Stardew Valley, the beloved farming simulation game, is celebrating its 8th birthday today. As fans around the world join in the celebration, the developers have given them a gift to look forward to: the release date for the long-awaited update 1.6.

The Exciting Announcement

The developers made the announcement on their Discord channel, stating, “The PC release date for version 1.6 is on March 19! Consoles and mobile will come later, but the wait shouldn’t be too long. Consoles (Switch, XBOX, Playstation) will likely come out first, then mobile afterwards.”

This news comes as a pleasant surprise for the Stardew Valley community, who have been eagerly awaiting the update since it was first announced. The update is expected to bring a host of new features, including new festivals, items, stories, secrets, and a new farm type, along with eight-player PC multiplayer support, over 100 lines of new dialogue, and fresh late game content.

A Special Birthday Offer

In addition to the exciting news about the update, the developers also announced a special offer to celebrate Stardew Valley’s birthday. “Additionally, Stardew Valley is 50% off on Steam and Switch for today only! Be sure to grab some copies for some friends! ❤️”

Looking Back & Forward

As we reported earlier today, Stardew Valley’s 8th birthday is not just about looking back at its success, but also looking forward to its future. The game’s developer, ConcernedApe, has confirmed that the much-anticipated 1.6 update is in its final stages before launch. While a firm release date hadn’t been given at that time, today’s announcement has set the date for March 19, 2024.

As Stardew Valley turns eight, the excitement for the future is palpable. With the promise of update 1.6 on the horizon, fans of the game have much to look forward to. Here’s to another year of farming, building, and community in the wonderful world of Stardew Valley!
