Starbound’s upcoming patch will be the destroyer of worlds

, | News

Starbound will be getting more hats! In a new post on the official page, developer Chucklefish announced that the upcoming patch for Starbound should be released in about a week. The patch will add more decorative hats to collect (always a good thing in the race for videogame hat supremacy) new modes like permadeath and drop-everything-on-death, new weapons, and bug fixes. Unfortunately, the patch will also bring a clean sweep of everything players have built so far.

Of course, there’s also the highly anticipated/possibly feared final character wipe – this patch contains a fix for save files so after this, you won’t need to worry about our patches destroying your characters or ships. This patch will wipe everything – characters, ships and worlds. It will definitely be the last time we’ll need to wipe characters or ships, and will hopefully be the last time we’ll need to wipe worlds.

Think of it as an opportunity to collect more hats! Starbound is available on Steam Early Access or through the official site.
