Developer Eric Barone has revealed through his social networks that Stardew Valley has just received a massive PC update, adding a new explorable island, growing area, personalization cosmetics and more.
Update 1.5 for Stardew Valley brings more significant improvements to the title, being the biggest update ever seen since its launch. Now, PC players will have access to a new region of the world, the Ginger Island, and will be able to unlock a farm island in the beach models, where it will be possible to plant in any season.
Ginger comes up with new locations, dialogues, events, mini-games, puzzles and a series of missions involving several NPCs, including Leo, who will have his own backstory and the development of his narrative from the completion of side quests. The island also has a list of new enemies, as well as many items for customization that can be acquired by building resorts and exploring dungeons.
