Last month, Stardew Valley creator Eric "ConcernedApe" Barone told everyone in a Reddit AMA - short for "Ask Me Anything" - that he has no plans for new single-player content. He said that with Stardew Valley now available for multiple platforms, adding new content is a lot more difficult now compared to when the game was only available for PC.

Turns out Barone had a change of heart. In a Twitter post last night, he confirmed that he is currently working on new content for Stardew Valley, which includes single-player content. It will be released alongside the upcoming free multiplayer update.

Barone didn't provide many details on what the single-player content might be, only promising he will share more when the release date gets closer. But his Twitter post included an image of a boat, possibly hinting the new content might include the ability for players to explore new lands in the game.

Replying to a fan, Barone also confirmed the upcoming update will be available on both PC and consoles. There's no definite timeframe yet for the update. But with the announcement of new single-player content, fans are no doubt hoping it will arrive sooner rather than later.

Featuring charmingly nostalgic 2D visuals, Stardew Valley is a farming simulator with RPG elements incorporated into the gameplay. It plays out similarly to the Story of Seasons (formerly Harvest Moon) series in which players run a farm, interact with townspeople, and start a family.

Published by London-based indie game developer and publisher Chucklefish, Stardew Valley is considered by many as one of the best games released last year. It's also credited with breathing new life into a typical niche genre, which was once synonymous with Story of Seasons.

Originally released for the PC, Stardew Valley is now available for PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, with the Switch port having arrived last October 5. We gave it a "Must Buy" tag in our review of the Xbox One version, with our reviewer calling it "a brilliant game, fun, engaging and packed with things to see and do."
