The Stardew Valley Expanded mod has gotten a big update and new farm too

You may have heard that Stardew Valley had had another huge update in December bringing a new farm map and some cool endgame secrets. It's not the just the main game though, some of Stardew's biggest mods were updated on the same day, including one of my personal favorites, Stardew Valley Expanded. This giant mod has also gotten its share of new characters, content, and…

Stardew Valley’s new beach farm is worth starting over for

The huge new 1.5 update to beloved farming town simulation Stardew Valley surprise launched this week. I already told you about on Wednesday, but I've played a good several hours of it now so I'm going to tell you more about it because gosh it's so good. The new beach farm is worth starting a new save file for, as are all the other cool…

Surprise, Stardew Valley update 1.5 is out right now on PC

Now hold up just a second, Stardew Valley. I've already worked out what I'm playing during RPS's holiday hibernation and you're just going to muscle in by dropping that big 1.5 update today? Yup, you sure are. We found out earlier today that the new update would definitely bring a beach farm. Well, now it's out for all us PC players to download and load…

Stardew Valley’s next update will add a beach farm

Beach farm! Beach farm! Beach farm! I might just be overexcited because I'm playing a lot of Stardew Valley at the moment, but developer ConcernedApe has revealed the game's next update will come with a brand new farmstead - the beach! It might sound like a nice little seaside getaway, but this farm seems like a tough one to get started with - mostly because…

Stardew Valley update 1.5 is in the “home stretch” says ConcernedApe

According to developer ConcernedApe, we're not too far away from my yearly incentive to start a new farm in Stardew Valley. Update 1.5 for the farm and life simulation game is coming right along and is in the "home stretch" he says. ConcernedApe has been tossing out bits of info about what the update will include for a few months, but we'll get to see…

Stardew Valley’s next update will let your friends farm in split-screen

Somehow, there is still more work to be done on Stardew Valley before Eric "ConcernedApe" Barone is finished farming. Update 1.5 has been ticking along for some time, and now it appears the next big pastoral patch will add split-screen farming for up to four players. While Stardew's had co-op for some time now, you'll soon be able to make sure none of your fellow…

Stardew Valley 2 still isn’t out of the question

Charming farming game Stardew Valley was great at launch and it just keeps getting better with each of the free updates. With yet another of the kind, Stardew Valley 1.5, currently in the works, I've wondered how we can expect continued development. Developer ConcernedApe says that he isn't ready to commit to any specific next step for Stardew, but he's also not ready to be…

Stardew Valley’s coronavirus mod finds dark comedy in the pandemic

We have generally avoided posting about things that exist in the intersection of "games, things that are enjoyable and we love" and "the global pandemic, a thing which is terrible", mostly because this intersection is quite weird and grim. I am, however, making an exception today in order to highlight a mod that adds both a slight pandemic slant to Stardew Valley, and a good…

Feature: Tread gently, for you tread on my cactus

New cactus mod for Stardew Valley has saved my chickens from a life of misery

Fear not, readers: I am still planning to turn my Stardew Valley farm into a battery chicken farm but progress has been slow on that front. Partly because I want to make it into a column called "Mother Cluckers" (which I, like your embarrassing uncle at every Sunday roast dinner, think is an extremely funny pun), but mostly because there are too many mods. And…

Stardew Valley’s next update will add “a significant new piece of endgame content”

If Stardew Valley were a flower it would be a perennial, constantly coming back each year with new blooms. Not long after releasing the massive 1.4 update that left a mark on every part of the game, developer ConcernedApe announced that he'd be working on yet another free content update. Over four years on, he's still got plans for new additions, which will include some…

Feature: Agrarian to go

Best Stardew Valley mods

I’m once again hacking my way through the undergrowth on the hunt for mods. This time it’s Stardew Valley, the game where you begin with a run-down farm and simply try and make it work. If you’re not terribly good at farming, don’t worry. I’m here to help. I’ve been picking games recently where the modders have expanded tools and mechanics in order to craft…

Feature: Legally distinct from the bird hole

I am going to become a battery chicken farmer in Stardew Valley

I am not a very good Stardew Valley farmer. Really experienced players, who take their farming seriously, they know what's up. They make their own almanacs, they intensively farm pumpkins or sunflowers to get the best yeilds, and they know how to place sprinklers for peak watering efficiency. I do not know any of those things. My cruel predicament in Stardew is that really I…

Local man becomes Harvey from Stardew Valley to get his wife’s attention

I'll cop to the fact that Peter Chiykowski is only a local man if you, like him, live somewhere in Scotland, and on top of that, I actually suspect Peter may be having a little joke with us. But still, I found this tale of love and loss in Stardew Valley quite heartwarming. It all began back in February, when Chiykowski's wife discovered the inescapable…

Farmer recreates Nazca Lines in Stardew Valley, has my enduring respect

I first learnt about the Nazca Lines when I was quite small. There were a couple of Nancy Drew books knocking around at home, and one of the mysteries involved the Nazca Lines as a pivotal part of the solution. At the time, and because they were in a book, I assumed that they couldn't possibly be real - that nobody would make huge works…

Stardew Valley democratically decides to add banana “trees” next update

There was never really any question, was there? In the hierarchy of fruit popularity, bananas are right up there with apples and strawberries - not particularly exciting, but safe. Reliable. Always there when you need 'em. So when Stardew Valley asked players what fruit they'd like hanging out on their farms in the update 1.5, there was only ever one answer. Passionfruit was robbed.

This modder animated tons of furniture, food, and drinks in Stardew Valley

I'm always here for a nice Stardew Valley mod, especially one that's easy to slip into an existing save file without the pressure to start a brand new farm. Modder "Gervig91" has been hard at work on a suite of new mods that make a bunch of items in town just a bit more lively and sparkly. They've made animated versions of many of Stardew's…

Modding Stardew Valley to make it feel like Animal Crossing

I am not myself an Animal Crossing fan (or a "Crossie", as I believe they like to be called), but I know the game is big news at the moment, because approximately the entire rest of the RPS staff have been going on about it. They're all at it, and it's like people talking in a secret language I don't understand. Someone please buy and…

I am in awe of this Stardew Valley player’s one great trick to remember how many seeds they need

If you've ever made cautious forays into the online communities for Stardew Valley, you will know they are intimidating and inspiring in equal measure. Players post screenshots of their megafarms: "Autumn farm, year 6," they'll say, alongside a photo of vast fields of pumpkins, the space usage finely tuned to produce maximum yield for minimum effort. "Summer Year 4," another will announce, showing a holding…
