Stardew Valley Multiplayer Update Finally Has a PC Release Date

Play with your friends, live your best life.

The multiplayer mode for Stardew Valley is coming out on August 1, but only for PC. The highly-anticipated multiplayer update will be arriving at a later time for the Switch, PS4, and Xbox One versions of the game.

The multiplayer update for Stardew Valley has been in beta for some time, but with news that it's leaving beta and into public release, Stardew Valley released a new trailer to celebrate. You can see it below:

The multiplayer update lets you and three friends join up on a farm, living as neighbors in cabins and do pretty much everything you can do in the game already, but together with friends online. Farm the land, go out to the town, or even get married to each other. Just know Stardew Valley doesn't allow you to marry everyone you have a fancy for. The multiplayer emphasizes cooperation so it's all about living with your friends in harmony.

The multiplayer update also has communication tools like chat boxes and Emjoi support, so you're not just voiceless farmers with no mouths (and the desire to scream).

Stardew Valley is a farm/life sim where players set up in the eponymous town after they inherit their plot of land from their grandfather. The players then get to live their new life however they want in charming fashion. It's one of the best sim games in the Animal Crossing mold and a hit on consoles like the Nintendo Switch.

We'll have more details for you when the Stardew Valley multiplayer update officially comes out on PC.
