[Game Update] - 212819

Release Date: 04/05/2017


Update Information:

The reign of the new shadow queen has swept across the land of Don't Starve Together and now creeps deep into the bowels of the earth. What ancient secrets will be dredged up by Charlie's dark machinations, and what purpose does she have in mind for the formidable being at the center of the Ruins?


New Giants: New bosses like the Toadstool, Bee Queen and Klaus await your challenge.  The Antlion may give you trouble too, if you're looking to pick a fight...

Enhanced Biomes: Explore the desert biome for a chance to discover a luscious oasis, or brave the caves and delve into the heart of the Ruins for ancient secrets.

New Ruins Content: Who is the Ancient Fuelweaver, and what does Charlie have in store for him?


A New Reign is complete and live now!  We would like to give a huge thanks to everyone who participated in the Beta, and we are completely blown away by how helpful this community has been with bug reports and feedback.

Please note that all the new content added as part of A New Reign will 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.
