Stardew Valley Massively Updated with Version 1.1

Stardew Valley Massively Updated with Version 1.1

New farm options, new marriage choices, and more are a part of Stardew Valley's new update.

Indie developer Eric "ConcernedApe" Barone has released the 1.1 update for his hit title, Stardew Valley. Everything fans has loved about the Harvest Moon homage is still there, but Barone has gone back and added more: more farm farm types, more marriage options, divorce, and new buildings.

The changelog for Version 1.1 is rather extensive, but the primary additions are pretty clear. Players can now choose between five different farm types when they start a new game, each tailored towards a different skill area. The standard farm is still available, but now there's a Riverland farm for fishing, a Forest farm if you're a woodsman, the Hilltop farm for miners, and the Wilderness farm that spawns monsters at night if you're a fighter.

Once you've chosen your new farm, you can build the new Shed and Mill buildings, giving you more storage and a way to make your own sugar. The new Cellar house upgrade allows you to store cheese and alcohol to age them, increasing their quality and selling price.

Shane and Emily are now available as marriage options for players who didn't like any of the normal options. I mean, if you want to marry the town drunk, it's all up to y'all. Luckily, there's also a new divorce option for when you realize that marrying Shane is likely a bad idea. Player spouses now have their own outdoor areas and specific behaviors on your farm.

Oh, Shane. [Image via Reddit]

All these changes are alongside many balance tweaks, new weapons, new construction items, and more. It's a pretty big list of change and if you're a Stardew Valley fan, you owe it to yourself to read the notes.

If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
