Multiplayer Finally Makes Its Way to Stardew Valley on PS4

Multiplayer has finally made its way to Stardew Valley in update 1.3 on PS4. Xbox One players will have to wait a little while longer, as the update failed certification on that platform (again). Thankfully, update 1.3 is live on PS4 and it introduces a host of new features like various language options, a slew of bug fixes, and a lot more, including that aforementioned multiplayer addition.
