Independent developer Eric “Concerned Ape” Barone has released the big 1.5 update for Stardew Valley.
The new update is now available for Windows PC users while console players on Nintendo Switch and such will have to wait until 2021. Barone has released a pre-release build to “some prominent modders” so that they can get their mods compatible with the new build.
Stardew Valley’s big 1.5 update brings with it an entirely new Beach Farm type of farm, banana trees, the option to move your bed, a new door offered in Willy’s shop, Advanced Game Options when setting up your new game, and more.
Here’s a brief, spoiler-free rundown of what to expect in the update:
- New people to meet
- New goals
- Many new items
- A new type of quest
- A new farm layout
- New character events
- A new Community Upgrade
- Home renovations (after you’ve fully upgraded your house)
- Ducks can now swim
- You can sit in chairs
- You can move your bed
- Fish Tanks
- A bunch of new furniture items as well as new furniture types like wall sconces
- New secrets
- 9 new music tracks
- And so much more… you’ll just have to see, I can’t bear to spoil it
