The update Stardew Valley fans on the Switch have been waiting for has finally arrived. Yes, after being released on the PC last month, the Version 1.4 update has now rolled out for Nintendo's hybrid system.
As previously explained, this update adds brand new content and brings with it plenty of quality-of-life features, bug fixes, and optimisation improvements. Here's the announcement from ConcernedApe's Twitter account:
Some of the new content includes a brand new farm map called Four Corners, the addition of fish ponds and new character events. You can see our previous post for more information about what this update has to offer or head over to the Stardew Valley developer blog.
Will you be checking out this new update on Switch? Leave a comment below.
No, not again. Last time I played I was gone for like, a week. This game needs a warning label for how addictive it is.
@Kalmaro Farming General’s Warning - this game may be hazardous to your love life, social life, and everything in your real life.
Welp, time to drop another 100 hours into this game. Between this, Pokemon, Civ 6 and Atlier Ryza I'm glad I have 2 weeks off coming up! I'm gonna be practically glued to my Switch!
@Heavyarms55 Toss Monster Hunter in the pile.... just crossed 105hrs on Shield, 20ish was breeding Sobble for a shiny. 580 hours on MH. At least 250 hours on Civ 6, which I’m about to get back into because of DLC, and I’d say at least 500 on Stardew.....
Think I found the cause of my backlog issues. 🤣 Oh, and 280+ on Diablo 3.... Smh.
Good grief whyyyyy.... I guess I can now check out the new 14 heart spouse event for Alex so I can finally divorce him. xD Might break the 250+ hr mark for this frickin' game in the near future. 👀🧐
P.S. Has anyone read the long list of changes? That's some list. xD
Wow I was just about to get into this game for the first time!
@JayJ Well worth your time! I’ve had trouble getting into Harvest Moon-like games in the past, but this one is so laid back and infectious. Stories are much deeper too.
Without spoiling anything, I’ll toss ya a few tips.... don’t worry/stress your first year or so. There’s no true deadline for anything (besides minor Fetch quests for townsfolk). So just enjoy the game.
Watch the tv forecast and plan to mine on days when it’s rains since you don’t have to worry about watering crops then.
Lastly, fishing is a good source of income during the first year.
Awesome! Looking forward to get back into my digital brewing business
Civ 6 running great now, then this happens. Welp I know how my Xmas break will be spent
I guess it’s going to be a Stardew Christmas for me! Like others here, I’ve put a lot of time into this. Such a charming game.
@Dm9982 Thanks, should help me get started!
I think this holiday season is when I finally get my hands on Stardew Valley. Slept on this one for quite awhile now and I might as well push my current backlog further into the abyss.
Good idea, I waited also to long to buy this gem, didn't regret it
The gift that keeps on giving. These updates always come at perfect times when I’m starting to feel that itch to jump back in.
Good thing I just abandoned it (I loved it, but I have too much backlog and I can't focus), so now when I resume this game it will be the best version yet.
I really would love to play this game with my daughter in the same switch, but we can't
Why do you do this!!! I've just started Terraria and now this update. Time to put my farming boots back on and try that new map Happy holidays farming folks.
I saw that Stardew Valley update was updating when I went to download Puzzle Book (today's free game in the QubicGames promotion). Did not expect that it was THE update.
lol updates are so fun
@Cirrus78 That new map was really meant for multiplayer.
Pretty excited for this!
@Dm9982 Throw Fire Emblem Three Houses into the ring as well as Smash Bros.
@Reigestugatensho FF is in my backlog, amongst so so so many other games. 🤣
Noooo stay away! I wanna have a life! Oh geez I’m gonna toss another 50 hours into this game huh?
@Bermanator Yeah its cool, im on the right one of my kids wants to move to the left and the other to the bottom.
I guess a discount will be coming very soon then...
This game is a masterpiece, I've avoided reading any guides because I love to learn about it myself. It's like a long lost Genesis game. Does it automatically update?
