It currently sits at 96% Overwhelmingly Positive on Steam & it is the number 1 best seller on there currently.

They also announced today that it has sold 1 million copies in a few days. It has also been a hit on Twitch with over 127,000 peak viewers on its first week in early access. Not bad for the developers first game as it’s been a hit with gamers and the media alike and getting rave reviews.​


A battle-slain warrior, the Valkyries have ferried your soul to Valheim, the tenth Norse world. Besieged by creatures of chaos and ancient enemies of the gods, you are the newest custodian of the primordial purgatory, tasked with slaying Odin’s ancient rivals and bringing order to Valheim.

Your trials begin at the disarmingly peaceful centre of Valheim, but the gods reward the brave and glory awaits. Venture forth through imposing forests and snow-capped mountains, explore and harvest more valuable materials to craft deadlier weapons, sturdier armor, viking strongholds and outposts. Build a mighty longship and sail the great oceans in search of exotic lands … but be wary of sailing too far...

Key features:
  • Huge procedurally-generated world - explore and inhabit mystical lands, from mysterious forests to imposing snow-topped mountain ranges and stunning meadows, complete with their own creatures of legend to battle and wildlife to hunt.
  • Co-op PvE (2-10 players) - - Whether you want to brave the lands alone or venture with trusted allies, Valheim supports independent, player-hosted servers and unlimited world creation. We recommend playing co-op with 3-5 players.
  • Punishing dodge & block based combat system with a wide range of weapons
  • Build & sail ships - from flimsy rafts to imposing warships, build legendary vessels to conquer the seas and discover new lands.
  • Summon and defeat vengeful primordial bosses of myth and legend, and collect trophies to progress and craft new powerful items
  • Flexible house and base building system - raise mead halls, farms, settlements outposts, castles and more.
  • Intuitive item crafting - forge the finest weapons and armour, and craft food and mead.
  • Dedicated server- for players who want to run a persistent server. If you prefer not to run a server on your PC, consider renting a server at G-Portal.

Only 3 weeks into their Early Access Launch and now they have reached 3 million sales.

Statement by Irongate


This February has been truly wild! Less than three weeks into Early Access, we’ve already hit another milestone. Valheim has now been purchased by over three million brave Vikings looking to survive the 10th world of the Yggdrasil - or die trying - probably crushed by a falling tree.

To keep up with the old norse references, this is now equivalent to 74,319 longhouses stuffed with Vikings singing songs and celebrating victory with some great tasting mead, so.. SKÅL!

We’re also continuing to break records! Here’s what we’ve achieved together in the last week:​
  • Over 60,000 ‘Overwhelmingly Positive’ reviews​
  • Officially entered the Steam’s Top 250 best reviewed games of all time (we’re 78th and climbing!)​
  • Currently 7th most streamed game on twitch, surpassing CS:GO, Dota 2, Minecraft and Rust​
  • Over 20 million hours of gameplay already watched - now help us find a Viking reference for this one!​

What is even more incredible is all the great content you have already been sending our way. We’ve seen amazing art, read great stories and heard awesome music - all inspired by Valheim, all in the space of 17 days.

The Iron Gate team wanted to share one more big thank you to everyone who has already joined us on this exciting journey of mythological proportions.

Speak to you soon <3

Praise Odin!

Valheim tops 500,000 simultaneous players, beating four more records in the process and sells 4 million units in 3 weeks.​

On Sunday 21st Feb, the game reached 500,000 simultaneous players, according to SteamDB, breaking four other all-time Steam player count records.

The game reached a concurrent player count of 502,387.



When Valheim first hit Steam Early Access just three weeks ago, we hoped that all the hard work our small team put into the game these past three years would get the attention it deserved.

Little did we know just how much Valheim would resonate with all four million of you.

That’s right! Three weeks into Early Access, and we’ve hit another milestone, four million brave souls embarking on the most dangerous feat in over a thousand years of Viking history - trying to make Odin proud.​

Some of the latest:
  • This past weekend, we hit 500,000 concurrent players - this puts Valheim in the top 5 most played games in the history of Steam.
  • Valheim has already been played for a combined total of 10,000 years! That’s 3,649,980 more days than the 20 days it has been on Steam Early Access.
  • Still climbing the Steam’s Top 250 best reviewed games of all time, now sitting in 57th place!
  • 81,000+ Overwhelmingly Positive reviews

For the fourth (and surely not final) time - thank you!!! We couldn’t have wished for a more engaged, passionate and supportive community, and all of your amazing creations and ideas are keeping us motivated to deliver the Valheim you all deserve.

Praise Odin!

Teaser of upcoming update

No actual information yet but that hasnt stopped IronGate from not only revealing they passed 6 Million units sold on 19th March but the Hearth and Home update should be coming soon.

Development news

Vikings! A little over six weeks has passed since the release of Valheim, and a lot has happened since. We have sold 6 million units and our community is steadily growing bigger and stronger, which is absolutely fantastic!

A lot of things are happening within Iron Gate too. We are still working from home, and although we miss our time together at the office, we’re not letting that slow us down! We are very honored to have gotten the opportunity to take part in several interviews, from podcasts and gaming newslets to Swedish television! It has been a hectic time, but worry not! We are of course still working on the game.

Our programmer has since launch worked hard (and still is) on high priority bugs and issues that have been reported by you players, for example networking issues and balance tweaks to our most evil bug, the Deathsquito! If you have any bugs to report, please do so here: https://valheimbugs.featureupvote.com/. There you can see what bugs we have fixed, and are working on!

(We are currently waiting for a Steam update from Valve before we push our next patch, thank you so much for your patience!)

A lot of you have reached out and asked about the road map. How’s “Hearth and Home” coming along? Much of our focus has been on play testing and bug fixing, but as things are calming down since launch, we can spend more time working on our first big update! Our lead artist even graciously provided a sneak peek:


We have a lot of exciting things planned for this update, and we have of course listened to your feedback and suggestions, and can barely wait until we can show you more.

Here is a picture of the team from our last Hearth and Home-meeting, going strong from our home offices. Have a fantastic weekend, and happy Ostara!

Valheim passes 10 million units sold

Development team Iron Gate Studio have announced that their Viking survival game Valheim has now surpassed 10m sales just over one year since its Steam Early Access release. They also revealed that it had an all-time player peak of 502,000 players and almost 300,000 'Overwhelmingly Positive' reviews and development of the upcoming Mistlands biome is ongoing.

Personally I am eagerly awaiting the new biome as I have been wanting to get back into the game for a while after playing a lot of it at launch.​
