Valheim is an open world survival title developed by Iron Gate AB and published by Coffee Stain Publishing.
It launched in early access on Steam in February 2021.
Ported to Xbox and PC (via the Microsoft Store) by Piktiv and Fishlabs, it will support crossplay between Xbox, Steam and Microsoft Store.
Iron Gate Studio is still working on refining the new structures. It's also looking into an issue with cloud sync overwriting new saves.
Iron Gate Studio says development is "well underway" on the Mistlands biome, which will also include new enemies and weapons.
Iron Gate AB has released a new patch for Valheim, which in new content, various fixes and improvements, and QoL changes.
Smaller content like a new armor set from the Swamps and caves for the Mountain biome also showcased in WIP screenshots.
Iron Gate Studios is also looking at smaller updates to help the wait and revealed that the Mountains would receive "something."
Health-based foods now have more Stamina while Stamina-based foods now offer more health. Also, Fulings have been nerfed.
New weapons and items, the ability to name tamed pets, an Obliterator for destroying unwanted items, and much more have been added.
Lead designer Richard Svensson hopes players will create new worlds and play from the beginning to experience all of the new changes.
Two-handed axes will have faster windup and more staggering power while bows now require drawing the string for decent accuracy.
Upgrade the cauldron, use an oven to bake bread and pie, and plant onions for some of the new recipes with the upcoming update.
The update changes up food mechanics, scales blocking power with max health and also buffs Tower Shields to knock back foes.
Tower Shields will now knock back enemies that strike it, providing a slower but much more defensive option for tank-minded players.
Over 1.1 million units were sold from April to June 2021. Iron Gate Studios is currently working on Hearth and Home, the game's first major update.
Blocking damage will scale based on maximum health, allowing for more tank-focused play. A new Stagger bar is also being added.
Food is being divided into three categories - health, stamina, and a mix of both - with certain items changing to reflect this.
The Embracer Group expects another 1 to 1.2 million copies to be sold by June end.
New terrain modifications will use this system going forward.
It will be the first major update for the game.
