You'll Probably Be Getting a Free Copy of Don't Starve: Giant Edition on Vita Soon

Posted by Kell Andersen

Through the magic of Cross-buy

Developer Klei Entertainment has recently announced that Don't Starve: Giant Edition - the compilation containing both the original game and its expansion - will be coming to the PlayStation Vita on 3rd September. When an opportunistic fan on Twitter asked wether the title would be cross-buy, the answer was a resounding affirmative.

"It's still cross-buy," the studio said. "But we obviously appreciate the support if you grab the expansion on PS4!" Importantly, this means that if you picked up the title for free when it was offered through PlayStation Plus, you'll now be able to download it on Vita for nothing. However, due to some technical mumbo-jumbo that we don't really understand, the strategic stunner unfortunately won't be cross-play, which means that you'll need to have a separate save file for your portable system.

Are you excited to relive Don't Starve on Sony's handheld darling, or is your hunger suitably satiated? Grab a bite to eat in the comments section below.

I'll probably give this a go on Vita, but I never could get into it on PS4 via PS+. Glad I got it free. I find the game interesting, but not that fun to play.

Makes sense that it isn't cross play, because it's a separate version of the game. The fact that it's crossbuy is more surprising!

I noticed Crimson land on the vita says, buy this and get the ps4 version for free. I bought the ps4 version, why don't I get the vita version for free? seems a bit odd.

What do you peeps make of this game? Any good?

I watched a few gameplay videos when it was on PS+ and it looked pretty boring so never booted it up. Maybe I will on Vita though...

@Dodoo Actually it plays better than it looks. On the surface it looks pretty basic but its actually a pretty deep game. When I first saw it I didn't think much to it but after giving it a try I really enjoyed it. It can be a little hard at first but once you figure out how it works and unlock the right characters that suit your play style it gets alot easier.

Its basically a survival adventure game where fire, food and flowers are your friends and the night time (aswell as the mobs) is your enemy.

Yay I can get Don't Starve: Giant Edition for Vita for free even though I don't have a PS4 because when it was offered for free through PS+ I added it to my list using the online store in hopes that it would be cross buy with the Vita version.

@Dodoo it depends on what kind of game you like. You are dropped in to the game with no instructions, no clear goal other than survival (with no idea how to do even that), and the entire world (including the world itself!) is out to kill you. If you buy the expansion, it more or less just adds a bunch of new ways for the game to kill you. That being said, if you don't play it, you are missing out!
