Welcome, Viking!

Monthly developer update: Hearth & Home coming on September 16th!


A month has passed since we spoke to you last, and we’ve got more exciting news to share. As many of you might have already seen, our Hearth & Home cinematic trailer debuted during Gamescom Opening Night Live, announcing that the update is going live on September 16th. It brings us joy to finally be able to share the trailer with you - here it is in case you haven’t seen it yet:


A million thanks to our awesome friends at animation studio Brikk for bringing the Viking purgatory to life - Bragi is surely smiling down on you.

From September 16th, we’ll be introducing new content that will expand your gameplay options, including new furniture, building pieces, food and more! We’ve begun introducing some of the core Hearth & Home gameplay changes through a series of short walkthrough videos on our socials, so make sure to check those out here.

We know you’re eager to see the new content as soon as possible - do not fret, children of the Allfather! While we’ve already revealed some of the new items in our previous Steam posts, here’s a peek at two other notable additions:



We cannot wait for you to dive into the game and discover the content update for yourselves. We’ve created Valheim to be a world of intrigue and mystery, and while we would love to share a full list of items coming in Hearth & Home with you right this very moment, we think it’s best if you discover these yourselves.

Last but not least, we have some exciting internal news as well. Our team of five will now welcome three new individuals as we continue to work on future updates. Please meet our new animator Christoffer Solgevik, our new programmer Jonathan Smårs and Andreas Thomasson who will be managing our QA.

Thank you for your continued support, whether it be amazing fan art, breathtaking builds or just really good memes. May your axes never dull, and may Odin’s blessing be upon you.

We’ll see you on September 16th - may the gods watch over you.

Interesting, might be time to warm up the old wardrum and start recruiting vikings.
