Good god, has it been one year of Valheim already? PC Gamer’s 2021 Game of the Year celebrates its first birthday this week, and broke the news with a skitterish peek at what’s in store for its second year.
February 2nd marks one year since Valheim first hit Steam and subsequently became the biggest thing of early 2021—something Iron Gate felt extremely thankful for in an announcement post marking the occasion.
“We never could have imagined that Valheim would get as big as it did, and it’s all thanks to you players. We’re going to celebrate throughout the whole month of February, and we’ve got some fun stuff planned for you – keep an eye on our social media pages to make sure you don’t miss anything!”
While not overly forthcoming with future plans, Iron Gate noted that it’s hoping to get Valheim Steam Deck ready for the time of the handheld’s release this month, as well as wrapping up development on the upcoming Mountains update. The studio has also ramped up work on a new Mistlands biome, and while it’s still early days, Iron Gate did share concept art of this delightful wee beastie.
I’m sure they’re lovely, and definitely not the kind of giant bug that hungers for viking bones.
With Valheim’s birthday tying into Steam’s Lunar New Year sale, Iron Gate is extending the discounted price on Steam until the end of the weekend.
