Stardew Valley is absolutely 2016’s most surprising title so far. The farming game for the PC platform has grown its way into the hearts of gamers around the world, selling more than one million copies already.
Now, its developer, ConcernedApe, has dropped a roadmap for future updates. The plan for version 1.1 lies within, as well as big ticket items for the future of the game. Let’s start with the big stuff.
- Co-op Multiplayer
- Localizing for non-English regions
- Mac/Linux Ports
- Console Ports
Co-op and console ports? Yes! I, for one, feel Stardew Valley would be beautiful on the Nintendo 3DS and PS Vita, too, so here’s hoping that comes down the line.
Chucklefish is set to handle the porting, localization and “technical side of multiplayer,” so expect ConcernedApe to be content focused.
What about version 1.1? He’s the rundown on that.
- More late-game content
- New farm buildings
- New crops
- New artisan goods
- New advanced farming/producing mechanics
- Shane and Emily will be marriage candidates. They will also have more events and dialogue as a result.
- More marriage content for all spouses
- More events for the non-marriage NPC’s
- Improvements/Additions to mining and combat
- Ability to move buildings and other convenience features
- More bug fixes
- More secrets
- More small, fun touches to the world
Color me excited to get farming, marrying, dungeon diving and exploring. I’m especially excited to enjoy the game with friends.
