Stardew Valley Launches Multiplayer Beta For PC
A Stardew Valley multiplayer option has been in the works for quite some time now as developers continue to give fans regular updates on their progress. With all the bug fixes and tweaks they’ve been making to the upcoming mode, it’s about time they’ve launched the beta. Just announced, a Stardew Valley multiplayer beta is now available for PC players via Steam and there’s no need for an invite to join either.
According to creator Eric “ConcernedApe” Barone, the multiplayer beta is public. How does one participate in the open beta exactly? The steps are as follows:
How To Participate In Stardew Valley Multiplayer Beta
- To enable the beta, right click the game in your library and select properties.
- On the window that pops up there will be a ‘betas’ tab. In the text box, type the password for the branch: jumpingjunimos.
- Then click the ‘Check Code’ button. If you’ve done that correctly, you will now be able to select the ‘beta’ option from the drop down box. Once you’ve done that, Steam will start downloading the update.
It’s fair to be warned that since it is a beta, there’s no doubt that the game will have its share of bugs. So make sure to back up your files if there’s any valuable data. Furthermore, players can even host others by using their personal save files and farms. Players can do so in a variety of methods including LAN, invite codes, Steam or GoG invites, and the co-op menu.
Stardew Valley is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One.
