Klei Entertainment have announced Don’t Starve: Hamlet, a new expansion for their fiendish survival game. Don’t get any silly ideas about Danish princes or William Shakespeare (though an immortal bard would be a fiendish foe), as the expansion will focus on the simple and sensible idea of a town of aristocratic pigmen. A hamlet. It’s a pun. Wordplay, you know? Jokes. The singleplayer expansion will add a touch of civility to Don’t Starve [official site] with houses, shops, and the most ‘civilised’ of activities: plundering ancient ruins for treasures to claim as your own.
New creatures and items are coming free to the Shipwrecked expansion, Klei also announced, and the cooperative Don’t Starve Together is getting time-limited events.
