Don't Starve to get single-player Hamlet DLC and more

Second helpings?

Klei Entertainment has been quiet about Don't Starve for a few months now, but it seems the team has been working on a raft of new gubbins.

In the official Don't Starve forum, the developer announced a new single-player DLC called Hamlet.

In the Hamlet DLC, which is due for release at some point during the first half of next year, peculiar scientist Wilson finds a portal to the origins of the Pigmen and tries to survive while he explores their civilisation. Check out the announcement trailer below.

In addition to the DLC, Klei is working on a series of free events for Don't Starve Together. The events are limited-time play modes and aim to "mix up the experience", with those who complete them earning special skins.

Don't Starve Together: The Forge is the first event, coming in November. This six-player co-op challenge tasks players with defeating the Grand Forge Boarrior. The Forge includes new character traits, weapons, armour, items and combat abilities.

On top of that, Don't Starve Together has a new challenger called Winona, who is now available on Steam, and the game has just been announced for Xbox One.
