Beware of mutinies, quackens, and pack a lifejacket — Don’t Starve: Shipwrecked is set to release for the PlayStation 4 on August 2nd.
Today, Corey Rollins, Community Manager at Klei Entertainment (most notably the developer of Invisible, Inc.), took to the PlayStation Blog to announce that Don’t Starve: Shipwrecked is finally upon us. Rollins also revealed that upon release August 2nd, Don’t Starve: Shipwrecked will be accompanied by a 10% launch discount.
So, what is Don’t Starve: Shipwreck all about? Well, here’s an official description:
In Don’t Starve: Shipwrecked, Wilson finds himself stranded in a tropical archipelago. He must learn to survive all over again in this new environment filled with new biomes, seasons, and creatures.
Don’t let the tropical breeze lull you into a false sense of security – the world might be different, but it is still equal parts unforgiving and uncompromising. You will quickly find these islands are full to the brim with things that want to kill you.
I never played the original, and while I have no intentions to play this expansion, it has left me with a pestering desire to go back and check out all the hooplah about this series.
