The survival and exploration title set in Viking culture does not stop growing in players and viewers. Has it come to stay?
Valheim has surpassed one million units sold through Steam in its early days available as Early Access. The video game from the small Iron Gate studio, accompanied by Coffee Stain Publishing in its edition, faces a week of continued growth in players and viewers on portals such as Twitch; a title called to be a trend whose figures support these qualifiers.
The game’s official Twitter account, which has gone from having just over 6,000 followers this Monday to more than 14,000 on Thursday morning, has released the news on this social network: 1,000,000 Vikings are already fighting for survival in this multiplayer work where the environments are procedurally generated. It is possible to explore and inhabit lands; play cooperatively and fight against all kinds of enemies from which to get resources; build ships, houses, bases, objects like weapons and armor… Valheim has dedicated servers. This Wednesday patch 0.143.5 was released with bug fixes.
So far, Velheim has managed to have a peak of 188,840 players, with an average of 71,394 users connected per day. If last Monday was the sixth most played game on Steam, now we see it in third position; ahead of PUBG, Rust, Apex Legends or Team Fortress 2.
