Since the release of Valheim launched in Early Access in February, it’s been quite the headache for the Iron Gate developers for their Viking survival game. But now it looks like, they are ready to settle it down and focus to bring their ever-growing legion of fans a few new contents. Iron Gate has shared a new development update, which does promise the game’s upcoming “Hearth and Home” update is going to be their main concern going forward.
”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! […] It has been a hectic time, but worry not! We are of course still working on the game.”
“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 playtesting and bug fixing, but as things are calming down since launch, we can spend more time working on our first big update! 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.”
Iron Gate has posted an image of the Hearth and Home teaser…
Iron Gate has confirmed that the Hearth and Home update is going to mainly focus on expanding the cooking and base-building aspects of Valheim. Let’s hope we will get a more meaningful teaser in the upcoming time.
Valheim is now available via Steam Early Access. But there is still no full version release date that has come out.
