For many gamers, the second half of 2020 is mainly the launch of the ninth generation platforms or the (hopefully) approching release of Cyberpunk 2077. However, for Stardew Valley fans, the last few months have been about something else: waiting for a new update of this popular game. Perhaps their patience will soon be rewarded. Eric Barone informed on Twitter that work on update 1.5 is already on its last straight. The dev also wants to share further details about this version in the near future.
So far, Eric Barone has not revealed much about update 1.5, but the available scraps of information show that the update may be huge. With its launch we will be able to establish banana plantations, move beds, floating ducks etc. There will also be an option to play with friends in co-op mode on split screen. That's certainly not all, since the developer mentioned the size of the update in the last entry. In addition, in response to a question from one of the fans, he assured them that although version 1.5 will focus on endgame content, there will also be some novelties that will encourage them to start more sessions with Stardew Valley.
It should be noted, that the developer still hasn't given even an approximate release date of the update. What's more, the huge amount of updates also translates into a long time needed for fine-tuning, searching and removing potential bugs, etc. It is possible that we will wait for the release of Stardew Valley 1.5 until next year. Especially since it's not the only project that Barone is currently working on, and he doesn't exclude further development of SV. No wonder, since the game has sold over 10 million copies.
