Valheim continues to be willing to make history. Iron Gate, the small team of just five people in charge of the project, currently in early access, has announced that the video game has exceeded 4 million units sold worldwide since its premiere on February 2; one more milestone that adds to the records that he does not stop breaking every week.

The title of survival and exploration in a Viking world embraces the epic and, not content with reaching a peak of 500,000 concurrent players on the night of February 21 – fifth best historical data on Steam, Valve’s digital platform -, Now we know that their positive reviews rank Valve as one of the 250 highest rated video games in the store’s history; specifically the number 57. We are talking about more than 81,000 “extremely positive” reviews, a reflection that the game is not only being successful in sales, but that its fans are enjoying it a lot.
The trend is constantly upward.

If just six days ago we knew that there were 3 million units shipped and those records were achieved; with a million more it is very possible that this weekend we will have new maximum data in terms of simultaneity of active players. On February 16, 2 million players were reported, so in just nine days sales have doubled.

Valheim is in development, currently in early access, priced at € 16.79 on Steam. The Swedish studio is now looking to expand its assets in order to move forward with more speed in development and support a community of more than half a million users on weekends. How far this phenomenon will go is something we do not know; his name is already part of the history of the video game in 2021.
