantly more powerful than the 2DS, 3DS or the ‘re 3DS’. Your point is full of flaws.

    • Not at this time. I know it’s not the same as an official release, but in the mean time all of our PS4 DS titles do work quite well remote play. If anything changes with Vita development we’ll let everyone know!

  • This is amazing! After getting Don’t Starve for free, I will happily pay for this, what a game and great fanservice! Extra question – is/will Shipwrecked be compatible with Together?

    • Please share where you got it for free? And please dont say 50€/year (soon 60€/year) is free.

    • Playstation Plus. Once I’ve got £40 worth of games, the rest is free. Don’t Starve was free, the way I see it anyway.

    • Thats like saying you leased a car, but it was free!

    • Thank you! We’re not quite sure how it would work technically just yet, but we do agree sailing the seas with friends would be fun. We’re exploring what’s possible but we aren’t sure if we can do it just yet. If it ends up happening we’ll let everyone know!

  • And what’s the price of the Mega Bundle? Will the console version be identical to the pc content wise (for example, the skins/cosmetic drops)?

    • This. What is the price please? Why not post the price if you even know the discount already.

      it will probably suck for those who already own the DLC included Shipwrecked.

    • Hmmm…I actually had all the pricing in there, but it was NA pricing so I think they removed it before posting as it may still be confirmed.

      I can’t comment on exact EU pricing, but NA pricing has been announced and is public, so you can get an idea.

      Mega Pack is $26.99 USD for new players.

      If you own the original Don’t Starve on PS4, it is 60% off making it $10.79 USD. This means existing players can complete their entire collection with all single player expansions, get all the premium themes, and the new Don’t Starve Together, for less than just buying Don’t Starve Together on its own (which is $14.99 USD when bought alone.) Hope that helps.

    • Thank you Corey, i’ll assume that the price will be around 10€, now all i have to do is convince my friend to purchase the game.

    • Thanks for the price and I know you are nice people, so is this just an oversight that everyone who just bought Shipwrecked wasted $4.50 compared to buying the MegaBundle?

    • So buying the Megabundle includes Shipwrecked? But I just spent $4.50 on it, what was the pioint of that?

  • Dont starve was an excellent game. I hope some of these expansions come to Vita

  • This is the best gaming news in years! I waited so long to do this together with friends on the same couch.
    I need to get some extra free time after 13th september, cant wait!

    • Thank you! We’re really excited to get this out. We heard so many stories about people finding creative ways to couch co-op the original single player game that this was really important for us to add to DST on console for both online and offline play!

  • Will there be a platinum trophy? Loved the first one but never felt compelled to explore the rest of the game because there was nothing to shoot for rather then just be there and survive.

  • So how many people can play on one system? 2 or 4?

    • Two people can play locally at one time (split screen). However, you can play this online and offline. If you decide to play online, other people can join your server if you want (up to 6 players at one time on a server).

      Also with online couch co-op, you and a friend can play together at home and you can continue / pickup the game on your own separate consoles at home!

    • Will you be adding 3-4 player splitscreen? That would be amazing! Nowhere near enough 4p splitscreen games on PS4 and this would be perfect for it.

    • @Supvic – No. I mean, technically we “could” but we tried adding more players on screen and honestly it’s pretty much unplayable once you slice it more than once because of the amount of UI required for each player to play properly. The only possible solution would be to lock the camera and never allow players to leave a single shared screen, and that’s a really bad solution for this game as you often need to split up. So we stuck with 2 player couch co-op for the best experience.

    • @Corey Rollins
      “Also with online couch co-op, you and a friend can play together at home and you can continue / pickup the game on your own separate consoles at home!”

      Can you explain how is that going to work? Is the game hosted on a dedicated server?

  • Any chance for adding more languages? On PC even fanmods can do it. Why not make it official?

    • At launch it will be English only, we still have a lot of content we want to add. Throwing multiple languages in to the mix makes updating / cert much slower. BUT we are interested and actively looking at adding a wide range of language support in the future.

  • Is Don’t Starve Together still free for all existing Don’t Starve owners?

    • Don’t Starve Together isn’t free, but if you already own Don’t Starve (even if you got that free on PS+) the new Mega Pack is 60% off the usual price of 26.99 USD making it 10.79 which is less than just buying Don’t Starve Together on its own (which is 14.99 USD). This way people can just have the whole collection of DLC’s and animated themes!

      Sorry don’t have exact EU pricing just yet, but that should give you an idea.

    • @Corey Rollins
      “even if you got that free on PS+”
      Thanks for answering the important question!
      Do you know, if buying the mega pack, will upgrade the base game from PS+ to owned?

  • So having purchased Shopwrecked (and all other) dlc gives me a huge disadvantage, especially since I only just bought shipwrecked. Horrible company!

    • Horrible thing to say. Paying for the game is not only for you to own the game, its also a token of support.
      If you like the game then paying a little more is totally worth it, because the game wil benefit from it in the end. The company needs money to keep making the game bigger/better.

    • Its a horrible company if they bring out a DLC and then 3 weeks later announce that DLC will be free, they could offer the reduced price complete bundle for 4.50 less (as shipwrecked cost) and it would be fine. Or they could have announced their pricing with the shipwrecked dlc when it came out because then i wouldnt have purchased it. This feel almost as bad as the scams with No Mans Sky.

    • The game and the released DLC ‘s were almost free on ps4 to begin with. I never payed so little for so much fun. And discounts are always a thing. Sometimes you buy something and a week later its on discount, it happens.

      I paid around 12 euro for all dont starve content to date, thats nothing compared to other games.
      and im happy to pay 10 more for DST.

  • Great news. I’m glad you are supporting the consoles with the full Don’t Starve experience. As I’m currently saving for the Neo, this will be featuring on my Christmas shopping list.

  • Don’t starve was one of the reasons I bought a PS4 and I liked it but I was terrible at it. I am hoping this expansion will let me play with others who have a clue so I can get better at this. Really looking forward to this :D

  • The discount is not 60 % but 48 %, the final price being 12,95 €.
