Don’t Starve: Shipwrecked is the new DLC expansion for the original Don’t Starve that has survivors dealing with a much more “abandoned on a tropical island” scenario. As soon as you start the game and enable the Shipwrecked option, your randomly generated world will be filled with oceans, beaches, sea creatures, new items, and more. You won’t be walking everywhere and can take to the deep blue to discover all new locations as well as uncover the secrets that lie beneath. Needless to say, this DLC is a pretty hefty expansion that overhauls the core gameplay and freshens it up with some water.
Besides that, there are also two significant additions to gameplay. Poison is now very much so a thing as certain creatures will be venomous. If you’re poisoned, you’ll need some anti-venom or else you’ll be losing health and sanity for three days. Wetness is much more significant now, as well. It was introduced in Reign of Giants, but it wasn’t as prevalent as it is in this latest sea-faring DLC. Though being wet doesn’t affect the player’s health, it does make certain items slipper, lowering their effectiveness or spoiling food.
