Good news for farming fans itching for more content — Eric "ConcernedApe" Barone has announced the Stardew Valley 1.5 Content Update is coming. He hasn't just announced this next batch of content for his popular farming RPG — it's already in development.
If you haven't yet played Stardew Valley, you're missing out on one of the greatest farming RPGs in recent memory. Much like Harvest Moon or Animal Crossing, players are plopped down in a town with a lot of freedom to play however they'd like to and at their own pace.
Now, the game's developer ConcernedApe has announced that the next free content update is on the way! The news arrived just a couple of days after the 1.4 update was made available on iOS.
"Thanks everyone for the Stardew Valley 4-year anniversary wishes," ConcernedApe said in a tweet. "It's been a pleasure, and I look forward to another great year! Now that 1.4 is out on all intended platforms, I'd like to announce that there will be another free content update (1.5)..it's currently in the works!"
The Stardew Valley 1.5 Content Update and the Future of the Franchise
Aside from the Stardew Valley 1.5 Content Update announcement, ConcernedApe also took a few minutes to answer questions from fans.
One of the first things he confirmed is that there are "no plans" for paid DLC or anything similar making its way to Stardew Valley. He did, however, take a moment to remind people that he is working on creating and releasing more games in the future.
He also took the time to address some fan requests, and there's a bit of disappointment ahead. Split-screen co-op won't be possible for technical reasons. Similar technical troubles are also preventing any future updates of the PS Vita port; the changes to the game's code in Content Update 1.3 lowered the overall optimization and the PS Vita's hardware just can't run it smoothly.
If you'd like to grab the Stardew Valley 1.5 Content Update, you'll probably have a while to wait. In the meantime, you can get Stardew Valley for the PC on Steam, the Humble Store, or DRM-free on GOG for $14.99 or your regional equivalent. Console gamers can get it for the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, or PlayStation 4 at the same price. Mobile gamers can get it for Android at the Play Store and iOS at iTunes for $7.99. And don't forget that you can also play it on your Tesla.
