I'm happy as this seems like its going to give everyone what they've wanted (me included).

However, I'm pretty concerned about micro-transactions being transitioned from cosmetic-only to actual content that affects gameplay. Admittedly its a very small thing to monetize and I understand the reasoning for it (if anything content-wise was going to have to be monetized, I would've picked characters). I expressed this same concern back when micro-transactions were first introduced as well, back when I was concerned it would stop being cosmetic only.

I just hope the spool price will actually be affordable, especially to those cursed with pleated shirt drops for all eternity.

Brand New Content

 

The team is now working on brand new content for Don’t Starve Together. Survivors will be able to travel to new lands with new biomes, creatures, and more. 

The first drop of this new content will come in mid-April, and we will continually be adding to the content every couple months afterward. As we said before, we think it’s important that everyone can play together and we don’t segregate our audience, so all of this content will be available for free to everyone!

Thank you for all work for this upcoming update Klei!
I'm so excited for all this XD

Character Refreshes
The team also felt it was high time we gave our core cast some love (yes, we heard you). Over the course of the next year, we will be bestowing every character with revamped abilities, and give a glimpse into their backstory. Our goals here are to make each character unique, interesting and valuable in their own right and we expect this to be game changing in many ways.

Starting in March with Winona, we will be releasing a character refresh once a month.

These character refreshes will again be free to all players, and we will be selling new skins for these characters on the month they are refreshed. 

In addition, the Triumphant, Guest of Honor and Survivor skin packs will be available to purchase for the character on that date. All owners of these skins prior to that date will be upgraded to an “Heirloom” rarity, with a higher unraveling value.

New Characters Enter the Fray
A fresh batch of four characters have been unwittingly ensnared and brought into the world. These new survivors will be released into the wild starting in Mid-March, and a new one will be released every 2 months.

We are still deciding the final price of these characters, but we currently think they will be $6.99 USD each, which includes a full character skin set. You will also be able to weave the characters with spool.

Since we do not want to charge players for the new world content, these new characters will be our main way to fund development of this new content.

I love this decision that Klei have conclude.. I think it is really fair and I would definitely buy those characters to support Klei more!
and Glimpse of their backstory is something that I already want to see for a long time, so thank you Klei for finally releasing it! I LOVE KLEI <3
This has been an amazing boost for me to looking forward to 2019!

Hope they don't rebalance Wilson. he's just fine.

Yeah, but there's still better options to pick.

He's kinda only there for casual play or for new players.

You know all the stuff in those chests are locked to the drops from the gorge right? The drops inside are predetermined by the time you obtain them. You won't get anything new out of them.

I'm hoping for more unimplemented characters as DLC. They've waited long enough for their time to shine.

However as much as he doesn't fit in I'm still saddened that Pyro is probably never gonna be officially implemented into the game. The idea that the devs even worked on him surprises and intrigues me.

What about Wagstaff?

You're the best Klei.

No wonder you hit the "Top 10 Devs of the year 2018".

But I'll probably be at sea by April.

Gotta make a living for myself xD.

I don't mind paying for the characters personally. @JoeW Have you guys considered a character bundle at a small discount for those of us who would buy them all anyway? Say, all 4 characters for $20-$25?

Hey, here's one more question for you @JoeW, if you're not overloaded already that is.

In the post, it mentions the paid characters including a "full character skin set," and I was wondering what this meant.

Does it mean it comes with like, a singular skin set? Or like, all the sets that have been released previously? Will these characters receive the same treatment that Max and Winona received? Oh, and would it be possible for their skins to drop? 

Okay, in retrospect, that's like four questions, but I think they're important enough to look into.

i'm guessing it means a skin set of head, torso, legs, shoe, hands. Doing a full set of each previously released skin would be a whole lot of work 

 

that's just my guess though

I'd assume considering it reads as "a full character skin set" and not "the full character skin set," that it means a single one, but still might not be quite the case.
