Stardew Valley: Exciting Updates Bound Early 2018

| December 10, 2017

ChuckleFish, developer of the critically acclaimed indie game Stardew Valley has recently posted a big blog update letting players know that they plan to implement many additions to the game in the beginning of 2018.

A big highlight on the blog post was for the most exciting update to Stardew Valley. I am of course talking about the highly anticipated inclusion of multiplayer mode for all current versions of the game.

On their blog the developer has made sure to update the current status of the before-mentioned multiplayer update, stating: “Tom is working on implementing marriage between players, and recently finished up working on festivals. Now you’ll have someone to dance with at the Flower Dance, even if you’ve yet to win over any of the residents of Pelican Town.”

ChuckleFish has also stated that Stardew Valley is to receive new content, but what that content might be is yet unknown.

In addition to the changes being done to the core Stardew experience, Chuckefish has made an exceptionally exciting announcement for lovers of Sony’s PS Vita. A port Stardew Valley is launching alongside all of the before mentioned updates. This version will include remote play with the PS4 but unfortunately will be the only version of Stardew Valley that won’t receive the multiplayer update.

All the Stardew Valley updates have been expected since mid-2017, but due to “polishing and QA”, the developer has decided to move all Stardew Valley related-updates to the first quarter of 2018.

Stardew Valley is an indie farming simulator that both revives many features from known games in the genre such as Harvest moon, whilst adding modern eases to create a smoother experience. The game is currently on Nintendo Switch, Steam, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and has a very high Metacritic score of 89 for its Steam version.
