Don’t Starve made it’s way to the PlayStation 4 back in January of this year, but now we Vita owners get to enjoy this experience on the go in the form of Don’t Starve: Giant Edition.
According to Corey Rollins from Klei Entertainment, Don’t Starve: Giant Edition for the PlayStation Vita will include the updates currently released on PC and PS4; as well as the multi-leveled caves update and the discoverable “Adventure Mode” that puts your survival skills to the test with multiple randomly-generated unique worlds as you try to escape your wild and strange prison.
Corey also says that, “Along with the original version of Don’t Starve, you’ll also get the Reign of Giants Expansion included! So Vita players will get access to the original nine characters and two new additions. Play as Wigfrid, a stage actress who went a bit too far with method acting on her latest role, an ancient Valkyrie, or Webber, a young boy who lives inside the spider who tried to eat him long ago.”
He goes on to say that, “The Reign of Giants expansion adds new seasonal challenges including the torrential rain falls of spring and the blistering heat of summer. You’ll also get new procedurally-generated biomes filled with new creatures and gatherables that will either help you survive — or kill you. Oh, and Giants.”
They also are taking advantage of the Vita’s touch features. Using the screen you can now navigate the menus, maps, items, and crafting. Luckily for people that don’t fancy touch controls you can still use classic button navigation as well.
No news has been released as to when we will see Don’t Starve: Giant Edition, but be sure to stay tuned as we at The Vita Lounge will be sure to let you know as soon as we do.
