It would be perfect if they figured a way to spawn the new stuff on old worlds,like what they did with the caves. But i guess they won't do it this time...

 

It would be weird anyway: "Oh look,a new type of tree just appeared without reason"

I wonder if these new trees will have a Tree Guard variant like the Lumpy Tree.

My immediate though was Disco Treeguard.

Am I the only one who is just insanely excited about the trees themselves? I mean thank goodness that I can finally have a tree that isn't a coniferous!

They almost look like truffula trees, which means the badger monster must be the Lorax!

I am the Lorax. I speak for the woods. -proceeds to murder Wilson for cutting down a tree-

I am the Lorax, I speak for the trees, for the trees have no tongues of their own you see. Damn it Leif not now! I am trying to prove a point!

That worked with the caves because they were generated separately to the upper world. Because the content in Reign of Giants is integrated into the world instead of being a separate experience, you will have to generate a new world to see it. That said, it is important to us that you don't lose your old worlds, so we're working on a system that will let you toggle the expansion off in case you wish to play the vanilla version of Don't Starve.

Wait...if there's going to be a beta for the DLC, does that mean that the Wilson Update timer is making a comeback, or no?

I hope so, I miss the count down to a pig slaughter.

So guys do you think that all the new Giants (I'm assuming there's gonna be a few since it is called reign of Giants) will be considered boss monsters like the spider Queen, Tree Guard etc or just tougher enemies?

Personally I think that they will be more like the small tree guards in difficulty with maybe a few harder ones but have no idea what I am talking about or hoping for.

I'm just hoping there's Autumn hounds that drop orange gems (who knows maybe they could be a giant variant of hounds)

This would be OP, i mean we already have orange gems and this would make it very easy to farm them.

This will feel somehow nostalgic then. Back in beta i used the teleportato a lot to get the new features of the updates. It's time to build it again!

yeah,but you would still need to go down to ruins to craft the amulet/staff. Just this would be enough to balance,on my opinion.

Oh yes!!! This sounds (and looks) so good! I'm getting excited, can't wait to try it! :D

Also, birch trees for the win (even though I'm allergic to their pollen)! xD
