Properly, probably take that with a pinch of salt. Eric “ConcernedApe” Barone’s upcoming operate on the charming farming life-style sim will not include the sum of all issues. But that is what the Stardew Valley developer has begun calling the 1.four update, and he’s not precisely incorrect. From fishponds to marriage, and dozens of essential tiny excellent of life tweaks in amongst, extremely tiny is going to waste when Stardew Valley’s subsequent important patch hits. Anytime that is, of course.
We’ve recognized a couple of issues about Stardew’s lengthy-anticipated huge 1.four update for a even though now. Fishponds, and the aquatic economy that comes with them, have been shown off just final month. We also know you will not longer have to share a bank account in multiplayer, but you can share a new 4 Corners map created expressly for multi-farm mundanity.
In conversation with USGamer, Barone announced that an overhaul to married life is coming – improvements to a program he hears players normally really feel is rather half-baked suitable. The institution of marriage as a fundamentally flawed entity, you say? Ah, Barone, now you are speaking my language.
That is an awful lot of stuff to cram into 1 update. But there’s even additional apart from, as Barone explained that no stone will be left unturned by the 1.four update.
“I’ve been unofficially calling 1.four the “everything” update mainly because it touches quite significantly each and every aspect of the game in some way or a further. A single of my important ambitions was to add in a lot of “quality of life” characteristics that make the game additional easy and effortless to play.”
“There are some actually easy issues that have been missing from the game that actually enhance the encounter, like becoming in a position to press TAB on Computer to switch from 1 row of your inventory to the subsequent, or to be in a position to hover more than an item and get an indication as to whether or not it is essential for any of the neighborhood center bundles or not.”
Altogether, Barone believes 1.four will bring “a complete new level of polish” to Stardew Valley. He desires you to log in and wonder how you ever played the game ahead of the update. Offered that there’s nonetheless no release date in sight for 1.four, we’ll just have to deal with the game as it stands.
Sorry, Eric. Take all the time you require.
