Stardew Valley version 1.3, which includes multiplayer, is now available for public beta!
How do I opt into the beta?
To enable the beta , right click the game in your library and select properties. On the window that pops up there will be a ‘betas’ tab. In the text box, type the password for the branch: jumpingjunimos. Then click the ‘Check Code’ button.
If you’ve done that correctly, you will now be able to select the ‘beta’ option from the drop down box.
Once you’ve done that, Steam will start downloading the update.
What precautions should I take?
The v1.3 update is still a beta at this point, which means there will be bugs! At the very least, it’s recommended that you:
Backup your save files before playing the update.
Your save files are located in
%APPDATA%\StardewValley\Saves on Windows,
~/.config/StardewValley/Saves on Mac and Linux.
Remove any mods you’ve installed that haven’t been updated for v1.3.
