Stardew Valley's Upcoming Patch, Update 1.5, Will Add New End-Game Content
The free update was teased by the developer will a picture of a new, mysterious door.
Stardew Valley's 1.5 update will add a "significant new piece of end-game content" plus other new additions as well. In a tweet, developer Eric Barone, also known as ConcernedApe, teased the update that was previously announced when the 1.4 update was released. We can see a new mysterious back door in Willy's shack that wasn't there before as part of the tease. Barone said the update is progressing well, but we will have to wait for more specific details.
In an update, Barone said that Stardew Valley 1.5 may still release in 2020 on PC, though other platforms will have to wait for early 2021.
Stardew Valley 1.5 update... notice anything new in Willy's shop? Progress on the update is coming along steadily. It's still in a "nose to the grindstone" phase, but some good milestones have been met. This update adds a significant new piece of end-game content and much more! pic.twitter.com/FmjgDJnqYO— ConcernedApe (@ConcernedApe) July 6, 2020
Where the door leads and how it's connected to the end-game content is unknown, but Barone said he has hit some good milestones on the update, but no release window has been given. Like previous updates, the new content will be free for all players. Update 1.5 might also include bananas, which will be added as a new growable fruit after winning a Twitter poll.
Barone has previously said he is working on other projects, but doesn't want anyone getting too excited just yet. The Stardew developer said that he wants to explore projects that allow him to be creative and isn't trying to make the next indie smash hit. Stardew Valley has sold over 10 million copies as of January, 2020.
