A friend on steam told me there's (going to be?) a new expansion on Don't Starve (Together)? I'd love to start playing but am not sure how to install it.
Can anyone find/make a step by step guide?
You can find the instructions to opt-in the beta at the following link on the official forum.
Follow these instructions:
- In steam click on Library > Games.
- Scroll down to Don't Starve Together.
- Right-click, select Properties.
- Go to the BETAS tab.
- In the dropdown, select the "anewreignbeta" branch.
- In that same properties window, go to the Local Files tab and press Verify Integrity Of Game Cache.
- Your game will be updated to the beta version.
- Run the game and go to Browse Games. You should see servers which are running the beta. Have fun!
At the link I've provided you can also find a visual guide with the steps highlighted.
