Stardew Valley will be added to the Apple Arcade catalog

Slowly but steadily, Apple Arcade, Apple’s subscription game service, has been building a truly interesting catalog. As a user of it since Apple One debuted in Spain, I admit that in its early days its catalog was most incomplete for me, but for some time now, I have seen how revisions of great classics have been added (Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja, Osmos, Life and more), along with more recent releases and adaptations of titles that have enjoyed great success on other platforms.

One of the conditions that games must meet to be included in Apple Arcade is that They should not have advertising or micropayments. Thus, we can find some proposals adapted from games that, in their normal versions, do have these elements. Thus, for anyone who is fed up with these elements, which have become so common for some time now, Apple’s proposal is an oasis in the middle of the desert.

As I said before, the company seeks to add titles that have been especially relevant on iOS or other platforms. A clear example of this can be found in Gris, one of the most famous and successful independent developments in recent years, and which has been part of the Apple Arcade proposal for some time now. And the same can be said of other very different titles, but also tremendously successful, such as Football Manager 2023.

Stardew Valley will be added to the Apple Arcade catalog

Well, as we can read in Mashable, those from Cupertino are going to score a very important goal, and that is Stardew Valley will be added to the Apple Arcade catalog starting in July. Let’s remember that the ConcernedApe title has been available for purchase in the App Store for quite some time now, and that at the beginning of this year it received the last major update, 1.5, which had already arrived in its PC version some time ago.

As someone who has spent more hours than I care to admit to Stardew Valley, a game I bought at the time on both Steam and the App Store, I understand that this game may not be for everyone, and that the small size of an iPhone screen compared to that of a PC can be deterrents for those who may have considered buying it. However, its inclusion in the Apple Arcade catalog opens the door so that all subscribers, both specifically to Arcade and Apple One, can finally give it a try. Of course, for all people in that position, a warning message: be careful, it is a masterpiece that engages.
