Valheim: The steam hit continues to break all records!

Valheim: The steam hit continues to break all records!


At the beginning of this month, the early access phase of the survival game Valheim was launched. At the same time, it was the start of a considerable success story, because the Iron Gate title hit Steam like a bomb. And the big hype doesn't seem to be over for a long time, as a new status update from the development team proves.

As Iron Gate announced on the Steam community website, there are now more than four Millions of Valheim copies sold - just three weeks after the early access start. Many other games only reach this mark much later - if at all.

Valheim: You haven't seen the survival hit like this yet

You can now play the currently very popular survival game Valheim from the first person perspective. var lstExcludedArticleTicker = '1367610,1367551,1367534,1367468'; Not only is it a respectable number in and of itself, it also means a million copies sold within a week. Valheim was only able to break the 3 million mark in this regard last Friday.

But the other numbers that Iron Gate announced as part of the status update are also interesting. Accordingly, at peak times, more than half a million players cavort simultaneously in the survival world of Valheim. All told, they spent more than 10,000 years in the game. That's 3.6 million days more than the game is on the market at all. In addition, it is still one of the most positively rated games on Steam and is in this category in the Top 100. In the Steam sales charts, it has been number one for several weeks in a row.

Valheim update fixes world destroyer bug, makes bosses harder

Although it sounds a little like the Norse idea of Ragnarök, shortly after Valheim's launch some players discovered a serious 'world-destroyer' bug that could reset your progress - a problem that was very much not intended. Thankfully, developer Iron Gate Studio has today rolled out a patch to address that, so now the main bug you need to worry about is the Deathsquito.

As reported by players at the time, it seems the world destroyer bug was indeed connected to logging out and pressing ALT+F4 at the same time. Following the patch, this will no longer cause the end of days.

Elsewhere in the patch notes, Iron Gate explains the biggest change is the 'updated socketed backend' which should help improve connection issues. Vulkan support has also been added for Windows users to help with some crashes related to GPU drivers, and can be enabled by adding '-force-vulkan' as a launch option in the Steam properties menu for Valheim.

More amusingly, it seems that some of Valheim's bosses weren't quite challenging enough, with Iron Gate explaining 'u guys are killing them too fast'. The patch notes say that balancing fixes have been made to a number of bosses to make them more difficult, including Bonemass, Moder and Yagluth. At least you'll have a little longer to run away from Deathsquitos - the horrible things now have a slightly longer audio range.

As for the funky harpoon physics that created a Viking space race, the patch notes mention a 'harpooned player and ship bug fix', which could refer to the exploit some people were using to make their ships sail faster. Back to wind power you go.

The full patch notes list a couple more performance changes, including a tombstone bug fix (although apparently this won't entirely eliminate the disappearing tombstones bug). It's worth noting that if you're renting a server for Valheim, you may need to update and restart it to prevent a black screen following the update. Or maybe try lighting a torch.
