Posted October 04, 2018 12:16:38The Stardew game is free-to play, but the developers at Stardew valley, the game’s creators, have decided to offer up some Lithium ore in the game for free.
This comes after the game came under fire for allowing players to mine Lithium from the start, forcing many players to spend a large chunk of their mining time at the mines.
Now the developers have announced that they will be adding Lithium Ore to the game, but only for players who want it.
The Stardust developer told VentureBeat that they had been in talks with Lithium miner, and mining company, Lumium Mining about the idea, but when the developer learned that Lumium had already purchased the company, they changed their mind.
“We didn’t want to be a part of that,” the Stardew developer said.
“We were hoping Lumium would be a partner, but unfortunately they did not become a partner and we have a disagreement with Lumium over the terms of our deal.
We are going to do something different.”
The Starducost developers have since reached out to Lumium, and have promised that players will be able to mine Lumium Ore from Stardew for free when the game releases on October 16.
This is not the first time that Lumia has attempted to make Lithium Mining a paid option.
In 2016, Lumia announced that it would be bringing Lithium mined ore to Stardew in the form of Lithium Lye, which would then be sold to Lumia at a premium price.
The company also stated that Lithium would also be available to purchase in the Stardust game store, and that it will be a “free to play option.”
Lithium has also made a name for itself in other online game titles.
In 2015, Lumias newest game, Battle Arena Royale, was made available to free players, but was then subsequently removed from the store due to complaints.
The Lithium Miner website has a page dedicated to Lithium.
