Released for the Switch back in October 2017, developers of Stardew Valley promised multiplayer for the game. In a blog post on the game’s site, the developers have given us an update on the multiplayer development progress.
Things are coming fine and dandy in terms of additional content, although the multiplayer beta that was originally scheduled before the year ends is going to be pushed to the first quarter of next year.
So, multiplayer is coming along nicely! Tom is working on implementing marriage between players, and recently finished up working on festivals. Now you’ll have someone to dance with at the Flower Dance, even if you’ve yet to win over any of the residents of Pelican Town.
We had been planning to launch a multiplayer beta before the end of this year, but we’re pushing that beta back to Q1 2018 in order to make room for polish and QA.
ConcernedApe is working on a new content to be released along with the multiplayer update! We can’t say much about it yet, so I’ll just leave this screenshot here.
