If there’s anything else Stardew Valley lovers need, it’s extra Stardew — and that’s now the case for any person taking part in the comfy existence sim on iOS or Android.
The sport is to be had on on the subject of each and every platform in the market (individually I play it at the Nintendo Transfer, which is best) however Stardew’s cell lovers had been left looking ahead to a big content material replace that hit consoles again in 2021. Over the weekend, Stardew Valley patch 1.5 rolled out for the sport’s Android and iOS ports, bringing a ton of latest stuff to do with it.
The replace isn’t any small factor. In case you haven’t performed but, truthful caution that there are likely a couple of spoilers in right here if you happen to like to find the old fashioned recreation international’s secrets and techniques organically.
Patch 1.5 provides so much, however probably the most maximum notable additions are a brand new seaside farm format, a slew of latest NPCs and enemies, ostriches (as a result of ostriches), and a complete new location — Ginger Island. The entire record of latest 1.5 content material can also be discovered right here, however why ruin it for your self?
This final content material push is most probably it for the sport, which has offered greater than 20 million copies since launching in 2016. Stardew Valley’s author Eric Barone is already at paintings on Haunted Chocolatier, his subsequent hit indie recreation to-be. There’s no anticipated free up date but, however Barone got to work at the recreation again in 2020, so a release in past due 2023 or a while in 2024 will not be off the desk.
One thing attention-grabbing that units Stardew’s luck with the exception of a large number of different hit video games is that its hype has handiest snowballed over time: In 2022, years after its release, the sport used to be promoting sooner than it did nearer to its debut. That’s most probably because of the large quantity of word-of-mouth love in the market for Stardew’s captivating international and the spectacular intensity it provides for a recreation that’s ostensibly a farming sim.
