Don't Starve: Hamlet artwork featuring one of the aristocratic pigmen

Don't Starve might be a fairly ancient game by this point, but Klei Entertainment aren't showing any signs of slowing down when it comes to new content. The most recent Shipwrecked expansion will soon be getting a whole bunch of new features and items, Don't Starve Together will be getting difficult and time-limited events, and if that wasn't enough, there is also a massive new expansion on the horizon - Hamlet!

The details are still a bit shaky, but what I can tell you is that this singleplayer DLC will add a variety of new jungle biomes, as well as a long lost city of aristocratic Pigmen. Expect to see a ton of new items, ancient Pigmen ruins full of treasure and most likely curses, and naturally, a whole bunch of new and extremely dangerous enemies to constantly run away from. You can get a brief glimpse at what all of this looks like via the recently posted teaser trailer down below, though I'm afraid there isn't any actual gameplay footage:

As for the upcoming Don't Starve Together: The Forge patch, that will bring with it a series of limited-time modes that offer up entirely new ways of getting killed in playing Don't Starve. For example, one of the events will have you team up with five other players in order to beat down a difficult boss or die trying. The idea with these events is to create something unique and crazy without breaking the core game. As such, none of this will be be a standard part of a playthrough, but rather a little extra challenge you can attempt to conquer for fancy new cosmetics.

Don't Starve Together: The Forge will be coming this November, and most importantly of all, it will be free for all owners of Don't Starve Together! As for Hamlet, it will be coming at some point in early 2018, though no exact release date has been given just yet. Since I can offer you very little else in terms of useful information, allow me to send you off with a couple of the new images:
