Stardew Valley makes its way to Tesla vehicles

The horsepower!

Tesla vehicles offer their drivers all sorts of high-end, top-notch features. Among the litany of unique tech is the option to play games on the giant navigation screens in Tesla cars. Only a handful of games are available, but today that list expands with Stardew Valley.

Elon Musk himself has confirmed that the most recent firmware update includes the hit role-playing/simulation game, which is probably something you shouldn't spend time with while driving. Pull over and enjoy some relaxing farming while you're charging up instead.

Stardew Valley's upcoming Version 1.4 update fully detailed

Stardewing it bigtime

We've talked a bit about the massive Version 1.4 update for Stardew Valley already, but today it has become available on PC. While we wait for the Switch version, a ton of details on what the update includes have been shared. You can check out the official patch notes here, or read up on a few of the juicier details below.

There is a new end-game mystery, involving an abandoned building…

Added some more character events… including a new 14-heart event for every spouse. I wanted to show a little more about what each spouse is up to after marriage, and give you another thing to look forward to after marriage.

Added Fish Ponds, a new farm building that allows you to raise fish and harvest a variety of items from them. Most fish will produce roe, which can be processed further in a preserves jar. Some fish produce other things, though, and many also produce secondary items that can be useful.

Added a new farm map: Four Corners

Four Corners is perfect for the new separate money option in multiplayer, since each farmer can have their own quadrant to live in. But it’s also fun for single player or cooperative farms. Each quadrant has a different perk, but the intruding cliffs reduce your total farming area. Another interesting feature is that the greenhouse, farm cave and pet area are located in the center of the farm.

Stardew Valley's upcoming Version 1.4 update detailed

Quality of life updates and more

Stardew Valley is going to get an update to Version 1.4 on PC come Nov. 26th, 2019, and Switch shortly thereafter. While we wait for the Switch release date, we can check out a full rundown of what this update has to offer. Read the full summary of info below!

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. What I mean by that is that I wanted to fix all the bugs that have been lingering in the game, to fix a lot of weird or annoying things about the controls & feel of the game, and add in a lot of “quality of life” features that will make the game more seamless to play. I feel pretty confident that this goal has been met!

Content-wise, nearly every aspect of the game has been expanded or improved upon in some way.

One small example is the Wild Bait…which used to be essentially worthless… but now gives you a chance to catch double fish.

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:

There is more end-game stuff like that to keep things going a little further after you’ve completed everything. I don’t want to spoil very much, so you’ll just have to wait and see for yourself!

1.4 is currently in the final stages, just doing some last minute tweaks and fixing the rare bug…

But I’m at a point where I’m ready to announce a release date: The 1.4 update will come to PC on November 26th

My goal is for the update to release on consoles & mobile simultaneously a few weeks after PC. Once 1.4 has a little more testing on these platforms, I hope to give a solid release date for them.

Stardew Valley language update now available

New languages added

Stardew Valley has gotten a new update that's focused on adding in new languages. Players can now enjoy the game in Korean, Turkish, French, Italian, and Hungarian. This update also includes a few bug fixes, but specifics weren't shared.

Stardew Valley creator shares insight into the upcoming Version 1.4 patch

A little bit of everything

Stardew Valley's creator is currently working on a Version 1.4 update for the game, and it sounds like it's going to expand the experience in quite a few ways. Check out what developer ConcernedApe had to say in an interview with USGamer below.

The new 1.4 update does add some depth to post-marriage life... some additions that I'm proud of and I hope are very heartwarming for players... but I know there will always be more that can be done.

I've been unofficially calling 1.4 the "everything" update because it touches pretty much every aspect of the game in some way or another. One of my major goals was to add in a lot of "quality of life" features that make the game more convenient and effortless to play. There are some really simple things that were missing from the game that really improve the experience, like being able to press TAB on PC to switch from one row of your inventory to the next, or to be able to hover over an item and get an indication as to whether it's required for any of the community center bundles or not.

There are lots of things like that in this update... once players experience them, I think they'll wonder how they ever managed to play the game before! From a big picture, I see 1.4 as bringing a whole new level of polish to Stardew Valley, as well as adding in lots of rich and rewarding content to the game.

Stardew Valley creator now self-publishing the game on Switch

Stardewing it on his own

ConcernedApe, the man who created Stardew Valley, is now the publisher of the title on Switch. When the game first released for Switch, publishing was handled by Chucklefish Games. That is no longer the case, as the publishing deal between ConcernedApe and Chucklefish Games has been cancelled. Support for the game will continue as usual, so don't worry about any troubles ahead.
