Stardew Valley is headed for a big update as ConcernedApe is looking to put some polishing touches on the game and add new content.
On one side of the spectrum, you have Bethesda, happy to release a game with more bugs than pixels on the screen and on the opposite side stands Eric "ConcernedApe" Barone, with Stardew Valley. The game is easily one of the most beloved titles in this generation, praised for its polish, among numerous other things.
Barone is of a different opinion though and the man is about to drop the update 1.4 on 26 November 2019 and it is this patch where he aims to polish the game to the degree he always wanted to. The solo developer admitted there are a few bugs that still linger in the game and these are in his crosshairs, to be dealt with once the update arrives.
Furthermore, there are apparently "a lot of weird or annoying things about the control & feel of the game" that ConcernedApe is looking iron out, in addition to many quality of life features that will Stardew Valley feel even more seamless.
A lot of new content is also on the way as Barone stated "nearly every aspect of the game" is about to be "expanded or improved upon in some way". He was pretty tight-lipped about those additions though, in order not to reveal too much or spoil something for the fans.
There are two highlights he did reveal teasers for - Wild Bait will not be as useless anymore as it will offer an opportunity to catch double fish while spouses will gain a new unique 14-heart event after marriage.
Console and mobile players will have to wait a bit longer for this update but they are getting 1.3 with multiplayer in the meantime. According to Barone, PC players will keep getting the updates first in the future, with console and mobile following soon after.
