Valheim, the Viking Survival Exploration Saga Sails onto Steam Early Access Today

Coffee Stain Publishing and Iron Gate Studio are pleased to announce that Valheim, their brand new open-world exploration co-op survival game, is now available on Steam Early Access. Whether looking to go at it alone or aided by a team of your most trusted allies, all budding Vikings seeking a challenge of true mythological proportions, can enter the primordial purgatory from today.

Valheim is an immense, procedurally-generated world where battle-slain warriors are invited to explore the seemingly peaceful landscapes and oceans, only to discover that they are overrun by the mightiest creatures born of Norse mythology. Valheim’s multiplayer PvE gameplay currently allows up to 10 player co-op, but is best enjoyed with 3-5. A key focus for the Early Access period is to further establish the perfect number of viking settlers.

Players must gather resources, build better, stronger weapons and armour, construct homes and castles, carts and longships, explore intimidating dungeons and set sail in search of new shores, until all of Odin’s enemies are dead – only then will your soul find peace.

Valheim’s beta testing phase occurred in part during the ancient Norse celebration of Dísablót, or ‘The Sacrifice to the Disir’. Then, ritualistic sacrifices and mighty banquets took place to honor the female deities and spirits, such as the Valkyries, in hope they would ensure a bountiful harvest. In the same spirit of celebration, all Vikings who signed up to sacrifice their lives during the beta testing period will soon be rewarded by Iron Gate Studio with exclusive items, which include Odin’s cape, hood and drinking horn.

“During our time in beta, we’ve already started to build an awesome community, with players excited to provide valuable feedback and showcase some of the wildest things they have encountered and constructed when exploring the world of Valheim,” said Richard Svensson, CEO, Iron Gate Studio. “Now, the gates of Valheim are finally open, and we’re really happy to share it with the world, and to continue developing Valheim into an experience Odin would be proud of.”

“Valheim is a singular experience. Building your home and settlement with friends is cosy and satisfying, and a stark contrast to the enormous untamed world full of monsters that lurks outside,” said Albert Säfström, CEO, Coffee Stain Publishing. “We’re looking forward to hearing what players think of Valheim, and we’re excited for what’s to come for the game in its Early Access phase.”

Valheim is now available for $19.99 on Steam Early Access for PC and Linux, check it out now!
