Ancient Ruins Unearthed

Welcome back, vikings! Spring is well under way, and we’ve put Easter behind us. If you keep up with our social media, you might have noticed that we shared a little special something during the holiday – a speed modelling video of the hare creature we showed a concept artwork of a while back, now complete with a glimpse at how it will look when it moves around in the world! If you haven’t seen it yet, you can watch it here:


Don’t worry though, the hare will be in the Mistlands all year round, not just during Easter! Aside from the hare, we’ve also been working on creating another kind of inhabitants for the Mistlands, though we’d like to keep them a surprise for you for a little longer. What we can say, however, is that we think they’ll be something many of you have been curious about!

Just like the other areas of Valheim, the Mistlands were once a place where civilisations of old built homes and strongholds alike. In the past month we have been finalising the designs of these structures and we quite like how they fit in the world! They might change somewhat as they still need to be weathered and turned into ruins to show just how long they’ve been standing, but here are a couple of screenshots for you:



On a more technical note, we’ve also been looking into a solution for a cloud sync issue where players have gotten their saves overwritten and replaced with earlier versions. Losing progress is always very unfortunate, so getting this fixed is something we’ve been keen on and really want to get right! Just like with other updates to the game lately, this patch will come to the Public Test branch before we push it to the Default version of the game, so keep an eye out for that if you want to help testing it!

Build of the Month
And for the Build of the Month, it was a tough choice but we have decided on this creation by Vainotheviking! Great work! If you would like your own building to be shared in the next blog post, simply use the hashtag #ValheimBotM when posting on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.


That’s all for now!
