[Game Update] - 193574

Release Date: 10/17/16

Update Information:

The shadow queen Charlie has begun to make her mark on the Don't Starve world, and her influence is manifesting in new and mysterious ways. What is her plan for Wilson and the survivors? Will she aid them in their fight for survival, or does she have something more dastardly in store?

Key Features:

  • New Items: Charlie's handiwork is scattered throughout the world, ready for you to explore!
  • New World Event: Discover the power of the Moon Caller’s Staff, obtained through dark and magical means.   
  • Major map improvements: Many new improvements to the map. Including several new items that can be crafted to globally mark items or reveal an area on the minimap for everyone to see. 
  • Find your friends: Craft a compass and never lose a friend again!
  • Disease Changes: Crop disease is now rare and unpredictable, but there are warning signs that players can look out for before a plant becomes diseased. 
  • And more: Balance changes, bug fixes, items and goodies and more!

Bug Fixes

  • Player Minimaps will now load properly when rejoining a server from a different machine.
  • Caves Minimap is now properly cleared when a player dies in Wilderness mode.


Please note that A New Reign content will now be automatically retrofitted into existing Worlds, but we cannot guarantee that this will be exactly the same as using a new Save Slot to generate a new World.  In addition, saved Minimaps in existing Worlds will be reset, just this one time, in order to switch to the new networked Minimap data.
