Stardew Valley: the game that keeps on giving. Just as I began to think that this indie gem was great enough, Eric Barone blessed us farmers with a significant update. This latest drop of content is huge, with the long-awaited introduction of online multiplayer alongside the announcement of even more exciting features.
This update has a focus on bug-fixing in order to further polish this game to a mirror shine. Personally, I haven’t experienced any major bugs, and I’m sure this will be reassuring for people to hear. Personally, I’m pretty excited about the update regarding the use of ‘Wild Bait’. I always found it pretty much worthless in the game and not really worth the time to unlock. Now, however, it will allow you to potentially attract double the amount of fish – finally, it has a use!
Now, if you play multiplayer, then this update might interest you quite a bit. A new map will be available, called ‘Four Corners’. This will allow players to split money, so you can have a separate income from your friends – honestly, this is a lifesaver if your friends spend all your money. Truth be told, I don’t know why this wasn’t included sooner, but maybe my friends are just terrible.
A new option to screenshot your entire farm has also been added for those that love to share pictures of their farms with friends.
Finally, there are some smaller benefits to this update such as new customisation options: these range from new hairstyles to new farm building options and fishing ponds. A new option to screenshot your entire farm has also been added for those that love to share pictures of their farms with friends.
And, drum roll please… stackable signs and chests at last! No more wasting space, hallelujah! This seems like such a minor thing, but I’m probably the most excited about it because my farm will no longer look cluttered with ugly chests.
If you’ve never played Stardew Valley, this seems like the perfect opportunity to try it since the gameplay will vastly improve. But if you love the game already, get ready to love it even more.
