Stardew Valley creator Eric "ConcernedApe" Barone has offered another tantalising glimpse at the game's upcoming, very-long-awaited online co-operative multiplayer mode.

First teased back in 2016, prior to its release on other platforms, Stardew Valley was always created with both a single-player and a multiplayer mode in mind. Stardew Valley is a game that lends itself well to this type of gameplay, so it'll be awesome to see this mode finally come to fruition. Also... is that a flamingo?

As for when Barone will actually share the multiplayer update, that's still up in the air at the moment. What's more, you will be able to marry another player, in case none of the local NPC's strike your fancy. Check out our content roundup for more information on what's coming to the farming sim soon. This was originally expected to occur late previous year, but was pushed back into the early part of 2018 "in order to make room for polish and QA".

Stardew Valley's free multiplayer patch, which should bring other listed additions as well, is scheduled to launch sometime in early 2018.

Shortly before Christmas, Barone revealed additional content that will be coming along with this multiplayer update, including a new in-game event for winter, new outdoor decorations, new events for NPCs, and a way to respec your profession. There is no official release date for the update yet, but we'll keep you posted on the latest news.
