If Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla is no longer scratching your Viking itch then you’re going to want to get upcoming game Valheim on your Steam wishlist.
Developed by Iron Gate AB and published by Coffee Stain Publishing, Valheim is an upcoming multiplayer survival game which is sure to make your Viking fantasies come to life.
The title promises to pit viking versus viking in a “procedurally-generated purgatory” which promises to deliver a different experience every single time you dive in.
Valheim will have a huge open world to explore, packed with “creatures of legend to battle and wildlife to hunt.” Playable both in single player and with online co-op, Valheim will have you building and sailing ships, battling mythical bosses and even building a base.
“A battle-slain warrior, the Valkyries have ferried your soul to Valheim, the tenth Norse world,” says the game’s official description. “Besieged by creatures of chaos and ancient enemies of the gods, you are the newest custodian of the primordial purgatory, tasked with slaying Odin’s ancient rivals and bringing order to Valheim.
“Your trials begin at the disarmingly peaceful centre of Valheim, but the gods reward the brave and glory awaits. Venture forth through imposing forests and snow-capped mountains, explore and harvest more valuable materials to craft deadlier weapons, sturdier armor, viking strongholds and outposts. Build a mighty longship and sail the great oceans in search of exotic lands … but be wary of sailing too far…”
From the sounds of things, there’s going to be even more to do in Valheim than there is in Ubisoft’s latest Assassin’s Creed epic, and the good news is that it’s coming soon!
If Valheim is sounding like a dream come true for you, you’l be pleased to know it’s coming to Steam Early Access on February 2nd, 2021. Wishlist it right now on Steam!
