Chucklefish and ConcernedApe officially announced that Stardew Valley's multiplayer feature is officially online for PC, Mac, and Linux users. The company released a trailer along with some images to show off the possibilities, along with some details as to what you'll be able to do with the new mode. We look forward to having some helping hands and focusing on other fun tasks and adventures with our friends.
- 4 Player Farming – Invite 1-3 players to join you as farmhands, either starting from scratch or diving in from your latest single player save
