Stardew Valley creator Eric Barone heard your request for PS Vita release loud and clear.
Barone or more widely known by his online alias, ConcernedApe, is pleased to announce that the hit farming simulation game will be launched for PS Vita on 22 May.
The best part about the release is, not only will players get to play Stardew Valley in a portable console much alike to the Switch version but it will also support cross-buy! That means for those who already purchased the game in PlayStation 4, you will be able to download the PS Vita edition for free.
In November last year, ConcernedApe wished to add in a multiplayer mode that allows for 4 players to build their farms and live together on the same patch of land. The multiplayer beta has successfully launched on 30 April 2018 for PC. Here is a simple guide for you to join the multiplayer beta courtesy of the publisher Chucklefish.
For those who played Stardew Valley on consoles, you might have to wait a little bit longer for the multiplayer beta to complete but the feature is currently underway according to the developer’s response below.
PC first, then switch, then both Xbox and PS4. Not exactly sure on the timetable for those. This tweet is referring to PC/Mac/Linux— ConcernedApe (@ConcernedApe) April 10, 2018
Initially released in 2016, Stardew Valley achieved critical success on Steam due to its polished gameplay that is heavily inspired by Harvest Moon and the game also supports modding for different map textures as well as expanding on other additional features.
Stardew Valley was launched on PS4 and Xbox One consoles after the game hit all the right buttons late 2016. Nintendo Switch was the latest one to get the game in 2017 and Stardew Valley became the most-downloaded game on the Switch.
