Chucklefish have been working on their multiplayer update for Stardew Valley. In their latest developer update, they give us a progress of how it’s coming along and what to expect. Players will have the option for marriage when playing with their friends. A playable beta is scheduled for release before the year’s end as well. You can read their entire post below:
Hey everyone! We thought it’d be good to give you a quick status update ahead of the holidays.
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.
A number of people have been curious about the PS Vita port we mentioned way back in January, and I’m happy to announce that a PS Vita port is actually happening! It’ll be available next year, and it’ll have cross-buy too, so if you’ve got Stardew Valley on Playstation 4 you won’t need to buy it again to play it on your PS Vita! However, it’s worth noting that we can’t port the multiplayer update to PS Vita.
ALSO! Stardew Valley is getting more language support! Support for French, Italian, Korean and Turkish will be added in 2018.
Phew, I think that’s just about everything we can talk about for now. 🙂
Thanks for all the support this year! I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday break and a happy start to 2018.
P.S – Oh hey, new site design! It was long overdue for some sprucing up. Let us know what you think!
