Stardew Valley is getting co-op, console versions, and a new content update


I've got a brand new combine harvester

ConcernedApe hasn’t finished consuming every waking moment of your life with Stardew Valley just yet. Plans for future updates have been unveiled, and there’s a hell of a lot there to drag you back to your happy little farm.

In the immediate future, version 1.1 is on its way and will include:

  • More late-game content
  • New farm buildings
  • New crops
  • New artisan goods
  • New advanced farming/producing mechanics
  • Shane and Emily will be marriage candidates. They will also have more events and dialogue as a result.
  • More marriage content for all spouses
  • More events for the non-marriage NPC’s
  • Improvements/Additions to mining and combat
  • Ability to move buildings and other convenience features
  • More bug fixes
  • More secrets
  • More small, fun touches to the world

Basically, if you like the NPCs, this new update will let you do more things to more of them. As there isn’t a date for when this update will drop yet, everything listed could be subject to change.

ConcernedApe has also outlined some of the new things that will be coming a little bit further down the line: console ports, Mac/Linux versions, non-English localisations, merchandise (branded seeds, please), and most importantly of all, co-op multiplayer.

Work has already begun on the multiplayer mode, as publisher Chucklefish has taken over the technical side of things. This frees up time for ConcernedApe to finish V1.1 and get started on the rest of the list, so while there is no confirmed release date for anything just yet, it can’t be too far off.

Stardew Valley was an instant success, and as of last month has already passed one million sales. For a PC indie game about farming and smooching cute doctors, that sure is impressive. Glad to see some of that success is being pumped straight back into making the game even better!
