Stardew Valley multiplayer arrives – in the creator’s house
Sorry for the headline tease, but we couldn’t resist. As Stardew Valley fans — or “Dews” as they call themselves — eagerly wait for the long-promised multiplayer update, creator Eric Barone teased the community by saying that he was enjoying it in the privacy of his own home.
“Four-player Stardew Valley LAN party at my house,” Barone tweeted. “It’s really fun. It still needs some work, but the underlying network code is solid. Being in the same room and yelling at each other about what to do next, or if anyone has any stone, is great fun. Can’t wait to share this. Also, I’m finished with the new content and have shifted all my attention to getting multiplayer ready!”
Barone confirmed that players can indeed marry each other in the game. The last we heard, Stardew Valley’s multiplayer mode was slated to arrive in early 2018. The PC version is scheduled to get the mode first.
