Don’t Starve: Giant Edition, Headed to the PlayStation Vita

By on

According to a recent announcement by Corey Rollins, Community Manager at Klei Entertainment, Don?t Starve: Giant Edition is coming to the PlayStation Vita.

The PS Vita version of Don?t Starve: Giant Edition will include the original Don?t Starve game along with all the currently released updates for the PC and PS4. A few examples include the multi-leveled caves update as well as the ?Adventure Mode? which puts your survival skills to the test with multiple randomly generated unique worlds while you try to escape your wild and one of a kind prison.

Aside from the original version of the game, players will also get the Reign of Giants expansion. This means that the PS Vita players will get access to 11 players in total with 9 characters from the original game and 2 from the expansion. The new characters are Wigfrid who is a stage actress who seems a little too engrossed by her latest role as an Ancient Valkyrie or Webber, who is a young boy that lives inside the spider that tried to eat him a long time ago.

In addition to the two new characters, the expansion also features new seasonal challenges which include torrential rains during spring and blistering heat during the summer. There will also be new creatures and collectibles, but you?ll have to pick them wisely, as they can both help you or kill you. The expansion will, of course, also feature giants as the expansion name implies.

The PS Vita version of the game has been optimized in order to take advantage of the Vita?s touch features. Things like the navigation menus, items, maps, and crafting will now all be touch friendly. If you want the classic navigation though, that is available too.
