Over the weekend, the massive Stardew Valley ($4.99) version 1.5 update hit iOS and Android. It was supposed to release before the end of 2022, but was pushed a bit. Stardew Valley 1.5 brings in tons of new content including new end game content, quality of life features, the ability to move beds, a new Beach Farm, advanced game options, and a lot more. Following its release, the first bug fix update went live as well. Read the patch notes here. Another update is being submitted soon to fix more issues. I’m glad to see the update finally arrive. Creator Eric Barone also mentions that this is quite a re-write for the game on mobile and it should allow for quicker updates like for version 1.6.
If you run into any issues with this update, you can report them here. Eric Barone is also working on Haunted Chocolatier, which is a brand new game I’m looking forward to playing on Steam Deck until it eventually comes to mobile. Read our original review of Stardew Valley if you haven’t gotten it yet. We even featured it as our Game of the Week. If you don’t already own it, you can buy it on the App Store for iOS here and for Android here on Google Play. If you own a Nintendo Switch and an iOS device, I compared both versions of the game to help you find the best platform to play it on. Here’s our forum thread on the game for more discussion. What do you think of Stardew Valley version 1.5 so far if you updated over the weekend and has it been running well for you?
