, in its upcoming version 1.5 update, will add splitscreen co-op to both console and PC.Announced by Eric Barone, the creator of Stardew Valley, there will be up to 4-player splitscreen co-op on PC, but “on some other platforms it might be limited to 2.”
This update will also allow for players to move their bed, and Barone teased a peaceful scene on a beach with a player fishing and ducks hanging about.
Online multiplayer was added to Stardew Valley beginning in 2018, and this new update will give players even more options to play one of our 11 Calming Games to Help You Relax together.
Even though Barone is continuing to update Stardew Valley, which was originally released in 2016, he has begun teasing his next two games, which are still a bit of ways away. One of them is said to take place in the world of Stardew Valley, but is not a farming game, and the other is said to tie into the game in some way.
We re-reviewed Stardew Valley in 2018 and said it “is a beautiful, fun game that, when all of its parts are pulled together, make for a wonderful countryside adventure. Whether it’s rainy, sunny, snowy, or dusted with pollen drifts through the air, each day offers an abundance of great activities ready to be collected or mastered and new friendships waiting to be made. Even 100 hours in with three in-game years in the books, I still feel like I have so many mysteries to discover, and plenty of items to collect.”
