ConcernedApe has been tinkering away on a notable 1.4 update for Stardew Valley. There’s still no word on when players will be able to access it, but USgamer managed to get a few words out of creator Eric Barone about what to expect.

Barone shared the following:

Stardew Valley has received a new update on Switch. All players can now access version 1.3.33.

According to Chucklefish, the update improves performance, makes a small tweak, and implements a couple of fixes. We have the full patch notes below.

Stardew Valley was finally updated on Switch this week, bringing along the big multiplayer feature. Have a look at some footage showing it off below.

Stardew Valley developer ConcernedApe provided a big update on the future of Stardew Valley and more in a blog post today.

While ConcernedApe has been working on an entirely different project, it has now been put on hold. That’s because a 1.4 update is in the works that will add even more content to the game for free. After that, a team will be formed so that the game can continue to get even more content while ConcernedApe shifts back to the new game.

Here’s the full report from ConcernedApe:

ConcernedApe has announced that the long-awaited multiplayer update for Stardew Valley arrives on Switch this week. Version 1.3 will be live on December 12.

When playing with others, Stardew Valley will support online voice chat as well as a new chat box feature that has colored text and close to 200 custom emojis. It’s also possible for 2-4 Switch consoles to connect via local wireless and play together over a short distance without the need for a Nintendo Switch Online account.

The multiplayer update for Stardew Valley is one step closer to landing on Switch. Today, Chucklefish confirmed that it’s now in submission.

At the start of October, it was announced that the big update was in the QA phase. Once it’s been approved by Nintendo, it’ll be ready for release. We could be seeing it before the year ends, but early 2019 is also a possibility.

Stardew Valley launched on Switch one year ago. To celebrate, developer ConcernedApe shared a message with Switch owners through the system’s news feature.

Here’s what was written:

While fans have been eagerly awaiting the big multiplayer update for Stardew Valley on Switch since it was last mentioned two months ago, developer ConcernedApe has given insight into the situation that indicates that the patch might be dropping somewhat soon.

Today, ConcernedApe took to Twitter to confirm that the update in question has been submitted to Nintendo for QA. If everything goes smoothly, this should open the door to the announcement of a concrete release date in the near future.

ConcernedApe published a trailer for the upcoming multiplayer update in Stardew Valley. Take a look at the video below.

No word yet on when Stardew Valley multiplayer is Switch bound, but we’re one step closer since the PC, Mac, and Linux versions were given a date of August 1. It’ll be on Switch “soon”.

Stardew Valley made significant strides with multiplayer this week. While the major feature isn’t ready for Switch yet, a beta version was finally widely released on Steam. Publisher Chucklefish showed off some extensive footage on Twitch today, and you can watch the full recording below.
