Stardew Valley’s 1.3 update is currently in a beta phase on PCs, allowing people to test out multiplayer. But it is not limited to new cooperative content. It also includes new singleplayer events and experiences. Eric “ConcernedApe” Barone did not list all the details about it yet, but a number of players have gathered in the Stardew Valley subreddit to accumulate a continually-updated list of all the new content they have found in the game. (Thanks, Stardew Valley subreddit contributors!)
Many of the changes are quite major. For example, if you have already completely upgraded your house, you can build Pam and Penny a house. This will replace their trailer in town. This can be done by visiting Robin when you have 350 wood and 500,000g.
New items are available. Shipping boxes, stone signs and wood signs can be made. An Auto-Grabber is sold by Marnie to automatically get items from farm animals. Evelyn has a recipe for a Garden Pot that lets you grow a single crop year-round indoors or outdoors. Sandy sells new seasonal furniture and cactus seeds. A Night Market is held at the docks. It takes place on Winter 15 at 5pm. People can visit and buy some items, and the Egg Festival sells new items. People can also visit the Statue of Uncertainty near Krobus to pay 10,000g to change your profession.
Relationships have been altered and improved You can talk to the Junimos living on your farm. Krobus, Linus and Willie have new friendship events. There is also a group break-up event where if someone is dating every bachelor or bachelorette in town (by giving them a bouquet), all of the men or women will be at the bar and confront you about dating all of them without letting them know what was going on. They will then not talk to your farmer for a while.
Stardew Valley’s 1.3 update is currently available on PCs. Stardew Valley is available for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
