Developer ConcernedApe has announced details on the Stardew Valley 1.4 update, which is currently being prepped for a PC release on November 26 and will be rolled out to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game soon after.
The news comes following the release of Stardew Valley update 1.3 for the Xbox One, which brings all versions of the game – except for PlayStation Vita, that is – into parity with each other. PS4 got this patch back in September.

Here’s what ConcernedApe had to say on the impending Stardew Valley 1.4 update:
Now, the next big thing for Stardew Valley is going to be the free 1.4 update, which adds a pretty big variety of new things to Stardew Valley. One of my main goals with 1.4 was to finally “polish” the game to the degree that I’ve always wanted.

There’s a lot of little things like that, where I felt that the game had some holes or weak points that could use a little boost. Another example, is that every spouse now has a unique 14-heart event after marriage:
