Stardew Valley Creator Reveals ‘Hats on Cats (and Dogs)’ Feature Seemingly Coming in 1.6 Update

Stardew Valley, the beloved farming RPG game developed by Eric ‘Concerned Ape’ Barone, is set to receive a delightful new feature in its highly anticipated 1.6 update. In a recent teaser, Barone hinted at the possibility of players being able to dress up their digital pets in the game.

The developer took to the popular platform X to share the exciting news with the Stardew Valley community. Barone posted four images showcasing adorable pixel pets wearing a variety of headwear, including bows, forager hats, and even a fashionable hat. The announcement immediately sparked joy among fans who have longed for their in-game pets to have the opportunity to flaunt fashionable accessories without the need for mods.

While the community eagerly awaits the arrival of the 1.6 update, some fans speculate whether the new feature will make its debut in Barone’s upcoming title, the Haunted Chocolatier. However, upon closer inspection of the images, it becomes apparent that the hats, floors, and wallpapers shown align perfectly with existing assets in Stardew Valley. This suggests that the feature will likely be included in the highly anticipated 1.6 update.

Excitement surrounding the 1.6 update has been mounting, with Barone recently unveiling a host of confirmed features. These include the addition of eight-player multiplayer support on PC, over 100 lines of new dialogue, new late game quest endings, and a range of other adjustments, items, and features aimed at enhancing the gameplay experience. Alas, the developer has yet to announce an official release date for the 1.6 update, leaving fans eagerly anticipating its arrival.

The anticipation for new content has also been felt beyond the Stardew Valley community. Cinx, the producer of Terraria, humorously attempted to strike a deal with Barone in the comments section, offering to reveal the release date for Terraria’s long-awaited 1.4.5 update in exchange for the release date of Stardew Valley’s 1.6 update. This playful interaction underscores the excitement surrounding both games and the eagerness of fans to delve into fresh content.

As players eagerly await the 1.6 update, IGN’s comprehensive guides and Wiki provide valuable resources to make the most of their farming endeavors. With the addition of hats for pets, Stardew Valley continues to captivate players with its charming and immersive gameplay.
