Stardew Valley turns Four years previous in the present day. It’s been sixteen seasons because it arrived on PC, kicking off a wave of comparable informal farming games on PC. Developer ConcernedApe is celebrating the anniversary with an off-the-cuff announcement that the solar just isn’t setting on his continued work planting Stardew’s future. He says that with Stardew Valley’s extraordinarily giant 1.Four replace now obtainable on all platforms, one other free replace (1.5, naturally) is already within the works.
The 1.Four replace that ConcernedApe known as the “everything update” arrived for PC gamers simply three months in the past and was true to its identify. The large content material replace actually did contact nearly each a part of the game with both fully new options, story, or high quality of life adjustments. You can have fish ponds in your farm now, making an angler’s profession much more viable. Spouses acquired new cutscene occasions for 14-heart relationship ranges (by no means thought you possibly can increase the extent cap on love, eh?). The deserted JojaMart acquired a mysterious new use as properly. Oh yeah, and the trash bear.
So what comes after “everything”? Hard to say, as a result of ConcernedApe hasn’t gotten into specifics but. I think about it gained’t be almost as giant because the 1.Four replace which took a heck of some time to develop from unique point out to ultimate launch. That stated although, the replace simply earlier than that was the extraordinarily long-in-the-pipe multiplayer replace. Perhaps one thing equally giant is within the works once more—through which case we’d all higher get able to be fairly affected person.
Earlier this month, ConcernedApe responded to a participant on Twitter confirming that he’s engaged on two new games as properly, although he additionally cautioned in opposition to hype for these tasks saying “I’d like to just make whatever game comes naturally to me without too much pressure or expectation.” Best not get too hyped for the 1.5 replace then. At least not till ConcernedApe looks like elaborating. I’ve all the time loved Stardew’s huge updates, so I’m certain no matter he’s acquired deliberate shall be grand.
