Tencent has just announced that it’s publishing a new entry in Klei’s popular Don’t Starve franchise. Developed by Shengqu Games, Don’t Starve: Newhome will be a mobile exclusive, and it’s going into closed beta this July.
The game will feature the survival, exploration, and crafting stuff from previous Don’t Starve games, along with new social and multiplayer elements. You’ll be able to build and maintain your own home in the game, and presumably visit the homes of others.
Plus, there will be new creatures to discover, new structures to build, and new items to craft. And you’ll be able to do it all in the company of your real-life bestie. The game will feature a story mode, too. Otherwise it retains the distinctive aesthetic of previous Don’t Starve titles.
The forthcoming closed beta will take place in the US and Canada, and will be exclusively for players over 13. To get involved, head to the official Don’t Starve: Newhome website now and register your details.
