Development Blog December: Happy Holidays!

Time moves fast and we’ve already reached the end of 2021. It’s been an incredible year, and we’re excited to keep on working towards making Valheim the best game it can be!

Along with our last blog here on Steam we also released a smaller content patch featuring a brand new creature, and it was so much fun to see all of your reactions to that little surprise! We really hope you’ll be just as excited about the upcoming update for the Mountains when that launches!

Speaking of that content, it’s getting more and more complete. We aim to be able to release it early next year, but until then we thought we’d give you yet another sneak peek:


As the development of the caves is gradually progressing, that means more and more energy can be focused on the Mistlands update. There’s a lot to be done in order to bring you a whole biome, as we need to establish everything from resources and new things to craft, to enemies and the big bad boss, but we’re really liking what we have so far!

In case you missed it, last week it was finally time for the Game Awards! The competition was strong and we unfortunately didn’t win anything, but it was an honor to just be nominated in the first place, and we’d like to thank every single one of you who gave us your vote!

Since it’s now December, some of you may have a little bit of downtime given the holidays of first Yuletide and then New Years. If you’re planning on playing Valheim a lot during that period, you might even have some extra incentive to do so, as there will be a little bit of a competition coming up… Keep an eye out on our socials next week to find out more! And even if you’re not inclined towards competitions, we hope you’ll have a grand time in Valheim anyway with the seasonal Yule tree and Yuleklapp building items! We were also able to finish a little holiday gift for you all in the form of an armor stand the other day, so that you can finally display the gear you’re no longer using. We hope you like it!
