The Stardew Valley 1.5 update has been in development all year now, so when is it going to be ready for release?

In a recent update over on Twitter, the game's creator Eric 'ConcernedApe' Barone said it's now in the "home stretch". As you might have already worked out, it's a "very big update" so it requires a lot more polishing and bug fixing, but when it does arrive it'll include plenty of surprises.

Some tweets before this one revealed the long-requested split-screen co-op feature would finally be added to the game in this next update. It will support up to four players on some platforms, and two players on other systems.

Throughout the year, other information about version 1.5 has also been revealed. For example, there'll be new end-game content, possibly new areas to visit and even banana trees. You can read about all the previous updates on our Stardew Valley game page.
