The Don’t Starve franchise has come along way since it’s initial release in early 2013. The first game in the series started as a solo game, in which players must survive the elements. If players were good enough to survive the first few days, they were able to progress the games story line. The game grew in popularity, which lead to the demand of the multiplayer version. Don’t Starve Together soon became a fan favourite among it’s community, which lead to the DLC.
The most popular DLC for the game is Don’t Starve Together: Reign of Giants. The game added a huge range of extra content, including seasons, bosses and a huge range of weapons and tools. This added a lot more variation to the game, which bought a lot of players back to the game. Once again strengthening the community that has grown over the years. Klei continues to impress players with their constant releases of DLC. This includes Shipwrecked and the recently announced A New Reign Part:2, that will expand on the game. Klei have promised that this new expansion will have fans hooked for hours, with the new content.
New additions in Reign of Giants include:
Don’t Starve Together: Reign of Giants server hosting was in short supply on release date. This was due to some early server problems that Klei were having. The problem was that many hosts were unable to figure out the changes that had taken place. Luckily Klei and a few companies were able to migrate the changes to 3rd party hosting. This mean’t that players were now able to rent DST server hosting with the new configurations of the DLC. Players are now able to rent servers from a huge range of hosts across the world.
The DLC also added the ability to mod configurations, giving player’s more freedom. For example you could change certain in game options, seasons and bosses. Which allowed the game to fit your needs and specific play style. Changing settings would lead to a range of problems including overclocking. This was generally caused by players that were loading to much content to their games. In these cases players would have to rent larger spaces or upgraded servers. This helped to prevent server lag in game and often helped the game run smoother. Console and server commands all appear on the Klei website, for players who need further help.
Klei are a group of talented game developers based in Vancouver, Canada. The team have been creating games since 2005 and have created a variation of popular indie games. Klei also offer a whole host of new games including Oxygen not Included, Grift Lands and Hot Lava. These are all new titles and we would suggest taking a look at these games, if you’re a fan of DST. Each game has it’s own pro’s and cons but is true to the developers style and game play making them worth checking out.
The craft and survive genre is full of games with many titles being added every month. DST: ROG is quite unique in the dark atmosphere that it creates but we have found the following games that are similar to it:
Possibly the closes game that we can think of to Don’t Starve Together: Reign of Giants is 7 Days To Die. This game is very dark and sets place mainly in a claustrophobic forest where you must build a base to defend yourself.
The local wildlife include wolves and bears that are constantly attacking you from out of the darkness. Other players are also a danger you must watch out for. You must protect yourself and the items you have scavenged or created to avoid them being stolen by other people on the same server.
7DTD is fairly priced and has earn’t itself some pretty respectable reviews. Players of the game stick around year after year thanks to its amazing replay-ability.
If you are a fan of craft and survive and are trying to avoid going to a 3D graphics style then check out Terraria. The is game is like a side on Minecraft with digging and battling while crafting to increase your characters chances of survival. Terraria and DST share a lot of similar game play aspects but the biggest difference is that you don’t really dig in Don’t Starve Together.
The game hasn’t got a massive audience of players but as it is a niche game it does have the ability to keep a small group playing. The dark gothic atmosphere in the game is right up some peoples street. Don’t Starve Together and the DLC Reign of Giants retails for a relatively low price on Steam.

Just wanted to ask if there was any Don't starve together server hosting in South America. I have had to use hosts in North America and they have all been pretty terrible and I can never seem to find a host that will actually let me mod my server which is just so annoying. I have been looking for days now and sadly their are no more hosts out there. If you could find me an amazing Brazil host I would be so happy. I have sent you an email as well as I'm hoping you can contact me via email when you find a host that can help me out. DST is such a great game and its annoying I can't play more with my friends. Thanks for your help. DST Server Hosting is rubbish.
Dst is brilliant. such an underrated game. The just released it on ipad as well so I literally play this game everywhere. Sadly the ipad version lacks the community, online and mods :( Hopefully they release multiplayer online for the iPad as well.
Really want the cave systems to be released ASAP. Also please please please make this cross platform so I can play with my friends that have consoles. Would be so amazing if this game went cross platform. **Finger crossed**
It's a real shame that their isn't more don't starve together server hosting companies around as its such a great game and has such a great development team behind it. I feel that the game still has a little way to go yet with ping issues can recurring lag when you hit a certain numbers of days or have a certain amount of payers on your server. with the way Klei are churning out the updates and the news of more DLC I can see Don't strave together inheriting a lot more on the single plays features in the near future. Finger crossed for the future updates.
Really can't wait for them to add the cave systems to this game! ROG was a nice addition but I already want more!!!
Don't Starve together is sooooo much fun. :3 Play for about 2-3 hours every night with my clan and we are smashing the day count. I love how the game just keeps drawing you back in time after time. We must have started a new world like 50+ times. Normally due to those damn dogs in winter... Keep playing.. Keep playing!! :3
Sooooo Good! Thumbs up! A+++++
Jen waz ere LOL
Struggled with lag running my own server. Now running a 20 person server on a dedicated server in the US and not having any problems at the moment. To many people blame the devs for the lag! Not 100% there fault, some home systems just can run it. End of.
Dont Starve Together is great and a I want a server to play on with friends for my twitch channel
:> Me and my friends are on Day 378 without endless on or cheats! Can anyone out there beat that?
Don't buy this game! I have lost most my life playing this game and I can't get it back ^______^
Do I love DST? you bet I do. clocked 483 hours now and have been following DST since the first release. can't wait for them to add caves.
