Stardew-Valley-1.1

Stardew Valley continues to go strong since it launched earlier this year, but today the game is getting a brand new update that packs a lot of new features into the game. The 1.1 update has previously been available in beta form, though today it has finally gone live and the developer has broken down everything that fans can expect to find once they’ve downloaded it.

The update includes new farm maps, buildings and a new quest, but you can check out the complete changelog below.

Stardew Valley 1.1 Changelog:

  • Shane and Emily are now available to marry. They each have new events, music, and more!
  • Spouses now have a unique outdoor area and behavior on the farm.
  • You can now choose from 5 different farm maps at character creation. Each map is focused on a different skill area.
    • Standard Farm – The original Stardew Valley farm.
    • Riverland Farm – Lots of water, good for fishing.
    • Forest Farm – Foraging opportunities and a unique weed that always drops mixed seeds.
    • Hill-top Farm – Has a small mineral deposit from which ores spawn, including a unique geode-bearing ore.
    • Wilderness Farm – Monsters spawn at night.
  • “Shed” building… An empty room that can be decorated, filled with kegs, etc.
  • “Mill” building… Can be used to turn wheat into flour and beets into sugar overnight.
  • A new quest that can be started after the Community Center or JojaMart quest arc is complete. The new quest results in a new “magical construction” feature available from the Wizard’s Tower. The new quest is triggered when you enter the Railroad area.
  • Added several new locations that are related to the above quest. “Junimo Hut” building (Magical Construction). Junimos will harvest crops within a certain distance of the hut, instantly transporting the harvest back to the hut for you to gather at your convenience.
