How to Play Stardew Valley Multiplayer on Nintendo Switch
Stardew Valley’s much anticipated multiplayer feature is going to be fully released on Aug. 1 for PC owners. That means its leaving beta, and will be presumably patched in as a full update for everyone. The feature allows players to join other people’s games and take part in a variety of different activities cooperatively. You can help around the farm and join them in exploring the mines. Guest players can even move in, sort-of, by creating a cabin for them to live in on the host player’s farm and if both players want, even get married and have kids. It’s all pretty exciting stuff for fans of the hit farming simulator. Naturally, Nintendo Switch owners are probably itching to get their hands on it too. Stardew Valley can be hard to put down as is, mixing in the ability to play with a friend just adds a whole other element to the game that will open up new possibilities. A co-op farm on the wilderness farm for example could be pretty fun experience!
Right now, we’re still waiting to hear when the multiplayer mode will be updated into the console versions of Stardew Valley. Now that the mode is complete, it probably won’t be too much longer before it makes its way onto consoles, but there’s still no precise timetable other than “soon.” However, we’ll update this post as soon as we have confirmation on that.
In the mean time, we can probably assume that playing multiplayer Stardew Valley and joining games probably won’t be much different than what currently exists on PC. On the PC version, you select a co-op option from the main menu and then have the option to either join or host a game to play with others. We’ll confirm that playing Stardew Valley multiplayer on Switch is the same when it’s released.
