Adorable retro sandbox Stardew Valley is releasing a boxed collector’s edition today. Expect the original game, plus a soundtrack disc (hey Justin), a guidebook, and a map. OK, the map part is pretty cool. Chucklefish’s posted price is $29.99 on both core consoles in North America, with rollouts across the global later this week.
The main reason we keep an eye on Stardew Valley is that it’s been planned for multiplayer for over a year now, but it’s taking foreeeeeever. It was meant to launch in October with the 1.1 patch but didn’t. In December, console launches came and went. In February, Stardew creator Eric Barone revealed the game will land on the Switch, and indeed the Switch will see multiplayer after PC and before the other consoles — but still not soon. The update won’t even be ready in time for summer, Chucklefish said at the time.
And so… we wait. Welp, here’s a new trailer to tide you over at least.
