Stardew Valley 1.6 Patch Drops Today – Here's What To Expect

1.6 was announced almost a year ago and promises to add a number of new features, including hats on pets and the highly coveted iridium scythe. Here’s an image of some of the planned updates from last September.


As the release draws closer, ConcernedApe has also teased smaller updates as well, leaving small patch notes on his X account each day. The patch will fix the sword’s downward hitbox, make sure harvesting is the same speed walking right-to-left as left-to-right, and pickles, jellies, juices, and wines will be colored to match their fruit or vegetable of origin. Finally, you can drink mayonnaise. Yeah, you read that right.

Some more updates are included as images below.

In addition to the new content, ConcernedApe says he wanted to update the game to make modding “easier and more powerful.” On that note, he recently announced that many existing mods are already updated for the new version, though he recommends trying the patch without mods first. There will also be an option to keep your game in the 1.5.6 patch if you don’t want any of the changes.

Stardew Valley’s 1.6 patch launches later today on PC, with mobile and console updates coming sometime in the future.
