Getting Ready for Reign of Giants.

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

The first time I saw a lumpy tree I thought it would like.. murder me, so I was so scared of it. :p

it said in the OP that the DLC will be on the surface (also the dev at the top of this page if you have default posts per page)

I just had an awesome idea for one of the giants, what if the pigs had a deity to which they made sacrifices every fall. A troop of pig warriors could escort a regular pig into a grove of trees where the god of the grove would then come and take the sacrifice, if you stopped the sacrifice from happening the grove god would then attack the nearest pig village. Another Autumn idea would be to finally implement scare crows, either for their intended purpose or just for aesthetics.  This is also an opportunity too give us a killable pig king, and get back at the fat oaf for all he has done to us.

I bet all my hats that they're adding scarecrows.

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!

 

But... They're not piney! :(

Very excited for this. Will definitely purchase early access beta. So when is it being released? I heard around September...hardly 'soon.'

Finally it arrives, the announcement to the DLC and so far it looks great. :)

Maybe Wilson calls them "birchy" or something.

And Maxwell will say that he heard that they where called birchy.

Just so long there's a lot of fiery things.  I'll be happy.

Of course. There's just GOT TO be a place that spawns Wortox >;-D

Not that I'm speaking for him, but I doubt it considering they weren't in the other early betas of updates. It's just easier for distribution to just use Steam.

We don't have it all setup yet, but any purchase from dontstarvegame.com or steam would get the ability to update both versions. However, Chrome has been retired. Even if it wasn't, we wouldn't be able to get the DLC in there, it's just not able to handle it. 

 

Now, at what stage you will be able to play the steam version or the standalone version, we don't know yet. 

 

But when the beta is over, you will have both versions, certainly.

Oh man.. I love so much the Don't Starve Team! I'm a really, really really fan of you all xD Not only because the game, but for all the work, all the willpower and the concern with the players to make a good job! You guys, make every minute playing worth it for your talent and commitment, and this is the real reason to make games, not only for the money or the fame, but the pleasure of this ^^ Please, keep up the good work, and oh, I would love to make part of those who will have the chance of experiment the Beta =D Well, I'm brazilian.. So sorry for any typing error or something annoying.. All I said is true and for the heart, of a big fan waiting for something spectacular on this DLC xD I know you will not disappoint us, and... uh, don't starve! (I'm really sorry if I write something wrong T.T)

Best guess on Autumn it'll be a buffer period between summer and winter. Maybe with the days still being warm enough you don't need winter clothes but for night exploring you'll need something to keep you warm.

Maybe breezy vest and umbrella are finally going to be useful.
