Stardew Valley is heading to mobile, starting with the iOS App Store later this month
Farming RPG Stardew Valley will make its mobile debut – via the iOS App Store – on October 24, 2018.
The port of the popular PC and console game is being handled by London-based mobile studio, The Secret Police, who have worked with developer Eric Barone (ConcernedApe) and publisher Chucklefish to bring the game to pockets around the world.
The iOS edition will be content complete, up to and including the game’s 1.3 update, which adds the Night Market. It will also feature new touch-screen controls, and a revamped user interface designed specifically for mobile use.
If you’ve been carefully nurturing your own Pelican Town on Windows, macOS, and Linux, you will be able to import your save into the iOS version via iTunes. There’s currently no word on whether the PC version’s recently added multiplayer mode will also be added to the mobile edition.
Stardew Valley is available to pre-order now via the iOS App Store, and will be released on October 24, 2018, priced at £7.99/$7.99/€8.99. Best of all, the game is free from the tyranny of micro-transactions. An Android release is planned for a later date.
