Game update: “Stardew Valley” multiplayer mode

ConcernedApe and Chucklefish Games finally bring multiplayer with a host of other features to the feel-good farm/adventure simulator Stardew Valley.

Despite not having played a Harvest Moon game, the concept of Stardew Valley of doing farm work, building relationships, mining, fishing, house expansion, and even combat in a beautiful pixel art world has always had a tranquil appeal to me. Now with the new update that allows online co-op play, the proposition is even more interesting, although I’m still waiting for local multiplayer.

Playing as the host, one can invite up to three friends who can help out with farming and all other kinds of work and play. All players share the same pool of money and work together on the same farm. Everything, including the main storylines, is shared, but each player still has their private inventory, skills, achievements, collections, relationships, quests, and crafting/cooking recipes. Marrying each other is also possible, while communicating via the chatbox should make things easier, too. It’s certainly a great addition to a game that has been going strong for over 2 years. At the moment, the multiplayer feature has only been added for PC owners, including cross-play between the GOG and Steam versions. But the update for console ports is in the making as well.
