Stardew Valley getting another free content update

Version 1.5 announced

Stardew Valley is currently celebrating its 4-year anniversary. Rather than take a much-deserved rest, developer ConcernedApe has taken to Twitter to announce that another free content update is in the works. While we don't have a release date or details, we do know this patch will bump the game up to Version 1.5. Hopefully we get some insight into this patch in the near future.

Stardew Valley creator working on two new projects tied to the game

More to Stardew

ConcernedApe, creator of Stardew Valley, has revealed that he's working on two games that both tie into Stardew Valley in some way. We don't know what platforms these games will come to, but with Stardew Valley being on Switch, we figured it was a good idea to share the details with you. Check out ConcernedApe's full statement on the titles below.

Yes, I'm actually working on a couple of new projects. One takes place in the world of Stardew Valley, but is not a farming game. The other, I'm not 100% sure about the world yet, but it will tie into Stardew Valley in some way.

I see this is blowing up and there are articles coming out, etc.... all I ask is please don't get too hyped at this stage. I want to avoid too much hype or speculation. I'd like to just make whatever game comes naturally to me without too much pressure or expectation.

Retail version of Stardew Valley updated to Version 1.4.4

Time to update

Oizumi Amuzio has updated the retail version of Stardew Valley to Version 1.4.4 in Japan. Wondering what this update does? We are as well, as no patch notes have been shared for the patch. If anything is announced, we'll be sure to add the details to this post.

Stardew Valley hits 10 million units sold worldwide

That's a lot of farmers!

Just a couple weeks ago, Stardew Valley was sitting at the very top of the Switch eShop charts, showing just how much staying power the game has. People on all platforms are enjoying the game, and it keeps growing bigger and bigger. Developer Concerned Ape has shown just how big the game has gotten by revealing total sales for the title.

Across all versions of the game released, Stardew Valley now sits at 10 million units sold. Concerned Ape spent 4 years of his life making this game my himself, and while it certainly pushed him to his limits, I'd say the hard work ended up being more than worth it!

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.
