Cult of the Lamb developer Massive Monster is teaming up with Don’t Starve Together developer Klei Entertainment for a special crossover event which will bring themed in-game items, decorations, a new survival mode, Webber as a follower, and so much more.

The free Cult of the Lamb update is available as of today, and, as we mentioned, it will see Don’t Starve Together’s friendly spider-infused character Webber make the leap to the charming roguelite as a follower with multiple variants. To get your hooves on Webber you’ll first need to obtain a skull dropped by a defeated spider. Proceed to bury said skull in a grave – as any self respecting lamb would – and the arachnid sycophant will pop out of the ground, ready and willing to do your unholy bidding.

Unlocking Webber as a follower has the added benefit of unlocking new Don’t Starve Together themed decorations for your cult, including the alchemy engine, marbled tree, and, of course, the aptly named pig head flag.

Gaining Webber also grants access to the Penitence game mode, which introduces Don’t Starve-inspired hunger and sleep mechanics to your unholy adventure. After selecting the Penitence mode upon starting a new game, the player will have to contend with two ever decreasing bars, representing the protagonist’s hunger and need for sleep. A failure to satiate either of these needs will result in permadeath, much like it would in real life.

“The key to survival will be to manage both your Hunger and Sleep levels – they will continue to go down, even when on crusades,” read a post on Cult of the Lamb’s Steam store page describing the new additions. “You will be able to abandon a crusade early, but this will come at a slight cost of some of the resources you gathered.”

Don’t Starve Together has also received a selection of Cult of the Lamb themed items, including the Crown trinket, which can be extracted from wet pouches fished from the oasis lake and offered to the Antlion in exchange for new blueprints. Klei Entertainment is also offering a limited time log-in reward, which will net players a number of item skins and rewards to let you starve in occult style.

The update is available now on Xbox, and PlayStation consoles, and PC, and a Nintendo Switch version containing the content will be available “very soon”.
