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.
