Return of Them: Forgotten Knowledge and Hallowed Nights Available Now!

It seems that the chunk of moon that crashed into the ocean did more than create a new island, but broke through to the caves below as well, revealing previously sealed passageways that had sat undiscovered by our Survivors. What ancient secrets might be kept within?

New Features:

  • Lunar Grotto Biome
    • Lunar Mush Trees
    • Mush Gnomes
    • Naked Mole Bats
    • Bulbous Lightbugs
  • Ancient Archive Biome
    • You'll have to explore
  • Improved Host Game Screen
    • Unlimited save slots
    • Retroactively enable caves!

Hallowed Nights

  • Halloween Trinkets return
  • Halloween Candies return
  • Mad Science Lab returns.

New skin (and some old) sets now available!

We have also added a bunch of new items available as drops in-game or bundled in chests for purchase. Previous Costume Collection skins have been converted to Heirloom Quality items and will no longer drop after the end of the event. 

That's not all. During Hallowed Nights, we have increased the drop chance of Hallowed Nights items, so be on the look-out for these rare items and snag them all while you can!


The Hallowed Nights Survivors Chest, Part III, contains the Hallowed Nights skins for: Walter, Wolfgang, Wormwood, Woodie, and Wurt, for $9.99/16RMB.

The Survivors Costume Chest contains skins for: Wigfrid, Maxwell, Webber, Wendy, Wes, Wickerbottom, Willow, Wilson, Winona, Wolfgang, Woodie, and WX-78, for $12.99/23RMB.

The Costume Clothing Chest contains the complete Catty Costume, Cheeky Chester Costume, Glommy Guise, and Hutch Disguise, for $4.99/10RMB

The Costume Belongings Chest contains Hallowed Light, Macabre Birdcage, Creepy Cauldron, and Vampire Batling, for $4.99/10RMB.

New Streaming Drops!


We are adding the Terrible Ooze Machine to the Hallowed Nights collection. For more information on streaming drops and how to get them, check out our support topic here.

New Login Bonus items!


For a limited time, Log into DST and get the Ancient Stone Wall, Ancient Ornamental Wall and 
Monstrous Lantern skins for free!

Simply make sure you have the game updated and log into the game with the update installed to get the items.


We need to get the console version updated with fixes from to beta version so we expect this update to be available for console early next week. Of course, everything is taking a little extra time right now, so it may take longer than we think, but we'll post if we find out there has been a significant change in timing.

Franchise And Skin Sale!


Hallowed Nights is the best time to pick up any skin set you have been waiting for! For a limited time most skins for DST are up to 50% off!

Also - if you have been waiting to pick up something else in the Don't Starve Franchise, everything is currently on sale for up to 75% off on Steam!

Final Note

We’re already hard at work on the next update. With the holiday event season starting up we have a lot to do, so the normal content and character refresh schedule is going to be a little out of whack for a bit. We have the beta for another content update coming in November followed by its release and Winter’s Feast in December. After a much-needed holiday break in December, we will bring you The Year of the Beefalo and then (hopefully) be back to our normal schedule.

I have a new little teaser for you for the November beta update. This is a pretty big one, and something a bit different, but… I think you’re gonna like it.

Ctrl + F: Warly (0/0)


One more time my heart is just broken... Just like the pots who don't get any skins.

I Must say, it's really really horrible, to see EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER IN THE GAME, EVEN THE ONES WHO NO ONE LIKE, PLAY OR CARE ABOUT, BUT a character who a big part of the players play and like don't get nothing... i really want to now Klei, WHAT DO YOU HAVE AGAINST THE WARLY? WHY DO YOU GUYS DON'T DELETE HIM FROM THE GAME, CAUSE U GUYS DON'T WANT TO DO NOTHING FOR HIM.

Im really really sorry about getting angry like this... but come on! Not even a Butcher covered in blood? Just Toss the Character back in Shipwreck...
