  • Stardew Valley creator, ConcernedApe, has shared a sneak peek at a big change coming in Update 1.6 – the ability to create artisan goods from foraged items.
  • The new update will expand the options for players to earn money and upgrade their farm by allowing them to make artisanal products from all farmed crops and foraged goods.
  • Fans have eagerly anticipated this update for years, as it addresses a long-standing issue regarding foraged goods and offers a greater variety of gameplay options. Excitement for Update 1.6 is at an all-time high.

A staple in the life-sim genre, Stardew Valley has captivated fans for years, and creator Eric “ConcernedApe” Barone has just shared a sneak peek at a big change to artisan goods coming in Update 1.6. Shared details about the highly anticipated Stardew Valley Update 1.6 have already been keeping fans buzzing, and this latest reveal has once again boosted fan excitement for the new content.

First released to immediate popularity in 2016, Stardew Valley is a farming life-sim game that places players in the quaint countryside of Pelican Town. Players can farm produce, mine ores, fish sea creatures, and craft artisanal goods to earn money and upgrade their farm. Artisan goods in particular are very popular among fans, and many are excited at the prospect of more expansions to this aspect of the game.

Stardew Valley creator ConcernedApe shared an image of an inventory screen featuring Wild Horseradish Juice, a brand-new artisan good. Players are able to produce a variety of artisanal goods utilizing produce and animal products they harvest in the game. Milk and eggs can be made into cheese and mayonnaise, wool can be spun into cloth, truffles can be processed into oil, and fruits and vegetables can be made into preserves or juices. Previously, any fruits or vegetables labeled as “foraged,” such as wild horseradish, could not be made into artisan goods and could only be used for cooking or sold as-is. The new sneak peek from ConcernedApe shows that foraged goods will likely be changed to allow for more artisan products to be made. This means that players will be able to take full advantage of all the farmed crops and foraged items in Stardew Valley, which in turn offers fans a greater variety of ways to earn gold and role-play on their farm.

Fans immediately responded to the reveal with celebrations and excitement. Many commented that while Wild Horseradish Juice specifically did not sound very appetizing, the implications of the screenshot offer a long-awaited update to satisfy fan requests. For years, fans had been bothered by the fact some foraged goods, such as blackberries, could be placed in preserves jars but not other items. Preserves jars in Stardew Valley can greatly help players to quickly make money and thus make early improvements to their farm for long-term benefits. With this latest preview from ConcernedApe, fan anticipation for Update 1.6 is at an all-time high.

Players continue to enjoy the relaxing yet rewarding gameplay and story of Stardew Valley. The game has already cemented itself among the best life-sim video games of all time, and the expansive features coming in Update 1.6 are sure to bring even more content and happiness to Stardew Valley fans everywhere.

Stardew Valley is available for Android, iOS, PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.
