    If you're one of the hundreds of thousands of people who bought the Harvest Moon inspired hit indie game, Stardew Valley, you might be excited to hear the long-awaited online co-op update is almost here. It'll be hitting PC first, then the Nintendo Switch and other consoles at a later date. The patch will go out to players through Steam, GOG, and WeGame on August 1, and will let you play with up to 3 others, and create a large farm with their own homes and animals and crops.

    It's more Harvest Moon than AC. You build your whole farm up and try to collect enough money to have the best stuff in town. As opposed to Animal Crossing, there's not as much focus on socializing. That aspect is there in Stardew, but it's not really major.

    Been playing with the multiplayer beta since it first released. It's so much better now than it was when it first started. Connectivity issues, desyncs, and disconnects are almost nonexistent. It's a blast with a full farm of 4 and there are already mods that uncap the player limit so you can have as many farmhands as you want. The update even comes with new content like building pam a house and the ability to marry other farmhands.

    It does, but it's still considered to be a public beta. Some people prefer to wait for the finished product, even if it's actually pretty stable (it actually has been pretty stable for nearly all of July, I played a fair amount and never really had any game-breaking crashes or bugs, even with mods that are properly designed for 1.3).

    I have the Switch version, very excited to hear this. My friend will probably be even more excited since he's on PC. If crossplay exists then I'll be a happy boi.

    Switch and other consoles at a later date. Not like the PC requirements are high for this one, though, and it's worth buying twice anyway.
