Stardew Valley is one of the biggest games out there today. Despite the game coming out basically two years ago. The simple use of a very open 2D world and a bunch of things to do has led to hundreds of hours of gameplay for players. And now, it’s set to get its biggest update ever via version 1.3. This will add multiplayer to the title, which is a big deal considering all you can do on your own.
The creator of the game posted a big update on what’s going on with the feature, check it out:
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.
That’s right, we may be getting a beta for the multiplayer feature soon. It makes sense that he’d do that, as Stardew Valley hasn’t had anything like that before, and testing it would be essential before millions of players come and try it out for themselves.
Hopefully, everything will be worked out soon so that it can be implemented into the game and it can grow even bigger.
