Stardew Valley Update 1.5 Overview

New maps and places

Ginger Island

A brand new region with new events, NPCs, monsters and items, and the novelty is fascinating! You can access the area by completing Willie’s Chain Quest. Reach level 100 in Skull Cave and receive a letter from Willie the next day.

In Willie’s cabin there’s a door leading to a broken boat. He will ask you to repair it with 200 hardwoods, 5 iridium plates and 5 batteries. After repairing his boat, you can now sail to Ginger Island for 1000g per trip.
