Stardew Valley

Stardew Valley is coming to iOS

Who of us hasn’t felt the call of nature and longing for a simpler life? Well, Stardew Valley, a super cute combination of farming simulation and RPG is a game that pretty much embodies that burning desire of modern man to escape the tedium and bareness of contemporary existence – perhaps that’s why it has such a huge fan base across multiple platforms. Unfortunately, up to now, only owners of PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch were actually able to play it. But here comes a great news which will doubtlessly brighten up the autumnal season of most nature-loving iOS device users: developer Eric Barone, in gaming circles known as ConcernedApe, had officially announced in his blog that his award-winning game Stardew Valley will be coming to iOS devices in October 24, followed by Android version probably soon after that.

According to Barone, a mobile port of Stardew Valley will be a full version, with a complete content and all features that existed in the original game. Apparently, the only thing that will be missing in this mobile version of Stardew Valley is the multiplayer component, at least initially. Since this is a matter of concern for many anxious players who are already petitioning developer about this omission, we can hope that multiplayer feature will also be included in the mobile version of Stardew Valley at some point.

So what else can we expect to see in this upcoming mobile version? First of all, although Barone emphasizes that the mobile version will look, feel and play pretty much the same as on other platforms, it will also feature a bit tweaked gameplay specially adapted for touch controls. The game will feature a new user interface, menus and etc. so that everything can function smoothly and naturally on the touchscreen. Another information of paramount importance for all players who have already invested a significant amount of time into their virtual farm is that PC users will be able to import their previously saved data into iOS version via iTunes. A word of a warning, though: mods won’t be supported, so make sure not to import game status which contains modes of any kind since that’s likely to cause severe compatibility issues. Finally, the game will cost $7.99 and there won’t be in-app purchases. That’s all we know at the moment about a mobile version of Stardew Valley. All that’s left is to be patient just a few days more until 24 October and then we’ll finally be able to get in touch with nature while we’re on the go.
