Stardew Valley patch 1.5.4 fixes some lingering issues

The latest Stardew Valley patch has arrived on PC, and is coming to consoles soon.

Stardew Valley patch 1.5.4  is now available and fixes some lingering issues from the 1.5 updates released in December.

It also makes slight adjustments to the game. ConcernedApe said in a blog post that this will hopefully be the last bug fix patch necessary for 1.5.

The patch is now in certification for consoles and is expected to be released later this month or in early February.

You can look over the patch notes below.

Stardew Valley 1.5.4 Patch

Changelog (w/ Spoilers):

  • Adjusted the logic for checking for Perfection so that it accounts for games where the farm switched to the Joja route partway through a Community Center playthrough.
