There is bugger all information out about it right now, but we will of course give it to you when we get it. I am a big fan of Don't Starve though for it's challenge game-play, dark yet fun visuals with a little comedy making a winning recipe.

Judging by the name I would make a guess that it means some hefty new monsters are invading the land. Article taken from

I really don't like when expansion packs are called DLC. It's such a dumb term, but it caught up for some weird reason...

I guess the original drive behind it was to change the idea of expanding the game with additional quests, extended story line and etc. which are developed over time after the release, to expanding a game with additional features (items, skills etc.) for which the developers would charge extra, while developing everything at the same time as the main game, and just splitting the release to squeeze more money. While expansion pack is a good kind of add-on, DLC (the way I described it) is bad. That's one of the reasons I don't like when real expansion packs (like in this case with Don't Starve) are called DLCs. And also because the term is so non descriptive (obviously created by some "business minds" ).

Well an expansion pack is Downloadable Content isn't it? So it's a correct term to use.

What I hate is when free patches where replaced by DLC.
