Stardew Valley is releasing this month on the iOS App Store on October 24th. The indie farming sim will release on Android but does not have a release date yet. The developer of the mobile version, The Secret Police, are working on the Android version and the game’s developer Eric Barrone will update us soon. The game is available on the App Store now for pre-order.
The features were listed on the game’s developer blog and are as follows:
- Supports iPhone and iPad gaming, check on the App Store page to see if your iOS version is compatible
- It’s the full game, not a cut down version, and plays almost identically to all other versions. The main difference is that it has been rebuilt for touch-screen gameplay on iOS (new UI, menu systems and controls)
- £7.99 / $7.99 / 8,99 € with no in-app purchases
- Includes 1.3 single player content, such as the Night Market, but not Multiplayer
- PC players can transfer their save data to the iOS version via iTunes – but make sure to always back up your save data first! Mods are not supported, and any save data transferred containing mods may cause compatibility issues.
To see that it’s the full 1.3 version of the game is outstanding and a low price with no in-app purchases is a great deal. And the fact that you can transfer your progress from PC to mobile I’m sure will excite many.
Barrone wanted to ensure players that the release of the mobile version was not having any effect on the console multiplayer ports that are being developed by another team. QA (quality assurance testing) has started on the Nintendo Switch version and to follow are the Xbox One and PS4. Barrone promises to keep everyone updated on any news regarding the release time frames for each console.
