Don't Starve: Giant Edition hits PS Vita on Sept. 2

New, 4 comments

Don't Starve: Giant Edition — Klei Entertainment's macabre humor-laden survival sim bundled with its Reign of Giants expansion — will launch for PlayStation Vita on Sept. 2, the developer announced today in a post on the PlayStation Blog.

Giant Edition will cost $14.99 and is cross-buy-compatible with the PlayStation 4 version. Players who already own the title on PS4 will be able to snag the PS Vita version at no extra cost. However, due to Klei having to rewrite Don't Starve's code to optimize it for PS Vita, save files are not compatible across both versions and cross-play is not available.

The PS Vita version — first announced back in June — includes two new playable characters, the stage actress Wigfrid and Webber, a young boy who "lives inside the spider who tried to eat him long ago," according to Klei. Giant Edition also includes new year-round seasons, a larger world with new biomes and creatures, an extra save slot and of course, roaming giants.

Don't Starve first launched for Linux, Mac and Windows PC in April 2013 and for PS4 this past January. For more details on the game, check out Polygon's review.
