Stardew Valley is one of the most beautiful indie success stories of the last decade, and the story doesn’t seem to be over yet. Players received a Christmas gift in the form of the long-awaited 1.5 update. This update set the record for the largest number of players in game history. Obviously, everyone was waiting for all that new chess endgame content.
Stardew Valley reached a new simultaneous Steam player record of 89.807 on December 27, the first Sunday after the 1.5 update was released. As SteamDB shows, the previous record of 64,427 was set shortly after its 2016 release. A peak of giant players similar to what we saw this week was a hit alongside the April 2018 multiplayer beta and the November 2019 1.4 update, which is far greater than either of them.
The number of players set by Terraria earlier this year following the Journey’s End update isn’t as big as it sounds, but there’s a reason why so many people who have had the game over the years suddenly jump in all at once. , Has the same effect.
Stardew Valley is also 33% off on the Steam Winter Sale, so if you haven’t played yet, it’s easy to get involved.
