[Game Update] - 119 - The Gorge Available Now!

Recommended Posts

After barely escaping through the Molten Gateway, our survivors plummet headfirst into the ruins of a sickly city ruled by a ravenous beast. Work together to cook fine dishes and placate the Eternal Gnaw's hunger to avoid the curse of its terrible plague. Cook well enough, and you may even get to go home.

The Gorge is a free limited time 3-player co-op challenge with tons of new skins, emotes, items and more. Your goal is to cook and offer food on the Altar of Gnaw, but you'll need all the cooks in the kitchen to keep it fed, so work together to survive!

F.A.Q.

What is The Gorge?
The Gorge is a new limited time event that we are creating for Don’t Starve Together. During this time players can earn event themed skins and rewards that are only dropped during the event. 

Yeah, but WHAT is The Gorge?

The Gorge is played on official Klei servers that are available only during the event. There are no community hosted servers during this event. 

What else is in The Gorge?
- With The Gorge we have added a bunch of new stuff for players to collect. 
- New character skins, emotes, item skins and more. In total over 200 items.
- New free on-demand dedicated event servers (Gorge Only).
- Tons of new main menu UI additions and changes.
- Simple Matchmaking with friends / community groups.
- Updated drop system (Now 4 items per Chest - Gorge only).
- New Item sets available for purchase
- More event level progression.
- And more!

If I play the regular game during the event, can I still earn skins?
You can. However, with one big difference. All common drops will now reward an event chest that contains Gorge event items. Regular common items will return after the event. 

Is The Gorge free?
Yes! Events are free for everyone who owns DST. Players will have the option to purchase a single character’s Victorian Skin Set shortly after launch. 

We hope that with this mechanism, we can both continue creating great free content while also supporting the development team. In addition, this method of funding allows us to provide content to all our players, instead of splitting the player community if we implemented it with a DLC paywall.

When does the Gorge end? 
The Gorge will last a little over 3 weeks from the time it launches, ending September 18th. 

Update 1.1.9

- Start of The Gorge event.
- Fixed showing a player's gamercard when pressing the View button while inspecting them.
- Fixed an incorrect error message when a player is unable to join a server because it is full.
- Fixed an issue where Bearger spawned at the wrong time.
- Fixed a rare crash caused by haunting a crock pot while it is cooking jellybeans.
- Fixed a bug on clients where broken fences did not clear pathfinding.
- Fixed a bug causing baby beefalo to sometimes split from their herd when fully grown.
- Fixed a bug preventing herds from merging properly.

*NOTE* We are aware of a custom match issue and are working on a follow-up fix very soon. In the meantime, please use quick match until the fix has been rolled out.

How do we access the paid skin sets?

The paid skins have to go through Cert separately so they will be available once approved. We decided not to hold the release of The Gorge just to wait on the skins being available for purchase.

Will they be accessible via the "Item Collection" menu like in the PC version? Or will they have to be bought at the Microsoft.com store (the xbox store app)?
