Stardew Valley drops massive update, will keep you busy for hours

Stardew Valley drops massive update, will keep you busy for hours

Stardew Valley players can now enjoy Update 1.6.4 on PC which brings a wealth of new content to the game.

It was just last month that developer Eric ‘ConcernedApe’ Barone dropped the long-awaited Update 1.6 for Stardew Valley on PC.

Years in the making, the release of the update saw Stardew Valley’s player count surge to an all-time high, and understandably so.

The update added new festivals and events, including the spring Desert Festival and SquidFest, in addition to a new farm type known as Meadowlands Farm.

NPC dialogue was expanded, players gained the ability to own multiple pets, booksellers were altered to visit your town more frequently, mystery boxes were added, and that’s not to mention the new crops, home renovations, and animal breeds.

All in all, there was plenty to keep players busy for quite some time and yet, an enormous heap of bonus content just landed courtesy of Update 1.6.4.

Take a look at the delightful Stardew Valley in action below.

Update 1.6.4 is available to download now and it contains plenty of new features to delight players.

The update adds 20 alternate mine layouts in addition to 20 new volcano mine layouts. The former unlock once you’ve reached the bottom of the mines whilst the latter will unlock after you’ve opened the shortcut between the caldera and volcano entrance.

Also added in the update are fish frenzies and four new fairy styles. A new cutscene has also been created that’ll play when you’ve helped your neighbours grow their family to the max.

You can now place eight additional non-fish items into fish tanks, the Raccoon Shop now includes a trade for mystery boxes and golden mystery boxes, vinegar can be poured onto trees to prevent moss, and the shaving enchantment now causes tree-specific drops.

Outside of the new content, translations have been updated, a number of balance changes have been made, as have several visual and quality-of-life improvements.

“Two inappropriate names” have been added to the excluded list for the name generator, and a whole bunch of gameplay and cosmetic fixes have been made.

You can view the full patch notes here to see all that’s been altered and fixed.

The update is available on PC now. The console version of Update 1.6 remains awaiting a release date.
