The day has finally come. For those of us who have committed 100% to playing Stardew Valley on our Nintendo Switch, multiplayer options haven’t been available. That is, until now. This week brought the release of the multiplayer update for Stardew Valley which allows you to work on your farms with friends.
Download the free update to play online with up to 3 friends & discover new single player content!

Here are some details from the Chucklefish blog:
Each player will have their own Cabin on the farm, and you’ll be able to work together to achieve common goals such as farming, mining, fishing, foraging and festival participation! If you want to ‘ban’ a troublesome player who keeps eating your parsnips, you can simply demolish their Cabin.
I for one can’t wait to dive into this new mode! Just thinking about how much faster it will be organizing all of my crops…Stardew Valley is available on the Nintendo e-shop now!
