After its PC debut in December, Stardew Valley has rolled out the substantial 1.5 content update today on consoles. If you're a Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, or Xbox One player, today's the day. It's huge.

Update 1.5 includes a ton of new stuff like Willy's boat that you can repair and ride to Ginger Island, another tough dungeon to face with new enemies, a new NPC to befriend, Golden Walnuts to collect, the "beach farm" layout, a bunch of new items and machines like the Geode Crusher, more fish to catch, extra furniture items, further character events, the ability to move your bed, and swimming ducks.

For console players in particular, local split-screen multiplayer is such an important feature. Tell the fam.

There are simply too many additions to warrant rattling them all off here (check the minutia-filled patch notes when you're ready), so those are the highlights. That wasn't too long of a wait compared to the PC update timing, but I won't lie: I've been antsy for split-screen co-op. My weekend plans are made.
