Stardew Valley is Getting New End-Game Content, Festivals, and 8-Player Multiplayer in Update 1.6

Stardew Valley developer ConcernedApe has revealed a host of new features coming to the game as part of its next major update.

After teasing Stardew Valley players about the potential additions being made to the game as part of its upcoming update 1.6, developer Eric “ConcernedApe” Barone has taken to social media platform X to elaborate to confirm some of the new features coming to the game.

Update 1.6 is slated to be a major one for Stardew Valley, bringing with it a host of new content, especially surrounding end-game quests. Players who decide to side with Joja throughout their time with the game will find new end-game quests. There will also be other new content which expands on each of the game’s skill areas.

The update is also bringing support for up to 8 player multiplayer to the PC version of Stardew Valley, along with the addition of a new major festival and two new mini festivals. All in all, there will be over 100 new lines of dialogue added to the game to its various villagers, and there will be a new type of reward for completing billboard quests.

Alongside update 1.6 for Stardew Valley, Barone is also currently working on Haunted Chocolatier, which is still going to take some time to release. Stardew Valley is available on iOS, Android, PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
