Stardew Valley. A game so pleasantly magical and life-affirming that it should be on prescription. A game that delivers so much more than the simple farm life it first appears to offer. All it truly misses is a multiplayer mode, and happily, that was announced last year.
So how is progress on that going? Well, we’ve seen it’s prototype stage at work before, but creator Eric Barone (ConcernedApe) showed it in action again earlier this year.
Stardew Valley Multiplayer Release Date For PC
The downside for PS4 Stardew Valley players is that the multiplayer at least will launch on PC first. The PC release date has now been confirmed as August 1, 2018. A new trailer teased the multiplayer mode.
The only update on the PS4 and Nintendo Switch version is that it will be coming soon.
Further Stardew Valley Updates
Barone had previously stated details on the game’s single player update would be made available closer to its launch. He made sure to mention there would still be some secrets though.
Though Barone has the assistance of Chucklefish Games for the multiplayer, a lot of the work is still down to just him. So patience is a virtue worth having for the delivery of this update.
After all, it took one man nearly five years of his life to make such a special game as Stardew Valley. What’s a few more months for it to be potentially made even better?
Fingers crossed it won’t be too long!
