Signs of life from the Stardew Valley multiplayer mode

Signs of life from the Stardew Valley multiplayer mode”

The "new content" that Barone spoke of was teased back in November and again in December with a tweet that said there would be something included in the multiplayer update for the game's single-player mode as well.

We've been hearing about the multiplayer update coming to indie favorite Stardew Valley for some time now, but details have been scarce.

Barone, the creator of Stardew Valley, shared the below screenshot and message on his Twitter recently. There's four player characters in the shot, and two houses on the same farm. Looks like up to four people will be able to work together via LAN play, and apparently you can be neighbors with your friends.

The game follows a similar template found in Harvest Moon games where you start with a rundown plot of land that you must build up and create a flourishing farm with. In addition. There is also a flamingo scarecrow in the field that appears to be new. Beneath that tweet, Barone later confirmed that the game's multiplayer mode would be available online as well as through LAN.

A tweet that came within the same hour as the multiplayer screenshot elaborated on the multiplayer work that was going on. It is in development for the PlayStation Vita, though that version will not receive the multiplayer update that also adds new content.

Shortly before Christmas, Barone revealed additional content that will be coming along with this multiplayer update, including a new in-game event for winter, new outdoor decorations, new events for NPCs, and a way to respec your profession. This was originally expected to occur late previous year, but was pushed back into the early part of 2018 "in order to make room for polish and QA".
