An update on the much desired Stardew Valley multiplayer feature has been released via the game’s developer blog.
According to the game creator Eric Barone, the multiplayer is on track for a spring beta.
The farming sim has been wildly popular, and this is something the fans have been clamoring for. Meanwhile, the game is also getting ready to give us a new updated sign feature (pictured above).
Work on the new features is done, and we’ve sent all the new text off to be translated into the different languages. Meanwhile, we are working on bug fixes. Once we’ve received the translated text and integrated it back into the game, we’ll begin a serious QA phase involving thorough testing of all new features in both multiplayer and single player contexts. When that is finished, the update should be ready for a public beta. I am still shooting for a spring release for the beta.
When the beta gets closer to launch, I’ll fill you guys in on more specifics as to how multiplayer will work, as well as a more complete list of the new features in the update.
I’ll also be sure to let you guys know as soon as we’ve determined a more concrete timetable for release.
Stardew Valley is currently available for the Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, and Nintendo Switch.
