Stardew Valley Multiplayer Mode Previewed in New Tweet From Creator

Here's a look at the multiplayer mode for Stardew Valley.

Stardew Valley's hugely anticipated multiplayer expansion is still awaiting a beta release sometime in Q1 2018. In the meantime, the game's creator Eric "ConcernedApe" Barone teased a new screenshot of a four-player LAN actually running in the game.

"4-player Stardew Valley LAN at my house... it's really fun. It still needs some work, but the underlying network code is solid," wrote Barone.

The screenshot shows off four players in a field working together. There are also two cabins present, including one that's made of stone. So perhaps you'll be able to live near your friends online. Maybe a couple of them are even married to one another considering that's another new feature in the upcoming multiplayer mode. Who knows really?

In a following tweet, Barone gave an update about the upcoming single-player content coming to Stardew Valley. He says that he's finished with the new content and focusing fully on multiplayer. Planned single-player content include new winter town events, signs, outdoor decorations, and the ability to re-spec professions.

Please keep your eyes peeled for the multiplayer beta and full release of the mode expected sometime this year.
