Stardew Valley's Massive Endgame Update is Nearly Here

By Alistair Jones on at

Stardew Valley’s long-awaited 1.4 update arrives later this month. In a blog post published last night, developer Eric Barone confirmed the update’s release date and showed off some of the new features on their way to the game.

Barone says that he’s achieved his goals when it comes to polish and bug-squashing, but more importantly, “content-wise, nearly every aspect of the game has been expanded or improved upon in some way.”

Some of those changes are pretty small, like a tweak to fishing that will let you catch two fish at once if you’re using a specific bait, but some - like new 14-heart events for your in-game spouse - are much bigger. Barone says he doesn’t want to spoil the changes, but that “there is more end-game stuff like that to keep things going a little further after you've completed everything.” On PC, there’ll also be a new screenshot button that lets you take a picture of your entire farm at once.

The new update has been in the works for a while, but Barone confirms it’s now in its final stages, and that it will arrive on PC on November 26. Console and mobile players will have to wait a little longer, but the aim is for all other versions of the update to release “simultaneously a few weeks after PC.”
