Klei Entertainment’s indie action-adventure hit, Don’t Starve is set to make its way to Xbox One in the form of the ‘Giant Edition’.
Don’t Starve puts players in control of Wilson, an intrepid Gentleman Scientist who has been trapped by a demon and transported to a mysterious wilderness world. As Wilson, the player must learn to exploit the environment and its inhabitants in order to survive and find his way back home.
Don’t Starve: Giant Edition recently released on the Wii U and contains both the original Don’t Starve game and Reign of Giants expansion. Reign of Giants launched back in May 2014 on the PC and adds two new playable characters alongside a new world you have to survive in for a year.
While Don’t Starve has been available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, PlayStation 3, Wii U, and Steam for quite some time, there had been no news of the game coming to Xbox One. Until recently, that is.
The game’s developer took to Twitter once the announcement had been revealed by a leak that showed Don’t Starve had been rated for Xbox One.
Hmmm… I guess the cat's out of the bag! We'll update with more info once we have a date. https://t.co/m5vGsbkUnw
