Stardew Valley Is Headed To Smartphones With iOS Version Arriving October 24

Stardew Valley is headed to iOS this month and then Android

Developer Eric Barone, also known as ConcernedApe, revealed the news on the game's blog. But it doesn't include the PC version's recently added multiplayer features, and Barone stresses that development of the mobile port isn't impacting work on the console multiplayer ports.

The mobile version of Stardew Valley is being touted as the full version of the game, with the only differences being the game's interface being fine-tuned for touchscreen play.

The cult hit farming game will hit iOS devices on October 24th, and has a $7.99 price tag and no in-app purchases.

While the iOS versions of the game won't come with the fabled multiplayer iteration available in the GOG or Steam versions on PC, it will have all the single-player bells and whistles of the 1.3 multiplayer patch.

Stardew Valley iOS was announced by publisher Chucklefish earlier today.

The iOS version launches on October 24, but there's no launch date for the Android port right now.

We're two weeks out from the iPhone and iPad versions of Stardew Valley. Barone's post goes on to note that developing the mobile port hasn't impacted development of the console multiplayer ports. Fortunately, you will be able to transfer your PC save data to the iOS version of the game via iTunes. Best of all, the game is free from the tyranny of micro-transactions. It's unclear whether the Android version will take the same approach or deliver a free-to-play solution.
