Stardew Valley creator Eric Barone (aka ConcernedApe) is planning to launch the game’s multiplayer beta this spring.
Barone revealed progress on the game’s multiplayer update is coming along nicely. This is thanks to Tom Coxon, who’s helped Barone with completing all the network coding to turn Stardew Valley into a multiplayer game.
As such, work on the new features is finished with the new text currently being translated into different languages. Once Barone receives the new text, the next step would be QA testing and then, hopefully, the launch of the beta.
“Once we’ve received the translated text and integrated it back into the game, we’ll begin a serious QA phase involving thorough testing of all new features in both multiplayer and single player contexts,” Barone wrote. “When that is finished, the update should be ready for a public beta. I am still shooting for a spring release for the beta.”
