The latest major content patch for the wilderness survival game Don’t Starve Together is here. The Curse of Moon Quay Update will make you face new sea-faring enemies, particularly the interdimensional monkey pirates.

Another thing worth mentioning here is that the map controls are now more intuitive than ever. For instance, zooming in or out is not only much smoother but now focuses on the cursor as well.

In addition, the favorite food bonus now takes into account Warly’s spices. If you are new to the game, different characters in Don’t Starve Together have favorite foods. When they’re fed with foods that they like, they will gain an extra 15 points on their hunger meter. In The Curse of the Moon Quay Update, they will gain an additional bonus. Chili Flakes, for example, provide a 20% damage buff.
