Upcoming Stardew Valley update promises new content and new romances0 Comments
Stardew Valley, the "simple farm life" game from developer Eric "ConcernedApe" Barone, took a lot of players by surprise when it launched on Steam earlier this year. It's a fantastically addictive title, very much true to the games it draws inspiration from, but it does suffer from one particular drawback: after players have amassed a large sum of money and built a tremendous self-sustaining farm, there's really very little left to do. Luckily, an upcoming update looks to promise new options for players that seem to have seen everything Stardew Valley has to offer.
According to a post made to the game's official webpage, ConcernedApe is working on the game's update version 1.1, with planned features to include new buildings, crops, artisan goods, farming mechanics, and even the option to romance Emily or Shane. There's more, too, as plans for the update include new combat and mining additions, more non-marriage NPC events, more secrets, and what's broadly being called "late-game content."
The good news doesn't stop there. According to the post, there's more in store for Stardew Valley than just new in-game content, as ConcernedApe has stated that plans for co-op multiplayer, new non-English localization options, merchandise, and ports to consoles and Mac/Linux are all in the works. The update content and the new options are all subject to change, of course, but it's good to know that ConcernedApe and the team at Chucklefish are playing the long game with their fan-favorite title.
