Don't Starve Together Roadmap 2019

Recommended Posts

For a company that focuses on singleplayer games only, they are doing a good job. Not perfectly though, after all most of the content released for DST were timed events, leaving core game... stale, but they realised it and are adding new stuff so we can all enjoy it whenever we like.

Okay so.... Are The Forge and The Gorge not returning for good, or is Klei figuring out how to bring them back? No more events make me sad. :(

I'd expect them to return in some form eventually. Maybe even as an option for the server play style like Survival and Endless.
But the focus right now is the characters and content for the normal game. So...probably not any time soon.
In the mean time, the Forge is playable through modding. Check out Forged Forge! Could always use more players.

Would be nice if the events become mini-dlcs with their own gameplay.

Upcoming
At the end of April we are planning to release the first major game update. This first update will be focused on laying the groundwork for more content. 

In addition, the next character to be refreshed will be Willow, launching at the same time as the game update.

When will the Gorge be back?

Bigfoot addressed this in the op:

While we enjoyed the events and are happy with the result, there were some drawbacks: 

  • They took WAY longer to make than we expected, so we weren’t able to make as much content as we wanted, and it left little time to do things like bug fixes and Quality of Life updates for the base game.
  • Because we run the servers for these events, we also incurred the cost of these servers. Those of you who have been here a while know that Don’t Starve was not architected to be a multiplayer game, so running them on our servers was extremely inefficient. In short, even though we loved that everyone came to play, the item sales were only barely covering the costs of the servers.
  • We found that it was exceedingly difficult for us to run these events on console and as such underserved our console players.

It has been a valuable experience and we think the game is better for it, however we feel that it’s time that we turn our attention back to the core Don’t Starve Together experience: surviving together. 

Bolded last sentence for emphasis. They are focusing on permanent content for the time being.

If they do discontinue the Gorge, Klei should at least consider making the event items weaveable..

You're getting a brand new base game character, and the full release of the Hamlet DLC this month, what are you talking about? This roadmap is for Don't Starve Together, of course there won't be a mention of singleplayer here.

The roadmap you're looking for is here: 

 

I talk about reign of giant

New reign was a great update for survival dst. But none of these update shared to rog. Also, don't starve together have not real 1 player mode and because of that I play with tons of lags and pings.

Why not ask in DS forums instead? This is for DST.
You can set player count to singleplayer if you want in DST.
ROG isn't going to get any updates, it's done and old.
Hamlet is being released and is getting a new character soon, and base Don't Starve without DLCs is also getting a new character soon.

you can play offline with negligible (probably 0 but im not sure) latency. also as someone pointed out in another thread, DST is the sequel to DS and as a more recent and online game, its in all of its rights to get more updates and support than the older, offline predecessor... or thats how some of us see it at least

With caves running at the same time it can get pretty...uh, not optimal. Like, noticeable action delays and world crashing constantly after day 11 levels of not optimal.

This can be pretty helpful for getting it working if you've got a multi-core setup, but regardless, personal servers are pretty rough for those of us with low-end equipment. Could certainly use some optimization.

Honestly Klei should come up with a "caves only" thing so listen servers can host it no problem. It's overdue at this point especially when there's a unused florid postern.

return {

    preset = "#"

#- "SURVIVAL_TOGETHER", "MOD_MISSING", "SURVIVAL_TOGETHER_CLASSIC", "SURVIVAL_DEFAULT_PLUS", "COMPLETE_DARKNESS", "DST_CAVE", "DST_CAVE_PLUS"

}

 

From these above - variants for world presets - we can see Klei already included, at least in conceptual "back-end" form, a lot more variations. Don't know exactly what each of them imply (have tested just "DST_CAVE" myself - spawning in a pretty standard, default-values cave) but imo they should exist as options at in-game UI level.
