If you loved playing Stardew Valley and got bored of it sometime later, you might want to consider reinstalling it. The game developers released a new 1.5 update – the game’s biggest patch to date – that added an entirely new island full of new things to explore.
The new place is called Ginger Island that is dedicated to experienced players. It features plenty of late-game content including new locations, dialogue, events, minigames, and quests. It also introduced a new volcano dungeon – an ever-changing end-game area that will serve Stardew Valley fans hours of fun times while trying to get through it and uncover its secrets.
In addition to a new area, there’s also plenty of other additions. For example, the 1.5 patch adds a new type of farm that’s set on the beach. It will allow players to find some new places to fish and forage, however, since the area is sandy, players will have to figure out new ways to water their crops.
Lastly, there’s a new split-screen mode that will allow players to play Stardew Valley co-op locally. It will allow playing with up to four players on the same PC (or console), making adventuring with friends or your family more comfortable.
PC players can jump right into the 1.5 patch since it’s now live. However, console players might need to wait a few months. Developers of Stardew Valley said that the 1.5 update will reach the console version of the game sometime in 2021.
