Stardew Valley Update 1.5 Is Nearly Here

Stardew Valley Update 1.5 Is Nearly Here
Stardew Valley released well over four years ago and developed Eric “ConcernedApe” Barone hasn’t slowed down with continuing to improve the game and add more features. One of its bigger content updates is version 1.5, and Barone said it’s finally nearing release.

the 1.5 update is in the “home stretch”, it’s a very big update so there is a lot of polishing and bug fixing necessary to make sure it’s ready. It’ll be very fun to share it with all of you in the near future. I think you’ll be really happy and surprised with all the new stuff!

It’s definitely more heavy on the late-game content, but there are some new features/options that you can choose for a new game that might make a fresh run worthwhile

Writing on Twitter, Barone said that his new update is in the “home stretch” of development and that most efforts now are on polishing it and squashing remainnig bugs. He added that new features included will make it worthwhile to run through the game from the beginning, but the majority of the content in the update is meant for endgame players.

Earlier this year, Barone teased exciting new content for Stardew Valley, and an image he shared included a new back door in Willy’s shack. One feature we know for sure is coming to both consoles and PC is split-screen cooperative play. Barone said the total number of players supported could vary depending on the system, possibly with four-player support on some platforms and two-player support on others.

Stardew Valley’s popularity has arguably overtaken that of its inspiration: Harvest Moon. Barone’s project began because he wanted to play something similar to the earlier games in the Harvest Moon series, and it became a runaway success. By early 2020, it had sold 10 mllion copies.
