The perennially awesome Stardew Valley is getting even more content in its next update.

Developer Eric Barone announced on Twitter that this latest release would add a new event for you town in winter, along with more NPC events, decorations, as well as a couple more goodies.

Universally praised and available on just about every current-gen console, when hit in October, we thought it deserved a spot on our best Nintendo Switch games list.

The next really big feature to be added to Stardew Valley will be multiplayer, which Barone teased on Twitter last month.

At the start of December, marketing manager for Chucklefish Ltd – who publish Stardew Valley – Molly Carroll confirmed that a multiplayer beta would begin in Q1 of 2018, and had been pushed back from the end of 2017 to make time for QA and polish.
