Stardew Valley Multiplayer Progress

A new developer blog for Stardew Valley has a status report on the upcoming version 1.3 patch for Chucklefish's farming simulation (thanks PCGamesN). This update will add multiplayer support, and Eric "ConcernedApe" Barone explains the process for completing the update, saying he's hopeful it will enter beta testing in the spring:

As you may know, Ive always worked solo on Stardew Valley. However, for this multiplayer update Ive had the help of Tom Coxon (of Chucklefish). Hes done all the network coding to turn Stardew Valley into a multiplayer game truly an impressive feat, and one that would not be possible without his talent. He deserves a lot of credit for this Thank you Tom!

Now, heres where were at:
Work on the new features is done, and weve sent all the new text off to be translated into the different languages. Meanwhile, we are working on bug fixes. Once weve received the translated text and integrated it back into the game, well begin a serious QA phase involving thorough testing of all new features in both multiplayer and single player contexts. When that is finished, the update should be ready for a public beta. I am still shooting for a spring release for the beta.

When the beta gets closer to launch, Ill fill you guys in on more specifics as to how multiplayer will work, as well as a more complete list of the new features in the update.

Ill also be sure to let you guys know as soon as weve determined a more concrete timetable for release.
